Azealia Banks Turns Lizzo Apology into Unhinged Diss of Busta Rhymes

She accuses the rapper of still drinking molly water in 2023

Leave it to Azealia Banks to turn an apology into an unhinged smackdown of someone else. While attempting to make her peace with Lizzo, the rapper had some choice words for Busta Rhymes seemingly out of nowhere.

Earlier this week, Banks took to her Instagram story to apologize for some comments she made about the controversial flautist in 2019. Regardless of how you feel about Lizzo, it's safe to say this apology is deserved, as Banks is quoted as saying, "Lmao the fact that the public and the media has been keeping this fat girl joke going for so long is honestly peak boredom." 

We feel no such sympathy for known homophobe Busta Rhymes, who subsequently got torn apart by Banks in a series of words that have never been strung together before — making many Exclaim! staffers cackle-sob when this writer read it out loud at the office. The poetry reads as follows:

I was having a conversation last night and I realized I owe @lizzobeeating a huge apology for popping so much shit.

If hop-hop will allow a 55+ severely overweight @bustarhymes who exhibits major signs of anabolic steroid abuse, adrenal gland failure and constipation, and will allow him to have a face full of blackheads and acne from what appears to be testosterone shot abuse...

ALL whilst drinking molly water in 2023 and wearing cartoon-like neon yellow fake gold slick Rick chains...

We have absolutely no right to be trying to skewer a YOUNG Black woman — for anything.

Points were made, just like that one time Banks said Chris Martin should get on some "Billy Idol shit" if he ever goes solo. Finding out that her musings aren't inspired by molly water consumption also comes as a shock, but honestly, one can achieve a similar amount of euphoria by reading the best of her insults.

It must be made abundantly clear this article is not an endorsement of Banks, who also recently made some homophobic and transphobic comments at the expense of Troye Sivan. This is merely the result of a chronically online Social Media Goblin scraping the bottom of the barrel for content. Besides, it wouldn't be a day on the job if your boss doesn't hear you read the phrase "a face full of blackheads from what appears to be testosterone shot abuse" out loud.
