Azealia Banks (1991-) is an American rapper and singer, who rose to fame after her music video "212" [[MemeticMutation went viral]] in late 2011. Her wild persona and explicit rapping style have put her in direct comparison by critics and bloggers to fellow female rapper NickiMinaj; the two even attended the same high school, albeit in different years. After a failed record deal with XL, Azealia signed to Universal in 2012, and is currently at work on her debut album, ''Broke With Expensive Taste''.

** and she's recorded with LadyGaga for Gaga's "ArtPop"



* [[ScrewedByTheNetwork Screwed by The Label]]: Azealia originally signed with XL in 2009, but the deal ended up falling through when they had no idea what to do with her. [[CreatorBreakdown "212" was written as a last ditch effort to impress them.]]
