Azealia Banks x The Hundreds

Azealia Banks (aka Krystal Pepsy) is an up-and-coming urban star hailing from the States with some fresh quirky hip-hop beats. Her recent single '212' has been causing major earthquakes on the underground scene, with several critics eagerly anticipating her debut album. The 21-year-old also came third on the BBC Sound of 2012 poll facing stiff competition from fellow compatriots Skrillex and Frank Ocean with the Brit, Michael Kiwanuka topping the poll. Ms. Banks has a very fresh and original style that we are loving here at OBWD with a combined original sound. She has recently collaborated with Scissor Sisters under her 'alter-ego' Krystal Pepsy in 'Shady Love'. Images above are for her shoot with Brooke Nipar for The Hundreds magazine of which she is fronting this month's addition. Here's her recent hit single 212...
