Harlem’s Azealia Banks Might Help Clear Nicki Minaj’s Name

July 15, 2017

Since stepping on the rap scene in 2012, Azealia Banks has earned a reputation as one of the most outspoken artists to date. As a Harlemite with a “no filter” attitude, she was quickly branded as a spark plug.Azealia‘s problematic comments on skin bleaching, Donald Trump and continual Twitter spats with other celebrities have often placed her at the center of controversy.

In a recent interview with XXL, however, the 26-year-old seems to have made amends with her past and is taking responsibility for her oftentimes eyebrow-raising antics. While the “212” rapper suggested that the music industry’s double standards are to blame for the downward spiral in her career, she also shared even more eye-opening revelations with fans. The most telling being her clarifying the ghostwriting rumors which have plagued Nicki Minaj’s career for over a decade.

In spite of her track record for taking direct digs at the Pinkprint rapper, Azealia confirmed that Nicki does in fact write her own rhymes during her sit down with XXL. “I have a song that I did with Safaree Samuels,” Azealia said. “Actually, it kind of came out of nowhere. I guess people are like, “Oh, that’s rivalry,” because it’s Safaree, but honestly it’s just industry s**t.”
