The Daily Word: RZA Opens Up About The Bizarre Incident That Took Place Between Azealia Banks and Russell Crowe

The RZA has finally broken his silence about the bizarre incident we reported on involving controversial rapper Azealia Banks and famed actor Russell Crowe. It’s not looking too good for Azealia once again who claimed she had receipts about what happened that night. RZA opens up about the night after Banks says she felt RZA “betrayed her” by not sticking up for her that night and doesn’t want to be associated with him “personally and professionally”.


To bring you up to speed if you don’t know exactly what happened, Azealia accused Russell Crowe of assaulting her by spitting on her and calling her the n-word. This all happened at a private dinner party Russell held at his Beverly Hills hotel suite. Multiple witnesses including the RZA backed Crowe insisting that Azealia was the one acting “erratic” and was the one slinging the n-word around before Crowe deposited her outside of his suite.

Today we get even more details from that night as the RZA opened up to his fans about the night and his dealings with the troubled rapper. In the lengthy Facebook post RZA talks about trying to help Azealia get back on her feet. He details the many times he has come to Azealia’s aid landing her a role in his new film Coco, securing her a record deal and even helping her out financially.

Azealia was brought to my attention while I was casting my next Film Coco. I heard the rumors of her problems in the industry but disregarded them with the rationality everyone is innocent until proven guilty. So my producer and I fought for her to be in the film and we succeeded. During the filming process things ran smooth and she delivered. Thus my only experience with her had been professional. The only brief social moment was at the wrap party. Therefore “I HAD NO REAL EXPERIENCE OF HER SOCIAL BEHAVIOR…”

A few weeks ago Azealia hit me up for some economic help and bong I gave a helping hand.
She then followed up asking me to help her get a record deal.
I called a friend and bong a record deal was on the table. The only clause my buddy gave was I be the filter because the word is “she is volatile”.
I called her and told her a deal was in the workings. She immediately, prematurely went to social media and claimed she signed a deal with RZA Yet no deal was signed.

He then follows that up with the full details of what happened that night in Crowe’s hotel suite pretty much corroborating with the other witnesses that night.

Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious.
There was nothing funny about her behavior. I felt a little embarrassed because she was my guest.
Still verbal abuse can be tolerated but when it goes physical…
Azealia threaten to cut a girl in the face with a glass, then actually grabs a glass and physically attacks for no logical reason.

The Daily Word: Azealia Banks Accuses Actor Russell Crowe of Assaulting Her!


The Daily Word: Azealia Banks Accuses Actor Russell Crowe of Assaulting Her!

Azealia Banks is being spoken about and no surprise it has nothing to do with her music.


The “ATM Jam” rapper who can no longer harass us on Twitter took to her new favorite social medium Facebook to address her fans about an alleged incident. The very weird incident in question took place between Banks and famed actor Russell Crowe. Banks posted on her Facebook page (now deleted) about the alleged incident where she claims that Crowe “choked her, called her the n word and spat on her”.


TMZ exclusively reports that Banks lied about the incident according to numerous witnesses. The incident took place Saturday night in Crowe’s room at a Beverly Hills hotel. Crowe invited over 10 people to have dinner and listen to music, one of those guests was the RZA.

If you have been one of the many people still keeping up with Azealia Banks she let the world know that she was signing with RZA to his record label. Which now brings us back to the bizarre incident, Banks was RZA’s plus one at the dinner so that explains why she was there in the first place.

Here’s where it gets interesting, according to multiple eyewitnesses things began to get out of control when Banks “laughed out loud” at Russell’s taste in music and then called him and another guest “boring white men”. Sounds like something she would allegedly do.


Wait there’s more! A source tells TMZ that one of the female guest jumped to Russell’s defense and told Banks to “pipe down”. Of course Banks didn’t heed those words and took it to another level.


Banks then says “You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino s***.”  and also dropped some n-bombs.


Crowe was reportedly still calm till Banks attempted to throw a glass and that was the final straw. Crowe picks up Banks, puts her in a bear hug and carries her out of the suite.


According to TMZ at least 4 witnesses confirm that version of the story happened and described her behavior as “erratic”. Even the RZA stated that his artist was the one that used the n-word not Crowe.


Banks hasn’t said much about the situation but she did tell her Facebook followers that she has receipts with her last post.


These better be some damaging receipts Azealia cause right now it looks like she’s about to take another L. We will keep you updated if Azealia ever drops these so-called receipts.

Azealia Banks Struts Around The City In “The Big Big Beat”

Azealia Banks has taken a break, though brief from sparking controversy on social media to release the video for her dance hit “Big Big Beat.” Off of her Slay-Z mixtape released back in March, Banks takes things to the NYC streets as she struts and sashays down a project hallway, dances on top of a cop car, and in front of a court house. The 212 sports her signature long black locks while rocking three fierce and distinct outfits. Banks bubbly and silly personality can be seen throughout. If only she would let that shine through on social media.

Watch Azealia Banks dope visual for “The Big Big Beat” below. We’re sure this track is guaranteed to be one of this Summer’s anthems.

The Word: Azealia Banks Is Stumping For Trump!

Azealia Banks DIsses MTV

You can now add Azealia Banks to the surpising list of black people who are willing to take a chance on voting for Donald Trump and his insanity.

Azealia Banks is voting for Donald Trump

On the official first day of Black History Month 2016, Banks announced to her Twitter followers that she has decided to support Donald Trump.  As expected she caught a lot of flack for her decision, but the “ATM Jam” rapper stuck to her guns and defended her position.

Banks explanation for decision to support Trump:

In conclusion, I think Donald Trump is evil like America is evil and in order for America to keep up with itself it needs him.


Banks also gave her opinion Trump’s Democratic competition:

The other candidates are simply, them hoes over there’ #thots.


Oh wait Banks had more to say on the country she currently lives in:

I only trust this country to be what is full of shit. Takes shit to know shit so we may as well, put a piece of shit in the White House.

This is literally one of the most backhanded endorsements of a candidate we have ever seen. But we are sure Trump welcomes the support regardless if he is being referred to as feces.


Here are all of Banks tweets about her endorsement for Trump below:

Now we here, at Stuff Fly People Like are all for folks exercising their God given right to vote for whomever they feel best represents their interest at heart. We just gotta call a spade a spade when folks start voting against their interest. Also choosing to rock out for a guy who wants to build an imaginary wall to keep out invading “illegal immigrants is just bananas.

We also find it funny that Banks feels this country is so horrible, if that’s the case she’s more than welcomed to leave. America is far from a perfect country, but compared to a lot of places it’s not the worst place to be. Banks also needs to realize if the country is broken as she claims supporting someone who could care less about fixing it isn’t going to help matters. It’s beyond counterproductive and it’s just doesn’t make any damn sense!tumblr_inline_nr14mjdgPZ1tri7aw_500

We also find it quite hilarious that in the same breath Azealia is championing for blacks receiving reparations for slavery.

So Azealia, you think if you vote in Donald Trump he’s going to make sure that happens for blacks?


All signs of course point to an emphatic NO!  But  you want to help Donald “make America great again”. Seriously Azealia we can’t rock with you on this one here.
