’12 Worst Albums: #4 Azealia Banks 1991


Azealia Banks kept it short on 1991. But depending on who you ask, she probably could’ve kept it to herself. Azealia’s efforts are admirable, but her EP is a messy integration of dance and hip-hop. Filling the void of Snap! and Crystal Waters is tough, but unlike her predecessors, Azealia’s lyrics are convoluted and shielded behind mindless instrumentals. 1991 was a good year, but we’ll leave this one in 2012.

    Hahahahaha… “intergation of dance and hip-hop”? The word you are looking for is “integration”, Brian. Take pride in your product B.dot. Love from Manchester, England!

    Honestly, I feel like RR just wanted to find a reason to shit on her music. How often do EP’s even get acknowledged as albums? I dont even care for Azealia’s music like that, but this was just another opportunity to talk bad about her. Kinda lame.

    • B.Dot

      @mellow. Anything sold counts as an album. i.e.: Bad Meets Evil’s EP. Take a listen a listen and call me back.

  • Ivy Blue Hov

  • Mellow

    @B.Dot Cmon! Of course that was gonna get acknowledged as an album! Lol. And naw, Im sure this project is garbage, but I just feel like yall went out of yall way to say it was garbage. That’s all. Still respect what you guys do over there.

    Dudes hate on this broad because she’s not humble and she could eat up most of these cats alive on a track. No surprise the hateration continues to flow in her direction.

    She’s doing new shzt. Get over it. Not your sound? Stop posting it. Better yet, stop posing your subjective personal opinion as fact or objective evaluation of her work. She wouldn’t have buzz around the globe if people weren’t digging her.

    I don’t see how artists like Nicki or Iggy don’t get slammed to the same degree for the projects they put out, when they’ve definitely put out some garbage.

    This is actually a great EP, don’t know why it’s getting all the hate.
