Azealia Banks: 'Vibe' Cover with Diplo!

Azealia Banks rests her head on super producer Diplo‘s chest for the August/September 2012 cover of Vibe magazine, on stands now.

Here’s what the 21-year-old rapper opened up about:

On meeting Kanye West in London last year for the first time: “He hit me up like, ‘You’re mad talented. What do you eat for breakfast?’ The whole conversation was pretty dense—two Geminis in one room. So it was so many ideas flying. We spent the whole day together, but the best part was dinner. We’re eating out the same plates with chopsticks, and he’s freestyling for me. I was like, ‘Oh s–t, this is real!’ You know how you smile so much your face hurts? And you just feel so busted like… (screeches).”

On publicly addressing Lil’ Kim instead of sending a private message or e-mail: “That’s what we did, and that s–t is over. Yo, listen, [Lil’ Kim], this black cloud you got over you—don’t try to push that over me. You can keep that, because as soon as I released ‘Jumanji’ is as soon everybody forgot about you. I have my hand on the dial; I can control how hot and cold you are right now. So I’m not even going to give it to you. I tried to make a legitimate track with you, tried to collaborate. I was bigging her up and she keeps throwing it back in my face. I tried.”
