Listen: 'Neptune' by Azealia Banks
From her 'Fantasea' mixtape, out tomorrow!
Ahead of tomorrow's release of her Fantasea mixtape, Azealia Banks has thrown us another musical bone, this time with the help of British rapper Shystie.

Azealia expressed some nervousness about tomorrow's mixtape release via her Twitter, saying "Lololololol I hope you guys like it! I'm nervoussssss." She also tweeted:

If you're anything like us and kind of can't wait until tomorrow, get some more Azealia Banks goodness here — download 'Aquababe', listen to 'Nathan' ft. Styles P, watch her 'Liquorice' video directed by Rankin and styled by Nicola Formichetti, or stream her 1991 mixtape.
