AZEALIA BANKS STARTS SPAT WITH BAAUER OVER 'HARLEM SHAKE'

Azealia Banks is no stranger to causing arguments via social networks. She had a full scale Twitter brawl with producer Munchi last year and now man of the moment Baauer is her next target.

Azealia has taken Baauer's track 'Harlem Shake' and used it as the backing for a new bootleg. Baauer naturally made a copyright claim blocking the track and this is when Banks stepped in and launched into a tirade.

She first tweeted at Baauer saying "why you coccblockin tho??? Lmaoooooo" to which he replied "cause its not ur song lol".

The short and sweet reply seemed to rile Banks up further with her replies branding the producer a "faggot" and a "pussy".

'Harlem Shake' has gone viral with thousands of spin-off videos now on YouTube as well as hitting number one in the iTunes chart and number three in the UK official charts.

It appears that no-one is safe from Azealia's wrath, with Mad Decent boss Diplo being dragged into the argument. She tweeted saying that the reason she couldn't use the track was because they would rather have Juicy J rapping on it instead.

This was then followed with: "diplo you’re a real fucking snake. you owe M.I.A everything you have."

Maybe her PRs need to invest in a muzzle.

Check out Bank's bootleg below and head over to her Twitter to read more.
