Azealia Banks is calling on her fans to "make Azealia great again" following an alleged clash with actor Russell Crowe at a party in his Los Angeles home over the weekend.
"These past few days have been rough," the Harlem rapper wrote in a private Instagram post on Wednesday (Oct. 19). "I want to thank the kuntbrigade so much for being there for me. Although this situation was beyond my control, I promise you all that This is the LAST time I will be in the news for anything negative."
She continued in the lengthy caption, "Somewhere along the way I got sucked into this neverending war with the media that I quite honestly don't have the energy, patience or care to keep fighting. I GIVE UP! And I give in. I love you all tremendously. If you would all please join me in spreading the hashtag #makeazealiagreatagain On all of your AB related posts and comments." She also teased that she would be dropping a "So Ghetto" freestyle today.
