New Music: Azealia Banks – ‘Jumanji’

Jumanji

Azealia Banks goes bananas on “Jumanji,” the first single from her upcoming mixtape Fantastic, dropping this summer. The 20-year-old rapper spits over steel drums on the Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook-produced beat. “Real bitch all day, uptown, Broadway,” she raps over the calypso rhythm, which borrows its title from the 1995 movie starring Robin Williams.

In addition to a mixtape, Banks is readying her 1991 EP and full-length debut Broke With Expensive Taste, due this fall on Interscope Records.

    @BabyBump, So the tide has turned huh? When Kim fans thought Azealia was gearing up to snatch Nicki’s wig she was the dopest thing out, but now she’s a bum and trash. Ain’t nothing wrong with being a bum trust me all your favs were once too either in the game or before the game so chill.

    @JJ, Kim fans didn’t like Azealia because she dissed Nicki, they liked her because they thought she was a fan of Kim’s. she was throwing shots at nicki before she admitted her “love” for Kim and #TeamKim wasn’t fuckin with her then so you chill, because you don’t even know what your talking about.

    @georgia23, bitch shut up. you’re mentioning nicki shade someone to justify someone thats beefed with with 3-4 female rappers with not much as a single in the US charts, mixtape, EP or album ou.

    @Lola, Feisty aren’t we? lol People are a trip… When she was asked if she’s heard of Iggy or Banks she was very cold and said that she hadn’t heard of anybody by those names. MY thing is, as an artist, you should always be checking for somebody new. This way, you can surprise people by snatching them up and getting the potential winners on your team. What I don’t like is, Nicki seems to forget that not too long ago she was a rapper with a dream and she was waiting on someone to give her a shot. So I know you got your clout now, but cut the chicks some slack. So get up with these chicks. I understand you’re on your business swag but get some FRIENDS. Say what you will, in the industry, you need allies on your squad. NOT PEOPLE FIGHTING YOUR BATTLES, but you need someone to at least be able to atest to your status. Nicki is WINNING right now with endorsements and hit records… But people also need to like you. Personally, I love Nicki’s drive and her ambition and I see her going far in the game IF she focuses her energies. So fall back, I am allowed to state my opinion freely without being called a “b*tch”. As for Azealia (who this post is actually about) she does need to cool it with all the twitter jabs and crap, cause in this game, it matters not how talented you are. If you ruffle enough feathers, you’ll be as dead to the game as Milli Vanilli. *drops mic*

    How the fck y’all let some beef stop y’all from realizing talent.. Got to be some of the most basic minded idiots.. This shyt goes hard, denying the fact that this girl can SPIT will not make her any less hot. I’m impressed and fully interested with what this girl has to offer now.

    DOPE!! ABanks is that bitch, her flow is crazy! Ya’ll need to stop focusing on these little stan wars and beefs, and focus on what really matters the music! This girl is talented female rapper period. I can understand your distaste for her as a person for all the drama around her but dont let that keep you from good music. A dope song is a dope song is a dope song, no matter who made it.

    Nicki didn’t do NOTHING for female rappers, the ones on the come up or the veterans. She just got the public interested in hearing someone other than her. Nicki didn’t put NOBODY on, but Sophia and Grace.

    [Reply]

    DRAGHOES Reply:

    @Sassy, *yawn* she broke every female rap record there is & shouted every female MC out while she was coming up. Nicki put these rap bitches back on the map again, belee dat. If Nicki wasn’t here, Kim wouldn’t have put out anything.
