"we fucked up! My DJ skipped two songs by mistake! LMFAOO so when 212 came on I just went with it. #womp" - AZEALIA BANKS

"Omg that was tooooo much fun !!!!" - AZEALIA BANKS

"One thing Azealia Banks needed to prove when she walked onstage for her Saturday afternoon set at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival -- her first official gig in the U.S. -- was how deserving she is of the massive hype that's been thrown her way.

Since her introduction into the post-Nicki Minaj world of female rap through the deliciously profane firecracker of an anthem, "212," the Harlem spitfire has become a major darling on rap and indie blogs that have grown disenchanted with Minaj's syrupy pop hits. This without a barrage of tracks, as evidenced by a set that ended 20 minutes earlier than expected." [LA Times]

Check out videos of most of her quick set, below...

Comments (20) original. Shouldn't it be 917 since everyone lives on their cellphone? She's on some landline shit hahahaha.

Oh so now Nicki Minaj is on the outs? And there's such a thing called the "post-Nick Minaj world" of rap? Time for a badass black girl rapper now?

C-rap gets more ridiculous by the week.

Release a few shitty mp3s = get a record deal and slot at Coachella. Music blows.

LOL @ the Nicki Minaj fans on here mad because the two songs Azealia has out are lyrically better than anything Nicki has ever dropped. This girl is about to kill Nicki. She can sing (without autotune)probably better than she raps which is a huge deal since she is such a talented rapper. 30 year old Nicki is done. This girl's talent is what Nicki wishes she had. She's about to expose your fav in a major way. At the least, she'll force Nicki to step her bars up, so she can quit dropping tracks meant for the mentally retarded.

So wait the 2 songs her DJ skipped were 12 and a half minutes long each? I may be hung over as a mutha fucka today but that don't make no damn sense why ending 25 minutes early!

3:23, if you truly think there are Nicki Minaj fans commenting on this, you need your head checked. This chick is getting alot of unwarranted hype. Listen to Jean Grae, then go fuck yourself.
