Azealia Banks pulled no punches when she got wind of Iggy Azalea's recent quotes for Elle Canada. The Aussie MC reflected on her 2015 social media woes (which included beefing with Banks and Papa John's) and described her personal differences with the Harlem rapper.

"If I could, I would Men in Black memory-erase 2015, I totally would... I think the Azealia Banks thing is what really started it all," Iggy said. "We don’t like each other on a personal level, and that has gone on for many years..."

Banks then fired back on Twitter. "Mentioning me is the only thing that will get you attention. Because ur music and nose job are trash," she wrote. "No one is talking about u so u choose to mention me.... Wrong move hoe."

She then delivered a new electronic yet melodic track titled "Used To Being Alone," the follow-up to her recent dance-y release "The Big Big Beat." Here, Banks belts out the question, "How does it feel to treat me the way you do?" 

The "212" hitmaker also teased her forthcoming project Slay-Z. "K, i got #thebigbigbeat mastered. video on the way," she tweeted. "gonna add a bit more to #USEDTOBEINGALONE spice that bitch up and drop slay-z ASAP."
