Watch: Azealia Banks Live At Coachella 2012 (Full Set)

Unfortunately, Azealia Banks found herself becoming public enemy #1 following her spat with Iggy Azalea and remarks directed at Pop sensation Nicki Minaj.

However, as the saying goes- talent will always speak for itself, and it most certainly did speak when Banks took the stage for her set at Coachella 2012.

Full performance below…

She nailed it.

Though it’s been easy to ignore her talent for reasons aforementioned, Azealia- above Iggy and dare we say Nicki- is a solid live act, wowing the crowd with her energy and skill alone.

For, if you’re going to be really honest, how many acts do you know can entertain a crowd as long as she did without the the pageantry and pyrotechnics  so many of her rivals can’t function without.

Your thoughts?

    Dont get me wrong I like iggy to but I think she just mess her self up a little with that slave master line.. her album won’t probley do good because of that whole thing.

    Azealia banks I can see she is trying to work on her attitude that’s the only issue I have with her but every thing eles it’s 100 percent fresh I didn’t like her 212 single at first.. But I kept listen to it and it grew on me.

    I would not mind seeing azealia banks & nicki on a track together

    Obviously I didn’t watch the whole set, but from what I saw, she does seem like a decent performer.

    S/N: Why does everybody feel the need to have weird-ass colored hair these days. Banks looks alright, but it’s a trend I’d love to see fade.

    Well... says:

    People need to be real. First, no one cares about the fraud Iggy. It’s not so much about her slavemaster comment with me, but just the fact that she SUCKS! She is a knock off Trina, which isn’t saying much. At least Nicki chose to copy Kim when she came out. Iggy’s lyrics are garbage as well as her played out flow.

    Concerning Nicki, I guess her fans are mad because she won’t kiss her behind and because she talked about her horrible wigs. Honestly, she said what most people think about Nicki. And don’t get mad at Azealia when you cosigned Nicki throwing subliminals at Kim way before Kim even came for her.

    Azealia is clearly a problem. Sorry, but lyrically, Nicki can’t touch this girl – listen to this girl in her song called Runnin’. Nicki wishes she had this girls talent and could pull off the blending of Hip Hop and Pop in the way this girl does. Azealia is the only true duel threat since Lauryn Hill. Have you heard her cover of Valerie, Slow Hands, and etc. No autotune. The girl is about to slay everybody across the board with the exception of Adele. They could really go in any direction with her. Nicki fans should be pressed though, she’s the only one that poses a threat to Nicki and has the skills to dethrone her.

    A star is born…

    At first I didn’t like her because of her mouth but she’s got the chops to back that ish up. I love how she combines trip-hop, trans and tribal house with her music. She’s going to go far. I loved the performance.

    I literally cringed every time she said “Nicca” which was like every other second and her mouth is so foul. It’s like Nicki(hair), Kim(foulness) and Foxy(skin tone and street essence) had a love child but she is sorta wack at the same time. :-/ I think I will pass on both her and Iggy.

  38. April 15, 2012 at 7:31 pm says:

    nickis hair? LOLOLOL! pay attention b**** KIM CREATED THAT AMONG HER RAP PEERS. Nicki wasn’t even the second to rock the colored wig anymore..

    Banks FIRE and Hunger is so reminiscent of young Lil Kim and Foxy Brown.

    Yes Gawd, b****! Looks like they’re increasing her fashion budget. They know they let a b**** walk outside looking CRAY! She still needs much work though!

    Wow, fantastic performace! She is really talented. Initially I did not like her b/c of her attitude, but this performance won me over! Now when are they going to address her hair? It’s killing me softly…it’s distracting. Other than that I love this girl!

    Auntie_Jackie says:

    She’s BAD and that’s the END of it. She’s better than Nicki, Iggy, Kreyshawn, or any other new comer.

    She’s got a Foxy Brown feel to her, with her own flow and style. Great.
