It should be pretty clear to everyone by now that Azealia Banks has become much more famous for her social media beefs then for her actual raps. Normally using Twitter as the powerful source to spread her rage. It was great when Angel Haze and Azealia started to pick on each other. Great rap beefs should always result in nothing more then good old fashion ‘entertainment’ for us right? Its something us Hip-Hop fans look forward too – rivalry. At the end of the day its all about being the best and if that means hiding behind computer screens to do it then fine, just as long as you make something out of it and put out good music. Nas and Jay-Z did it. So did Eazy-E and Dr. Dre, and what did that result in? Some of the most legendary Hip-Hop tracks of all time but most importantly, entertainment. So this is why I have chosen the top 10 most ‘entertaining’ Azealia Banks moments:
1. Baauer – Harlem Shake (Azealia Banks Cover):
Azealia Banks uploaded this cover of Baauer’s ‘Harlem Shake’ on her SoundCloud page and was instantly taken down by Baauer’s people (and when I say people I mean Diplo). After the song was deleted from her page she quickly made this video and uploaded it ILLEGALLY onto Vimeo. Honestly, I hate the fact that she used Baauer’s viral success and jumped on the band wagon with this cover (and the fact that she called him gay) but I don’t think anyone could have done a better job at rhyming over this beat the way she did.

Moments after cancelling her performance on Music Future Festival in Australia, she striked again with another Twitter rang storm and decides to reveal her new track for upcoming album ‘#Yung Rapunxel’ and her frightening new album cover. #SMART :
