Azealia Banks Opens Up For ‘Hunger’

Published: Sunday 28th Oct 2012 by David

In all honesty, as talented as many of the year’s newbies are, Azealia Banks is one of the only acts this year with material strong enough to live up to her buzz.

The only ‘new’ Female Rapper to have her music become just as celebrated as her look and personality, next year marks the release of her debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’, arriving courtesy of Jimmy Iovine‘s Interscope.

So, before the project’s launch, Banks sat down with the folk over at Hunger TV this summer  for an eye opening interview on her childhood, education, creativity and standing in the industry.

Get into the recently released footage below…

    That lipstick pattern thingy is NOT the business girl. Anyways, I completely agree that she is only female rapper in a while with material that lives up to her buzz. I am looking forward to her debut album, hopefully it has similar strong material that was on her mix-tapes.

    • Trev October 28, 2012

      i find it interesting how similar her story is to Nicki’s…I hope she makes it…she’s def the biggest female rapper of the new girls…hopefully the success of Nicki will keep her career going…even though she praises Nic one day, and throw shade the next, I see she’s not being Idle…at least she’s following Nicki’s example…doing more than just music and becoming well-rounded…and also not listening to the haters that are going to call her a sellout for doing dance music…Queen Latifah was the first mogul but she stopped rapping long before then…Nicki is gonna be the first to do it while still being a rapper…hopefully Banks can do it too

    • DemiQueenVato October 28, 2012

    • toohotfortv October 28, 2012

  3. DOSSOME October 28, 2012

  4. AzealiaBankable October 28, 2012

    YAY! Stan for the Queen TGJ!!! Love this b**** but tired of her saying ‘like’ every two seconds.

  5. mello October 28, 2012

  6. MinajMonstah October 28, 2012

    Didn’t like her until now.

    • RihNaj Dior October 28, 2012

      LOOOOL this interview cracked me up i love her ghetto ways “like uno” ahaha

  7. Viciousss October 28, 2012

    Good luck to her, I hope by her album launch she finds a style that really suits her. Sometimes it feels like her team is throwing everything at the wall and seeing what sticks visually.

    Ala that ‘Do it like a dude Jessie J look above but they should have kept the rhinestones because those little black circles…not the business.

    • FAF October 28, 2012

      She said “like..” about 40 thousand times.. -_-

      and her buzz is dead

      • ImMadAsHell October 28, 2012

        Like Nicki PFRR is dead, oh that’s right she’s re releasing it again to stay alive.

  8. NOBITCHASSNESS October 28, 2012

    SHE SPOKE THE TRUTH AND SHE DEF LIVES UP TO THE HYPE – IT’S ALL IN HER MUSIC.

    AZEALIA BANKS IS BEYOND KILLING IT RIGHT NOW. AND THAT’S COMING FROM A NICKI MINAJ FAN.

    • MrsBrunoMars October 28, 2012

      Oh yes, we can all agree on that. She’s a hardworker and is going to do well because of it. Iggy Azawannaberatchetlea needs to take notes.

  9. OVOXOXO October 28, 2012

    Thanks for posting this Sam, I really like her.

  10. Britbutnotproud October 28, 2012

    What about angel haze isn’t she killing it right now?

    • millhouse October 28, 2012

      HELL NO,,, ANGEL HAZE LOOKS LIKE AN ANGEL D***… and her rap skills are average. Azealia is unique…. Angel brings nothing new or fresh to the table…

      • FAF October 28, 2012

        DEAD

  11. the real xoxo October 28, 2012

    Im excited for her album. shes got 2 songs with gaga and has been in the studio with Kanye, thats impressive for a 21 year old girl who just debuted a year ago.

  12. LJ October 28, 2012

    SEEMS TO HAVE ALOT MORE DEPTH THAN NICKI. ITS LIKE IF YOU TAKE THE WIG OFF OF NICKI WHO IS SHE? CAUSE SHES SO CAUGHT UP IN PLAYING THIS BARBIE CHARACTER. EVERYONE CANT RELATE TO THAT, AND ITS NOT GENUINE. ITS JUST A MONEY MACHINE. SHE BETTER WAKE UP….

    • FAF October 28, 2012

      • SHARON October 28, 2012
