RZA slams Azealia Banks
RZA has slammed Azealia Banks as an "obnoxious erratic individual".
The 47-year-old producer admits he was horrified by the way the '212' hitmaker behaved when she accompanied him to a dinner party in Russell Crowe's hotel suite earlier this week, claiming she physically lashed out at a fellow guest, prompting the 'Noah' actor to throw her out of the room.
Despite Azealia's claims Russell had choked her and called her the n-word, RZA insists that isn't the case, though he did confirm to TMZ that he had spat at her.
He also wrote on Facebook: "Before the night is over Azealia is insulting half the room she becomes loud and obnoxious.
"There was nothing funny about her behavior. I felt a little embarrassed because she was my guest.
"Still verbal abuse can be tolerated but when it goes physical...
"Azealia threaten to cut a girl in the face with a glass, then actually grabs a glass and physically attacks for no logical reason.
"Russell blocked the attack and expelled her from the suite.
"Seeing is believing and I saw her behave as an obnoxious erratic individual and in the circles I frequent this was unprecedented.
"I was totally puzzles by her and thought maybe meds or booze or something had her zoned out.
"Nevertheless I made sure she got home safe.
"THIS IS NOT A RACE OR GENDER ISSUE. I did not hear Russell call her a N****r
"I'm not trying to protect Russell from anything he is a man of his own Caliber.
"My art, talent and success speaks for it self and Azealia's recent slander of me and self victimization reflect's the personality of the person that was in that room that night.
I have a wife, daughters, sisters and females on my staff so I protect women everyday. I pray none of them ever behave the way I witnessed Azealia Banks behaved that night.(sic)"
RZA revealed Azealia had turned to him for "economic help" a few weeks ago and he obliged with her request to help her secure a record deal - but was unimpressed when she announced he had signed her up before any paperwork had been made official.
He also posted: "A few weeks ago Azealia hit me up for some economic help and bong I gave a helping hand.
"She then followed up asking me to help her get a record deal.
"I called a friend and bong a record deal was on the table. "The only clause my buddy gave was I be the filter because the word is "she is volatile".
"I called her and told her a deal was in the workings. She immediately, prematurely went to social media and claimed she signed a deal with RZA Yet no deal was signed.
"I didn't respond or comment to her post because I'm not the type to stop the hustle.
"I actually wanted her to win.
"I advised her to stay focus, leave social media and tabloids alone and let your music and art do your talking."
The 25-year-old rapper has branded Russell a "misogynist pig" and claims she feels "mishandled" and "mistreated" following the alleged altercation.
