Azealia Banks Apologizes to Lil' Kim

  /  11.04.2017

After issuing an apology to Nicki Minaj, Azealia Banks is making amends with another one of her former foes, Lil’ Kim.

In 2012, Banks bashed the Queen Bee over an ill-fated collaboration. “Lil’ Kim got mad that I wrote a verse for her on a record I wanted her on,” she said at the time. “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.”

Now, five years removed, Banks says that the issue was a misunderstanding. “Apologies if when I sent that verse you thought I was trying to write for you – I wasn’t,” she wrote via Instagram on Friday (Nov. 3). “I only sent the reference because I just wanted to map the song out.” She continued by proclaiming that she still loves and adores Kim. “I hope one day we can link in person and straighten things out because I was sooo confused and heartbroken when our collab fell thru.”

The Queen Bee responded to Azealia’s apology. “That was so sweet of u,” she wrote back on IG. “I’m so proud of ur constant attempt at growth. … Always wanted to tell u that u r so talented I’m sure our paths will cross again.”

Back in 2012, Banks also claimed: “It really sucks when someone you respect and admire is trying to act brand new when all u did was reach out and try to work.”

At the time, Kim’s publicist, C.J. Carter, responded with a statement: “It honestly seems that someone from Azealia’s team would rather have her fans buy into manufactured drama instead of buying music. Kim knows nothing of any beef, and furthermore has had nothing but nice things to say about her. We don’t know what this is and will not address this any further. It seems that this is another sad attempt by someone trying to use my client for publicity. We wish her nothing but the best.”
