Azealia Banks Heads to Hawaii to Work with Kanye West

Azealia Banks and Kanye West

Azealia Banks is going from the 212 to the 808. The Harlem rapper has been summoned to Hawaii to work with none other than Kanye West.

She was on vacation when she got the call. “When Kanye West Calls……. You Go To Honolulu,” she tweeted.

It’s unclear what exactly the two are working on, but Kanye is reportedly in Hawaii putting the finishing touches on the G.O.O.D. Music compilation Cruel Summer, due September 18.

Banks admitted that she was “really nervous” about working with the G.O.O.D. Music chief, but was thankful for the opportunity. “The past seven days have really been epic,” she said. “Wow, i get to travel and see the world and rub shoulders with all these really talented people and do all kinds of cool shit. this is funn.”

Kanye co-signed Banks early in her career and there were rumors that he wanted to sign her to G.O.O.D. Music before she eventually inked a deal with Interscope Records.

West is not the only superstar she’s encountered this week. The “Liquorice” rapper got a call from Lady Gaga, whose manager used to oversee Banks’ career. “When Mother Monster calls,” she wrote. “Shit is about to get very fu**ing real.”

The pop queen even conversed with her on Twitter. Could a collaboration be next?

    @California Dreamer, Why can’t they be out at the same time like Kim & foxy were and also like Missy & Eve were? Although the latter were a lot more mature then the former I might add.

    All this bitches songs sound the same. Same structure, same raps, same singing interludes………..boring. But whatever, she’s doing well for herself, but she needs to add a bit more shit to the mix if she ever wants to come for Nicki. These hoes careers aint promising…

    I would have never guessed she was one of the 4 being added. Great for her, i love her music. I think the 4 artist being add are
    Mos Def(confirmed)
    Azealia Banks(confirmed)
    A$AP Rocky
    & Earl Sweatshirt.

    @Miles, She is already signed

    [Reply]

    Miles Reply:

    @Mike, SHe’s not signed to good music. I’m saying she is confirmed as one of the 4 features.
    The reason why Cruel SUmmer was pushed back is because they said they wanted to add 4 more featuring artist.

  27. coMEaTmEbRO

    I kinda think she should have been the 1st lady of GOOD Music.

    [Reply]

    Realist Reply:

    @coMEaTmEbRO, Exactly. Just axe Teyana Taylor. She puts out one project every five years. A collaboration with Kanye/G.O.O.D. music will be really dope for Azealia; that’s one of the reasons Nicki Minaj blew up (e.g. “Monster”). Things are about to get serious.

  28. Meme

    Kinda reminds me when Kanye helped jump start Nicki’s career with the ‘Monster’ verse.. we’ll see.

    [Reply]

    Tbozfan10 Reply:

    @Meme, To be honest that really didbt jumpstart her career she had been on everybody else’s track before that and she had mad hype and her album was gonna drop the next month already. Monster just added to the hype but definately didn’t jumpstart her career at all.

    I believe The GOOD Music-Cruel Summer Album is going to be the best hip hop album of the year, and arguably the best album of the year. Kanye West has always been a great music artist and a great producer, so Kanye West is going to bring out the best in every music artist he works with. I could be wrong, but the way it looks right now, The GOOD Music-Cruel Summer album is going to have everyone. We already know that Kanye West, Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Common, Big Sean, John Legend, Q-Tip, Cyhi Da Prince, Teyana Taylor, Mr. Hudson, D’baji, Hit-Boy, 2 Chainz, Mannie Fresh, Mos Def, Frank Ocean, Marsha Ambrosius, and Don Jazzy are going to be on GOOD Music-Cruel Summer Album. Now it is a rumor and a chance that we could get possibly Jay-Z, ASAP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Electronica, and Azealia Banks on this album as well. This album could turn out to be a great classic album.

    @TRA, i dont think they should have to many features outside of the GOOD music family besides the ones you named, like Marsha Ambrosius, Mannie Fresh &Jay electronica. i doubt Jay z will be on this but that would be great if he was though

    @TRA, If there are that many features I wonder how they plan to showcase the g.o.o.d. Music artists just sayin.
