After posting a series of tweets that may have signified she was getting out of the rap game, Azealia Banks refutes all of those retirement reports by taking to Tumblr to set the record straight.
"don't let the stupid rap blogs tell u i've stopped rapping.. cause i haven't.. i'm still here.. i just know that being as REACTIVE of a person as i am... i can't be reading EVERYONE'S thoughts all day. its easy for people to hide behind their twitter pages. so they'll say sh*t they wouldn't say if you were to ever be face to face. and when they say these things... and find out that i'm a REAL person.. and they get a REAL response.. they don't know what to do... ... then I'm standing there looking like the bad guy because i got too real. [sic]"
She then goes on to speak about being a female in the rap industry and that she's already accomplished a number of goals.
"I'm a Young Black American Woman in 2012. I'm a 21-yr-old millionaire. i don't have to prove myself to anyone....I've already paid my dues. I and the generations of women who came before me have been through enough stress and crap to warrant me (the new generation) a very illustrious, lucrative, luxurious, STRESS-FREE career & life. and just that's it! Azealia Banks just wants to be free! free from social media.. free from the rap game.. free from the haters, and free from the ignorance! [sic]"
