Azealia Banks is in yet another Twitter feud, this time with Kendrick Lamar

If there's any celeb who knows how to start a Twitter feud, it's Azealia Banks.

The rapper took to Twitter to absolutely blast Kendrick Lamar for comments he made to Billboard on Ferguson and race in the U.S.

“When we don’t have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us?” Lamar said in his interview with the magazine. “It starts from within. Don't start with just a rally, don't start from looting — it starts from within."

Banks clearly disagreed. She went on an absolute rant on Twitter, posting part of Lamar's quote and calling it "dumbest s*** I've ever heard a black man say." She went on to tweet multiple more times calling Lamar out hard for his views.

But for those of us who follow Banks on Twitter, the fact that she's in a fight with another artist is, honestly, kind of… yawn. She's picked so many fights with so many celebs in the last few years, it's hard to take her seriously anymore or even to pay attention when it happens again. Here are some of Banks's higher-profile feuds from the last few years.

1. Eminem

This one, we actually have to give her credit for. Eminem wrote some new lyrics about punching singer Lana Del Rey in the face, and Banks showed she definitely had her friend's back.

2. T.I.

Banks definitely started this one. After she tweeted that the rapper's wife looked like a "meth face," he fired back, tweeting, a whole lot of NSFW insults and "I WILL END YOU!!!!!"

3. Rita Ora

While they were touring together, Banks started a huge feud with Rita Ora, calling her "thirsty" and "Rihanna's understudy."

4. Lady Gaga

In 2013, Banks accused Lady Gaga of stealing her music. She took the feud to social media, tweeting, "Make sure u let them know where u got the title for red flame from. U stole that from the demo I sent u. This one is free. Next time I'm charging." Banks's tweets have since been deleted.

5. Pharrell

Banks lashed out about Pharrell's song "ATM Jam" in another tweet that's since been deleted. Lucky for us, it lives on in retweets.

6. Lil' Kim

According to BET, Lil' Kim turned down a collab with Banks, sparking this rant.

7. Perez Hilton

In probably her nastiest online feud, Banks incited the wrath of the internet when she called pop culture blogger Perez Hilton a "messy f*****." She later tried to sort of apologize, tweeting, "A f***** is not a homosexual male. A f***** is any male who acts like a female. There's a BIG difference," and, "As a bisexual person I knew what I meant when I used that word...My most sincere apologies to anyone who was indirectly offended by my foul language." Notice she didn't apologize to Hilton.
