Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks had to cancel a bevy of summer festival dates to meet recording obligations, but she’s making up for it with a proliferative spring: she has plans to drop her 1991 EP within the month, followed closely by her summer mixtape, Fantastic. Meanwhile, her debut LP, Broke With Expensive Taste, is slated for a September release. In the meantime, the New York rapper has released a track from Fantastic, the Hudson Mohawke-/Nick Hook-produced “Jumanji,” which, although devoid of a Robin Williams guest verse, is chock-full of the tropical sounds you’d expect from the title. It’s been a while since we’ve heard steel drums in a song about “reefer and cabanas” and “bougie bitches,” but this is definitely not Parrothead territory. Think of it as dancehall percolated through Harlem bombast — “212” at the beach.
