Azealia Banks Unleashes ‘Yung Rapunxel’ on First Single

Azealia Banks

“Miss Amor” is no more. Azealia Banks has decided to go in a different direction with the first single from her highly-anticipated debut.

Despite previous plans to release “Miss Amor” and the B-Side “Miss Camaraderie,” the Harlem rapper has announced that “Yung Rapunxel” will serve as the lead single off her Interscope debut Broke With Expensive Taste.

The song, produced by Lil Internet, will be released on February 12.

“BIG CHANGE OF PLANS,” tweeted Azealia. “My first single is actually not going 2 be Miss Amor / Miss Camaraderie. It’s goin 2 be a song called ‘YUNG RAPUNXEL’ prod. By @LILINTERNET.”

The album, due later this year, follows her 2012 mixtape Fantasea and EP 1991, which spawned the hit single “212.”

    @zee zee, the real tension is because Nicki is whack, a total hype job and Azealia’s actually great at rapping and singing; so Nicki’s fans are terrified of Nicki being dethroned by an authentic superstar. If this wasn’t the case there’d be no tension.

    I’m waiting for her to apologize to Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj.

    DDdakid Reply:

    @fasdfas, I dont think she owes an apology to Nicki Minaj because Nicki was trying to talk down to her and insult her and Azealia responded. But I do think an apology to Lil Kim would be great since Kim never really disrespected Azealia. But we all know Ms. Banks wont be doing that lol.

    @DDdakid, Actually you’re wrong. Azealia Banks lied about Nicki wanting her to tour on twitter. Nicki just tweeted a lyric from her song ”Come on a Cone” and Azealia Banks thought it was to her.

    everyone knows sicki got no originality. thats why theres no secret she even jacked kim lines too.

    “man this bitches have gone delirious, this hoe can’t be serious”

    A.K.47 Reply:

    @azebracuntnaj, That’s why Azealia blatantly took Nicki’s flow from Kill the DJ and used it in Liquorice. So where you going with originality. Nothing in this world is original anymore, everything has been inspired by something that come before and has been that was since long before we were born!

    Produced by Lil Internet? That just sounds cheap. I hope I’m wrong though.

    @Ice, already you are pre judging and aint even heard the track just cause of the producer’s name. I tell ya u kids are something else.

    @Real Hip Hop, Calm down, I’m just skeptical about random producers with no credibility. You have to admit the name sounds stupid.

    @Ice, That’s how Madonna made her name. Using relatively unknown producers.

    [Reply]

    Truthis Reply:

    @Ice, but the producers with credibility are the ones that everyone is going to… azealia banks has a different sound, so why would she go to a over-used producer and sound like everyone else smh that’s whats wrong with music today people are so critical and can’t just acknowledge good music, its not your place as a fan to critique an artist, the lack of support behind bad music should be an artist hint to do something different, i wish people stop telling artist what they need to do when you don’t even know what you could do to be in their place

    @SLAYZEALIA BANK$, False. Nicki and her fans don’t hate other female rappers. You forgot about that Nicki is actually friends with some female rappers. Ex. Trina & Iggy Azalea. Iggy is a new comer and Nicki said she likes her music. Don’t just jump on the wagon as if you know everything.

    I have a feeling this year is going to be Azealia’s year and honestly im ready for a new female rapper to have success!!! Azealia has possible collaborations with big named artists like Kanye West, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga. She’s on the rise it’s no denying that. kinda reminds me of the same way Nicki was on everybody’s joint when she was trying to make her mark. Its okay to embrace another female. GO AZEALIA!!!

    [Reply]

    Oh Reply:

    @Yung Rapunxel, It is OKAY, but its always the FANS who have to pit them against eachother….. Nicki WANTS COMPETITION, She’s been LITERALLY BEGGING for ANY BITCH to come out!
    Check It Out -”Competiton why yes I would love some”
    Come on A Cone- “In the Middle Of Nowhere I just feel so alone”
    Go Hard- ” I AM,I will, I got’s to WIN, I’m STILL looking around for my competition”

    To tell ya’ll the truth Azealia Banks is the only female rapper ive been routing for and music I follow(and im a black girl). 1991 and Fantasea slays its original, catchy, and the bitch can rap. I’m hoping on the album her lyrics has more range. Im defiantly buying her album.

    @LovableBunny, Trina is a veteran and has had success its not like she’s coming for Nicki’s spot she’s had Nicki’s spot, and Iggy is in Nicki’s lane cruising a few cars behind her so Nicki’s not worried about Iggy surpassing her… but Azealia on the other hand is making her name known creating her own lane and making moves so of course that should make Nicki’s fans nervous but i’m sure Nicki isn’t worried about it because she’s making moves too i wish people would recognize that there can be more than one successful female rapper at a time
