Shystie - Diamond In The Dirt
Thanks to Anna Minard's heads-up, our favorite moment of Azealia Banks's first full mixtape is the surprise appearance by grime's Shystie.

Despite its highlights, Shystie's 2004 major-label debut Diamond In The Dirt was a bit of a rushed and stillborn affair that failed to fully extract her talents, which prevented her from grabbing the British black dance-culture cross-over baton from the likes of Ms. Dynamite or Kano, both of whom she previously and subsequently worked with to fantastic effect.

A real treat, then, to hear her pop up and run the road on all cylinders again.

Let's leap down the memory-hole.
