Subversive Azealia Banks House Rap
Originally from Harlem, NY, this very talented (and classically trained) performer, Azealia Banks, has made it big in the UK. Her single “212″ has earned more than 1 million hits on youtube in the UK, and is currently in the 600,000′s in the US. “212″ is a rap over a house beat by Lazy Jay called “Float My Boat”.
Her rapping is excellent and versatile, and she even sings a few well executed bars in the middle of the song!
These two artists’ distinctiveness create a great track, and I think the crossover is a great look for electronic music.
And now the House beat behind it all.
