After a brief Twitter rift over the term “vamp” being used incorrectly, Azealia Banks has decided to release a new Araabmuzik-produced track called “Succubi” as a diss to fellow Harlemite, Jim Jones.
“TruLife stole all your chains (yes), Max B wrote all your flames (yes), Montana rode on your waves (bet), Killa called you a lame…” Banks raps on the new song.
Jim Jones has been creating a movement he calls “vampin” which is a reference to people who are up at night making money while others are asleep. Azealia refers to herself as a “vamp” or a dark and attractive femme fatale. Somehow the definitions crossed and drama began.
It all seemed like a misunderstanding. I didn’t think it was this deep, but I understand the promotional benefits in recording a diss record. In case you’re wondering, “succubi” is a pluralized form of the word “succubus,” which is a demon that takes the form of a human woman and seduces men in their dreams.
