Azealia Banks Strips Down, Criticizes Pharrell + Kendrick In New Issue Of ‘Playboy’

Azealia Banks  is never one to bite her tongue, and the “212” rapper leaves no stone unturned in her raw and uncut interview with Playboy. Her uncensored photoshoot with the mag doesn’t hit newsstands until March 20th, but the rapper’s bare body won’t be the only thing folks will be talking about.

In the interview, Banks unapologetically discusses race, religion, middle America and of course sex.  The 23-year-old Harlemite also pulls no punches when it comes to fellow artists such as Pharrell and Kendrick Lamar.

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 s***, and that gets all the white soccer moms going, “We love him.” 

This interview may not earn Ms. Banks any new fans, but something tells us that she probably doesn’t care.When you’re done picking your jaw up from the ground, check out the behind-the-scenes footage of Azealia’s Playboy shoot.
