Hours ago a Billboard interview with Kendrick Lamar caused a ruckus on social media because the Compton emcee told Iggy Azalea’s critics to leave her alone and he also had some rather controversial words for the Mike Brown and Eric Garner protestors.
However, Azealia Banks is even more controversial and she took to Twitter to give her two cents on Kendrick’s interview (read tweets from bottom to top):
Honestly she’s right. You might not like her delivery but it doesn’t take away from the facts. I’m also so so disappointed in Kendrick Lamar. I can’t believe it.
Go Azealia Banks I am with you, I always embraced my race, I love me and growing up I Never knew our rich American history, the history books don’t even touch on the vast accomplishments of the freed slaves, how we prospered and built our own, and the white folks destroy it. All we know is slavery and we are 2nd hand citizens.
Yep. All of this. As much as I love and support Kendrick, he was wrong.
She’s one of the only ones left who isn’t afraid to say the truth, no matter how harsh.
She really gives not one single f-ck and I appreciate it.
She’s rare. I wish we had more artists like her.
Damn. I really hate Kendrick said what he did because a lot of people will never look at him the same. I just thought he was smarter and more in tune with his people. Oh well.
Well let me go buy her album.
I need to get on Twitter and thank her.
And they will give Iggy a Grammy just because Azealia is telling the truth and they can’t shut her up or intimidate her.
Tweets on fleek!!!!
I’ve never heard any of her songs before but I will change that now. Good stuff.
This girl has a platform and isnt afraid to speak her mind. Much respect.
