Keeper of the trap T.I. is keeping his hot war with LaGuardia High School grad Azealia Banks alive, and it’s not pretty. A quick background: Banks took issue with Australian rapper and XXL Freshman Iggy Azalea earlier this year, and T.I. was quick to respond on behalf of his signee, thus setting off a loud ongoing war of words. Today, the Atlanta-bred rapper appeared on WCGI’s The Morning Riot today and went off, saying:
“I ain’t even know nothin’ about it. I didn’t even see it. I know they going through their thing, but the fact that she’s speaking upon me and mine, that is what I consider bitch shit. I’m a man. You ain’t got no business addressing me.”
Banks — who generally handles her own business — was quick to tweet a response:
Ain’t you the same dude that got photographed butt naked n a pair of sneakers and a beanie?
This escalating beef comes as each of the three rappers are preparing new material; Banks is working on her September release Broke With Expensive Taste, T.I. on his long-awaited Trouble Man, and Azalea on The New Classic, due in June.
