Azealia Banks has let rip at Future Music headliners The Stone Roses claiming that they deliberately tried to sabotage her set at the festival in Sydney yesterday. Banks, who has a history of online battles, slammed the Manchester band via her Twitter account, writing “You’ve got an established band trying to sabotage my lil rap bitch shine”.
According to Rolling Stone, Banks then launched into a series of tweets, which you can read below. They have since been removed from her account.
@AZEALIABANKS: Fuck those old saggy white niggas stone roses. I wish them nothing but excrement and death.
@AZEALIABANKS: Wow a bunch of old white men trying to bully a young black girl…. What the fuck else is new in this world ???
@AZEALIABANKS: Wow! I must really fucking be a superstar… You’ve got an established band trying to sabotage my lil rap bitch shine.
The Stone Roses have not responded to Banks’ claims. More updates as they come in.
It seems Azealia’s day ended on a high despite her issues with The Stone Roses. Banks joined The Prodigy on stage later in the evening, describing the performance as “the highlight of her trip”.
Performing on stage with The Prodigy was the HIGHLIGHT of this trip.
