If anyone has the right to be mad at Azealia Banks right now, it’s the RZA. Apparently Banks was RZA’s guest when she got into it with Russell Crowe at an intimate party in his suite at the Beverly Hills Hotel this past weekend.
After Banks accused Crowe of spitting on her, choking her and calling her the n-word before throwing him out of the room, RZA gave his side of the story, and it’s not looking good for Banks. RZA sounds like a frustrated elder who tried to invest in Banks’ future, but got burned. From the picture he paints, Banks self-destructed despite his attempts to give her everything she said she needed, including a record deal.
“There was nothing funny about her behavior. I felt a little embarrassed because she was my guest,” the Hip-Hop icon wrote. Adding, “Seeing is believing and I saw her behave as an obnoxious erratic individual and in the circles I frequent this was unprecedented.”
