Boring-Ass Beef Update: Azealia Banks vs Kreayshawn, No Age & Fleet Foxes vs Kings of Leon, Common vs Drake
Beef is beneficial for both parties involved: Music outlets love covering it, fans love chiming in, and any collateral damage to dignity or self-respect can be dealt with later. Just because "haters gonna hate" doesn't mean one mustn't respond in full, no matter how insipid, juvenile, or dull the affront to one's music or style. In this edition of "Beef," we join in the spirit of shallow bickering, rounding up a few of the music industry's latest races to the bottom.
"Gucci Gucci" viral star Keayshawn and brand new Universal Music signee Azealia Banks discovered there's no better place to manufacture beef than Twitter. Earlier this month, Kreayshawn actually gave props to Banks and tweeted a link to Banks' newest music video. The offense? The version of the video she tweeted was hosted on a porn website. D'oh!
A beef of this magnitude felt imminent. We all know there's no way hip-hop can manage having two rising-star female rappers at once, because that would upset the matriarchal power system!
We didn't even have to pit them against each other; these two rhyme-slaying ladies started aimlessly dissing each other on their own! Hey Judith Butler, smell this Grade-A pile of regressive gender performance BEEF!
Damn, girl! I just did a Z-snap so fast my nose needs a skin graft. Or is that just the noxious odor of e. coli enzymes on this BEEF? #swag
