Last night, Harlem rapper/vocalist Azealia Banks took her show to Williamsburg to perform at a SPIN and Refinery 29 sponsored party thrown in her honor. Our peeps at SyleBlazer were on hand and dropped a rundown.

SPIN‘s final cover girl, Azealia Banks, treated her fans to a pre-Fashion Week set in Williamsburg, NYC last night. Hosted by Virgin Mobile, the issue party was a collabo-celebration with Refinery29, and the Harlem-bred rapper/fashion darling was the night’s headlining act. With locks down to her butt and clad in barely there leather, the pint-size Yung Rapunxel broke out fan faves  for the homecrowd. Along with DJ Hooks on the 1′s and 2′s, two fierce vogue dancers, and her oh so naughty lyrics, Azealia and crew turned the Wythe Hotel into a dance frenzy that was just too posh for a fist pump. Props to the guy who worked and twerked it out in the front row.

Azealia also debuted her new single, “Esta Noche,” a mashup of old school Montell Jordan and new school house beats.

Check out video of Banks’ doing her thing, courtesy of illHype, and check out photos from the event over at StyleBlazer.
