Azealia Banks returns to the rap game [News/Video]

New York, NYAzealia Banks has been causing some rukus in the music industry lately after she went on a social media rant saying she was done with the rap game and that she didn’t want a male manager anymore. I guess she’s staying cause she just released the second single called “Aquababe” off her mixtape Fantasea which drops July 4th and the second visual for a song off her debut EP 1991. I can’t even lie I love this chick; she’s only 21, and she raps, sings, dances and really doesn’t give AF what people think about her. Click the jump to watch the new video and for more on the story.

A few days ago Banks posted on Tumblr saying she was done with the rap game. From what I interpreted the media started to get under her skin. She said “i never was…and as soon as i started paying attention to bullshit urban media, i started getting myself in trouble. From now on i’m a vocalist, and will not be associating myself with the “rap game” … or whatever the f*ck that means…” She went on to state that she was done with Twitter (she has it back now) and would only be using Tumblr. In her defense and as a young artist it can’t be easy being in the public eye, constantly scrutinized. On top of this she’s been having management issues. Before her Twitter account was deleted she said “I really want a female manager. Women are just so much smarter. I just want a really hardcore woman…Or a really gay man as my manager…You other n***as have WAY too much ego sh*t with y’all.”

This track alone is just crazy but the visual makes it 10x better.
