The controversial rapper took to Instagram on Monday to share the disturbing footage in which she and a unidentified friend dug up the animal named Lucifer.
In the video, which has since been deleted, Azealia could be heard saying; “The cat is in the bag,” after the buried pet was taken from the soil.
The 29-year-old musician shared the video with her 685,000 followers, captioned;
Lucifer 2009-2020. My Dear kitty. Thank you for everything. A legend. An icon. Forever a serval serve.
In the video, she said;
A lot of you guys don’t know, Lucifer the cat died three months ago, and we had to put him in the ground, and we’re digging him up for the very first time. She’s coming back to life.
The 29-year-old then posted a video of herself appearing to boil the animal’s corpse in a large pot, a skull seen floating around as she stirred the thick black concoction with a stick.
The 212 hitmaker then posted a picture of a skeleton with the caption: “She’s ready“, before deleting that too.

No stranger to controversy, Banks has previously hinted at practicing witchcraft.
In December 2016, she posted a series of videos on Instagram as she cleaned her closet of what she claimed was dried blood and feathers from sacrificed chickens, where she had practiced “three years worth of witchcraft“.
All of the videos were swiftly taken down, but not before disturbed followers flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts.
Some fans stated that the rapper needs help and it would be in her best interest to seek help before it is too late.
