Azealia Banks has announced that she is quitting the rap game in a brief, social media rant.
"I'm entirely too good for 3/4 of the public," she wrote. "They don't deserve me, and I don't deserve to have my life's purpose attached to 'having to work three times as hard as a white woman' lmfao FOH. How about I don't work at all , collect [debt] and make a multi million dollar sh*t talk YouTube channel effectively making an exponentially higher amount of money than I'd make 'working three times as hard'."
She then continued:
"If you cannot tell by now, Azealia Banks has been trying her hardest to hack the 'three times as hard as a white woman code.' Some of you may see it as stupidity but I cannot, have not and will never accept that as a rule of my life, I will actually do the exact opposite in order to disrupt whatever spiritual warfare there is attached to that 'three times as hard' ideology.... that is not an original black woman's thought ..... that is something she has been taught and something I've dedicated my life to undoing," she wrote.
"Although I was naturally born an exceptionally talented being, it behooves me to exhibit normalcy and humanity outside of being the stellar over achieving negress American social archetype each and every one of your favorite black female celebrities are. Even if I must underachieve or be mediocre..."
She also wrote:
“you guys will ALWAYS BE MORE CONCERNED WITH BAD NEWS ABOUT ME THAN ANY OF THE PHENOMENAL MUSIC I MAKE BECAUSE ITS HOW YOU’VE BEEN TAUGHT TO RELATE TO ME. IT DOESNT MATTER HOW GOOD MY MUSIC IS I KNOW YOU GUYS DONT DESERVE IT.”
Adding: “YOU WILL NEVER GET ANOTHER BODY OF AZEALIA BANKS WORK AGAIN. HEAR ME!?!”
The posts have since been deleted from her page. Azealia Banks' talent was never really doubted, but many supporters got turned off by her numerous rap beefs.
Azealia has beefed with everyone from T.I., Nicki Minaj, Remy Ma, and Iggy Azalea to Rihanna, Erykah Badu, and Lil Kim.
