If you had to pick any of the ladies on this list as sure-bet, our money would be on Azealia Banks. The 21-year-old rapper is the hottest thing on the blogosphere right now with every new buzz single and mixtape being hailed as a game-changer. Given the deafening buzz surrounding the New York-based femcee, it’s almost surprising to discover that she is yet to appear on the Hot 100 – a fact that will be rectified sooner rather than later if the quality of her 1991 EP and Fantasea mixtape is any indication. Azealia has revived the rap game with her spitfire flow, outrageous lyrics and club-friendly beats. Think of her as the fresh and fun antidote to pop-friendly rappers like Nicki Minaj and Pitbull.
