I enjoy Azealia Banks fiery passionate attitude and straight forward opinion’s, but there is a definite concern that her matter of fact opinions could stand in the way of her career at some point. Here is an interview I listened to recently on HOT 97 where you can hear Azealia emotionally speak passionately about racism in the music industry.
If you follow Azealia Banks career then you are aware of her strong opinions on racism in America. Below is a interview via Hollywood Reporter with Azealia Banks speaking her truth in a Playboy interview.
Azealia Banks had a bone to pick with critics in a recent interview with Playboy.
The Broke With Expensive Taste rapper, well known for stirring controversy with her outspoken Twitter rants, said about her issue-making behavior: “It’s always about race. Lorde can run her mouth and talk shit about all these other bitches, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner.”
The New York City native targeted Middle America saying, “I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma — that’s really America.”
Though Banks has often been the subject of public scrutiny for her uncensored comments, she told Playboy that she has never felt the need to explain herself. “Why do I have to explain this to y’all?” Banks argued. “My little white fans will be like, ‘Why do you want reparations for work you didn’t do?’ Well, you got handed down your grandfather’s estate and you got to keep your grandmother’s diamonds and pearls and shit.”
