This is going to be hard for Azealia Banks to defend.
On Thursday, RZA took to TMZ to speak out against Banks' claims against Russell Crowe following their altercation at a New York City hotel earlier this week. The mogul's vigorous defense of Crowe comes on the heels of Azealia filing battery charges.

Per RZA's account, the artist was completely "zoned out" the entire evening after consuming excessive amounts of alcohol. The 47-year-old went on to describe A.B.'s erratic, scary, and unprovoked behavior which ultimately forced Russell to kick her out of the party.
It's also important to note that the father vehemently denies Crowe physically attacking Azealia or calling her the N-word. The only thing RZA cops to is that Russell did in fact spit on Banks as he escorted her out of the hotel room.
Not only is the businessman "embarrassed" by the entire incident, but he also decided take back a record deal he had previously offered the 25-year-old. While RZA isn't completely done with the artist, he's definitely taking a step back.
