By the age of 10, Harlem-raised rapper Azealia Banks was performing off-Broadway with the Tada! Youth Theater in Lower Manhattan. Banks starred in leading roles over the next several years, but when she started gravitating toward TV work, the process of auditioning left her disenchanted. Rap was an appealing alternative. In 2008, at 16, she teamed up with producer Diplo to release "Seventeen." After appearing on Major Lazer's "Can't Stop Now," she moved to Montreal and recorded two tracks, "L8R" and a cover of Interpol's "Slow Hands," but it was her next song, the bass-heavy, sexually charged "212," that put her in the public eye. In 2012, Banks relocated to London and worked on her debut full-length with producer Paul Epworth. ~ Jason Lymangrover, Rovi

Azealia Banks (born Azealia Amanda Banks, 1991) is an American rapper, singer and lyricist from Harlem, New York signed to Universal Records, and formerly known under the stage name Miss Bank$. Under the moniker Miss Bank$, she released her debut recording “Gimme A Chance” in February 2009. The recording was accompanied by “Seventeen,” a track produced by American DJ Diplo which sampled the Ladytron song of the same name. Later that year, Banks signed to XL Records and began working with producer Richard Russell. She soon left the label later that year due to creative differences. Following her departure from XL Recordings, Banks left behind the Miss Bank$ moniker and formally began recording as Azealia Banks. Using Youtube as a portal, Banks uploaded several demo tracks, including her original “L8R” and a cover of “Slow Hands” by Interpol. In December 2011, Banks officially released her debut single “212” featuring Lazy Jay. It peaked at #75 on the U.K. Singles chart. Though unsigned at the time, Banks began working with British producer Paul Epworth on a debut studio album. On January 16, 2012, Banks digitally released the track “NEEDSUMLUV (SXLND),” which coincided with what would have been the 33rd birthday of the late singer Aaliyah, who is sampled on the track. A week later saw the emergence of a second track entitled “Bambi,” which was produced by Paul Epworth, and was selected as the soundtrack for a Mugler fashion show in Paris.
