Azealia Banks: 212


Azealia Banksʻʻ212ʼʼ Video (2011)


ʻʻ212ʼʼ (spoken two-one-two) is the debut single by American rapper Azealia Banks. The song is named after the area code 212 which covers Manhattan, New York where Banks grew up. The musical base of the track is the song ʻʻFloat My Boatʼʼ by Belgian DJ Jef Martens and his brother Toon (under the alias ʻʻLazy Jayʼʼ), who also produced Banks‘ version. The song was first released on December 6, 2011 in the United Kingdom as the lead single from her 2012 EP 1991, and is also included on her debut studio album Broke with Expensive Taste (2014).

Banks identifies as bisexual. During the few instances where she has discussed her sexuality with the press, Banks has expressed dissatisfaction with society’s labeling of others based on sexual orientation. In an interview with The New York Times, Banks stated, ʻʻI’m not trying to be, like, the bisexual, lesbian rapper. I don’t live on other people’s terms.ʼʼ

About this music video: A music video to accompany the release of «212» is shot in black-and-white, and features Banks dancing in front of a brick wall and close-ups of her rapping to camera. In addition to Lazy Jay, the video also includes appearances by Québécois record producers Lunice and Jacques Greene. In the video Azealia Banks is singing about an older female rapper who had talent but didn’t full make it. She has a girlfriend from Paris who really likes Azealia’s clothes and style and wants to have sex with her, which Azealia will do to humiliate the older rapper. All of this was happening in the Manhattan (area code 212) scene, specifically Harlem (uptown A train). Older rapped ʻʻhad a lotʼʼ of talent but procrastinated and ʻʻliked to slumberʼʼ, squandering her talent. So it’s a self fulfilling prophecy from 2011 as the same thing has happened to Banks

ʻʻ212ʼʼ Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Hey, I can be the answer
I’m ready to dance when the vamp up
And when I hit that dip get your camera
You could see I been that bitch since the Pamper
And that I am that young sis the beacon
The bitch who wants to compete and
-I can freak a fit that pump with the peep and
-You know what your bitch become when her weave in
-I just wanna sip that punch with your peeps and
Sit in that lunch if you’re treatin’
-Kick it with your bitch who come from Parisian
-She know where I get mine from, and the season
-Now she wanna lick my plum in the evenin’
-And fit that ton-tongue d-deep in
-I guess that cunt getting eaten

[Verse 2]
I was in the 212
On the uptown A

Bet you do want to fuck!
Fuck him like you do want to cum
You’re gay to get discovered in my 2 1 deuce
Cock-a-lickin’ in the water by the blue bayou
Caught the warm goo
In your du-rag too son?
Nigga, you’re a kool-aid dude
Plus your bitch might lick it
Wonder who let you come to 1 2
With your doo-doo crew son
Fuck are you into, huh?
Niggas better oooh-run-run
You could get shot homie
If you do want to put your guns up
Tell your crew don’t front
I’m a hoodlum nigga
You know you were too once…

A-yo, A-yo
I heard you ridin’ with the same tall, tall tale
Tellin’ em you made some
Sayin’ you grindin’ but you ain’t goin’ nowhere!
Why procrastinate girl?
You got a lot, but you just waste all yours and
They’ll forget your name soon
And won’t nobody be to blame but yourself, yeah

What you gon’ do when I appear?
W-W-when I premiere?
Bitch the end of your lives are near
This shit been mine, mine!

[Verse 3]
Bitch I’m in the 212
With the fif cocked nigga
It’s the 2 1 zoo
Fuck ya gon do
When ya goon sprayed up
Bet his bitch won’t get him
Betcha you won’t do much!
See, even if you do want to bust
Your bitch’ll get you cut and touch your crew up too, Pop
You playing with your butter
Like your boo won’t true
Cock the gun, too
Where you do eat poom, hun
I’m fuckin’ with ya cutie q
What’s your dick like homie?
What are you into?
What’s the run dude?
Where do you wake up?
Tell your bitch keep hatin’

See I remember you when you were
The young new face but you do like to
Slumber don’t you?
Now your boo up too hun
I’m-a ruin you, cunt!

What you gon’ do when I appear?
W-W-when I premiere?
Bitch the end of your lives are near
This shit been mine, mine!
