“A lot of times when you’re a black woman and you’re proud, that’s why people don’t like you. In American society, the game is to be a nonthreatening black person. That’s why you have Pharrell or Kendrick Lamar saying, “How can we expect people to respect us if we don’t respect ourselves?” He’s playing that nonthreatening black man shit, and that gets all the white soccer moms going, “We love him.” Even Kanye West plays a little bit of that game—“Please accept me, white world.” Jay Z hasn’t played any of those games, and that’s what I like.”
That’s Azealia Banks, a great rapper, maybe the best woman rapper out there, she goes where Nicki Minaj didn’t quite get, talking to Playboy Magazine, where she posed nude in the April. And where we nicked these pictures.
Azealia isn’t just “212”, the former stripper, current pain in the butt, her entire Broke With Expensive tastes, is just about as good as as the new Kendrick –the sounds on the new Kendrick are fresher, the rapping on the latest Azealia is better.
I have tickets to see her at iriving Plaza I a coupla months and can’t wait. Meanwhile, here are the pictures Playboy are sharing, she shows everything I the spread though “no pink” was the warning Azealea gave. See more here.
