It’s been an exciting year for Azealia Banks to say the least. She might not have received as much high-profile attention as Nicki Minaj but in terms of being a new, dope female artist, she’s achieved some looks. It’s a dirty game and so a few disses helped boast her profile, a few Twitter rants added to those retweets and her sassy attitude only helped kill any stereotypes or comparisons to other female performers. Azealia was money in the bank in 2013 all without even putting out an official debut album.

    Yo! don’t sleep on Azealia Banks, not my cup of tea either but Big as fu.k all over the world Especially Europe. Getting that real money, not dollars but pounds and Euros, do the algebra! She’s playing at Glastonbury this weekend and lots of other shows all over the world. She’s on heavy rotation in London and everywhere.
