Hot Topic: What’s Next For Azealia Banks?

Published: Tuesday 22nd Sep 2015 by David

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?

Weigh in below!

    Y’all are doing the “What’s Next For…” for the wrong people.
    How about what’s next for Rita Ora, Ciara, and Elijah Blake?

    Despite her having no common sense the girl is talented and HAD an “it” factor. But just like Iggy she is constantly destroying her image outside of music. And sadly today’s music industry is literally all about image. Tbh I only see maybe 2 female rappers to reach successful heights in the next 20 years, but there will never be anyone as big as Nicki, Missy, and Kim.

    To figure out what’s ‘NEXT’ shouldn’t she have had to do something relevant in the first place?

    she a waste of talent… i hate her now she known for her crazy outlandish outburst more than her music which is sad.

    she needs some serious help.

    What’s next? Her only remaining fans were white gays and now that this video is out, they’ll ditch her effectively. A mess. She was finally starting to get a bit of traction back after ending Iggy’s career/Broke With Expensive Taste finally being released. She deserves it though.
