The Girl With a Big Smile...But Some Nasty Beats...Azealia Banks!


I'm trying to get back into introducing you guys into the best up and coming artists. I'm going to try to figure out a way to highlight unreal mixtapes and get back into writing reviews for albums (of course after my thesis is done. So let's get started on this rainy Saturday morning

There's this girl who's been blowing up on the internet and has become transcending into the mainstream with her magazine articles in GQ, XXL and the Source, to her performances at mainstay concerts like Coachella and SXSW. Her name...reppin' the 212...Azaelia Banks.

Originally Miss Bank$, coming out of New York raised by a single mother after her father passed away when she was 2, she began singing, dancing and acting at a young age. It wasn't until she was 18 when she dropped her first record, Gimme a Chance, in 2009 that she got signed to XL Records. Due to differing of opinions, nothing came out of that venture.

After leaving XL records, Miss Bank$ no longer existed. Azealia Banks moved to Montreal (what up!) and decided to join the YouTube generation by putting up her own produced stuff onto the internet. In the digital age, its hard to make it. But it was on here that Azaelia dropped what is pretty much the biggest breakthrough of her career, 212.

     

The track, produced by Diplo, blew the f*** up. Currently at over 11 million hits, its a joint dedicated to eating up the lady parts. It helps that the beat is ridiculous but Azealia began hitting mainstream success getting co-signs left and right, including Kanye West. Shortly after, Interscope Records signed her and its a wrap. Everyone wants to work with her...and success is only noticed when people start beefing and she's already got beef with cats in the game.

“People say, ‘You just got famous on YouTube.’
I’m like, ‘So? You didn’t get famous anywhere.’”

A known bi-sexual, the girl has no bounds as to what she wants to do. Just announced was the fact that she's signed with Lady Gaga's publicist. Known for her off the wall antics and the "I don't give a f***" demeanour, its going to take Azealia to new leaps and bounds. She's already in the studio with big names...Missy Elliott and her have most recently worked together. The world is her oyster, and she's ready to just start stomping around in it. With no major EP, mixtape or album...and singles that are just killing it right now...watch out for this girl to blow!

Sorry for the Late Posts, But I Got a Thesis to Write


What's poppin? Now the next few weeks are going to be rough because my supervisor challenged me to get my thesis written up by May 10th...which is about 20 days from now. So I have to write everything so frankly I won't be spending too much time posting. Posts from here on out until I get some decent time will be done like this...sorry for the inconvenience but a homey needs to edumacate himself.
