“Sorry, Not Sorry”: Azealia Banks Says She’s The “Best Female In Hip-Hop”
In “things that make you go hmmm” news…
Azealia Banks hopped on Twitter last night ready to make waves when she decided to proclaim that she is the best female in hip-hop right now. Even without a debut album to serve to the masses to allow them to make that decision on their own, she says she’s the best because she is the only one with her own sound, not trying to copy Nicki Minaj’s steez. Here’s what she said, ripped straight from her Twitter account last night:
Just earlier in the week the rapper was trying to get someone from Sony to buy her out of her contract with Universal because they don’t understand what she’s trying to do with her sound and have been stifling her:
I’m tired of having to consult a group of old white guys about my black girl craft. they don’t even know what they’re listening for or to.
Universal needs to just hand me over to another label who knows what to do with me.
My fans really need some new music. I’ve been gratefully riding off of mixtape fumes for the past two years but I’m more ready than ever…..
And a few months back she blamed the lackluster response to her song “ATM Jam” on Pharrell because he didn’t support her in promoting it:
“The reason ATM jam did poorly is because pharell changed his mind about wanting to be associated with me after he had his lite skin comeback”
“Lite skin niggas are funny.”
I will say that AZ does have some pretty sick wordplay with her music, but honestly, she hasn’t even had the chance to get on the main stage in music because of not only issues with her label, but her own antics. That’s all a lot of people know her for–the beefs, the comments about more established artists, the colorful hair. That’s it. She’s talented and could connect to a lot of people with her unique sound, but we’ve got to see and hear more than the talking. But what do you think? Is she the best female in hip-hop right now? Why or why not?
