Azealia Banks is shaking things up once again. After splitting with Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter earlier this week, the hip-hop dynamo has deleted her Twitter page and is distancing herself from the rap game.
The “212” hitmaker ignited controversy with her fiery tweets aimed at Iggy Azalea, T.I., and Lil’ Kim. But she’s done making noise on the social networking service, for now at least.
“No longer wishing to be a rapper,” she wrote. “i never was…. and as soon as i started paying attention to bullshit urban media, i started getting myself in trouble. From now on i’m a vocalist, and will not be associating myself with the ‘rap game’… or whatever the fuck that means… no more twitter for me… it makes me entirely too accessible.”
However, just because she doesn’t want to be labeled a “rapper,” doesn’t mean she’s hanging up the mic. “I’m still going to rap,” said Banks. “i just don’t want the label and all the other crap that comes with the ‘rap game’… it’s boring. rather be a dance artist.. lol.”
If you still want to stay connected with Banks, you can visit her on Tumblr. “Catch me on tumblr… it’ll be more interesting.”
Her first order of business once leaving Twitter was to debut the cover art for “Aquababe,” the second single off her mixtape Fantasea, due July 4.
