Azealia Banks ‘Jumanji’: Rapper Blasts Bad Grammar, Reps New York City on Song
Interscope signee Azealia Banks drops the first song off her 1991 EP, due later this month. The effort, “Jumanji,” which was inspired by the 1995 film starring Robin Williams, finds the “Black Rapunxel” delivering raps over a beat that commences with a harp for some fairytale flair.
“They want my photos and pictures inside of their candid cameras,” she spits on the Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook-produced track.
Steel drums sound, Banks serves a chorus of “real bitch all day, uptown Broadway” — an homage to her New York roots — and takes aim at her female enemies’ bad grammar.

After releasing her EP, Banks, 20, will debut the Fantastic mixtape and come September, her full-length album, Broke With Expensive Taste, arrives. She also recently recorded the remix to M.I.A.’s “Bad Girls,” which also features Missy Elliott and Rye Rye. The track is set to release in the coming weeks.
