Producer Baauer‘s hit ‘Harlem Shake’ has become a viral sensation within the past few weeks and Azealia Banks has decided to jump on the trend. The Harlem native didn’t make a video but she did remix the popular EDM track.

However, Baauer wasn’t feeling the ‘Liquorice’ rapper’s original version and ordered her to take it down. “[Baauer] why you coccblockin tho??? Lmaoooooo,” Banks tweeted to the producer. “Cause it’s not your song,” Baauer replied back.

Banks later responded crudely, “[Baauer] you’re a p—-. You don’t belong in hip hop.” Well, that wasn’t nice, and, honestly, Baauer is very much appreciated in the hip-hop community.

Nevertheless, you can’t keep a Harlem chick down. Banks resurfaced with a new version — this time the song title is spelled backwards. Pretty slick, we must say.

On the song, Banks spits flirty rhymes over the computer-blipping synths and bass-heavy production. “Keep calling my name / While you’re holding my frame / You know what I’m sayin’ / We can do the spring flang / Chiddy-chiddy, bang bang / This pretty young thang / Realest in the game / Spilling champagne,” she raps.

Currently, Banks is at work on her debut album, ‘Broke With Expensive Taste.’ The LP’s kick-off single, ‘Yung Rapunxel,’ has been delayed until next month.
