[VIDEO] Azealia Banks Gets Real In Hot97 Interview

If you didn’t think Harlem femcee was great before, her recent Hot97 interview will surely reel you in. After months of asking, the #princessofrap Azealia Banks finally hit up the respectable Hot97 interview promo slot – thankfully without Charlemagne The God (probably because he’s an Igloo Australia fan). There’s a certain aura of intelligence around Banks that is missing in hip-hop females today and this shines so brightly while she discusses her most controversial topics – Igloo Australia and TI. You don’t really hear Nicki Minaj or Iggy Azalea publicly speaking up on cultural issues such as appropriation and gay rights, but Azealia took it there and further. After only around ten minutes in, host Ebro is so floored by Azealia’s ability to discuss America’s toughest issues that he becomes speechless. Without giving up too much, I’ll just say that this is Azealia’s most important interview to date. Here’s a few highlights:

  • On Iggy Azalea: “Put her in the pop category. Put her with Katy Perry. Put her and Miley Cyrus in the same fuckin’ box. Don’t put her with hip-hop.”
  • On “Fancy”: “You got two white women singing a rap record.”
  • On Tiny: “You got this fuckin’ bitch on VH1, and she can’t read. You hear the fuckin’ sound effects as she’s trying to read.”
