Azealia Banks has taken aim at her latest target: RuPaul.

After publicly feuding with the likes of Cardi B and Stefflon Don in recent weeks, the 212 rapper has now publicly called out the Drag Race host for allegedly ripping off her 2016 track The Big Big Beat with one of his songs.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday (2 June), Banks revealed that shed managed to get RuPauls Call Me Mother – which does credit Banks as being sampled on the track, although she says RuPaul didnt properly license the sample – removed from Spotify.

Check out the two tracks below, starting with The Big Big Beat.

You will not step on my little black girl toes bitch, she wrote to RuPaul.

You will take your razor bumps and pumps to the nearest laser hair removal clinic and seethe. Bye ugly!

Banks complaints have also appeared to have forced the removal of RuPauls album American from Spotify. This is in accordance with Spotifys policy of removing songs or albums which are under investigation.

Where was that energy when you were stealing my work and using me as inspiration for your campy-ass television show? she asked in a tweet, before later adding: [RuPaul] was supposed to have my back.

Lol now that Im filing claims RuPaul wants to reach out. But where was that energy when you were stealing my work and using me as inspiration for your campy ass television show? Im disappointed in him first and foremost as a black person. He was supposed to have my back

But he went with popular white gay sentiment and felt like I was disposable enough to steal from and discard. Fuck him
