Azealia Banks - Azealia Banks: 'I'm Not Quitting Rap'
Rising rapper Azealia Banks has spoken out to clear up reports she's quitting hip-hop.
The 212 hitmaker told fans she would move forward with her career as "a vocalist" rather than a rapper when she deleted her Twitter.com account last week (09Jun12).
In a post on her tumblr.com page, she wrote, "From now on i'm a vocalist, and will not be associating myself with the 'rap game'... or whatever the f**k that means."
Now the star has taken to her tumblr blog once again to assure devotees she still plans to rap, insisting her remarks came out of frustration with the music industry.
Banks writes, "Don't let the stupid rap blogs tell u i've stopped rapping... cause i haven't.. i'm still here...
"I'm a Young Black American Woman in 2012. I'm a 21-yr-old millionaire. i don't have to prove myself to anyone... I've already paid my dues. I and the generations of women who came before me have been through enough stress and c**p to warrant me (the new generation) a very illustrious, lucrative, luxurious, Stress-free career & life.
"And just that's it! Azealia Banks just wants to be free! free from social media... free from the rap game... free from the haters, and free from the ignorance!"
