Her debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ showcased a way with words, vocals and poetry that places her ahead of most (if not all) her contemporaries…at least on a talent tip.
Alas, it’s the stories Azealia Banks creates for the media and not her music that has seen her pull in the most attention since she touched down on planet Pop four years ago, and for all the wrong reasons.
Today, footage captured her of calling an air steward a f***** saw her stripped of her “verified” status on Twitter and come under fire from critics who blasted her for what they’re calling a homophobic verbal assault.
Now, as she continues to function as an artist outside of the major label system we ask this simple question…
What’s next for Azealia Banks?
Here at TGJ HQ we feel her unique gift will see her follow in the footsteps of Grace Jones and dip in and out of mainstream approval and outlast a number of her unoriginal musicality-deficient rivals.
However, if the reaction to this scandal is anything to go by the rapper will have a long way to go before reaching the heights her talent should have already elevated her to.
Do you agree?
