Rising Harlem-bred rapper Azealia Banks might not be on the best of terms with fellow up and comer, Iggy Azalea, but there is one rapper she’s willing to collaborate with. Though she’s had some choice words about Nicki Minaj’s shtick, did have kind words for what matters most about her fellow rapper: the music.
Azealia tells VIBE.com: “Sonically, I think Pink Friday is great. The vocals are clean. The beats are mixed well and the hooks are catchy. Nicki Minaj has really mastered the art of popular songwriting. I do like her mixtapes a lot, though. I think she’s a brilliant lyricist, but I think a lot of the things she started doing with her look were distracting. I think she’s talented enough to sustain a very fruitful career without the ugly wigs and ugly costumes.”
And when asked if she’d like to work with Minaj, Banks replied, “Hell yeah. Nicki Minaj is mad sexy.”
