Azealia Banks and UK grime MC Shystie have teamed up for “Neptune”, the newest song to be ‘leaked’ from her upcoming mermaid themed,19 track mixtape Fantasea which is slated to be released later today.
These two together? I knew it wasn’t gonna be a straight hip-hop joint and I knew it was gonna be bananas. Recently, we’ve seen Shystie venturing away from the typical grime/rap production and experimenting with some pretty hardcore dance beats.
Although there may be a risk of disgruntling their diehard fans that may prefer they stay in their respective ‘mc lanes’, these ladies do not give a monkeys, and continue to stay true to their creative impulses, throwing in plenty of singing for good measure. The cover art is so fitting in more ways than one.
