Azealia Banks Blazes the Stage at Hackney Weekend

Azealia Banks

Wearing a black leather jumper and combat boots, Azealia Banks stormed the stage on Day 2 of Hackney Weekend in London. “This is the one that started it all,” said the Harlem rapper as she launched into an expletive-laden performance of her single “212,” which comes with its own disclaimer. She had the crowd singing along as she rocked the mic and her dancers worked the stage at a feverish pace.

    @Curt, She is so freakin ugly!! And she cant even rap that well. She reminds me of a broke down Foxy Brown. She will never make it in this game. Stop trying.

    Grow Up Reply:

    @KimComingBack, LOL You Kim stans are so delusional. Kim is done. Let it go. I love Kim for what she brought to the game, but it’s over. Time to move on. You’re missing out on good music by ignoring Banks just because her and Kim had petty BS beef. You don’t even know either of these girls personally, so why are you going so hard either way. That is a sign of psychosis. Anyway, your loss. You’ll be waiting on that Kim album forever while this girl continues to make hits.

    @MinajRules2012, This ugly chick that can’t rap well is being called beautiful on many sites. Unlike Nicki. People are calling her ass beautiful. Mad? Azealia doesn’t even have a label but she has the crowd CRUNK. Unlike Nicki. She had very little of the crowd bopping their hands. Mad? Azealia wasn’t the one being dragged by her hometown for being a sellout. Unlike Nicki. Mad? Understandable.

    This is the kind of music that is played and recognised in the UK the most from the beat to the flow of it it’s kind of like the old skool garage that’s why it’s loved so much in the UK.

    Dear Haters, what are you contributing to the world?
    My niece puts the “O” in original. I’m proud that she stepped out there and put her talent to metal. If anything she admired Lil Kim… Beware she’s only 21…

    [Reply]

  25. Isabel 1

    1. if Azealia has an attitude, what about every male rapper in the universe? Check your sexism. Expressing an unpopular opinion does not a bad attitude make.

    2. This girl is the real deal. Her talent is off the chain. Her flow and wordplay and originality is off the chain. Her charisma is off the chain. She is the anti-fake. Plus she can sing her liquorice butt off.

    3. She is on her way to being HUGE. Did you see how she rocked that show? Did you see how hyped the crowd was? She’s 21. Shit is insane.

    4. She is beautiful. Last I checked, cat eyes, flawless skin, and lips that put Angelina Jolie’s to shame…made for quite a beauty.

    5. Nicki Minaj fans are scurrrrrrrrred. Them roaches are tossing and turning in their sleep.

    Damn the Haters are pressed. Azealia Banks has that “It” factor to make it really big in music and nobody can say different. Her 212 video on youtube has over 21 Million views now thats crazy haters can go choke on that.

    Well. Azealia is dark skinned. And beautiful. And talented. And that whoooole crowd loved her and her lyrics. She’s about to be the new QUEEN. And the Nicki stans can’t stand it.. And the Kim stans can’t stand it. Lmfao. They’re mad because she didn’t have to bleach her skin or get a nose job to make it. Welp. This is what you call raw talent and raw beauty. Azealia. We salute you! Your fans got your back. PLEASE.. Don’t mind the haters. We’re forever down and ready for your takeover cunt! Love you!

    lol @ the people saying she has a bad attitude..how does she have a bad attitude?? for going off on people that come at her neck first..male rappers offend who ever they please but soon as chick comes out not taking shyt from nobody the world stops…shut up, at the end of the day this chick is highly talented if we can let kanye, 50 cent, lil wayne and the rest of them be as aggressive as they want why not her??

    oh and she rocked the shyt out of this crowd

    [Reply]

  35. Tiana

    Any black person, especially FEMALE, that tries to bring her down is a fucking moron. She is finally garnering us respect and recognition as a BLACK woman and she didn’t bleach her skin, get a nose job. She’s being herself, a reflection of you. So you better fucking celebrate her.

    Hey fellow Azealia fans just giving a heads up regarding the release date of the Fantasea mix-tape,I just visited her Twitter page and the mixtape now will released on July 11th instead of the 4th,but good news is on June 30th will get the song Nathan featuring Styles P for sure and hopefully the album cover and tracklisting! This is her first time doing a push back and so far she has been true to her word regarding her release dates unlike Iggy Azalea who has had now 4 different release dates for Glory which still isn’t out yet!
