PHYSICAL RELEASE TO FOLLOW JUNE 12

?212? Video Nets More Than 15 Million Views

Interscope/Polydor recording artist Azealia Banks will release her EP 1991 digitally on May 29 with a physical version to follow on June 12.

?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.?

?Banks? video for ?212 (featuring Lazy Jay)? already has more than 15 million views. Check it out

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.? ??212? works because its popcraft and its shock tactics are each other’s Trojan horses — concentrate on one and the other sneaks up on you,? said Pitchfork.com. ?But the more you dig into the song,?the more you can hear details and decisions that suggest a scary degree of pop talent.?

?She is currently recording her full-length debut album, which is due out in the fall.
