Azealia Banks has been Giving Away ‘Fantasea’, her 19-Track Mixtape
Is she being generous or what? Azealia Banks has been giving fans a free copy of her 19-track mixtape titled ‘Fantasea’. It is now available for download if you want. There have been several delays in its release but the ‘212’ rapper has finally delivered the goods. She unveiled her highly anticipated mixtape and topped things by offering a free copy of the compilation. It incorporates 15 original songs with 3 remixes.
- What do you get for free? First of all we noted that she included her recent release titled ‘Aquababe’ as well as ‘Salute’. You will also get ‘F**k up the Fun’, the result of her collaboration with Diplo. In addition there is a cover of ‘Out of Space’ which was originally done by The Prodigy.
The Harlem rapper revealed that she had used a sea theme for ‘Fantasea’. However she says that it is less obviously about mermaid stuff. Instead she opted for witchy hip-hop. In her words there is ‘some real rave s**t’. We got a bit more information from the 21-year old as she discussed the mixtape on her Twitter account. She says that it is almost like a first album of sorts but that it happened by mistake. The singer admits that it is a bit weird.
Testing the test run
In her own words Azealia Banks considers her latest effort to be a trial balloon. She says that she tried a lot of cool things which she considered to be progressive. For example she looked at the beats that were made by her close friends but used ‘different flows’. Meanwhile we hear that the singer has been penned in to perform at the Reading and Leeds Festivals which are due to take place this August. She will then return to the UK for an October headline tour. The track listing for ‘Fantasea’ is given below:
(‘Out Of Space’, ‘Neptune’ (Featuring Shystie), ‘Atlantis’, ‘Fantasea’, ‘Fuck Up the Fun’, ‘Ima Red’, ‘Fierce’, ‘Chips’, ‘Nathan’ (Featuring Styles P), ‘L8R’, ‘Jumanji’, ‘Aquababe’, ‘Runnin’, ‘US’, ‘Pardiso’, ‘Luxury’, ‘Azealia Skit’, ‘Esta Noche’ and ‘Salute’.)
