Azealia Banks shares her thoughts on the Fashion Industry

Interesting news going on in the fashion industry. Here is a great article and discussion piece:  Hip Hop artist on the rise, Azealia Banks, feels that the fashion industry eats up new artist and spits them out for the next {I'm paraphrasing here...a little strong lol}.

“I think that too much fashion attention as an artist can actually smother you, and it can actually really, really distract form your music,” the rapper said. “I almost got there with it where…I was this fashion darling. And I was putting out records and the only record anyone would listen to was ’212,’ that was the only Azealia Banks record people would listen to.”Full story..
Honestly artist should never allow another industry or situation to outshine the very reason they hit their certain platform.  You got to roll with the punches too, because the fashion industry can be brutal...for real.
I'm glad AB voiced her thoughts.  Other music artist take heed!
Oh! and here is some new music from Ms. Banks
