Rap star Azealia Banks called out Los Angeles Democrats and praised Republican Governor Ron DeSantis while revealing that she moving to Florida.
Speaking during a new interview with the Guardian, Banks blasted the leftist agenda of California Democrats.
She said: “Every which way I turn in LA there’s a Black Lives Matter sign, and then we’re watching swathes of Latino people die every day because they’re considered essential workers.
“There are no Latino Lives Matter signs.
“That’s not to negate any of the very real issues that black people in America face, but in a rich state like California, in a neighborhood like Silver Lake — here’s Jenny with her f*ckin’ like a biodynamic wine bar and her vegan cafe.
“She’s got a Black Lives Matter sign in the window, but sis, did you pay attention to papi who delivered the milk?
“Did he get a free cup of coffee?
“I had to go because I can’t do this — either Covid was gonna kill me, or depression.
“I’m going to f*cking Miami.”
She said she had to carry a gun in crime-infested LA but not in Miami where she feels safer in part because of DeSantis.
“People mind their f*ckin’ business in Florida,” she said.
She said of DeSantis: “He’s focused on the basic sh*t
“There are elderly people in our country without walkers, who don’t have the money to get a septic tooth pulled.
“If we’re talking about divvying up health care funds, those situations should take precedence to facial feminization surgeries and stuff like that.
“I mean, I get it — but that’s a cosmetic surgery.
“Like, does your penis work? Can you pee? You’re not as in trouble as the older woman who can’t afford her dialysis.
“I think DeSantis is practical about a lot of things.”.
She said of her former collaborator Kanye West:
“Kanye, did you know that the Bible was the very book used to enslave your dumb ass?
“Have you ever read the Bible?
“I’m sure you haven’t. ‘Oh, Hitler was a good guy’ – do you think Hitler liked negroes?
“It’s way past shock culture and just into stupidity.
“You deserve to reap what you sow. In the future, when you’re walking down Times Square and you see Kanye West drinking flat Sprite out of a McDonald’s cup out of the garbage can, you can bring it all back to this moment.”
“You’re a f*cking idiot for basically sacrificing the mental health of your daughter.
“You are the last person we need to hear from about black fatherhood and the black family unit,” she said.
