Rappers' Delight: Nas Shoots "Bye Baby" Video With Lance Gross + Azealia Banks On Her Abusive Mother

 

Nas recently shot the next video off his hit Life Is Good album.  And it's for his very personal single "Bye Baby."  Check out some pics inside, plus Azealia Banks talking about her abusive mother...

Lance Gross, Omar Benson Miller and Nas' little brother were all on hand for the "Bye Baby" shoot.  The song is all about his break up with Kelis and is a pretty personal track. Lance & Nas on one screen?  Yes please.

The rapper actually shot the vid on August 7th in Los Angeles.  But sneak peeks were released today.  The video, directed by Aristotle, is dropping soon. 

In other rap news, Azealia Banks is getting extra personal in her interviews as of late.  In her newest Dazed & Confused cover story (the magazine that was banned in several countries because of its risque cover shot), she opened up about her rough childhood. 

She previously she said her mother helped her feel like they were richer than they actually were and kept her laced with nice things, even though they lived in the hood.  Now, in this new cover story, Ms. Banks said her mother also became abusive when Azealia's father died of pancreatic cancer:

 

'We grew up in the hood, but we had some money. But I moved out when I was 14 to go live with my older sister, because my mom just had, well... issues.'

'After my dad died, my mom became really abusive – physically and verbally.

'Like she would hit me and my sisters with baseball bats, bang our heads up against walls, and she would always tell me I was ugly.'

'I remember once she threw out all the food in the fridge, just so we wouldn’t have anything to eat.

'It was like growing up a feral child, being raised by this person who was always yelling and screaming, hitting you and dragging you around and s***.'

And about her early sexuality:

'Growing up I was so curious about boys. I just loved them.

'I’d always get my recesses taken away for letting boys touch my butt in the lunch line I got in trouble for fooling around in school a lot.

'I just wanted to be touched, ya know? I just wanted to have sex.

'And my mom was always working so there was never anyone around to tell me no.'
 

Interesting.  The issue is on stands now....where it's not banned.

You know damn well you don't see alot of black females calling themselves Monroe. That's a bold faced lie and you know it, and Lola Luv don't count. Sometimes you just make up stuff as you go along.

You should consult your

You should consult your mother. Obviously she failed to show you a positive image of a strong black woman. But, I was raised by a single mother due to my father's death. She managed a career on wall street ,and raised 2 daughters who are now doctors and engineers. So, if that doesn't answer your question or refute your ignorance, we shouldn't even be conversing.

By generalizing black women

By generalizing black women with your "facts" and stereotypes you are NOT helping them, you're acknowledging a problem without offering a solution. You can't tear a person down without offering a hand to help them up. Just saying...

How the hell am i tearing

How the hell am i tearing them down???Black women are tearing these CHILDREN DOWN and you all don't say a damn word about it. But when i address the issue and bring it up IM WRONG???lol. I mean i say what i say because I WORK WITH THE YOUTH AND I SEE THE SOURCE OF THE DAMN PROBLEM AND IT'S BLACK WOMEN...Im just going to be real about it.. Now the solution to this problem would be that black women get a REAL MAN that they MARRY and have children with. SO THAT THERE CAN BE A BALANCE IN THE HOMES!!!!But that's not going to happen because black women hate structure and order for the most part.

When you say "them" who are

When you say "them" who are you referring to? You contradict your initial statement of not generalizing by saying "offering a hand to help them". If I am not mistaking you are always boasting about latinas on this african american website. Black women, White women, Hispanic(latina) etc. do not need assistance on the basis of race, but the basis of individual character....

I'm saying that if LetsGetit

I'm saying that if LetsGetit want to rag on black women but then say he got love for them, he doesn't need to just point out the problems he has with them (BLACK women) he needs to offer a solution!! Personally I don't like to generalize but I will state my opinion and NOT say sorry for doing so!!

Something about Nas has

Something about Nas has always given me goosebumps, even back when he had a chipped tooth, he still had hella swag!! I think "Dazed & Confused" is an understatement to describe that crusty skid mark aka Azealia Banks...I believe she is puttin some money in Natasha's paypal account because nothing about this chick is worth a SINGLE post, let alone one daily!!

I love Azelea Banks, strength

I love Azelea Banks, strength in sharing parts of her life because some would be embarrassed. Im happy that her & her mom get along now. After she did her popular video on youtube that got her discovered she said she showed her mom. R.I.P to her dad too. I like that she doesnt try to polish herself perfect & shares her life experiences as a teenager even though she still only 21 years old. I also like that Nas & Kelis get along even though they are exes. Just love it

I see her and letsgetit got

I see her and letsgetit got the same mother.
