Fashion darling Azealia Banks works the camera in the video for “Fierce,” which was released as part of the ASOS #BestNightEver holiday campaign. The purple-haired raptress sprawls across a couch and holds a rose while rocking a fur coat in the stylish clip for her Fantasea mixtape cut.
“Back at it again, my only bad habit my addiction to win/ She only mad at it, did it better than her friend,” raps Yung Rapunxel, who is also readying a video for “Atlantis.”
Azealia Banks keeps pumping out the videos. After releasing visuals for “Luxury,” “Van Vogue,” and “1991,” Harlem’s hip-hop dynamo gears up for the release of “Atlantis,” a cut off her mixtape Fantasea. The 21-year-old rocks turquiose mermaid hair under a hat in the first still from the psychedelic shoot, directed by The Fafster.
Yung Rapunxel recently confirmed that she has collaborated with Lady Gaga and Kanye West. Her debut album Broke with Expensive Taste is due in February on Interscope Records.
Hip-hop’s glam girl Azealia Banks is bringing the holiday cheer. The “212″ rapper, along with singer Ellie Goulding and model Charlotte Free, are the new faces of ASOS’ #bestnightever holiday campaign.
A smiling Azealia rocks a bejeweled bralette in one photo and skin-tight reptile leggings in the video teaser, which asks, “Are you ready?”
The Harlemite is no stranger to fashion, having performed at high-profile events for Karl Lagerfeld, Prada, Chanel, and Kanye West. She also stars in the fall campaign for T by Alexander Wang.
Azealia Banks is in an Empire State of mind in the slick black-and-white video for “Luxury,” the first visual from her mixtape Fantasea. The Harlem firecracker rocks a cowboy hat and suspenders as she parades around the gritty streets of her hometown in the Clarence Fuller-directed clip.
Meanwhile, her single for “Esta Noche” has caused quite a bit of controversy. Producer Munchi has stopped the song from being released to iTunes, claiming that Banks took his beat without permission. She later offered him $25,000 and a public apology, which he declined.
“good luck being a dickriding, trackstealing, sorry excuse for a artist,” he tweeted. Have fun with the fame – it’ll get back at ya.”
She will go in front of the lens today to shoot a video for “Atlantis,” also off her mixtape.
Azealia Banks turns heads with the cover of her new single “Esta Noche.” The Harlem firecracker whips her strawberry hair around on the vibrant artwork. The song, which samples Montell Jordan’s 1999 single “Get It On Tonite,” will be available for purchase on iTunes tomorrow (listen below). A video has been shot for the Munchi-assisted track, which also appears on her mixtape Fantasea.
Azealia Banks made a new friend when she traveled to Milan for Fashion Week. The Harlem rapper bonded with Solange at the Just Cavalli show on Friday. The fashion darlings shared a laugh in the front row while watching the models strut down the runway. After congratulating the designer on his latest collection, Banks entertained guests at the Just Cavalli store opening.
“my girl @solangeknowles’s fro be SHININ’ !!” tweeted Azealia, who plans to release a video for “Esta Noche,” the Montell Jordan-sampled cut off her mixtape Fantasea.

Kreayshawn just wants everyone to get along. In Part 2 of our exclusive interview, the “Gucci Gucci” rapper calls for unity amongst her fellow females in the hip-hop community.
“The more we band together, we won’t be looked at as a rarity in hip-hop,” said the Bay Area native, whose debut album Somethin ‘Bout Kreay arrives Tuesday.
She’s already plotting a collaboration with Azealia Banks, who apologized for lashing out at her on Twitter. “It’s gonna have her crazy swag on it and it’s gonna have my swag on it,” said Kreay of their yet-to-be-recorded collabo. “It’s probably gonna be something that has to do with the ’90s since we’re both in love with ’90s style.”
Kreayshawn will hit the road with Rye Rye, Honey Cocaine, and Chippy Nonstop on her “Group Hug” tour this November. “I definitely wanted to do something for the girls and I think there’s so many females in the music game that we all kinda get separated from each other and it makes it seem like we’re less of an entity.”
But despite her positive message, not everyone is rooting for her. “A lot of people who hate on me are those weirdo bloggers who write extensive blogs about all this fake shit they made up, so I usually don’t read blogs,” she explained. “When people say stuff like, ‘You suck,’ I just be like, ‘You suck.’”
When she’s not in the studio, Kreayshawn is writing a book and planning for her future, which includes buying stock and saving for her kids’ college education. “I want to save money for my future so I can [have a] cushiony lifestyle.”
