Azealia Banks knows how to get her name in the headlines...

This time, the 24-year-old rapper's Twitter rant takes aim at Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift and she even takes an indirect dig at Beyoncé!

Most of Azealia's grief seems to have stemmed from the Miley, Nicki and Taylor feuds addressed Sunday at the 2015 MTV VMAs. (ICYMI, Nicki settled her beef with Taylor but escalated her issues with Miley by calling her out on comments she made in a recent New York Times interview.) Azealia was across the pond headlining at Reading 2015 when all this was going on, but by Wednesday morning she was all caught up on what went down at the Microsoft Theater in L.A.

Naturally, Azealia took to Twitter to express her frustrations.

"It's so funny to wake up and see nicki and Miley or nicki and taylor fighting when you ALL make basic ass music," she wrote. "ITS A CONTEST OF THE BASICS...BASIC BASIC BASIC"

She wrote that as host of the VMAs, "Miley HAS to know her s--t is whack as f--k," adding, "It has to be a joke... Isn't she making fun of herself? Yes? No?...Either way the s--t is trizzy as f--k and sucking up too much air."

As for Nicki? Well, some fans pointed out to Azealia that she's actually praised her fellow rapper's music in the past. In response, she acknowledged what while she might like a "hot track" or two from the "Shanghai" artist, her own "s--t is still better."

"No shade, It just is," Azealia tweeted. "Just because I really enjoy someone's music doesn't mean that I don't enjoy mine more LOL."

She acknowledged Nicki is "great. Incredible even," but noted, "I'm just..... better."

In response to this, a fan wanted to know, "then why did Beyoncé get rid of your remix and let Nicki remix her songs???" (Azealia, along with Busta Rhymes, was featured in Queen Bey's "Partition" remix. When the Grammy winner remixed "Flawless," however, she teamed up with Nicki.)

"because," Azealia responded, "I haven't been eating my skin bleaching tablets !!!!"

Yikes. Azealia continued to tweet on the topic of race, claiming Nicki "be trying her hardest to be on the same level with these white don't u get that these white girls are trying their hardest to be you? Why are u tryna be them? Idgi"

"I know she [Nicki] knows she's better than them and IT MAKES ME SO MAD," Azealia went on "...cause it sets a standard for basicness that other black girls follow!! not cool !!!"

As of Wednesday afternoon, Nicki had yet to acknowledge Azealia's comments on Twitter. Miley, Taylor and Beyoncé are staying mum for the time being as well.
