Azealia Banks: I hate everything about America
Azealia Banks is “loud and boisterous” but is unapologetic about it.
The rapper was raised in Harlem, New York, but it seems growing up in the United States hasn’t endeared her to the country. In an interview with Playboy magazine, the 23-year-old pulled no punches when it came to explaining exactly what she disliked.
“I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans,” she told the publication. “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.”
Azealia has never been afraid to speak her mind since she made her mark on the music industry with her debut track 212 in 2011. But the singer has no plans to change her ways and is completely unapologetic for the statements she makes.
“Yeah, I am loud and boisterous. And I am black, and I am a pain in your ass,” she said. “I get annoyed with the fact that I’m even asked to explain myself. I get upset when people are like, ‘Why don’t you just make music?’ What would happen if I couldn’t sing? Then I’d just be another black b***h to y’all. It’s really f**king annoying.”
To Azealia, race is a huge issue that she feels the need to speak out about, and she won’t stop until she is heard.
“Black people need reparations for building this country, and we deserve way more f**king credit and respect,” she raged.
