Azealia Banks was interviewed for the cover story of the latest issue of The Hundreds' magazine, and the rising talent didn't hold back. Based on her little Twitter altercation with Kreayshawn, we knew that Azealia isn't afraid to speak her mind, and she continues to say exactly what she thinks. Vol. 3 Issue 2 of The Hundreds Magazine will be out on February 2. Here are some highlights:

On Kreayshawn:

"As much as Kreayshawn would love to be considered part of this 'rap game,' she's not.  I guess a part of me is kind of annoyed that those white girls are making these songs, and it's like if these girls were black and making the same songs would you be that interested?"

On Nicki Minaj: 

"The butt, the hair, the this, the that, all the other shit, like... As much respect that I have for her, we've seen you do this already, what else can you do?"

On her career aspirations:

"I'm trying to be innovative, I want to be like Missy Elliott was, respected and accepted for doing her own thing."

Azealia also spoke to Contact Music about her experience with XL:

"It was almost the day I signed to XL that they started checking out. There were a good seven to eight months where I was just sending them texts and no-one would say anything or pick up the phone or respond to my emails. Nothing. And it started to ruin me.

I was like, this is not what I worked so hard my entire life to do - to be rejected by some English guy in West Bumblefrickin' nowhere London, telling me I'm amateur or something like that. So I just said, 'Screw you!'"
