WHO: Fast-rising Harlem dance-rapper Azealia Banks is more known for a flurry of self-imposed drama (starting random beefs, announcing and then shelving releases) than the songs she’s released. But the most interesting thing about “Jumanji”, from her new mixtape, is that it’s more about what’s going on around her.

WHY I LOVE IT: The catchy track shows off Banks’ spitting skills and savvy for what’s increasingly looking like inevitable mainstream success, her bratty flow gets impressively twisty over a lightheartedly jittery, seesawing beat from producers Hudson Mohawke and Nick Hook. I also love the elephant prom date graphic!
