When she isn't jeopardizing her hype with endless Twitter wars, Azealia Banks is pretty good at living up to it with actual talent. Here's the "212" rapper's latest for the upcoming Fantastic mixtape, "Jumanji," a high energy drum-and-steel-pan summer jam with production from Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook. The catchy track shows off Banks' spitting skills and savvy for what's increasingly looking like inevitable mainstream success (shades of "Big Pimpin" going on). Plus there's that sweet elephant prom date graphic.
Still to come this year: the 1991 EP, her major label debut Broke With Expensive Taste, and a track with MIA, Missy Elliot and Rye Rye. Watch out Banks: heading into too big to fail territory.
