Look back on the past three years of Azealia Banks' career and there's little the outspoken Harlem rapper has kept to herself. But, it turns out, there's at least one thing she's been keeping in her closet: chickens. 

Banks posted an Instagram story on Thursday showing her cleaning up what looks to be the mess that comes with keeping (and possibly sacrificing) chickens in your closet for magical purposes. Donning a face mask and equipped with a power sander, the rapper got to work removing a heavy coat of feathers and more. 

"The amount of crap that’s about to come off my floor right now, guys, oh my god,” she says in the video. "Three years’ worth of brujería. Yes, you know, I gotta scrape all this shit up.” Subsequent clips show Banks wearing safety goggles and using a power sander to clean what appears to be feathers and gunk off the floorboards.

Brujería is the Spanish-language word for witchcraft. 

"Real witches do real things," she says before turning on the sander. 

Though Instagram stories erase after 24 hours, you can watch Banks' clips here via a captured version:
