Azealia Banks and T.I. Fight Dirty On Social Media

"At least I can read! LOL."

Ahh Twitter beef — everyone's favourite blood sport. Today's installment involves social media badgerer Azealia Banks vs fellow rapper (and Iggy Azelea collaborator on the new track 'No Mediocre') T.I. Background note: these two have been on bad terms since 2012, and following the release of T.I.'s new single (featuring Iggy), Banks let loose on Twitter.

Whoa, now. Assumedly T.I.'s immediate response to these and more (now deleted) tweets was something along the lines of:

But he took to Instagram for a more imaginative and in-depth assessment of Azealia's personality, calling her a "maggot-ass bitch", a "ungly-ass [sic] Gremlin baby" and threatening to "end" her. Do you kiss your mama with that mouth?

The rapper's wife also took to Instagram to post what is probably the only good thing to come out of this fight; Rihanna.

The shade! The shade of it all. Azealia responded to this by threatening to sue him for threatening her, and then everything unravelled into a Twitter rant about him going to jail and the direction that rap seems to be going in. All deleted now too, sadly. Our advice for all involved?
