Azealia Banks Wishes “Death and Excrement” on The Stone Roses

Someone call the Twitter police; Azealia Banks has an axe to grind. 

What do Jim Jones, T.I., Nicki Minaj, Baauer, and Perez Hilton all have in common? Azealia Banks is not their friend.  Even after several slur filled rantsjust last month, Banks apparently has no intentions of backing down—or cancelling her Twitter account.

After using Twitter to apologize to her fans “on behalf of the stone roses” who she alleges “made a pact” with her ex tour manager to “sabotage” her set during the Future Music Festival in Australia by checking their equipment behind her while she was on stage, she went on to personally attack the band with a series of tweets including:

“F--k those old saggy white ni--as stone roses. I wish them nothing but excrement and death.”

“Wow! I must really f--king be a superstar... You've got an established band trying to sabotage my lil rap bitch shine.?”


“Wow a bunch of old white men trying to bully a young black girl.... What the f--k else is new in this world ???”

Although Banks has since deleted the more inflamatory tweets, they can be found in all of their screen shot glory here.

But the real burning question here is: how often does Azealia Banks play The Oregon Trail? “Excrement and death”?--sounds like a certain disease involving rather unsavory bodily functions? I think what she meant to tweet was “@stoneroses: You Have Died of Dysentery.
