Azealia Banks gets a lot of shit, like people slating her because she’s a hype artist at the minute. But I genuinely think she deserves the hype. Apart from being a pretty good rapper and some of her lyrics are quite clever, you can see that she knows her shit about music. She’s just co-written and featured on a track for Scissor Sisters, covered Interpol and sampled Peter Bjorn & John. On top of that, I saw a video of her yesterday where she finished 212 live by going into Firestarter. Pretty fucking cool. Will people still give a shit about her this time next year? If they look past the hype and she keeps delivering then yeah.
