The beef between rising hip-hop stars Azealia Banks and A$AP Rocky has just gotten nasty. An argument which started about, of all things, lipstick has now turned into a full blown beef, with Azealia posting a picture of A$AP in aÂ compromisingÂ position with another man, followed by Rocky posting an innapropriate picture of Banks holding a...well, you get the gist.
The feud started when Rocky recently expressed his opinions on black girls wearing red lipstick, saying, "But for real, for me, I feel like with the red lipstick thing it all depends on the pair of complexion. Iâ€™m just being for real. You have to be fair skinned to get away with that. Just like if you were to wear likeâ€”f*cking for instance, what do dark skin girls have that you know fair skinned girls cant doâ€¦ Purple lipstick? Naw, that looks stupid on all girls! Purple lipstick, guys! Like, what the fuckâ€¦"
Despite the fact that A$AP didn't single out Azealia in his comments, the young rapper, who is almost as famous for her bold lipstick as she is for her Twitter rants, took the dig as a personal insult. "Lol @ asap rockys lipstick advice,â€ she Tweeted, continuing: â€œSome people should just come out of the closet.â€ Banks justified her accusations by saying: â€œSo rocky takes a direct blow to my image about dark skin and purple lipstick, then as soon as I'm a offended .... I'm the bad guy.â€
This is where things got ugly. In an attempt to prove her claims were true, Banks posted a picture of Rocky in a rather intimate position with a man named Kenneth.
In retaliation, Kenneth himself Tweeted out the following, rather more personal picture of Bambi (note that this is definitely NSFW):
And, for once, Banks seems to have nothing to Tweet.
What do you think of the feud? Is it ridiculous or was A$APÂ deliberatelyÂ trying to call out Banks? More importantly, given the pictures we've just seen, which of the Harlem rappers would you rather get it in with: A$AP or Azealia? Let us know at the forum!
