Another day, another way for Azealia Banks to confound us on social media. After quitting Twitter, the "212" rapper has committed to posting nasty messages in Instagram captions; her old nemesis Iggy Azalea is her latest target, and Banks is encouraging the "Fancy" star to commit suicide.

Last week, Azalea admitted in an interview that she sometimes considered suicide last year, when she was dealing with an abnormal amount of Internet haters. “Sometimes I did," she said. "Sometimes I would drive through the canyons to get to my horses and I’d be like, ‘What if I just kept driving off the canyon?’ Sometimes I would feel like that.”

Banks wrote, referencing Iggy's line about being "a runaway slave/master" on the 2011 song "D.R.U.G.S."

That's a pretty horrible thing to say! Fortunately, Azalea—who released her new single "Team" on Friday (March 18) is taking Azealia's latest criticism in stride:
