New York rapper Azealia Banks, 21, has taken to Twitter to wage another war, this time against English aging rockers The Stone Roses, 149. According to Banks:
My ex tour manager made a pact with the stone roses saying they’d sabotage my set because I fired him..

Both acts were performing at the Future Music Festival in Australia. In a series of now deleted tweets Banks went on to say:
So what we can take from the story so far is that Banks was performing at the festival, and the recently reformed Roses began warming up in an area behind here. Whether this is intentional or not remains to be seen.
On Wednesday, Banks seemed enthusiastic about playing with The Stone Roses:
What’s you guys’ favorite Stone Roses song??? I need advice on where to start listening !!

Banks fired her tour manager on Wednesday after she believes him to have stolen $1200 from her.
This isn’t the first time that the Harlem-born rapper has caused controversy on Twitter, in January she called celebrity blogger Perez Hilton as “Messy F*ggot.”
The Stone Roses reformed in 2011 after 15 years broken up, here’s a GIF of them being interviewed in their hairy hey-day.
