The always bold, unapologetic Azealia Banks has made a name for her unabashed display of naked emotions and raw, uncut perspectives in the entertainment industry, the state of hip-hop, race relations, and sexuality. Now, the 23-year-old rap star is getting ready to take her bare, naked truth to another level. Banks has announced that she will be on the April 2015 cover of Playboy magazine.

Banks, who is proud of her invitation to the raunchy publication, as it will reveal another side of her to the world, tweeted the good news to her fans.

“Now I can finally tell you, I’ll be on the cover of @Playboy’s April Music Issue!!”

In addition to baring her nude body for the cover, the outspoken Banks is also sitting down for an interview with Playboy. Fans expect that Banks is going to let it all hang out in the interview, giving readers much to contemplate, discuss, and find offensive.

Banks recently made news when she decided to go toe-to-toe with rapper T.I. She and T.I. have been feuding because of controversial remarks that Banks made about T.I.’s wife, calling her “illiterate.” In addition, T.I. was angered by Banks’ criticism of Iggy Azealia, an Australian-born female rapper who is affiliated with T.I.’s record label. Banks went as far as to call T.I. a “coon.”

Most recently, Banks’ comments made during an interview with SiriusXM regarding gay men and misogyny have stirred up controversy around the Harlem rapper:

“I definitely think a lot of the time with the ‘White gay media’ — especially with female artists — in order for you to seem successful or seem feminine you have to desire their approval. I feel like a lot of times gay men can be way more misogynistic than even straight men. Even how they come to you picking at your hair, telling you you’re fat, telling you all this other sh*t. Telling you how to be a woman. What the f*ck do you know about being a woman? You called me a b*tch, I’ll call you a f*g.”

Even though Banks went off on gay men in the interview, she said she is not “homophobic.”

“To be homophobic would imply that I’m, like, ‘I can’t sit next to a gay man cuz Imma catch the gay,’ but I already caught the gay. I feel like when I use the word ‘f*g,’ it comes from, like, [it’s] a feminist point of view, not a homophobic point of view. It’s really just kinda like you feel attacked as a woman.”

There’s no doubt that Banks’ fans and enemies alike will be checking out the April issue of Playboy magazine to experience more of the rapper’s…charm.
