Azealia Banks Brings ‘212’ To Hackney Weekend

Published: Sunday 24th Jun 2012 by Sam

Azealia Banks may have only buzzed onto the mainstream scene this year, yet that hasn’t stopped the Harlem femcee from commanding a global fanbase.

Case, point, her set at BBC Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend today – which included a pulsating performance of the track “that started it all” ‘212’.

Watch Ms. Banks bring the house down after the jump…


Raw, gritty, and believable, it’s clear whatever Ms. Banks is selling, the masses are buying and eating it all the way up. The crowd were off the Richter!

She’ll no doubt be hoping her album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ generates a similar response when it arrives in September.

Your thoughts?

    She got her weave somewhat together. Baby steps. Now about that attitude…

      Her attitude is what makes her so lovely. She’s herself and she takes no s*** for it. Of course, maybe you’d rather a censored artist… a sellout.

    She SLAYED the stage!!

    She’s a very good performer and 212 is perfect for live rendition cus of the several chants on it. Audience can easily get involved. Dunno what the hell her dancers were doing tho lol

    Damn that crowd was going crazy!!! Damn when azealia banks reach a more mainstream crowd like being on 106andpark & playing her music on power 99.

    Nicki may just have to step up a little bit
