Female rapper Azealia Banks unveiled her new look - and many on social media are calling her new look "frightening."

Azealia is a very talented and controversial rapper, singer, songwriter, and actress. She first burst onto the scene in 2011, when her single "212" went viral and entered several international charts. Banks subsequently signed with Interscope and Polydor Records.

Banks has released two mixtapes (Fantasea in 2012 and Slay-Z in 2016), one studio album (Broke with Expensive Taste in 2014), and one extended play (1991 in 2012). Her long-delayed second studio album, Fantasea II: The Second Wave, awaits release; the lead single, "Anna Wintour", was released in April 2018.

In 2017, Banks had her feature-film debut in Love Beats Rhymes, receiving positive reviews for her performance as lead actress in a film also featuring Common, Jill Scott and John David Washington.

Throughout her career, Banks' social media presence and outspoken views, specifically regarding U.S. politics and race, have attracted significant controversy, criticism, and media scrutiny.

And she's also known for being involved in controversies. Just like now

Here are the pics of her new look:




Most recently, Banks has slammed Cardi B for speaking on everything from Trump’s government shutdown, to Tomi Lahren but completely ignoring the ‘ethnic cleansing’ of the Dominican Republic.

On her Instagram Story, Banks posted a screenshot of Cardi’s take on conservatives along with a caption that calls out the Bronx rapper’s hypocrisy due to her Dominican heritage, per Complex.

“I would love to see Cardi say something to the leaders of the Dominican Republic about its ethnic cleansing and deportation of Haitians,” Banks wrote. “Going after Trump is just an easy way to get press. Don’t chastise Trump and Tomi Lahren for being racist if you can’t be bothered to criticize your own people about the rampant racism in the Dominican Republic.”
