Here Is Azealia Banks’ ‘Playboy’ Feature

blame it on Meka March 16, 2015

After making the announcement shortly before Valentine’s Day, Azealia’s cover story in the long-running men’s magazine arrived today. In her piece she talks about her affinity for older men, her rambunctious nature on Twitter, and more.

Some choice quotes, a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot, and some pictures can be found below.

WARNING: The final picture is NSFW.

What’s the longest relationship you’ve had?
Four years. It started when I was 17. He was 43. There’s something very wrong with a man that age who wants to date a 17-year-old girl. I didn’t know how to shave my bush and shit like that. I had a hairy pussy. I didn’t know how to wear perfume. I had neon pink barrettes in my hair. And as “212” started to pop off and my career started to happen, he became jealous. He choked me and beat me up, and of course you should not be fucking with a man who puts his hands on you, but I was stupid and young.



If people read your Twitter account and don’t like you, is that because of race?
It’s always about race. Lorde can run her mouth and talk shit 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.



Do you want to leave the U.S.?
Yes! 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.


Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the photo shoot.

Apparently, the “full nude pictorial” hits newsstands – and subsequently, the Internets – this coming Friday (March 20th). I was about to say; if these were the only pictures they had for this feature, then that jig would’ve been so sky-high right now.

UPDATE: One nude shot has surfaced, courtesy of Azealia herself.
