Diplo and Azealia Banks on the Cover of VIBE


Well, well—look what washed ashore.

On the second cover of VIBE’s 2012 JUICE cover, Diplo and Azealia Banks recline on a California beach to highlight hip-hop’s ever-growing obsession with EDM (electronic dance music). The genre-blurring collaborators are each covered with their own feature stories—Diplo offers real talk on his button-pushing contemporaries, while Azealia reminiscens on crossing chopsticks with Kanye West.
