Listen to Azealia Banks Cover the Strokes’ “Barely Legal”

While we all continue to wait patiently for Harlem rapper/Twitter-beef pro Azealia Banks‘ debut Broke With Expensive Taste, she’s gifted us with a cover of the Strokes “Barely Legal,” a cut from the band’s excellent debut Is This It? Here she flips the downtown-dirge of the Julian Casablancas original in favor of a synthed-out club version, with Banks herself opting to sing. Two things we’ve noticed: we’ll take an Azealia Banks Strokes cover over the band’s new material, and Banks herself has pretty good pipes!

In other Banks news, she’s noted on Facebook that “the label has finally let her out of her cage,” meaning that a new song called “#YUNGRAPUNXEL” is coming on March 26.
