Azealia Banks announced on Monday (Feb. 22) that she was engaged to Ryder Ripps, and she shared the news in a way you’d expect Azealia Banks to share it. “I just got engaged, k-nts,” she captioned the Instagram photo of her engagement ring. Instead of a massive diamond or some other glittery jewel, the 29-year-old rapper wore a golden ring bearing a menorah. Apparently, the engagement announcement also doubled as Azealia announcing her conversion to Judaism. “I’m Jewish now. MAZEL TOV BITCHES! WE IN HERE…. YERRRRRRR.”
She also shared scenes from the proposal – with Ryder down on one knee – to her Instagram Story. “My bb,” commented Ryder on the post. He also shared a picture of her hand, with the engagement ring, to his account. Their friends and fans celebrated the news. “Congrats,” commented streetwear designer Guillermo Andrade. “Congratulations [heart emoji x 3],” added Sky Ferreira. Solomon Ray, Paperboy Prince, Kilumantii, and others all filled the comments section with love and heart emojis. “Can’t wait to see the freakum dress at the wedding,” wrote one fan. “congratulations boo!!!” added another.
