Hip-Hop Rumors: Azealia Banks No Longer Wants To Be Associated With The 'Rap Game'


Harlem rapper Azealia Banks is making headlines in social media once again. After beefing with T.I., Iggy Azalea, and Lil’ Kim on Twitter, Banks has deleted her Twitter page and does not want to be associated with the “rap game” anymore.

News broke yesterday that she was had split ways with Troy Carter, Lady Gaga’s manager, to instead allegedly be managed by her rumored boyfriend, 40-something manager, Dave Holmes.

Well, it looks like Azealia Banks couldn’t take the heat in the kitchen and deleted her Twitter page citing it as making her “too accessible.” She explained her reasoning on her tumblr. page. Check out what she wrote below:

“No longer wishing to be a rapper,” she wrote. “i never was…. and as soon as i started paying attention to bullshit urban media, i started getting myself in trouble. From now on i’m a vocalist, and will not be associating myself with the ‘rap game’… or whatever the fuck that means… no more twitter for me… it makes me entirely too accessible.”

So will Banks vamoose herself from rapping?

“I’m still going to rap,” said Banks. “i just don’t want the label and all the other crap that comes with the ‘rap game’… it’s boring. rather be a dance artist.. lol.”

Azealia Banks’ new mixtape, Fantasea, will be out on July 4.

    I agree twitter makes celebs too accessible to miserable 
    people with no life who just want to egg a celeb on, say something
    negative to get a rise and reaction.  All celebs should take her advice
    and stop being so dayum accessible to losers on twitter.  Stop responding them

    duh, she never was a rapper and seemed to be a dance artist to begin with. that white chic Iggy has a better flow….

      BULLSHIT-THEY BOTH SUCK, THE WHITE GIRLS LYRICS ARE WORSE WHEN IT COMES TO IGNORANCE AND FAKENESS

    • Sniggih Smalls

      IGGY??? She already admitted she use to get Boo’d out of Cyphers and cant Rap. Azalea was actually a real rapper from Harlem sorta like Foxy Brown flow. But she gave up now… WTF.

    • Banks > Iggy all day long. idk what you talking about. Iggy is no good.

  • Vikram662

    She’s the female Charles Hamilton.

  • breed500

    funny thing is…you where never a rap artist to begin with…and that is a compliment..she has a lane to herself,so getting out of people’s perceptions as “rap artist”makes perfect sense..But then there’s the lack of self reflection..that will hurt her wherever she decides to place herself..this girl has a career if she can grow up..

  • Attention Whore.  She’s full of herself and seems a little Bi-polar

  • black_messiah9000

    She’s pretty accurate about what rap is today; bullshit. Why is it called the “rap game” anyway? Look at the people who subscribe to it. It’s almost entirely impossible to take rap music seriously  because of whats at the top of the mound and what is coming down the pipe to get there. People are making garbage and it gets praised like it’s gold. No to mention the mind set thats displayed within the culture; immature, petty, materialistic, anything foolish and nothing remotely close to having true soul in the music. Watch how fast some idiot is going to throw rocks at my comment. Why can’t mainstream rappers do anything else but talk about how rich THEY are instead of making music to dance to or uplifting the people who support them? Hip hop has turned into the black man’s “Hair Metal”; it’s glorified shit.

  • jamaicanbornanbreed

    Yea the game full of snakes, ran by the serpent, the devil himself… at least she jumping off a sinking ship before she got trapped in it.  There is no loyalty in the Industry, and even worse these cats sell their soul or do homosexual acts behind the doors in these label exec offices just for the money and fame… so technically all rappers you see “big time” are down low homo, or dead men walking from selling their soul, they took the offer Christ rejected in Matthew 4:8-9!!!
