Azealia Banks On Eminem: “I Don’t Need Anything From Him”
Azealia Banks recently went on the attack for Eminem, who rapped about punching her friend Lana Del Rey in his "Shady CXVPHER" alongside Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf. After threatening to punch him in the face on Twitter, Banks chopped it up with The Daily Beast to discuss her rise to fame and her disgust for Eminem.
“This is a dude who raps about killing his mother,” said Banks of Eminem's consistent use of misogynistic lyrics. “And I think it’s casually OK that you eat Hot Pockets and suck on your sister’s titty. That’s casual in the trailer park, right? What’s up? I really don’t care. I’m not trying to fuck Eminem, and I don’t need anything from Eminem. Didn’t he also have a song where a black girl broke his heart and he was calling her a ‘nigger’ and all that shit? OK, Eminem.”
The "Chasing Time" rapper also spoke about the obstacles she's overcome to get to the position she's in today. Banks reflected on her short stint as a stripper and how the success of her "212" single helped her realize her true calling.
"I worked at this little strip club and it was a low point, but I wanted some fast money. I was such a chicken in the strip club. It was not my thing at all. I was there for just two weekends, and then I quit because ‘212’ blew up.”
