Azealia Banks To 6ix9ine's Fans: You Support Him, But Not Me?

The polarizing rapper bragged to his haters about being a "pedophile."

Published March 10th

Azealia Banks is sharing more of her personal thoughts on social media and while her comments are usually polarizing and borderline offensive in nature, her latest rant sees her actually make some sense.

The "212' MC penned a lengthy Instagram post criticizing those who chastise her while glorifying mediocre, problematic and child-endangering talent like admitted "pedophile" Tekashi 6ix9ine.

Her statement is accompanied by a screeshot showing the link to an article where Tekashi addressed his haters, claiming, "a 'pedophile' is doing better than you." His comment was made in reference to him pleading guilty to sexual misconduct charges concerning a minor back in 2015.

A comment from a fan of Banks' is also shown in the screenshot, seeing him questioning how a man who brags about his criminal past receives unwavering support while his fave fails to prosper.

"Hip hop just literally refuses to put its arms around me and embrace me," she wrote. "As soon as T.I. threw me under the bus for a white girl black men were influenced to just treat me like the ugly black girl and it's been a snowball effect of hatred from black men that I have never ever been able to fight alone."

After naming a few more men who she claims did her wrong, Banks ended with these words:

"The influence male rappers who have s**t on me have on black men in general is tough because it makes it seem almost as if I also don't need help or need protecting," she said. "AZEALIA NEEDS YOUR LOVE TOO."

Hip hop just literally refuses to put its arms around me and embrace me lol. Literally ... as soon as T.I threw me under the bus for a white girl black men were influenced to just treat me like the ugly angry black girl and it’s been a snowball effect of hatred from black men that I have never ever been able to fight alone. T.i even threatened me with physical violence and hiphop said it was okay.. Ebro even had the nerve to laugh at me for being spat on by Russell crowe... the one male rap superior I thought I had in my corner threw me under the bus to save some white dude .... people don’t realize how much I’ve dealt with these past years and hip-hop still refuses to acknowledge/respect my femininity all I do is get dogged out everyday... Allllllll I need for this shit to change is to be co-signed by jay-z. Like literally ... if jay-z said “I listen to Azealia banks’ music.. she’s dope,” everyone would get off my back and I’d really have a fighting chance. Because this isn’t fair.... how can y’all niggas let a pedophile through but keep trying to pretend like y’all don’t see me out here working my ass off to contribute to this culture ? Sounds stupid but it’s seriously the reason I date so many white guys because it’s all I can get lol... the influence male rappers who have shit on me have on black men in general is tough because it makes it seem almost as if I also don’t need help or need protecting .... AZEALIA NEEDS YOUR LOVE TOO.
