Lana Del Rey's latest leaked audio is a Lady Gaga diss track that doesn't pull any punches. There are rumors that this is an old song that was taken when Lana Del Rey was hacked well over a year ago. So far, no official statement has been released.

As if scathing lines like "Have we all gone Gaga crazy?" and "How the fuck is your song in a coke commercial?" aren't personal enough, Del Rey even calls Lady Gaga out by her real name, Stefani (her birth name is Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta).

A fairly simple acoustic guitar vamp sets a somber tone for the song. It would be interesting to hear the song with more fleshed out production and possibly even loud electric guitars & drums. There's some interesting statements about the New York / Brooklyn scene and Punk Rock that beg the question: are these actual stories from when the singers were part of the same NYC scene, or is this just hyperbole?

Full lyrics to Lana Del Rey's Lady Gaga diss track "So Legit":

You were the freak king of the piercing shop
All the girls thought that they could sing
But they're really not
Shit I don't get it
You're looking like a man, you're talking like a baby
How the fuck is your song
In a coke commercial crazy
I don't get it
Your taste once exquisite

What happened to Brooklyn?
What happened to New York?
What happened to my scene?
What happened to punk rock? Rock

You called me the queen
Of the downtown scene babe
How the fuck would you go
Switch it up and then replace me?
I don't get it
I'm so legit

Tell me was it cause I wasn't
Platinum in jewels
That perhaps you thought
I was a little bit even uncool
Kid was that it?

Stefani you suck
I know you're selling 20 million
Wish they could've seen you
When we booed you off in Williamsburg
You're hurt
I know my words don't hurt ya
Oh girl I see you walking round
In your pearls
Thinking that you're number one
You're so funny
'Cuz honey you're not

What happened to Brooklyn
The last frontier
They said you can make it anywhere
If you can make it here
But where no magic in the air

What happened to Brooklyn?
What happened to our scene baby?
Have we all gone Gaga crazy?
Remember when the streets used
To be dangerous and we were born bad
And we were born bad?

Punk rock
Punk rock
The boys used to punch each other in the face
And girls were walking round wasted
Everyone had a good night
Came back when sunlight
Punk rock

Lady Gaga might have the last laugh. She was named the #1 money making celebrity under 30 years old by Forbes magazine, having pulled in $80 million this past year. Lana Del Rey was not on the list.
