Could Azealia Banks be Rap’s Female Kanye West?

by on October 25, 2012

I don’t support comparisons much but, this is not only a compliment, but a question that has been lingering in my head for months. Doesn’t Azealia Banks remind you of a female Kanye West? Not only does Ms. Banks stay on your mind for having no regard to holding her tongue and her catchy rhymes, but she could be the “Louis Vuitton Don” with her impeccable fashion sense as well.

The lovely female emcee and Harlem, NY native has been known to be the topic of many conversations in the industry for her recent controversial beef’s with other female emcees from “the Queen Bee”- Lil Kim to Iggy Azalea. Although, Kanye may not be known for his rap battles and beefs, he is known for his controversial statements and style. Likewise, Banks has taken the fashion world by storm, even though she is a new face to the rap game, her skills have given her a chance to connect with big wigs in the fashion community.

Banks is living the life of what other 21 year old’s her age can only imagine, her resume is being nicely built. She has gone from being the muse of Karl Lagerfeld (the creative director of Chanel), to becoming the face of Alexander Wang’s fall T line, cover girl for SPIN magazine’s Sep/Oct 2012 edition, to now being apart of ASOS’s #bestnightever Holiday Campaign along with singer Ellie Goulding and model Charolette Free. Azealia Banks tweeted last night in excitement about the campaign. Now I can’t wait for the winter! I must admit that I am an avid Azealia Banks fan! Follow the licorice b*tch: @AZEALIABANKS

Mr. West is awesome, and always fresh, dressed, like a million bucks, but do you think that Azealia Banks is on that level? You already heard what I think, now tell me how you feel.
