Azealia Banks Covers Vibe : Explains Her E-Thugging Nature, Says Lil’ Kim Has A Black Cloud Over Her And More
Azealia Banks is just keeping shit real crazy and laughing in the process as she goes through her journey of kunt fame. Who could blame Azealia Banks though honestly because she brings something to the table that gays and queens have been waiting on forever. The spicy decorated kunt rapper sat down with Vibe for a one on one interview divulging every last detail of what she has went through these past months for her hot cover with Diplo. Azealia Banks kunted her way through the interview dismissing Lil’ Kim and explaining that she never said Iggy Azalea couldn’t rap. One thing is for sure, even though Azealia Banks might kunt a lot she still has more balls than some of the dudes in the game.
On dissing Lil’ Kim : “That’s what we did, and that shit is over. Yo, listen, [Lil’ Kim], this black cloud you got over you—don’t try to push that over me. You can keep that, because as soon as I released “Jumanji” is as soon everybody forgot about you. I have my hand on the dial; I can control how hot and cold you are right now. So I’m not even going to give it to you. I tried to make a legitimate track with you, tried to collaborate. I was bigging her up and she keeps throwing it back in my face. I tried.”
On how controversy has helped her career so far and Iggy Azalea : “Of course, because Americans are distracted by shit like that. It’s like, “Listen, T.I., if I was a fucking boy you wouldn’t say anything to me.” But when I’m a girl and I say something back, the media wants to turn it into all these different things. Rappers beef all the time. I said what I said about [Iggy Azalea] and kept it moving. Then a month later you said what you said. And it keeps coming up. Leave it alone. I didn’t say she couldn’t rap. I said something very real. Out of everything, she had to [call herself] “a runaway slave master”? C’mon, that’s not swag. That’s not fly shit.”
On being pop like Nicki Minaj : “Not at all. The hip-hop world is used to a certain lifestyle that Nicki Minaj and me are trying to escape from. It’s weird because they like you when they can still see you, but once you try to ascend, it’s like, “What. The. Fuck?” Because they can’t reach you anymore, and they’re not rising with you. They miss that comfort and it takes a while to get used to it, but eventually they’ll understand. That’s the power of art. Art pushes culture and forward thinking. Right now, if you listen to Nicki, she’s really making good pop music and is definitely up there with Gaga and Katy—exactly where she wants to be. But the hip-hop world maybe didn’t know that’s where she wanted to be [laughs].”
On going crazy and disrespecting artists on twitter : “Of course, because it’s e-thugging… Who wants to look like that? But how else am I gonna reach y’all? I don’t have a T.I. to get on a radio show and defend me; I’m the one behind me. Y’all expect me to agree like, “Oh yea, I’m wack. I only have one song.” That’s one song y’all niggas don’t fucking have. You might win some, but you just lost one.”
