Music Scene is delighted to reveal that Interscope / Polydor recording artist Azealia Banks will release her EP 1991 digitally on May 29th 2012 with a physical version to follow on June 8th 2012. Azealia Banks, a 20-year-old rapper/singer from Harlem, topped NME’s Cool List and ranked in the Top 3 of the BBC Sounds of 2012 poll.

“What’s fresh about Banks is how she combines audacious charisma with lyrical naughtiness and genre hopscotching,” said Interview while V Magazine observed: “Her rapid-fire, crystalline raps are astounding in their elasticity, punctuated with clever puns, one-liners, and taunting, confrontational raunch.”

Azealia Banks’ video for “212 (featuring Lazy Jay)” already has more than 15 million views. You can check it out right here on Music Scene:

SPIN called “212” a “dizzyingly addictive throwdown” while W noted: “when she’s not spewing taunts, she’s singing with all the depth and prowess of an R&B star.”

Azealia Banks is currently recording her full-length debut album, which is due out in the Autumn.
