Since blazing onto the scene with ‘212’, Azealia Banks has become as renown for her outspokenness as she has her music.
Indeed, many would argue that her various social media spats have not only overshadowed her success, but dented it too.
However, today arguably brought an interesting turning point.
Having veered away from the interview circuit in the wake of her numerous beefs, the rapper returned to the media trail today when she stopped by Hot 97.
Never one to hold her tongue, the 23-year-old sounded all the way off on Iggy Azalea, T.I., and Tiny. The New York native also extensively detailed her gripe with industry race politics.
After watching this we’re going to need Ms. Banks to talk more than she types. Because in audio-visual form, a lot of what she saying really resonates. Context, tone, elaboration are key differentials which help colour in many of her points and it really paints her in a new, more positive and enlightened light.
See what we mean below.
