How do your favorite rappers write their rhymes? To find out, Complex TV has started a new series, The Process. Hosted by Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg and shot at New York City's legendary Chung King Studios, The Process features intimate conversations with established legends as well as exciting up-and-comers about how they put their rhymes together and the magic that happens when the pen hits the pad. New episodes of The Process premiere every Friday on Complex TV.
In this bonus segment of The Process with Peter Rosenberg, Azealia Banks talks about using explicit lyricism in her music. Cuss words in rap is nothing new. But as evidenced in songs like "L8R" and "212" Banks has a tendency to push the limits with her filthy mouth. The 22-year-old rapper says she gets this from her mom as well as growing up in Harlem. "When you listen to Mase and Cam['ron], that's like a Harlem thing," she states. "You just pop shit."
