At the tender age of 22 and with only one officially released EP to her name, Azealia Amanda Banks has become a festival-headlining rap sensation. That's down to three things: her knack for publicity (she's had prominent Twitter feuds with everyone from Angel Haze to The Stone Roses), some canny collaborations (including Machinedrum and Pharrell) and her tight, fast, expletive-riddled flow.

Live, she has a habit of busting out freaky moves while dressed as a dinosaur or a mermaid. Tonight you can look forward to hearing tracks from Banks's epically delayed debut album, 'Broke With Expensive Taste': it was announced last January and still doesn't have a release date.
