1c2ca85710dbbeebe8651081947103a9Azealia Banks is a complicated Harlem born woman. The rapper has been outspoken about race, gender, and sexuality, but in a surprising move, she’s admitted her decision to bleach her skin.

Fans have noticed Azealia looking visibily different on social media. According to Bossipskin lightener Whitenicious has taken credit for Azealia‘s lighter skin tone. “The amazingly talented @azealiabanks before her show in Brazil,” the company posted on Instagram.

Most recently, Lil Kim came under fire for the same accusation after appearing uncharacteristically white in a selfie. And Banks‘ reply to the legendary rapper’s transformation was a compliment amongst a fury of backlash: “Lil Kim‘s bleach is off the chain right now,” Banks tweeted. “All her knuckles, knees and elbows are looking tight as f*ck.”

It’s definitely a controversial turn of events, but it looks like the controversial artist has been eyeing the treatment for some time now.

In an article in Madamenoire by Victoria Uwumarogie, she said “…as a former Banks fan, and a Black woman, I was definitely taken aback at the revelation that she had bleached her skin. Say what you want about her, but that’s just sad.”
