The Wynwood Pride's first night with her was a complete mess.
According to TMZ, she started ranting about producers controlling her performance timings and doubting if she was the headliner. The rapper brazenly told the crowd, “I’m really not happy to be here.”
“For the last good, like, month and a half, I’ve just been being f—ed with. I’ve been being f—ed around with, you know?” Azealia said in a video clip acquired by PEOPLE.
“Set time’s been move and like, ‘Oh, you’re headlining. No, you’re not headlining. Now you’re not this.”
Although Azealia realized it wasn’t the fans’ fault, she expressed her desire to leave the stage by stating, “I’m so unhappy to be here, but what did the fans ever do? What did you guys ever do, right? I’m trying, y’all. But it’s difficult.”
She tried to vent about the situation again, saying, “I really don’t wanna f***ing be here,” right before her microphone was shut off. The stunt clearly enraged her, as she pulled a perfect mic drop and stormed off the stage.
Azealia further claimed that the dry ice clouds, which she is “EXTREMELY” allergic to, made her feel “lightheaded to the point I could barely stand, despite the fact that her tech rider had requested no dry ice.
“I should have done something at West Palm Beach Pride because somebody tío with the ashy feet and braided sandals def cooked up some Molotov dry ice. I have the biggest headache ever rn. Wow.”

Literally the worst concert experience I’ve ever had. Both Azealia Banks and Wynwood Pride did me so dirty. Expect a request for a refund.— 🦋 (@sailorfetus1) June 11, 2022
