Azealia Banks is a mermaid — a Technicolor one at that — and you can't tell her any different.
Azealia is proving that aside from stirring up Twitter beef with just about any artist that has ever touched a mic, she also has time for other things, like being the cover girl for SPIN Magazine's October issue.
The playful, yet stunning, photo shoot features the Harlem native being her normal fierce self in a multitude of in-your-face poses for the music mag.
The photos, taken by photog Jason Nocito, accurately capture the rapper's electric character and make it quite clear why some fashion heavy-hitters have developed something of an obsession with Azealia.
Speaking of fashion, Anastasia Marano's styling accurately embodies Ms. Banks' cartoonish character, especially with what may be our favorite from the shoot, a Bart Simpson woven shirt!
According to a teaser from SPIN, the accompanying cover article features details from an trip with "unprecedented access," to Azealia's life, including "hanging with Ms. Banks in New York, settling down to chat at her new home in Los Angeles, and spending an afternoon strolling around Disneyland, to get the uncut backstory that lead to her burst of blog-fame, her embrace by designers from Karl Lagerfeld to Alexander Wang, and her rise to the verge of pop stardom."
Be sure to check out the entire October issue of SPIN when it hits the stands.
