Tiny Fires Back at Azealia Banks: ‘Who Is She?’

Tiny

On her fourth wedding anniversary, Tameka “Tiny” Harris stopped by Power 105.1′s “The Breakfast Club” to promote her much-talked-about single “What You Gon’ Do?”

The former Xscape member opened up about her relationship with husband T.I. and said that they are still together despite all the rumors.

She insisted that she wasn’t trying to make T.I. jealous by befriending Floyd Mayweather, but wasn’t interested in talking about the boxing champ. “I don’t wanna talk about Floyd,” she said.

As of now, she doesn’t plan on putting out an album, but may consider releasing an EP with five or six songs.

In June, Azealia Banks and T.I. got into another feud after the “212″ rapper dissed Tiny on Twitter.

“U want no mediocre but … Have you seen your wife?” tweeted Banks.

Tiny shot back with some fiery words of her own. Read what she had to say below.
