Just because both Jim Jones and Azealia Banks are from Harlem, doesn’t mean that they have to get along…but surprisingly, it was a just a simple slang word that sparked beef between them on twitter.
Jim Jones has been using the term “Vampire Life” and “Vamp Life” to describe his crew, his non-stop nocturnal schedule, his mixtapes, and even his clothing line. Meanwhile, Azealia Banks used the term “Vamp” to describe her girls in a more drag queen lingo way, as in seductress. But on twitter every word can be taken out of context, and every message can be miscommunicated…so Jim thought Azealia was biting, and after saying so much to his followers, she took the bait and bit back. And today, in the latest response, Azealia even dropped a diss song called “Succubi”. Do you think Jimmy will return the favor?
