Controversial rapper Azealia Banks follows up her Playboy cover with a few risqué photographed for the April 2015 issue. Playboy has released a couple of safe for work images featuring a cat and leopard themed just like the cover captured by Ellen von Unwerth. In Banks’ profile, a lot of her comments are quite interesting to say the least. Azealia gets candid about racism, sex, love, religion and how she wants to be like Jay Z.
Talking about wanting to have a career like Jay Z’s, she reveals, “That’s the only person I have my eye set on. The race thing always comes up, but I want to get there being very black and proud and boisterous about it. You get what I mean? A lot of times when you’re a black woman and you’re proud, that’s why people don’t like you. In American society, the game is to be a nonthreatening black person…Jay Z hasn’t played any of those games, and that’s what I like.”
