Outspoken Rapper Azealia Banks Has Waded Into The Feud Between Ghostface Killah And Action Bronson By Urging The Wu-tang Clan Star To Battle His Rival.
Bronson upset the veteran during a recent appearance on ESPN show SportsNation when he criticised the hip-hop superstar's talents, suggesting he's not as good as he used to be.
Bronson has since apologised after Killah threatened his life in an expletive-laden statement, but the Wu-Tang Clan member has refused to accept his rival's remarks - and now Banks, who has also fallen out with Bronson in the past, is baying for a showdown.
Picking up the beef between the two rap heavyweights on Twitter on Tuesday (21Jul15), she wrote, "But remember when Action Bronson had all that mouth to insult me but now that ghostface pulled his card he's mum... F**king fat slob. I want to see him get f**ked up SO badly...

Action Bronson Has Issued An Apology To Fellow Rapper Ghostface Killah After Taking Aim At The Wu-tang Clan Icon's Lyrical Skills During A Recent U.s. Tv Appearance.
The heavyweight Easy Rider star, who has drawn comparisons to Ghostface's style of rapping, criticised the hip-hop veteran during an interview on ESPN's SportsNation show earlier this month (Jul15), after interviewer Max Kellerman admitted he only bought Bronson's latest album, Mr. Wonderful, because he mistook his vocals for those of Ghostface.
Bronson responded, "He’s not rapping like this no more (sic)", adding, "Just being honest".
An angry Ghostface fired back at Bronson in a video message posted online on Monday (20Jul15), when he went as far as to threaten the 31 year old's life.

Wu-tang Clan Star Ghostface Killah Is Helping Aspiring Rappers Make Their Mark On The Hip-hop Scene By Launching An App To Create Homemade Music Videos.
The Ooh Wee hitmaker has teamed up with the Fugees' Pras Michel and rapper/actor Saigon to create Spit 16, which allows artists to film and upload their promos for subscribers to watch and rate.
Ghostface hopes rising stars will use the app to get more creative with their videos after tiring of seeing scantily-clad girls dance around a luxury home or club in so many modern-day clips.
He tells the New York Daily News, "A 'good' video now, I guess, is a banging crib (house), girls with their a**es out and cars. That's what you see. But (to make) a good video, you hardly need any of that s**t...

The singer also performed with rap duo Rae Sremmurd.
Everyone's favourite pop rebel Miley Cyrus made a welcome surprise appearance at SXSW 2015 during Mike WiLL Made It's much-anticipated headline set at the Fader Fort on Thursday (March 19th 2015) alongside the likes of Riff Raff and Future.
Miley Cyrus brought sass to SXSW
Despite recent rumours regarding her personal life, Miley proved to be on top form in her professional life as she brought the house down during her unexpected performance alongside Mike Will Made It - who was scheduled to be mysteriously headlining with 'Friends'.
It's a testament to how far hip-hop has come in recent decades that one of this year's biggest releases sees big-name veteran Ghostface Killa collaborating with Canadian jazz trio, BadBadNotGood. 'Sour Soul' comes as the third link on Ghostface's chain of live-backed albums but BBNG's first full-length recording project with a rap vocalist. The trio appropriate their sound to the film-noir-style of the previous two Ghostface albums; 'Twelve Reasons to Die' and '36 Seasons'.
Despite rumours prior to its release, Ghostface does not feature on every track - three instrumental tracks are included, which offer pretty interludes to the album's dark narrative. Opener 'Mono' builds playfully, xylophone and a climbing bass line drive the song into a rousing teaser of what's to come. 'Starks Reality' and final track 'Experience' demonstrate masterful use of brass and string arrangements, the latter of which is not only one of the album's brightest moments but comes across as strikingly professional and sincere.
Ghostface's stronger points on 'Sour Soul' are mostly in its latter half; centrepiece 'Tone's Rap' sees Ghostface bellyaching as fictional pimp, (- "b***h- the f**k I got lint on my robe/ I can't pimp in these clothes") to results that are both aggressive and comic. 'Mind's Playing Tricks' is an ode to GK's evil villain alter-ego, boasting bad-assery ("Street clientèle I flip, Buy and sell half the chains/ leaving a mark on my neck, That ain't frail.") And on his last two tracks, 'Food' and 'Nuggets of Wisdom', GFK spits life advice at his audience, ("Superficial, don't get sucked into the scene/ The grass ain't always green, the meat ain't always lean"). These moments help to develop the album's thematic concepts as well as offering GFK wider lyrical territory.

Rapper Ghostface Killah put on a surprise show outside an Australian cafe that parodies his name.
The Wu-Tang Clan star heard about a toasted sandwich joint in Perth named Toastface Killah while promoting his solo album 36 Sessions at a local radio station last week (ends21Dec14), and he told the presenters he would visit the business.
He then set up a spontaneous show outside the cafe on Monday (22Dec14).

Wu-Tang Clan will play shows in Manchester and London this summer.
Wu-Tang Clan, one of the most critically acclaimed and successful hip-hop groups of all time, are returning to the UK for live dates to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal record Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers).
The group, originally from Staten-Island, consisted of nine rappers, many of whom forged successful solo careers including RZA, Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Raekwon. The two UK dates will see all living members of the group reunite on-stage together to perform tracks from their back catalogue as well as new album A Better Tomorrow. “This may sound unbelievable,” said RZA upon announcing the shows, “but I told the crew in the first basement meeting that from my calculations, and from what I'm feeling, this will last 20 years.”

With a busy filming schedule still ahead of him RZA may be the new poster boy of alternative Hollywood, but he still hasn't forgotten about his past and according to Ghostface Killah the hip-hop legend is already in the studio working on new material for a potential new Wu-Tang album. Next year marks the 20th anniversary since the hip-hop collective released their seminal breakthrough album, Enter the Wu: 36 Chambers, and if Ghostdeini's word is anything to go by then he has already recorded his RZA-produced parts for an anniversary album.
"While I was doing my Supreme Clientele sh*t, the second one, The Wally Era, I was doing joints for the next Wu album," he revealed whilst speaking to MTV's Rap Fix.
