Harlem-born rapper Azealia Banks has some trenchant criticism for Middle America in the April 2015 Playboy cover story, assailing everyone from “fat white Americans” to black musicians, most of whom fail to meet her grade.

“I hate everything about this country,” Azealia discloses, unleashing vitriol toward “fat white Americans … who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, [who] are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms.”

The brash starlet also targets black musicians for offering a more sanitized image palatable to a middle-American consumer base: “You have Pharrell or Kendrick Lamar … playing that nonthreatening black-man shit, and that gets all the white soccer moms going, ‘We love him.’ … Jay Z hasn’t played any of those games, and that’s what I like.”

The Playboy cover story is out March 20.
