Azealia Banks just dropped the video for her “Harlem Shake Remix.” Just to prove she really doesn’t care what creator of the (new) song, Baauer, had to say about her using his track.
Peep the hair twirling video inside….
Azealia Banks loves to stir the pot of drama. But this time, we don’t really think it’s her fault.
This “Harlem Shake” craze taking over Youtube and everywhere else–where one person in a group starts dancing to the Electro House track, then the camera cuts to everyone in the camera shot doing their own crazy dance once the beat drops.
So Azealia took the track and rapped over it for a remix. Something often done by rappers and singers int he business who want to put their own spin on things. And rarely–especially if they are not selling it–do they need to get permission to do so.
When “Harlem Shake” creator Baauer (no, not the one we’re used to hearing/seeing Diddy do back in the 90’s…this is some new ish..but we were confused to) heard Azealia’s remix, he went off on her via Twitter and had her remix snatched off Soundcloud on Valentine’s Day. But we’re sure if Jay-Z had laid some tracks on that mug he would have been saying “Thank You.”
Azealia took to Twitter to respond to Baauer, who tried to block her remix of his surprise hit “Harlem Shake.” She responded to the Mad Decent artist by calling him a “pussy” and stating that he doesn’t “belong in hip-hop.”
After musician Brillz wrote that they were “too busy making tunes for u to steal tho,” the Harlem native fired back, “you guys are all fagots… May you drown in faggotry.”
And now we’re here. With a video. And we like her version. But she’s on her own with the F bombs. Check it above.
