Azealia Banks has more than earned her title as the Twitter Battle Chief over the years. The 24 year-old Harlem-breed emcee took on T.I. and Iggy Azalea  and called out “fat White America”. Backing down and playing politically correct just ain’t her thing.

But lately Banks’ statements have become less subversive and rebellious and more confusing and well, just sloppy. Her Twitter thumb tells the tale of an insecure and reckless young artist.

To put it plainly, we’re concerned about Azealia Banks.

What is she dealing with? Who pissed her off, exactly? And the more urgent question: where are her girls?

Until we can get down to those answers, and we will, here’s an overview of her latest mad, twisted and genius social media banter.

The Latest: Azealia Banks v. Nicki Minaj & Miley Cyrus

Just last month Banks criticized Madam Tussauds for their negative portrayal of Nicki Minaj, so it’s rather odd she would turn around and include Nicki in her post-VMAs Twitter blast. Shots at Miley Cyrus were to be expected, but to group Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, and Taylor Swift’s music together under the title: “basic ass music”, confused us deeply.

The Dumbest Move Ever: Azealia Banks v. Queen Bey & The BeyHive

Banks doesn’t believe in wisely choosing her battles. Taking on Beyonce and the Beyhive may not be her smartest move. Not only did she come for Bey, but she came for her on the light skin versus dark skin tip, implying Bey didn’t work with her because she doesn’t bleach her skin.

 The Blankest Stare: Azealia Banks v. Skin Bleaching 

Hours after claiming Beyonce doesn’t associate with her because of her lack of skin bleaching, Banks tweeted she has no issues with skin bleaching and thinks Black women should be allowed to do it without it being considered self-hate.

We really want Azealia Banks to win. She’s arguably one of the most thoughtful and wildly brilliant rap artists since Lauryn Hill.

We’re all about a subversive, middle-finger toting Black fly girl, but when your shots are aimless and sloppy? Nah, homie.

Azealia, sis, what’s really good?
