On Valentine’s Day, contentious Harlem rapper Azealia Banks once again found herself in the middle of a Twitter battle, this time due to her interpretation of trap producer Baauer‘s “Harlem Shake.”

Over the last two weeks, Baauer’s 2012 single has encouraged office video interpretations at the rate of 4,000 fan uploads a day, racking up well over 44 million total YouTube views, and inspiring Azealia to release a downloadable freestyle over his beat.

The 23-year-old Brooklyn producer was less than enthusiastic about the unsolicited remix, which Azealia posted yesterday, and had the freestyle removed from her SoundCloud, resulting in a Twitter tirade from the confrontational MC.
