Azealia Banks Calls Out T.I. for Dissing Donald Trump
There are plenty of rappers who have been vocal about their disdain for Donald Trump, but T.I. has seemed to go at the presidential hopeful's neck every chance he gets on social media. Most recently he referred to Trump as the "upper echelon of the scum of the earth" on an Instagram post, which drew the ire of one of the billionaire's stanch supporters Azealia Banks.
The Harlem MC recently took to Instagram to call out Tip over his statements saying his past doesn't give him any room to talk about Trump. "Upper echelon of the scum of the earth..." ........ Someone PLEASE take the thesaurus away from t.i.... Real sweet coming from the guy who is 5'2", endorsed a runaway slave master, has multiple felony weapon convictions, let's his kids carry guns, and publicly threatens women with physical harm..... Real sweet," she wrote.
She continued, "No one should be looking to t.i for insight of any kind. #trump2016 #niggazarefullofshit. You guys come hard at me for my opinions but so many of these rap dudes have terrible past lives and can barely string a sentence together. Ask yourselves who the real bad role model is..... LOL, how's he also in the roots remake tho ?! Perpetuating the same terrible stories of slavery which perpetually plague our culture due to the imagery being re-iterated over and over again. Black history is deeper than trans-Atlantic slavery. No respectable black person in 2016 should be playing a slave on film. Sorry, this is sidebar and I'm TOTALLY being a petty hater (lol) but t.i is literally an idiot , i love picking on him, and he and everyone else needs to know that I am 10x more intelligent than he is or ever will be. He owes me a major apology for threatening me and for running his mouth off."
Banks and T.I. have had their problems in the past. Back in 2012, they had an issue after T.I. came to the defense of his then artist Iggy Azalea when she had an issue with Banks, and got caught in the crossfire.
