Azealia Banks has attempted to clear the air following her wild Twitter rant yesterday (11th May).
The ‘212’ rapper made headlines after she called Grime and UK Rap a “disgrace” and also made a series of vile racist and homophobic slurs to a number of people including Zayn Malik and MNEK.
During her lengthy rant, Banks also took aim at 14-year-old Disney star Skai Jackson, with a series of vicious tweets.
However following yesterday’s fiery outburst, she has issued an official statement, which doesn’t include an apology.
Check out the full statement below:

But obviously I'm insanely fucking talented and have already lowered myself to the levels of ppl who don't even deserve to share the same— BRUJA DEL BLOQUE (@AZEALIABANKS) May 11, 2016
The rapper has unsurprisingly deleted all of her controversial tweets from yesterday – however she was shut down by members of the Grime and UK Rap community who took offense at her comments.
