Harlem rapper and recently-announced Coachella 2012 performer, Azealia Banks, has been putting it all out there recently. After sending some shots Kreayshawn’s way last week on Twitter, she now has an even more elaborate opinion on Illseed’s Person of the Year, as well as some words about the first lady of YMCMB, Nicki Minaj.
Speaking to The Hundreds magazine for an upcoming cover story that will hit newsstands on February 2, Banks revealed the following when asked about her two fellow, female “MCs”:
On Nicki Minaj:
“The butt, the hair, the this, the that, all the other sh*t, like… As much respect that I have for her, we’ve seen you do this already, what else can you do?”
“As much as Kreayshawn would love to be considered part of this ‘rap game,’ she’s not. I guess a part of me is kind of annoyed that those white girls are making these songs, and it’s like if these girls were black and making the same songs would you be that interested?”
Is this a case of an upcoming rapper trying to get some shine, or do you agree with her stance? What is she trying to accomplish? Well, here are her own words: “I’m trying to be innovative, I want to be like Missy Elliott was, respected and accepted for doing her own thing.”
