Azealia Banks, who regularly feuds with Nicki Minaj and Iggy Azalea, has now turned her attention to the UK music scene.

Azealia Banks has claimed that UK rappers are not a “legitimate part of rap culture” during her latest Twitter rant.

The 212 rapper, who was recently feuding with Stefflon Don, has thrown shade at music from artists including Skepta, Stormzy, J Hus, Dave and more.

“The fact that UK rappers think anyone considers them a legitimate part of rap culture makes me giggle,” she tweeted.

Some fans were quick to defend the UK music scene on Twitter.

This isn’t the first time that Azealia Banks has shown her dislike for UK Hip-Hop after previously claiming that “UK rap is just a disgrace to rap culture in general.”

At the time she made the comments in 2016, she was faced with a huge backlash from the UK music scene and also dropped from a London music festival.

Azealia Banks was also banned from Twitter for racist comments made towards former One Direction singer Zayn Malik.

However despite being previously banned, Banks has made a new Twitter profile.

She has also taken shots at her long-running rival Iggy Azalea, after the ‘Fancy’ rapper announced that she had parted ways from her label Island Records.
