Azealia Banks Added to Hot 97 Summer Jam Lineup

Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks is headed back to the 212. The Harlem rapper has been added to the star-studded lineup for Hot 97’s Summer Jam next month.

Banks will heat up the Festival Village stage before the big show on June 3 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. She will be joined by A$AP Rocky, Pusha T, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, Big K.R.I.T., and Fred the Godson.

The 20-year-old MC shared her excitement on Twitter. “Omg still can’t believe I’m doing summer jam. That shit is so honorary #NEWYOOOOOORRRRRRRKK,” she wrote. “I grew up on @Hot97.”

The main stage will feature performances from Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, J. Cole, Big Sean, Waka Flocka Flame, 2 Chainz, Young Jeezy, Trey Songz, and more.

Banks, who is readying her 1991 EP and Interscope Records debut Broke With Expensive Taste, will also perform for her more fashionable fans at the Costume Institute gala on May 7. She will attend as a guest of designer Alexander Wang, who designed her dress.

    @MinajRules2012,
    can best believe I ride or DIE for Nicki but you bein real hateful and extra bitch. You just make her look bad by trolling around and representing youself with her name. How old are you? ten? twelve? regardless, by taking the time to hate on her you only make her more popular. And besides, she makes good music. Personally, I think her singing outshines her raps but hey, it is what it is. She’s got a unique style.

    @SHAWTY, Yes a guest but guess who dropped out and got picked as a back up performer ?

    jazz Reply:

    @SHAWTY, ok “SHAWTY,” your comment is ignorant on SO many levels but I’ll only address one. Part of the reason why Azealia Banks has attracted so much attention is because of Nicki Minaj. Honestly, had Nicki not broken the decade-long hiatus of female rap, Azealia’s song “212″ wouldn’t have even made a splash (there’s no water in a drought). And if it did she wouldn’t have been offered the new managerial offer or any of her photoshoots. Like it or not, Nicki has revitalized female rap and demonstrated that female rappers can be much more than a one hit wonder *cough Rasheeda* post-90s. Further, neither Iggy nor Lola would have NEVER gotten their deals had T.I and Wiz Khalifa never seen the phenomenom that is Nicki. Now, I’ve wasted two minutes of my life on your stupod ass, happy?

    so she was supposed to perform at a festival in London called Lovebox next month, her team cancelled because ”she needs to focus on recording her album” and now she’s performing in the US??? that’s bullshit, not respecting your European fans is not a good look.

    THIS CONCERT IS NOT BASED AROUND NICKI MINAJ! THEY NEVER DID IT FOR JAYZ, KANYE, EMINEM, NOT EVEN BIGGIE BACK IN THE 90′s…. SO JUST STOP IT. THE HIP HOO COMMUNITY DON’T RESPECT THIS HOE.

    CONGRATS TO AZEALIA… SHE DONE PERFORMED FOR SO MANY HIGH FASHION DESIGNERS, SHIT THAT NICKI FAT ASS CAN’T EVEN FIT. KARL LAGERFELD, ALEXANDER WANG, PRADA….. SHE GETTING RESPECT FROM HIP HOP & THE WHITE FASHION CROWD! I SEE MORE LONGEVITY FROM THIS GIRL. ITS JUST TALENT AND NO GIMMICKS.

    Lost any type of respect for this Ashley Banks or w.e her name is. She did an interview saying she wanted to do everything Nicki did she wanted to call herself “barbie” and do faces and voices. But she got tight when Nicki started doing it. NOW she talks shit about Nicki copying this & that. Bitch you mad cuz the Queen stay ahead of ya’ll 40oz beer guzzling gargle cum ass hoes.

    I really dislike Nicki stans. Delusional and ignorant. Why does everything have to be a competition? Why cant You lot like someone just based on the MUSIC. why do u guys have to attack all the time. You guys are brain dead. You should try thinking for ur self and behave like human beings.

    Stop attacking everyones else hustle and look at ur homegirl. Remind me where the GREAT QUEEN OF THE BARBS is touring??? Oh yeah, THEATRES! She’s that amazing she cant even out sell Pink friday in first week sales.

    I dont even care for Azealia Banks.

    Nicki Fans,Please think for your self and stop this madness. Ur fanbase is looking very ugly right now.

    Any post highlighting a female rapper other than Nicki Minaj will be full of anti-thatfemalerapper because the barbs are easily intimidated. And regular lovers of music are just tired of her. This girl, Banks, will go farther than Nicki – because she’s doing hip-hop AND pop effortlessly.

Are you certain concerning the supply?|What i don’t realize is in reality how you are not really a lot more neatly-appreciated than you may be now. You are so intelligent.
