The 25 Best Rappers 25 And Under

15. Azealia Banks

Age: 21
Label: Interscope
From: Harlem, New York
Active Since: 2006
Twitter: @AZEALIABANKS
Best Known Song: "212" (2011)


This Harlem rapper vocalist caught our eye as soon as she released "212" and we've hardly turned away since. Banks has released a number of singles since her signature hit, each one sounding totally different from the next-one minute she's spitting bar after bar over a tropical beat on "Jumanji," the next minute she switches to prima donna mode on 1991.

Banks apparently has many more styles to hit us with; she's planning to release her mixtape, Fantasea, on July 4th, and her debut Broke With Expensive Taste in September.
