New rapper Azealia Banks claims she is "not tight" with Kanye West despite previously hinting she might work with him
Azealia Banks is "not tight" with Kanye West.
The '212' hitmaker has previously hinted she was working with the esteemed musician on her debut album, but claims their relationship is more casual than professional.
She said: "We're not tight. We're kind of just like, 'Yo, what's up? How you doing?' I see him around a lot, like at the Met Ball and all that stuff. When I speak to him, he'll just be like, 'Yo what you up to? Want to come to Paris? Want to come to a show?' Sure!"
She also admits a recent tweet she posted hinting she had received some "beats" from Kanye was not entirely truthful.
She added to MTV News: "That was actually a hoax. I actually didn't get a beat from Kanye West. I was actually very gassed and tweeted it. He sent me some links for stuff he thought I should sample and the email title just said 'Beats' and I was like, 'I just got beats from Kanye West!' Then the email said, 'Hey, I think you should sample these,' and I was like, 'Come on, f**king Kanye, give me a goddamn beat! Let me get a beat!' "
