With the “Harlem Shake” phenomenon/cultural gift from God setting the World Wide Web ablaze, Harlem rapper Azealia Banks is the latest soul to get swept up in the craze. But Banks isn’t just doing another side-splitting dance video wearing a gorilla mask; she’s gone ahead and dropped a few bars over Baauer’s bass-tastic banger. Faced with the aural juggernaut, Banks more than holds her own by relying on her cutting wit and lightning-fast flow to drop all sorts of bombs (“The X and the O’s / the exes and ho’s / I’ll exit and ghost”). Stream it below.

Oh, and Ms. Banks, if you ever want to shoot a video for the track, you have the entire CoS staff at your disposal. (This particular writer does a mean “shopping cart”). For inspiration, enjoy some of the best “Harlem Shake” videos following the embed.
