Wendy is Team Remy
It might surprise you to learn that Wendy Williams has loyalties. The resident sh*t-stirrer of daytime TV apparently rides hard for Remy Ma, and she’s jumped into the Azealia Banks vs. Remy beef to throw a couple barbs in Banks’ direction.
After recapping their Instagram beef, Wendy started out her teardown of Banks with a classic “Who?”
“I’m still trying to figure out who is Azealia Banks,” she said to the crowd.
But Williams wasn’t done, she added that she thinks Banks sells her body for money.
“Banks was also mentioning how she needs vaginal rejuvenation. If you’re wore out at 26 and you’ve got no kids, now we understand how she gets her money,” Williams said. “She works hard for her money.”
And then, the totally not partisan Williams concluded the beef dealt with and declared Remy the winner.
“She’s wack,” she said. “This is a big beef, though. She went real hard at Remy, and Remy is still winning.”
Let’s back up a bit, just so you can understand where all of this is coming from. Remy went on Hot 97 and said that the landscape of women in rap was barren when she was released from prison in 2014.
“When I came home it was nothing,” Remy said. “It was tumbleweeds blowing through as far as female artists in rap is concerned.”
This didn’t sit well with Azealia, who blasted Remy for discounting her music as well as the music of Nicki Minaj.
“The hottest things you’ve released since you’ve been out of jail are Nicki Minaj love letters and she’s STILL miles more important than you,” Banks said in a since-deleted Instagram post. “Your obsession with Nicki Minaj is VERY UNHEALTHY. YOU ARE NOT IMPORTANT TO FEMALE RAP. I’M NOT SURE WHO LIED AND TOLD YOU.”
She also blasted Remy for being better known as a member of the Love & Hip-Hop cast than as a rapper.
“You do not count in the real female rap conversation anymore,” she said. “You are a reality tv star. Now…go check your email for Mona Scott’s day sheet.”

Banks walked it back a bit in a later post but still said that Remy needs to stop pretending that it’s primo New York battle rap time. The genre has moved on and Banks thinks that Remy should move with it. However, she still found the time to call her an auntie and otherwise out of touch.
“Ahem…. let me rephrase … Remy … you absolutely must step your sh*t up. The music you have been releasing is some serious old head rap sh*t and it’s 100% unfair that you stand up on your reality tv booster seat and make any statements about female rap as if you have done a single thing to move the cultural needle since you’ve been home. It is not 2000… battle rapping is dead. Gun clapping is not chic .. you are struggling to keep up with the rest of female rap and it’s time you seriously leave the nicki minaj subs and disses at home. No more auntie antics in 2018… for arts’ sake….
