Azealia Banks

Controversial spoken word artist Azealia Banks is good for something: breaking up fistfights.

A brawl broke out in the audience as Banks performed at Manhattan's Irving Plaza in New York City on Monday.

As the drunken combatants threw 'bows, Banks stopped the music and scolded them for interrupting her lip syncing to songs no one knows the words to.

If you recall, this is the same spot where clumsy rapper August Alsina fell off the stage and bumped his head last September.

From Gossip Cop:

In the middle of performing her song “Miss Amor,” Banks saw several people fighting in the crowd and immediately stopped the show to bring attention to it. “Whoa, whoa, whoa! We’re not gonna fight in the crowd!” Banks exclaimed. “That’s not what we’re going to do. You’re going to have to stop right now or you’re going to get kicked out. Y’all gotta figure it the f*ck out or all y’all are getting kicked the f*ck out, heard what I said?”

The rapper continued, “Ain’t don’t matter who hit who, you gotta stop f*cking touching each other right now. I’m looking at all five of y’all right now, I’ll throw all of you out right now, stop hitting!” After security dealt with the situation, Banks got the show back on track, launching back into “Miss Amor” without missing a beat.

“I’m gonna count to 10 and I’m gonna keep this show going!” said the performer. Check out the video of Azealia Banks stopping the fight below. What do you think of the incident and how she handled it?

    @Nancy from downstairs

    When my boss tried to tell me about my hair being nappy (against dress code) :eyeroll: when I wore it natural

    Lilmissy deddy tried it with that chit. Talmbout lilmissy wearing her hair natural is lazy. Nignog quit yes been fawking white bishes too long. Forgot yew black sucka. Natural hair takes way more time than slapping a relaxer in there... He got a FOH :mad: that day TUH. I'm getting mad just remembering it. Not gonna have my chile hating her hair... Bleaching her skin and chit cause her own black daddy and her sedidity azz granny ain't teaching her black is brutiful

    I'm more surprised that people actually paid to see her. :huh:

    :thinks: Maybe they won tickets and her performance was the catalyst for the fight. :shrug:

  • Unshakable

    @MissyJ,

    And one more thing....Black hair grows upward and outward, not straight down. Why should Blacks apologize for that? :think:

    Blanche: you better try your luck and report that bytch. For all we know she prolly fukkin her cousin at home :tea: trash ass sprite :no:

  • sassyshe

    @Missy I commend you for allowing your child to appreciate her hair, kids shouldn't have to go through life wanting to change things about themselves because it doesn't meet some person's standard of beauty. I remember growing up I couldn't wait for a relaxer because even though I have curly hair I didn't have the silken curls like some members of my family and friends used to tease me saying I had naps in comparison to my sibling and relatives. Over the years my hair texture has changed and I have very cute curls but all those years of scalp burns I could have lived without

    I used to work with a girl who moved here (Virginia) from Indiana... I thought WE had some whistlin' Dixie niggras here, but this girl was on some 'new' niggra mess, we aint never seen b4. she was enamored w/them yt womenz in the office, and they wouldn't p*ss on her if'n she was on fire :no: when 'we' tried to tell her to watch her back, she'd be all bright eyed and disbelieving talmbout 'you guys are soooo mean :) '
    we finally stopped tryna 'open her eyes' ...well they eventually made it plain, even to her, that they hated her (too). THEN she wanna be 'down' wit us common folk. FOH girl :yawn:

    I saw a video of some dude kept running up on another dude in Vegas. Dude kept trying to walk away from the guy, but he kept following him and antagonizing him. Dude hit him and the guy falls. Not one to leave well enough alone, the guy gets up and follows dude for another minute or 2. Dude finally had enough and hit him with a 2 piece fried extra crispy. A sprite lady was like, "OMG! What did he do? Someone call an ambulance." He had it coming to him :lol:

    @Nancy, girl. That's the exact type of nigra(s) I'm talking about -- Indy was full of 'em! I was working a temp job once. One of 'em found out I used to work downtown. She actually said, "Oh. I don't even GO down there! THEY won't hire me." Like downtown was some foreign land with streets paved with gold. Them nigras were some of the most base-board studying assed negroes I'd ever met. (didn't make eye contact with people, just walked around looking down all the damned time) Ugh!

    This is one of the issues I have with Honey Dip. He always talks about wanting to take Lil Butter and I to London (we canceled our trip last Oct due to the Ebola thing) and wanting to someday own a flat there. As soon as I say I want to go to Nigeria, South Africa, Morocco- heck, anywhere on the continent- he always says I should go and he's not interested in visiting. That coupled with his family saying they were shocked he brought home a black girl....Makes we wonder if his black pride is strong enough.

Don't create a whole new category (one of an "exception to the rule") for me so that you can curl up next to your preconceived notions at night, bitch! Before you worked with me, if you just saw me on the street, I'd be just as scray as all other black people. That shit was supposed to flatter me? Wrong one, bitch! Wrong one.

She knew not to fukk with me. I'd humble her fridge shaped ass so damn quick. Knew damn well her ppl was being dropped back off in Messico like food supplies from a plane :tea:

    I tell you what, this girl does darn good for a pretty much unknown artist. I assume she ain't getting rich, but she is living off of her music and blogs stay talking about her. I'm actually impressed even if I can't name one song of hers.

    :stop: right Gatdamn there. Honey Dip a negro? If so he bets shut that mouf of his and visit the land of his people!! Now don't get me wrong the Ebola shyt had me scared at one point but that shyt was all propoganda!!! London is cool, don't get me wrong I want to visit but over there ain't what its cracked up to be for real. They discriminate WORSE in the UK than the US. That shyt is super apparent.

    You gotta lock Honey Dip in a room and play Nollywood movies all day. :rofl:

    Indy: I had to wear a black woman down (she worked in housekeeping in my building) and it took three months of me saying "good morning" to her before she began to speak. It was like since I was taking the elevator "up" and she was cleaning the lobby, EYE thought EYE was better than her and so she didn't even BOTHER to speak even though I would speak EVERYDAY!!!! It became a social experiment for me: how long will it take her to see that we're more alike than we are different? Exhausting itellya!

    =========
    :yes: Just as sure as water is wet. The funny thing about it is that African people will engage in conversation with him and ask how long he's been here and what part of the motherland he's from :lol: He doesn't look diluted like some of us.

    I thought I was going to just have to beat him with a sock full of nickels until I break him. Maybe Nollywood films is a more humane approach.

    Butter :think: did you describe Honey Dip as a deep chocolate :heart: color? if so, (not make excuses for him :tea: ) do you think that because of his color/hue he may have had some unpleasant childhood experiences that make him 'shy away' from -->my words--> "too much of a BLACK thing" i.e., The Motherland, bringing home a black girl, etc?
