(AllHipHop News) Azealia Banks continues to go down as one of the most controversial artists in the rap game, period.
Most recently, she went on a social media rant stating she hopes to quit music altogether.
In a since-been-deleted post on Instagram, the “212” rapper posted a screenshot attached with a novel caption stating she was done with music, with the disclaimer her music has been overlooked because of her controversies.
In all caps, she writes, “You guys will ALWAYS BE MORE CONCERNED WITH BAD NEWS ABOUT ME THAN ANY OF THE PHENOMENAL MUSIC I MAKE BECAUSE ITS HOW YOU’VE BEEN TAUGHT TO RELATE TO ME.”
She adds, “IT DOESNT MATTER HOW GOOD MY MUSIC IS I KNOW YOU GUYS DONT DESERVE IT.”
As for the caption, she continued, “I’m clearly not ever going to release music again. I’m entirely too good for 3/4 of the public. They don’t deserve me and I don’t deserve to have my life’s purpose attached to ‘having to work three times as hard as a white woman’.”
Her fans did not hesitate to chime in, bringing up the fact that the 28-year-old was responsible for the positions she found herself in.
Of course, Banks was quick to reply, stating she’s hated because she’s “conventionally ugly and black.”
As far as the backlash, Banks has found herself in the midst of many beefs, including Lana Del Rey, Iggy Azalea, and even Russell Crowe.
She seems to still be in the grind, posting pics of herself over in Moscow doing some work with Elle Russia.
