Azealia Banks Keeps Up Eminem Beef

Rapper says she doesn't need "anything" from Detroit native.

Published November 19, 2014

Azalea Banks isn’t exactly one to back down from conflict until she is good and ready. Banks continued to blast her current foe, Eminem, in an interview with The Daily Beast.

When asked about her retaliatory threat to choke the 40-year-old after he let loose a similarly violent freestyle aimed at her friend, Lana Del Rey, she went at him once again. “This is a dude who raps about killing his mother,” she said of the misogyny in Em’s lyrics. “And I think it’s casually Ok that you eat Hot Pockets and suck on your sister’s t***y. That’s casual in the trailer park, right?"

In spite of the diss, Banks says Eminem doesn’t matter to her. “I really don’t care. I’m not trying to f--k Eminem, and I don’t need anything from Eminem,” noted the Harlem native. “Didn’t he also have a song where a Black girl broke his heart and was calling her a ‘n***er’ and all that s**t? OK, Eminem.”

Besides the Em stuff, Banks talked about growing up with a physically abusive mother, moving in with her older sister at 14, and working as an exotic dancer during what she called a “low point” in her life. Luckily for her, the stripper job didn’t last very long. “I wanted some fast money,” she said. “I was such a chicken in the strip club. It was not my thing at all. I was there for just two weekends, and then I quit because ‘212’ blew up.”
