Azealia Banks Starts Twitter Beef with Diplo, Releases 'Harlem Shake' Video

A Twitter argument featuring a Perez Hilton cameo.

Last week Azealia Banks released a remix of 'Harlem Shake'. She has since shared the video which is basically a play-by-play reenactment of what I imagine myself to look like when dancing in the club.

EVERYONE CHILL.
