Controversial rapper Azealia Banks tore into fellow hip-hop artist Wale Wednesday after he took aim at Banks’ comments on Black men and Black media. The 24-year-old said on Twitter that she doesn’t feel protected by her male counterparts in the industry. Wale decided to reply to Banks’ tweet.

It was downhill after that. Banks angrily ripped Wale in now-deleted tweets, according to Inquisitor. Banks asserted Wale should fear her. She went on to blame Black men for enslaving Africans and said Black women were never good enough for Black men.

“As you should be! With that said, I am a VERY generous woman. I share with everyone I come into contact with. Maybe the fear comes from realizing that there is something stronger than the almighty black man.

“When white men showed up on our shores [in Africa] with guns and technology you black men SOLD US OUT for guns and Christianity. The only prosperity Africa ever saw was under female rule. We birthed, [nurtured], and educated you all and you turned around and sold us OUT. And you lot continue to sell us out and throw shadows on us as you all continue to compete with white men”

“Black women are never good enough for the black man. And I’ve spent more than enough time being belittled and disregarded by black men…so until a black man comes along who is willing to hoist me up on the pedestal I belong on, I’ll settle for the confusing, contradictory, counter-productive pedestal that white men put me on. At least there I can be a WOMAN, and enjoy being desired…”

Wale replied, saying some Black men appreciate Black women.

Banks wasn’t having it, though. She continued to tweet the rapper as she stuck to her idea that Black men don’t value Black women.

“Again, a black man making reason for why his woman Isn’t good enough. This hurts me so much. Once you lot [of men] realize that we are the ONLY true friends you have on this planet, the black race will succeed. Until then I’ll be looking for the whitest man I can find. In spite of you.”

“Black women will lead the revolution. And you black men will not reap any of the benefits. You will pay for this. I promise. I’m honestly in tears right now. F––––you wale. And f–––– you forever. If I could put all the n––––––– who think like you in jail, I would. Because n–––––– like YOU are IN MY M––––––––––––WAY…”

The 31-year-old rapper shot back saying he stands up for Black men as Banks blew past all of his points.

Banks then attacked Black male thought patterns.

“For every black female accomplishment, blck male ideology takes four steps backwards.”

The Boom Box managed to get some screenshots of Banks’ next few tweets where she urged the rapper to vote for Hillary Clinton and head to jail. Her language is NSFW.


Wale tried to rise above Banks’ comments.

But the rapper seemed angrier than ever by the end of the battle.



The D.C. rapper ultimately got the final say in the feud. He described the lack of understanding Black men deal with.

Then, Wale accused Banks of being a white supremacist.

According to Inquisitor, “Clayton Bigsby” refers to a fictional character on the “Dave Chappelle Show.” The character was a blind Black man who grew up thinking he was white. He wound up becoming a white supremacist.

The feud ended with Wale’s name-calling.

This is the second Twitter beef Banks has engaged in this week. The rapper ended her long-standing feud with Erykah Badu with an apology encouraged by a fan on Twitter. Badu said Banks is an advocate for Black people. Banks thanked the singer for helping her mother through heartbreak.
