Azealia Banks Says Hip-Hop Is “Turning Into A Minstrel Show”


Azealia Banks has been far from shy when it comes to letting the world know what she thinks about things. She’s let it fly when talking about icons like Pharrell or Kanye West. And let’s not forget her views on Iggy Azalea. So it was no surprise when the rapper took to her Twitter feed to lament the current state of the game.

Banks share her thoughts on the state of hip hop saying the genre ” is turning into a Minstrel Show. It’s really really sad.” No officail word on what prompted the rant but Banks seems to be joining in the current conversation about the culture that’s been sparked by Dame Dash and Chuck D. Both of them have been similarly out spoken on the music’s direction. Check out what Azealia had to say below.
