Azealia Banks vs. Lil Kim

Azealia Banks decided to air out hip hop veteran Lil Kim via Twitter. This weekend, Banks and Kim's reps went on a back-and-forth war of words in the media--all stemming from Banks supposedly getting Kim to appear on a track with her.
"Okay so true tea is that Lil Kim got mad that I wrote a verse for her on a record I wanted her on.," she tweeted. "Everyone knows Lil Kim doesn't write her own raps and I saw this as a faster more efficient way of getting the track done."
"She then had her assistant write me some long ass offensive email about how Lil Kim writes her own raps and doesn't need anyone's help," Banks continued. "So..... My question was and is still... IS SHE DOING THE TRACK?"
"Who cares about what you use to do.... WILL YOU DO THE TRACK??!" she added. "All this extra sh*t is stupid. Keep closing your own doors ma. @lilkim"
Azealia concluded her rant with "There is no beef. At all."
Lil Kim's people issued a statement addressing the controversy.
"My client and azealia have NEVER spoke to one another or met AT ALL," the poorly-worded statement reads. "Kim was actually very flattered azealia's public admiration for her, which is why it's so hard to understand how someone who claims to be a true Lil Kim fan could flip the script so easily on someone who was supposedly their idol. It is also VERY interesting that NO ONE from her team made any attempts to reach out to anyone from our team to voice any concerns or problems that they may have had. I have NEVER heard of anyone having a conflict with someone they have NEVER met with or personally spoke with. We have no idea what they are referencing and have no desire to discuss the matter any further as there is nothing to talk about. It honestly seems that someone from azealia's team would rather have her fans buy into manufactured drama instead of buying music."
Banks just fired back. "All the time it took u to get ur team to issue a press release bout this YOU COULDA WROTE THE VERSE!!!" she tweeted. "You DO know that YOUR management where the ones who said u needed us to write a reference verse in the first place .. Right?"
"Another week, another twitter feud. I'm deleting it now."
