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

Published: Sunday 15th Apr 2012 by David

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 reasonsย 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 ย so many of her rivals can’t function without.

Your thoughts?

    Yes Ma’am was just watching these performances last night and this morining…She is a way better performer than Iggy and Nicki…That is no question. Can’t wait for the ep…1991 sounds so hot, hope she makes it a single!

  7. Mike April 15, 2012

    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

  8. Texas Cowgirl April 15, 2012

    I prefer Iggy over Banks but I am a Lover of Female Rap. I hope that both win.

  9. Jordan April 15, 2012

  10. Jordan April 15, 2012

  11. Aaa April 15, 2012

    Public enemy no. 1?? Whenever 212 gets played in a club people go mad. Cant say the same for anything by nicki or iggy

  12. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie + Amy Winehouse +Whitney Houston) April 15, 2012

    she slayed!

  13. danny April 15, 2012

    She killed this f****** s***. Nicki could never on stage

  14. NAUDISWEET (Xtina Stan) April 15, 2012

    Damn she’s really good!!! Color me shocked!

  15. Nats April 15, 2012

    *yawn* hey at least I got the chores done while listening to this.

  16. D.Strock April 15, 2012

    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.

  17. Army Of Queen Aaliyah April 15, 2012

    Banks >>>>> Minaj Live, Rapping, Music ๐Ÿ™‚ #deal ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. KAT DELUNA FAN April 15, 2012

    Another wig colored wig wearing b****

    I saw the whole set and B**** killed it.Nicki could never,nicki cant even spend 1 min on stage,rapping alone without SB ..a shame.
    I liked her personnaly in regard to her confidence,and I am proud she is talented.

  19. Roberto April 15, 2012

    I couldnt even get through the first song, the saying N**** every 4th of a second , and to a crowd of white folks, is beyond annoying

  20. Os April 15, 2012

    โ™› POP ROYALTY โ™› ( WHERE HAVE RUDE BOY BEEN) dog sh-t why so angry,jocker voice why so serious,

  21. Diane April 15, 2012

    Authentic with her own style. Now, tnis is how you take hip hop to another level; not by repeating what everyone else did. Good job!

  22. Justathought (Azealia Banks is here…) April 15, 2012

    Uh huh…#Boom. Go Ms Banks

  23. Lax April 15, 2012

    Hmmmmm while i am always happy to see newbie coming to the fore front
    i wonder who is putting who out to pasture with these rappers????????????

  24. Well… April 15, 2012

    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.

  33. haterzstaypressed April 15, 2012

    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.

  34. nickiminaj April 15, 2012

    dis h** is ugly cant rap or dress whos checkin an lookin for her

  35. Tiffany April 15, 2012

    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.

  36. April 15, 2012

    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.

  37. HALF AMAZIN April 15, 2012

    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!

  38. Lana Bell April 16, 2012

    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!

  39. Auntie_Jackie April 17, 2012

    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.
