Azealia Banks - "212" Video (2011) 

www.azealiabanks.com

"212" (two-one-two) is the debut single by American rapper Azealia Banks. The musical base of the track is the song "Float My Boat" by Belgian DJ Jef Martens and his brother Toon (under the alias "Lazy Jay"), who also produced Banks' version. 

The song was first released on December 6, 2011 in the United Kingdom as the lead single from her 2012 EP 1991, and is also included on her debut studio album Broke with Expensive Taste (2014). The song is named after the area code 212 which covers Manhattan, New York where Banks grew up. In September 2011, the song was chosen as the Record of the Week by Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1. The song was included in many publications' end-of-year lists for 2011, being ranked at number 9 by Pitchfork Media and number 2 by The Guardian.

A music video to accompany the release of "212" was first released onto YouTube on September 12, 2011 at a total length of three minutes and twenty-five seconds. Directed by Vincent Tsang, the video is shot in black-and-white, and features Banks dancing in front of a brick wall and close-ups of her rapping to camera. In addition to Lazy Jay, the video also includes appearances by Québécois record producers Lunice and Jacques Greene.
