    @jeremydante, Hush it!! This ugly chick is a black, ugly, poor mess!! She is disgusting. No talent and the fact that she tries to come for all the ladies in the game, show’s she is as weak as Kim.

    YES, my fav song from the EP, glad it got the single treatment cause the beat is sexy for summer. The video is cool too, a lot better than bigger artists with bigger budgets (Usher’s Scream loool). Cant wait for the album era to start.

    AzealiaBanksGotNEXT Reply:

    @Chanel,

    This song is about asking a white dude if hes into black girls. Liquorice is a black sweet candy… she also mentions Pumpernickle, Molasses, and Cinnamon.. which are also dark and sweet. “So since your vanilla men spend, can my hot fudge bitches get with your vanilla friends?” “I COULD BE THE RIGHT GIRL … TELL ME IF YOU LIKE YOUR LADY IN MY-MY COLOR…CAN I BE YOUR TYPE? YEAH.”

    Jus explaining the song for the simple-minded folks who cant comprehend anything other than simple nursery rhymes.

    @AzealiaBanksGotNEXT, Well… I couldn’t understand it. Not beceause I’m slow or just can’t comprehend what she’s talking about, I just couldn’t make out the lyrics.

    Mentamir Reply:

    @Chanel, how can you say that her music is weak, when you don’t even understand what she is saying? If you did, you would realize that she is very skilled. She has flow and is lyrically creative. It’s not a bunch of hype. Trust. She’s the real deal.

    no hate but i don’t think she should rap, she is one the most talented singers i’ve ever heard and i think she should focus more on that. But i love her either way and will support her because she is a very talented beautiful rapper (no matter what some of yall be sayin).

    This video is visual crack for me. Love it! It actually made me like the song. I want to like Azealia so badly, but she needs to know that personality goes a long way. Keep it cute or keep your mouth shut and just make good music at the least. :)

    I HATE these Nicki stans. I’m a fan of Nicki Minaj but it’s not that deep. She’s not paying my bills and she’s definitely not gonna pay me enough to sleep on a talented chick like Azealia. While I can’t see myself jamming out to her music in the club, I’m not gonna say she doesn’t have talent and that’s not good. Cause she is VERY talented. I like HER though, I’m just not big on dance/house music.

    cma Reply:

    @georgia23, CO-SIGN, Nicki is far and away my favorite but I also really, really like Azealia. The Nicki fans who blindly defend Nicki and pit her against all other female rappers come off as more confrontational and stubborn than “true” fans.

    The only thing is Az’s series of lines beginning with “black girl” at 2:17 are veryyy similar like Nicki’s “fly girl” lines in “Kill the DJ.” Doesn’t particularly bother me, just worth pointing out. I’d love for a Nick/Az collab.

    This chick is gonna take over female rap i can assure you. Her style is so unique and rap flow is on another level. idk what it is but Azealia Banks reminds me a lot of Left Eye i know she would cosign her. Cant wait for her album to drop

    I mean yes I’m a nicki fan I no every lyric she’s ever made but still being a nicki fan means knowing that yes she’s a bomb ass rapper but their still are good rappers out their and her attitude has nothing to do with her skills as a rapper look at lil Kim and foxy brown they both had extremely bad attitudes and that didn’t stop shit in their carries what stopped them was that they got in trouble with the law.
