If you haven’t listened to shit-kicking 19-year-old Harlemite Azealia Banks yet, considering these two tracks your introduction. She’s been catching a healthy buzz lately off the strength of her new single, “212,” that’s as crass and bangin’ as they come. It also features an uncleared sample so its video has since been removed from both Vimeo and YouTube. Lame.
Perhaps looking to make up for that, Banks just tweeted download links to “Barbie Shit,” which is from 2009, and a Machinedrum remix of “P-U-S-S-Y.” Both tunes are just as riotous and rambunctious as “212,” if not more so. Oh, and she wanted to make it clear that “Barbie Shit” is not a diss to Nicki Minaj. Per Banks’ Twitter account: “barbie shit has NOTHING to do with ANYONE. i actually wrote it when i was seventeen and @Machine_Drum re-did the beat when i was 18.”
