Remember Azealia Banks? The rapper from Harlem, NY who broke out in 2011 with her banger 212? After years of waiting for her debut album, Broke with Expensive Taste, to be released, and a major spat with her record label, Universal, the first single off this highly anticipated album leaked. She posted it on her Soundcloud on Monday and boy, is it hot.
She sticks to her guns – Her flow is tight, and filled with double entendres and cheeky lines revealing her youth, building on her reputation as a fearless rapper who won’t be bound by what the media says of her. She set the bar pretty high for follow-up singles, and it’s going to be interesting to see what she comes up with next.
