Despite saying that Kanye West, “lost all credibility when he became a Kardashian”, Azealia Banks took to Instagram on Sunday to apologize and give praise to Mr. West. In her message to Kanye, Banks wrote “despite whatever jokes or rude things I’ve said about (Kanye) in the past, I think about this man for AT LEAST an hour EVERY SINGLE DAY.”
Banks continued to say, “you’ve inspired so many of us and after getting past my own stupid ass grudge I was holding against you, I reaaaallllly hope and pray you get to get out all ofyour dreams because you’ve been one of, if not, the main reason I felt confident in exploring all sorts of music genres.” Showing a lot of humility in her words, Banks’ tribute is a huge departure from telling Kanye “I don’t even look up to (Kanye) anymore. I look past him,” just last year.

In a recent interview with Billboard, rapper Kendrick Lamar gave a number of comments on policy brutality and race. Specifically, Kendrick explained “I wish somebody would look in our neighborhood knowing that it’s already a situation, mentally, where it’s f—ked up. What happened to (Michael Brown) should’ve never happened. Never. But when we don’t have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us? It starts from within. Don’t start with just a rally, don’t start from looting, it starts from within.” While many may agree with King Kendrick, rapper Azealia Banks did not, engaging in a number of tweets which sound off against Kendrick’s comments and calls his remarks “the dumbest sh*t I’ve ever heard a black man say.” Check out Kendrick’s full interview here, where he also pays respect to Iggy Azalea (who had a recent feud with Banks), and check out Azealia Banks’ full comments on her Twitter below.
