It’s no secret that Azealia Banks is one passionate woman who never minces her words. It was no different when she stopped by Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning show for a chance to properly speak out on her beef with Iggy Azalea.
In a roundtable discussion with Laura, Rosenberg and Ebro, the impassioned rapper found herself in a puddle of tears discussing the depiction of Black people in America, the appropriation of Black culture and its music.
“Until you motherf*ckers are ready to talk about what you owe me, at the very f*cking least you owe me the right to my f*cking identity,” said Banks. “And to not exploit that sh*t. That’s all we’re holding on to […] Hip-hop and rap.”
Later pointing out the Cosby rape allegations that eerily coincide with the nation’s unrest over Eric Garner’s and Mike Brown’s deaths. “Like Bill cosby, that sh*t [is] too f*cking timely. That’s too timely that you have Eric Garner, Mike Brown and Trayvon Martin and you f*cking talking about Bill Cosby. What the f*ck?”
The 47-minute interview was an explosive one, to say the least. She holds nothing back, particularly in sharing her feelings toward the Grand Hustle Family and T.I.
