93. Azealia Banks

Occupation: Musician
Biggest accomplishment this year: Receiving two BET Awards nominations

Azealia Banks has made nearly as many headlines this year for her controversial tweets as she has for her music, but one thing we can all agree on is that the 21-year-old rapper is undeniably talented. Her first studio album, Broke With Expensive Taste is scheduled to drop later this year. Her work thus far has netted her two nominations for BET Awards: Best Female Hip Hop Artist and Best New Artist. She's also managed to start Twitter wars with pretty much every active rapper, putting to test the theory that there's no such thing as bad publicity. Based on her rising popularity, Banks seems to be right.
