It seems that with about every five twitter beefs, we get new material from Azealia Banks.
The Harlem bred emcee reveals "Yung Rapunxel," the first single from her debut Broke With Expensive Taste, which may not be for everybody. Stream the aggressive, electro record below and hit the comments with your thoughts!

Seriously, if you were not born and raised in NY.... DON'T CLAIM NY. YOU ARE NOT A NEW YORKER.Subliminal diss to Angel Haze, a fellow upcoming female emcee who relocated to NYC from Detroit? Perhaps; and she took it as such. A few "you ain't got no edges" jokes and claims of sexual rejection later, Angel drops "On The Edge," a diss track she claims she wrote in 20 minutes after the back and forth.

I've been so annoyed with the Twitter beef magnet Azealia Banks lately that I almost missed her new video for my favorite 1991 track, "Van Vogue." If you care, get the tea on her latest scuffle with the "original Vamp" Jim Jones HERE.

Azealia Banks delivers one final leak before her mixtape Fantasea hits the net tomorrow (I'll be traveling cross country for a funeral, so I'll be off my game) as she and British rapper Shystie team up on "Neptune." I've never heard anything from Shystie before, but I'll definitely be checking out more from the London Gyal's discography after this.

Azealia Banks taps veteran Styles P on "Nathan," the latest leak from her forthcoming mixtape Fantasea. I'm gonna put it out there that I'm a fan now, and I'm convinced that she's in it for the long haul. As long as the drama is kept to a minimum!

Wow, that was quick! Yesterday, M.I.A. revealed the Switch remix of her hit single "Bad Girls," and now she's let loose of N.A.R.S.'s contribution to her remix EP. Missy's featured yet again with a NEW verse, while Azealia Banks definitely holds her own amongst the vets.

Azealia Banks granted noisey full access to her "Liquorice" video shoot, and the crew followed her as she gave her take on the huge buzz that her music and persona has built. 1991 is on sale now!

Azealia Banks finally proves why she feels she can talk as much s**t as she does with her EP 1991. It hits iTunes but dynmk. released an exclusive free stream of the four track project. I'm loving it. That skit after "Van Vogue?" Hilarious.
If you're feeling 1991, make sure you cop it on iTunes HERE.

There have been so many Azealia Banks posts that I have drafted then deleted because they had nothing to do with her music. The majority of the news that surrounds her has to do with some controversy, most of which she instigates herself on Twitter. Glad to see that I'm not the only one who's sick of her immaturity, the Jump Off TV crew got together for another debate to discuss if she really has what it takes.

Every time I say I'm over Azealia Banks because of the way she takes to Twitter to come for rappers, she drops some new music and I give her another chance. "Jumanji," the first leak from her forthcoming debut album Broke With Expensive Taste, is no exception, because I'm feeling this.

Azealia Banks comes at the heads of whack rappers on her new track "Fuck Up The Fun." None of Diplo's recent beats have sounded alike and I'm excited to see what else he has in the reserves. Am I sensing Iggy Azalea shade at the end? Maybe...

A LOT has changed since I dropped Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 15 in January. The site has grown tremendously and the most noticeable changes are the brand new logo, layout and mascot. You've probably already noticed him/her already, but consider GUE Radio, Vol. 16 an introduction to Glass, The Gangsta Emoticon.
Gangstas Use Emoticons Radio, Vol. 16 features much of the new music posted on the site within the past month, and like I always say, this one is my best mix yet. With a diverse selection of artists ranging from Big K.R.I.T. to Azealia Banks and Meek Mill to M.I.A., I think you'll really enjoy this one.
Stream or download the mix below, and hit the jump for a detailed tracklisting with Rap Genius lyrics! Hit up the comments with your thoughts and requests for the next mix!
