Azealia Banks is speaking out.
For, the ‘212’ rapper took to Instagram after the death of DMX to discuss an issue that pertained to the late rapper, who she claimed was “crying out for help.”
Full story below…
She claimed that the music industry attempts to sabotage an artist by profiting as much as possible without considering their well-being.
“You have somebody like DMX, who, for so long, was crying out for help, crying out for f***ing help. Letting people know that he needed help, legitimate help.”
Banks then drew similarities between her and DMX.
“There have been a lot of times in my career where I’ve had fans, like ‘Azealia, go get help,’ ‘Go to the therapist.’ But guess what, I couldn’t afford to go see a f***ing therapist because I had business managers, lawyers, managers, record labels, everybody stealing my f***ing money. Weaving this f***ing web that is impossible to f***ing penetrate.”
However, she went on to add that looking out for an artist begins with providing them with quality health insurance.
“I’m saying this to record labels, if you guys are going to sign people into these lifelong contracts where they are offering up their f***ing intellectual property, health insurance, and the top health insurance has to be a no-motherf***ing-brainer. The health insurance coverage needs to last for the artist’s entire lifetime.”
