Azealia Banks claims Drake has had cosmetic surgery

Harlem native and music industry bad girl Azealia Banks has recently joined the current hate mob attacking Drake as he prepares to release his forthcoming album, For All The Dogs. Joe Budden, Charlamagne Tha God and Birdman have all had fun critiquing the Canadian emcee, and Banks is the latest to join in. 

Although most have been slandering the rapper for his musical abilities and business practices, Banks made it her mission to mock his looks by claiming the Scorpion musician has had cosmetic surgery and even suggested that his biracial background and Canadian nationality make him a less authentic rapper. 

Taking to Instagram, Banks wrote, Does Drake know his nose job and liposuction is not Hip Hop??” she shared on her Instagram Story. “Does drake know that no one who actually understands Hip Hop — a culture born from oppressed, don’t reeeeeeeeallly care about his soft-toothed colonized confused mixed-race facsimile attempts to exhibit the true authenticity of an actual MC?”

She continued, “Does Drake know his desperate attempts to gangsterize Canadian ‘street life’ is an all-encompassing failure in and of it itself?” The Toronto native is not the first artist Banks has attacked for their looks. However, the ‘L8r’ rhymer wasn’t finished there. 

She then proceeded to attack Birdman, insinuating that it is weak of him to address Joe Budden over the internet, posting, “Does Birdman know how low IQ, tacky and how much of a fucking loser he looks threatening Joe Budden via the internet.”

She did admit to some favourable opinions concerning the Cash Money founder, confessing, “Loved ur verse on ‘Constantly Hating’, but it has been a minute since anyone cared for your music.” But continued to drag Drake, “Drake is redundant as hell. Only weird nepo babies and Eastern European immigrants who wear USS polo association, cool water and media fuck boys actually care for him.”

Ironically, it has been a decade since Azealia Banks peaked, and although she has released songs for her cult fanbase, such as ‘New Bottega,’ unlike Drake, her ability to sell out large capacity venues across the US is nil, and as far as respect within hip-hop is concerned, she has none.
