Azealia Banks Covers 'Playboy,' Says She Hates 'Fat White Americans' & Tons More

Azealia Banks covers her topless body with two cats in her brand new photo shoot for Playboy.

Here’s what the 23-year-old rapper had to share with the mag:

On not liking the USA: “I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma—that’s really America.”

On why people don’t like her Twitter rants: “It’s always about race. Lorde can run her mouth and talk sh*t about all these other bitches, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner..y’all mother**kers still owe me reparations! That’s why it’s still about race. Really, the generational effects of Jim Crow and poverty linger on. As long as I have my money, I’m getting the f**k out of here and I’m gonna leave y’all to your own devices.”

On being unapologetic: “Yeah, I am loud and boisterous. And I am black, and I am a pain in your ass. But I’m not really talking to you, and that’s what makes those people mad. You’re not invited to this conversation. This is not about you. When you rip a people from their land, from their customs, from their culture—there’s still a piece of me that knows I’m not supposed to be speaking English, I’m not supposed to be worshipping Jesus Christ. All this sh*t is unnatural to me. People will be like, ‘Oh, you’re ignorant because you don’t speak proper English.’ No. This is not mine. I don’t even want this sh*t, so I’m going to do whatever the f**k I want with this language. I’m going to call you a f*g or a cracker or a bitch.”

On not feeling the need to explain herself: “I get annoyed with the fact that I’m even asked to explain myself. Why do I have to explain this to y’all? My little white fans will be like, ‘Why do you want reparations for work you didn’t do?’ Well, you got handed down your grandfather’s estate and you got to keep your grandmother’s diamonds and pearls and sh*t. I get upset when people are like, ‘Why don’t you just make music?’ What would happen if I couldn’t sing? Then I’d just be another black bitch to y’all. It’s really f**king annoying. Black people need reparations for building this country, and we deserve way more f**king credit and respect.”

On her childhood: “We had journals in second grade. I went to PS 166, on 88th Street and Columbus Avenue, and we had a teacher I could not stand. The black kids got in trouble all the time. We were loud or whatever, but whenever she told a white kid to quiet down and they did, she’d be like, whatever. But if she told a black kid to quiet down and one of them sucked their teeth, she’d put them in the corner. I wrote in the journal one day, ‘I cannot stand this white bitch teacher. F**k this white bitch.’ She found my journal and called my mother, who was embarrassed, because my mother used to say stuff like that—‘White people are of the devil. Stay away from them.’ That teacher was scared of me after that.”

Azealia Banks Blasts Kendrick Lamar For Ferguson Comments

Azealia Banks doesn’t have very nice things to say about Kendrick Lamar after his recent comments on Ferguson!

‘”When we don’t respect ourselves how can we expect them to respect us” dumbest sh-t I’ve ever heard a black man say,” Azealia, 23, tweeted.

Her tweet was in response to Kendrick‘s Billboard interview, where he was quoted as saying “I wish somebody would look in our neighborhood knowing that it’s already a situation, mentally, where it’s f—ked up. What happened to [Michael Brown] should’ve never happened. Never. But when we don’t have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us? It starts from within. Don’t start with just a rally, don’t start from looting — it starts from within.”
