Azealia Banks Bails On Deal With RZA Following Russell Crowe Incident
// Added Oct 20, 2016
Last week, Azealia Banks announced via Facebook, now her primary social media channel, that she would be signing a deal with RZA. "He and I have an excellent work chemistry," she wrote. "Filming coco with him was loads of fun!! Now I get to make music with him!!!Business and Pleasure is imminent."
Unfortunately for the Abbot, the 25-year-old rapper backed out of the deal, set to close this week, after claiming RZA did not defend her during an alleged blowout with Crowe at a party at the Beverly Hills Hotel, TMZ reported. RZA’s camp maintain that it was Banks who used the racial slur in question, while also clarifying that they believe that she was in the wrong over what happened at the party.
Banks claimed Sunday that Crowe called her the "N-word" and spat on her before throwing her out of the room, after she came as a guest of her Wu-Tang rapper pal. She eventually ran into a TMZ pap and told her version of the events.
