Azealia Banks Quits 'Rap Game' & Twitter

Azealia Banks poses for a photo at the SiriusXM Studios on Tuesday (June 5) in New York City.

The 21-year-old singer recently parted ways with her manager Troy Carter and decided to disconnect herself from the rap music genre.

“No longer wish to be a rapper. I never was… and as soon as I started paying attention to bullsh-t 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 f–k that means,” Azealia wrote on her Tumblr.

“No more twitter for me… It makes me entirely too accessible,” she added. “Catch me on tumblr… it’ll be more interesting.”

Azealia later clarified, “I’m still going to rap. 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.”

    Seriously, why is this even posted as a story? I don’t think many people know of her and it’s not like she’s anything special to know of either.

  • OMG

  • A

    Hmm….I wish her the best of luck in all her future endeavors but I can’t help but wonder what is really going on behind the scenes.
    The music industry is corrupt and I hope she stays far away from hiphop and misogynist rap.

    @The Brain: YOU STOLE MY COMMENT! lol jk, but seriously, those are my sentiments exactly. All these people let their 2 minutes of fame destroy what little of brains they have. I don’t know her, don’t care to know her or her music.
