Rapologies: When Rappers Say Sorry
Azealia Banks is well known for starting Twitter beefs, but now it seems like she’s ending one. Yesterday, Banks reached out to Kreayshawn via the social networking site to dead a conflict the two landed in earlier this year. “@KREAYSHAWN I apologize for coming down on you so hard earlier this year,” she tweeted. “I missunderstood [sic] that pornhub rt. I can be really defensive sometimes. I’m just naturally rude.” Kreayshawn was all for it, writing back, “It’s all G! I f– with you[r] music above all…You have those fire barz gurlll!” The squabble set off earlier this year when Kreay retweeted a link to Banks’ popular single “212″ that led to a pornographic website. After seeing the tweet, Banks immediately took shots at the “Gucci Gucci” rapper, writing “@KREAYSHAWN you think you’re funny? You’re a dumb b—h. And you can’t rap.” But God forgives, and so does Kreayshawn. However, Azealia Banks isn’t the only MC to say sorry of late. Click on to see other notable rapologies.
Kanye West Apologizes to Taylor Swift
Kanye could really get his own rapology list. When you talk as much smack as he does, it’s inevitable you’re gonna ruffle a few feathers. People acted like Yeezy slapped a baby when he infamously interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs. Even President Obama reportedly called him a “jackass.” Afterwards, West took to his blog with a long-winded (of course) apology. “I’m sooooo sorry to Taylor Swift and her fans and her mom,” he wrote. “I’m in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment… I’m sorry to my fans if I let you guys down!!!! I’m sorry to my friends at MTV… I really feel bad for Taylor and I’m sincerely sorry!!! Much respect!!!!!”
Young Buck Apologizes to 50 Cent
After months of tension over accusations of disloyalty and missed royalty payments, Young Buck was kicked out of G Unit in 2008. A year later, a recorded phone call leaked to the Web, featuring what seemed to be an emotional Buck apologizing to Fif: “I done said things and I’m aware of some of the things that I have said… I’m just trying to make you happy… I don’t want to be dismembered from the crew,” Buck said. “I have gotten out of line with you. I swear to God I have. I’m wrong. A n—a just be confused.”
