The 212 rapper took to her Instagram story on Monday (January 17) to praise Jay-Z’s maturation of his artistry and to give Lil Kim her flowers.
“Jay-Z and Lil Kim are the only two rappers I feel have gotten consistently better as they get older,” she stated.
“Jay-Z on that Jay Electronica record was really some crazy s**t. I never heard Jay-Z sound like that and it was a clear evolution and maturation of his artistry,” Banks continued – referring to Jay Electronica’s 2020 album A Written Testimony that featured Jay-Z on all ten songs.
The Harlem rapper has always been a huge fan of Jay-Z, so it’s no surprise she has high priases for his talents. Her 2017 album Slay-Z was devised as a tribute to the Roc Nation founder.
In the same Instagram story, Banks also gave Lil Kim her flowers.
“Lil’ Kim did something really masterful with ‘9’. She adulterated today’s trends and made an undeniably New York rap album. A musical triumph if you will. ‘9’ proved that Lil’ Kim is the origin species from which all female rap is spawned.”
