Los Angeles, Calif., – January 10, 2012 – The Hundreds is pleased to announce Azealia Banks as the cover girl for The Hundreds Magazine: Music Edition, Vol. 3 Issue 2, with the publication set to release Thursday, February 2, 2012.
Contents of The Hundreds’ very first Music issue include a photo editorial and controversial, in-depth interview chock full of Banks’ fiery opinions about the music industry, the new crop of young women rappers, and common comparisons made between her and fellow La Guardia alum Nicki Minaj.
Banks on her career aspirations:  “I’m trying to be innovative, I want to be like Missy Elliott was, respected and accepted for doing her own thing.”
Banks on White Girl Mob rapper, Kreayshawn, amongst the rise of female rappers:  “As much as Kreayshawn would love to be considered part of this ‘rap game,’ she’s not.  I guess a part of me is kind of annoyed that those white girls are making these songs, and it’s like if these girls were black and making the same songs would you be that interested?”
Banks on Minaj:  “The butt, the hair, the this, the that, all the other shit, like… As much respect that I have for her, we’ve seen you do this already, what else can you do?”
Also featured among The Hundreds’ musical elite are photos and interviews with Yasmine Kittles of Tearist, DJ SOSUPERSAM, and record reviews by Junior Sanchez.
Other highlights within the pages include The Hundreds Spring and Summer ’12 lines and look books, alongside features on collaborators and artists like The Seventh Letter and Don Pendleton.
