Just when you thought 2016 or Azealia Banks couldn’t get any stranger, the rapper hits you with some good old fashioned witchcraft chicken sacrifices. And no, I’m not making this up. This is a real thing that really happened.
Banks caught social media waayy off guard with her latest revelation. The rapper’s Friday (Dec. 30) Instagram story showed her cleaning out her blood-stained closest where she apparently has been practicing “brujeria.” Or the Spanish word for witchcraft.
“The amount of crap that’s about to come off my floor right now guys – oh my God. Three years worth of brujería. Yes, you know I gotta scrape all this sh*t up. I got my sandblaster, my goggles. It’s about to go down. Real witches do real things.”

Someone clearly didn’t tell her American Horror Story: Coven aired in 2013 (three years ago, I may point out) and she is not the Supreme!
It’s unknown what animal she was actually sacrificing, but given the feathers, many have suggested the Harlem rapper has been slaughtering chickens in her closet for three years… and not cleaning up the mess. I don’t know much about brujeria or animal sacrifices, but wouldn’t that leave a smell that most sane people couldn’t bear?
Banks’ disturbing Instagram Story has since been deleted from her account. However, Twitter definitely had a lot to say.

*Honestly, the Church of Satan’s tweet took me out!*
Sacrificing animals for your gain is the wackest shit I've ever heard. Get ahead by being awesome, kind and working hard.

I feel if you're still an azealia banks fan at this point you're more crazy than she is

2016 has been quite interesting for Banks. The rapper found herself shrouded in controversy for racist comments about singer Zayn Malik, a Twitter war with Sarah Palin, bleaching her skin, and getting into a physical altercation with Russell Crowe at his private Beverly Hills dinner party.
I still don’t understand why Banks can’t just focus on rapping and call it day. She just has to go do/say something crazy for people to pay attention to her. I can only imagine what she has in store for 2017.
