Current darling of blogs and bootie-shakers alike, Azaelia Banks is on a one way ticket to the top right now. We caught up with her after she wowed the crowd with rapid fire raps at our Pop Montreal 2011 show. Away from the stage it's clear that beneath her exuberant persona lies a remarkably humble and self-effacing character for someone so talented.

Known as Kanye West's Chicago protegé, Kid Sister started MC'ing at electro-duo Flosstradamus' infamous monthly parties back in 2005. Her endlessly quotable lines, flamboyantly party-driven charisma, and pioneering electro-rap sound soon gained her a national profile and spawned legions of imitators. She was signed by Montreal native A-Trak to his Fool’s Gold label and together they released her first single, "Pro Nails," featuring a cameo from Kanye himself. Her first album Ultraviolet featured work from such acclaimed producers as XXXChange, Sinden, and Rusko. The last few years have seen Kid Sister hitting the road relentlessly and perfecting her international blend of hip hop credibility and flamboyant party-rocking.
This young lyricist from Harlem, NYC was discovered by XL Recordings and signed onto their label alongside Vampire Weekend, The White Stripes, Adele and M.I.A. Now prepping her debut album, Azealia is working on fresh ways to craft her own sound and let people see what all the buzz about Miss Banks is about.
