Azealia Banks Playboy Interview: Rapper Disses Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell And America! [VIDEO]
In a new Playboy interview, singer-songwriter Azealia Banks spoke no-holds-barred, dissing the likes of Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar, and brazenly stating that she pretty much hates America.
While some might interpret it as the musician shooting her mouth off, other might repsect her attitude of complete honesty. Known for her wearing her heart on her sleeve and speaking her mind, Banks went all out in the April issue of Playboy, which she also graces the cover of.
The 23-year-old rapper was pretty straight-up with her answers and talked a lot about racist oppression, also calling out fellow musicians like Lamar and Pharrell, on their apparent "bullsh**t":
"In American society, the game is to be a nonthreatening black person. That's why you have Pharrell or Kendrick Lamar saying, "How can we expect people to respect us if we don't respect ourselves?" He's playing that nonthreatening black man shit, and that gets all the white soccer moms going, "We love him." Even Kanye West plays a little bit of that game-"Please accept me, white world." Jay Z hasn't played any of those games, and that's what I like."
Banks is pretty angsty through the interview was also quite unforgiving about America, also stating that she would be happy to leave the country.
"Yes! I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma-that's really America.
