October 7, It's that time again folks! I am seriously surprised that we haven't seen these Netflix successes more directly influence or seemingly motivate more 'quality control' in the larger MCU. Luke Cage is a fantastic series. I don't think anyone could argue that. It has brilliant performances throughout Mike Colter is stoic, suave and powerful with an almost completely non-white cast. But with the focus being so organically on Black culture and Harlem which is brought to wonderful life and almost a character in its own right , I still can't shake the feeling that there were cultural and social commentaries, jokes and poignant moments that I was missing within the show because of my lack of knowledge and understanding of black culture and Harlem history.
Life and career[ edit ] Early life and career beginnings[ edit ] Azealia Amanda Banks was born the youngest of three girls on May 31, , in New York City 's Manhattan borough. 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. She never finished high school, instead choosing to follow her dream of becoming a recording artist. Banks sent both tracks to American DJ Diplo. He wound up calling me "amateur" and the XL interns started talking shit about me. It just got real fucking funny.
