Azealia Banks is like Nicki Minaj meets Santigold. Her style encompasses fierce rapping, clever wordplay, and creative rhythms. The production and craft recall Santigold, while the lyrical content, delivery, and attitude recall Minaj.

Banks is one of the most hyped (maybe most hyped) new artists of 2012. And the hype came from just a few songs posted on YouTube. But it's easy to see why. She is a skilled, versatile rapper whose music sounds original.

"1991" is an EP that builds on what we've seen from Banks on YouTube and gives a preview of what we'll see on her first studio album.

Personally, I enjoyed all four tracks on the album. All the songs on this album combine hardcore hip-hop with house music. "212" and "Liquorice" are previously released songs. "1991" and "Van Vogue" are new songs. "1991" and "212" are the songs I like the best.

On "1991", we see Banks combining her fierce rapping with a retro-house music beat. "212" has house influence that is more current sounding. "212" best displays Azealia's versatile delivery and ability to shocking yet clever wordplay.

Anybody from hip-hop to indie to electronic music fans should check out Azealia Banks' music. Looking forward to
hearing her upcoming mixtape and first studio album.

We see this new artist making her way in the industry, after already conquering Europe, she makes her forray into the music in the US with her debut EP "1991". My friend told me about Mrs. Banks, so I checked out 212. After listening to it, I was hooked. I bought the EP, when it came out and i really enjoyed it. It blends rap and electronic really well. Please give her a chance. I do like both Nicki Minaj and Azealia Banks, so I am not gonna choose a side. But there is something undeniably fresh about Azealia that she brings to the table.

We start out with 1991, a house kind of song. You hear a bustling coffee shop, then you transition into her voice. Talking about the older times and about other things. Then you go into Van Vogue, a track about fashion. This song has a jungle kind of theme to it, I really like it. It also showcases some real vocals from her. Then you go into the smashing 212, the pounding beats and bass. This song stands out, i really like this and it is my favorite. It does have some trash talk, but revolves around her life in New York. Then we polish off with Liquorice, a song about guys and sex. I like this one too. A catchy chorus and fun little beat.

Overall, Azealia Banks is marking her territory with her new EP. She does really well with blending electro and rap beats. I enjoyed this.

Azealia Banks shows her talent as a lyricist on a 4 track EP of fun, runaway party beats and carefully crafted rhymes that includes her YouTube sensation hit "212", a remastered version of her single "Liquorice", and 2 new songs: "1991" and "Van Vogue". This is a great way to wet the appetite for her first full length LP "Broke with Expensive Taste" set to release later in 2012.

I've been hooked on Azealia Banks since late last year, when "212" topped every music blogger's short list of artists to watch. That track, along with the other three featured on this EP (the title track in particular) offer a strong introduction to an emerging young artist who, with time and practice, will surely grow to define her artistic identity apart from the seemingly inevitable comparisons nearly all new artists are challenged to rise above. Fortunately for Banks, she already has a lot going for her. Her rhymes are witty, full of dirty talk and rapid fire free association and her ever fierce delivery backs up every word. Her musical sensibilities are quirky, yet ultimately accessible and above all, engaging. To top it off, her style is as refreshingly real as her songs. I recommend checking out this EP along with her recent mixtape Fantasea, which offers an in depth view of Banks' abilities and aesthetic, albeit considerably less commercial in its breadth than this all too brief collection of singles. Taken together, the two releases, along with the impeccable new video for "1991", are just enough to tide over fans hungry for her long awaited LP Broke with Expensive Taste, expected to drop in early 2013.

This had the song that basically made her known. It was 212. Everything in this EP has a very similar sound. I know almost the same producer was on every track on this EP. Personally I don't like 212 so much but I think almost every track is amazing. Plus none of these even appear on her album.

Azaelia Banks as an artist has a bit of that 'up and comer, i should have been recognized years ago" attitude....it reflects in her music. if she was a little less 'trying so hard' and a little more confident in her music I think she'd be better served.

This is my favorite project of 2012 and a must buy. It reminds me of 90s house/dance music and I hope her upcoming LP sounds just as good. She also has a mixtape called 'Fantasia' which is pretty good too.

Azealia Banks brings a great energy to her dance-influenced hip hop. She's a talented MC with a great singing voice. "212" and "Licorice" showcase her abilities very well.
