Azealia Banks Vents About White Hip Hop Artists Being Mute On Black Issues


The recent decision not to indict the police officers responsible for the shooting and choking deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, respectively, has got the masses riled up from every day world citizens right on up to music’s elite. Feisty rapstress Azealia Banks is especially pissed.
