"The music industry is like a machine," says Azealia. "It’s always going, and this new generation of artists — me, A$AP Rocky, Rita Ora — we’re the fuel that’s keeping it going. And once you get in that machine you’ve gotta run with it. There’s a crazy inertia that’s been going for years and years and years, and it’s not gonna stop for you, so you’ve gotta keep fucking working. The minute you stop working, that’s when you get stuck in the gears. And that’s when it grinds you up and spits you out." But doesn’t that constant work leave zero time for normal-person stuff? "That’s what you give up when you sign that contract," Banks replies. "This hustle and bustle becomes your normal-person shit."
