Azealia Banks: ‘I Haven’T Stopped Rapping’
Azealia Banks has clearly been on somewhat of an emotional rollercoaster this week. The rapper became sick of critics, deleting her Twitter account after writing: "From now on I'm a vocalist, and will not be associating myself with the 'rap game'... or whatever the f**k that means." However, the ‘212’ artist came back to the social networking site shortly after…
Azealia also took to her blog to hit back at the media who had said that the artist was ‘giving up the rap game’, saying: "Don't let the stupid rap blogs tell you I've stopped rapping... cause I haven't. I'm still here... I'm a young black american woman in 2012.
“Azealia Banks just wants to be free! Free from social media... free from the rap game... free from the haters, and free from the ignorance!"
She recently spoke to MTV News about her forthcoming mixtape ‘Fantasea’, saying there will be plenty of hip-hop on there: “It’s so New York and it’s so raw and it’s so just … everything that needs to be said.
“I’m that rap girl who’s out here and doesn’t have another rapper behind her, but she’s got all this mouth and she’s all over the place. So [this collaboration] was cool for me [because I'm like], ‘What ya’ll gonna say now, when I bust out with that Styles P record?’ Ya’ll not gonna call me fake and make fun of me for having one song. Yeah, I make dance music and ya’ll got jokes, whatever — watch when I come out with the Styles P record.”
