Must See: Azealia Banks Storms ‘Rock Werchter’ With Sizzling Set

While some Female MCs will avoid live performances at any cost, Azealia Banks has made live gigs the bread and butter of her artistry, headlining many a summer Festival in preparation for her ‘Broke With Expensive Taste‘ debut.

Sure, while these performances do nothing to explain the confusion that surrounds the album’s roll out, they do give the world no choice but to accept that she stands as one of the best performers to grace her scene, putting even her most celebrated of rivals to shame.

Now watch her prove that point below, via footage lifted from her recent set at ‘Rock Werchter’!

See what we mean?

On the topic of ‘Taste’, we’re still puzzled as to why ‘Luxury‘ wasn’t pushed in the UK following ‘212’s run in the nation.

For, as difficult as this may be to admit, nabbing a #1 in the market isn’t all that difficult if armed with enough support from radio.

A fact, that has seen many a ‘randomer’ top the chart only to fade into irrelevance a week later.

With this in mind, there’s no reason an act as celebrated as Azealia could score a few British #1s before ‘Broke‘s release, building momentum for an album that needs to fare moderately well, as to avoid her being billed a one hit wonder.

  2. devalley August 6, 2013

    she slays when she performs but what is up with the hideous costumes she wears.

  3. MR. BREAUX August 6, 2013

    Awesome performance, even tho she got a lil nip slip at 4:22 lol

    • MDNA2013 August 6, 2013

      Inspired by Queen Janet i see.

  4. rihking August 6, 2013

    It was pretty dope however she needs to burn whatever the f*** she’s wearing.It looks ugly as hell.

    • Lana Del Slay August 6, 2013

      How can you talk about fashion when Rihanna looked like a damn christmas turkey at the carnival. Spreading her p**** in the air like the s*** she is.

      • rihking ( I f*cked your mother) August 6, 2013

        Its called HAVING FUN 🙂 something your flop alcoholic fave knows nothing about cuz she stays drinking and bitching about how her music is unappreciated with her depressed alcoholic ass. Anyways glad to see you finding out facts about my fave before an actual fan (me ) does.

  5. ATM JAM August 6, 2013

    Yaaaaaassss You better serve!

  6. Damo August 6, 2013

    I Love her, she’s amazing and the reason why Luxury was not released as a follow up is becuase Azealia was not signed when 212 came out, 212 was put out with a DJ, and as much as you may think its easy to get a number it is not! You need mainstream label backing, her first offical release with a major label is Young Rupenxel

    • MarinasDiamonds August 6, 2013

      But she was signed when she put out Luxury.

    • ATM JAM August 6, 2013

      *Yung Rapunxel

  7. ATM JAM August 6, 2013

    You can tell that she was still recovering from a vocal infection, because usually when she performs the scream part of Yung Rapunxel the scream is usually more prominent, but she Slayed this performance even after being sick. Love this woman!

    • SummertimeSadness August 6, 2013

      Too much blowing is bad for the throat.

      • ATM JAM August 6, 2013

        Is that why A*** Del Taco sounds like she swallowed gallons of sticky s**** and now her cords are taking the toll of it? Try again b**** your Fav has NO VOCAL Ability. Sad because my Fav is a rapper and she can out perform A*** at any given moment, sick or well.

      • SummertimeSadness August 6, 2013

        Oh sweetie, don’t be such a delusional b****. Lana is slaying Azealia mercilessly on the charts and you just can’t take it. Where are any of Azuzu’s songs on the charts. Hiding like her edges?

      • Rosie August 6, 2013

        LMAO @ A*** Jam still trying to come for Lana with those tired drags. Lixard will never chart, deal.

      • ATM JAM August 6, 2013

        lana’s career will be playing hide & seek with lil kims when lady gaga releases her new single (most of lana’s fanbase consist of Band wagon f*** & bored little monsters) so bragging when lana has NO platinum single ANYWHERE is a drag within itself. come back at me when summertime depression has the impact that 212 had on Europe.

  8. Your fave is a FLOP August 6, 2013

    That outfit…… not a big fan of Azalea but the song sounded great. Song name?

    • Your fave is a FLOP August 6, 2013

      the first song name.

      • Jean Jean August 6, 2013

        esta noche

  9. Queen Brit Brit August 6, 2013

    LOLOLOLOL!!! Flopzealia will NEVER have a #1 in the U.K or anywhere else for that matter. This redundant b**** peaked with 212 and is on her way to taking her place next to Kreayflop and Remy Ma on the list of b****** who almost happened. And I can’t with her stage outfits lmao!! Interscope must’ve cut her funding, poor thing 🙁

  10. Daniel Teflon August 6, 2013

    I like her sound & she’s a lot Better then some of the Wack ass so called raptresses out these days~Tricki Garbagh?…

    • Your fave is a FLOP August 6, 2013

      Nicki’s more successful and is doing things Azealia isnt. Give credit when its due.

    • Fierce & All August 6, 2013

      Let’s see where Nicki where be in 5 years….already flopping on her 2nd album and she’s a queen?? Pff. Gimme a break.

      • holding briks August 6, 2013

        Like someone else said, guess you can’t read. NICKI is doing really fine now. She could be dead in 5 years. Gotta live for now. Most female rappers have short lifespans in the rap game anyway. Guess that’s why she is expanding her brand.

        Azelia still hasn’t really even started yet while you talking so much s*** about the future.

      • Your fave is a FLOP August 6, 2013

        She’s doing better than Azealia point blank period. Her album is Platinum so lets just not. Where is Azealia’s fragrance, clothing line, makeup, etc? Stop hyping A. Banks up because Nicki is only a couple years in the game and is still doing what no female rappers have never done.

      • Fierce & all August 6, 2013

        Umm she’s a flop. Point blank period….

      • Your fave is a FLOP August 7, 2013

        Dont make Azealia stans look bad with your stubborness. Nicki is successful, no matter how much you dislike her and downplay her, the facts are right there.

    • ATM JAM August 6, 2013

      can you not bring negativity to Azealia’s post? thank you
