After a brief back and forth spawned by a fan asking Erykah Badu if she listened to Azealia Banks, Banks is responding to the matter for a second consecutive day via Twitter. After Badu said she ‘tried’ listening to Banks and was possibly ‘too old,’ Banks accused her of ageism, jealousy, and throwing shade. Viewers and various media outlets read into Badu turning on Twitter’s location feature to indicate she was in Queens, New York, and Badu confirmed as much in a subsequent tweet.
Apparently not done with the matter, Azealia Banks resumed things Sunday morning by calling Badu an ‘old lady’ and saying the act of turning on her location was ‘childish.’
Since debuting in 1996, Erykah Badu has won four GRAMMY Awards and has three albums certified as platinum or better by the Recording Industry Association of America. Azealia Banks was formerly signed to Interscope and independently released the projects Broke With Expensive Taste and Fantasea.
