Azealia Banks: 'Me And Kanye Are Same Person'
Opinionated rapper says she and Yeezy are leading the pack in hip-hop...
The 212 rapper praised Yeezy in an interview with Elle magazine, and claimed that she and him were leading the field in hip-hop.
"Kanye is a genius. Kanye and I are like the same person but boy and girl. We're pulling from the same cloud, the same inspiration. We're both Geminis, we're the two premier avant gardists in hip hop music.
"It's just me and him. I think our consciousnesses are swirling around each other in some weird kind of way."
Azealia and Kanye have previously worked together - and she has also collaborated with Lady Gaga, although that work looks unlikely to get a release after they apparently fell out.
Speaking about remembering the lyrics to her quickfire electro-rap hit 212, she commented: "It's muscle memory, when you've done something over and over and over.
"When I'm writing stuff that's really fast, I'll speed the beat down to maybe 4 or 5 BPM, rap it at a different pace then speed it up."
