Beefs aren't exactly rare in the rap industry (Biggie vs. Tupac, anyone?), but the sheer volume of feuds that "212" rapper Azealia Banks is currently involved in is unfathomable.

In the past week alone she blasted tour mate The Stone Roses as "old saggy white n----s," labeled Rita Ora "Rihannas understudy" and continued her never-ending Twitter battle with Baauer over "Harlem Shake."

At this point, it's like some sort of elaborate performance art.

Oh yeah, and somewhere in there she released a new song (for the record, it was late last night after canceling her set at Future Music Fest).

(This track contains explicit language. So, like, if you're at work, put on headphones.)

The first single—off her upcoming album Broke With Expensive Taste—takes its name from one of Banks many monikers and is described as the twisted sister of sorts to her breakout hit "212." It's a blend of rap and screamo, which, for the record, we're totally into.

"#YUNGRAPUNXEL IS A MAD SCIENTIST," Banks tweeted after debuting the track.

And then in true Azealia form, she continued, "These smaller girls are worried about me not topping '212' when they'll never even HAVE a song as important as '212.' 

So basically, even if you don't like the track, Azealia does. And that's all that matters to her.
