Here at WatchLOUD, we pride ourselves on being insane. So when I was up last night at 4:30 in the morning, I saw somebody retweet Azealia Banks. Here are the two tweets:
It was a thing to say Death Grips influenced Yeezus, and frankly I haven’t listened to enough Death Grips to know, but at least she’s not alone here. While most feign outrage at her pugnacious tweets, honest outbursts like these are endearing and honest. She even admits she praised Kanye for Yeezus at one point.
It was an odd thing for her to say, though. I’m not really here to judge her, but to come at Kanye of all people, just as she’s gaining popularity amongst critics, fans and dissenters alike, seems like a strange move.
Five minutes later, the tweets were nowhere to be found.
