Our Summer Music issue, featuring the awesome Azealia Banks on our cover is on stands today (woo!). Check out our feature on the hip-hop firecracker, written by Mikael Wood and photographed by Emily Shur, in which she discusses writing her viral single "212" at a deeply un-fun time in her life, hanging out on Napster after school as a kid, and her upcoming album tentatively titled, Broke With Expensive Taste. Below, some GIF-ified Banks action from her photo shoot.
