“I Was Like Hell Yeaaaaaa!” Azealia Banks To Pose Nude For Playboy, But Not Everyone Is Excited About It

- By

Guess who’s going to be let it all hang out for Playboy?

No, not Kim Kardashian…this time. It’s Azealia Banks! The rapper, who has been very vocal over the past few months about white mainstream media appropriating black culture, and black exploitation in general, will pose nude and appear on the cover of the April “Music Issue” for Hugh Hefner’s world-famous magazine.

According to the publication, the rapper poses in a “frisky pictorial that’s sure to break the Internet” and will provide a “no-holds-barred” interview for the magazine, which basically means she’ll be asked about Iggy Azalea for the umpteenth time.

Banks celebrated the news on her Twitter, and even shared a sneak peek at the spread:

And since some of her idols have done spreads for the magazine, including Naomi Campbell and Grace Jones, Banks was very much down and excited about the opportunity:

“Grace Jones and Naomi Campbell both did Playboy Covers so you know I was like Hell Yeaaaaaa!!!!!”

But not everyone else is as crazy about the idea as she is:

“I respect hers[sic] views and speaking her mind about how black music is being altered to fit a pop crowd but i don’t know if this is the right move.”

“No. No. Nooo. Just no. I know folks can do what they want with their bodies and I always applaud women for taking ownership of their own physical bodies, but I don’t think this is the right move for her at all. Playboy? A magazine that capitalizes off of exploiting women and selling sex is your next move? After you spent all that time berating Iggy Azalea (justifiably so) for exploiting black culture and then you go and allow yourself to be exploited as a black woman on a magazine owned and run by white people too?”

“One minute you speaking like you Spanish, Then you wanna be the black Che Guevara, now your a f**king playboy model. Go figure.”

But as she pointed out, she wouldn’t be the first sista to pose for the pages of the magazine. Others who have done it in the past also include Vivica A. Fox, LisaRaye, Latoya Jackson, Stacey Dash and Garcelle Beauvais.
