YMMV / Azealia Banks

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is "Chasing Time" about getting out of a relationship that's going nowhere or is it about Azealia wanting to be free from her label who mismanaged her for so long and held her music in Development Hell?
  • Awesome Ego: She's well known for having an attitude and saying things that start feuds with other musicians. Some people like that a lot about her, others... not so much.
  • Base-Breaking Character: Her proclivity for starting fights is also this. Some fans love her for never being afraid to speak her mind and refusing to compromise or sugarcoat the message, others feel that this same tendency is immensely self-defeating (and annoying, to boot) and wish that she would spend more time focusing on her music and less time beefing with someone new every week, with her feud with Action Bronson in particular being treated as something that she really should have just let slide for once (not that he came off that much better once the action started).
  • Internet Backdraft: Her rant at Zayn Malik — including calling him a series of racist and homophobic slurs — was not taken well, to the point that even fans that had defended her for years agreed that she had stepped over the line this time.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Yung Rapunxel
  • Overshadowed by Controversy: She's more well known for her rants and beefs on social media and, as of late, several violent public incidents than she is for her music.
  • Signature Song: "212"
