    All this whore does is twitter battle, what a joke.

    It’s truly disconcerting in this era 4 male rappers 2 spew anti-female venom. “tell ur mother to go away ub2 bit slore.” Jim Jones…What are you vying to connote? This is third grade school yard grammar. At your age, is this really your preeminent command of the English language lol lol? You too …as well as TI, have a bevy of beautiful women in your lives. Why is their such vitality to disrespect Azealia’s brilliance is telling. You know for her age, she’s got the magic. I’m Auntie4real

    Azealia Banks has the be the most unlikable rapper ever. She’s just talk.

    All she does is talk, her music sucks.

    She’s only famous because she has a bit of a different name.

    I don’t like Jim Jones but she is just a waste of space arguing with everyone and I can’t even name a song she did.

    Why is this even on XXL? Someone please explain this to me. This guy is a joke. On some real stuff, there are so many other unsigned artists and people across the whole entire country that have more talent with music then this clown. He’s got not a single bit of lyricism in his bone. Him even getting signed is a disgrace for Hip Hop (whatever is left of it) and Rap all together. I’m not even hating I respect the kid’s hustle, whatever that may be, but on a true fan basis and aspiring in the music industry as a career this is just a shame.
