We all know how obnoxious Azealia Banks can be in getting her message across, but is she REALLY wrong all the time?

In the past, 24, Azealia Banks has gone on record (via Twitter) to voice her opinion on topics that become mainstream--whether it be in Culture or whatever have you. She's bashed legends, pop stars, engaged in wars with current artists, and nearly retired.

In summary, you cant put a chill on this Harlem, USA chick.

We think about all of the people that she's chosen to go up against and wonder where her logic stands, but in all honesty, she really IS a breath into Hip-Hop culture. Here's my reasoning:

1) THIS IS HIP-HOP, a culture in which was built upon people not biting their tongue and speaking their minds. Back in the day, emcee's had NO problem name-calling folks in their rhymes. That juiced the art of rap. All of a sudden--and I wish I knew when--rappers made it a fault to be REAL.

2) What makes Azealia Banks so important and when she speaks her mind, you basically listen (I mean, it makes headlines at least), is because she isn't the least bit concerned about what someone has to say about her.. or her opinions. If it's one thing about it, the chick has no issue going to bat with anyone who's willing to feed into her madness.

3) She knows what she's doing in the grand scheme of things, I'm sure. Though she probably is very much so into what she feels, let's be real.. She's getting attention out the situation. You may have something to say about her, but you have something to say about her, nonetheless.

Her latest stunt involves intervening in an overzealous moment of Donald Trump praising himself for his latest feature in TIME Magazine. Banks had THIS to say..

In the recent event of Nicki Minaj vs. Miley Cyrus at the VMA's, she also had THIS to say..

Blame it on the alcohol, maybe?

I'm not sure what's ever going to put a chill on her, but maybe one day she'll hit the right spot that gets her music off the ground.

In the meantime, stay tuned for the next episode of The Regardless Life of Azelia Banks.
