Azealia Banks

‘Fantasea’, the new Azealia Banks mixtape formerly known as ‘Fantastic’, came out at 12pm (New York time) yesterday, and you should probably listen to it. Unless you hate and despise Azealia Banks, in which case… don’t. Featuring guest cameos by Styles P and grime MC Shystie, its sum total is three remixes and fifteen Banks originals. I say this based on what Banks has said, though there are in fact nineteen tracks listed. Maybe the skit doesn’t count, who honestly knows?

The rapper has added context to the compilation across a series of tweets, saying: “I originally started this mixtape with the intention of letting go a ton of old ideas… like songs I started writing but never finished. My ideas and concepts started to develop, so I changed the title and began to try and make the project more cohesive. ‘Fantasea’ is almost kind of a first album of sorts… but it happened by mistake… it’s weird. This is a test run… I tried a lot of cool things… sounds I thought were progressive, beats made by close friends, different flowsss”.
