If you know me you know I’m obsessed with Azealia Banks. Her crazy fashion sense, dance moves, vulgar raps and love of absurdly long weaves go straight to my heart.
With her breakout hit “212”, she burst onto the scene as an indie rap darling, the edgy kid sister of Nicki Minaj, her Solange basically. She followed up that song with hip, tough, beats like “1991” (an obvious nod to her penchant for early 90’s raps and looks), Atlantis (bringing the seapunk trends straight from Tumblr) and “Liquorice” (a freak nasty song about the joys of interracial love) that made her just as fascinating as a visual artist. I have to remind myself that this girl doesn’t even have a full length album out yet. But here’s the first single from her debut album “Broke with Expensive Taste”, a song who’s title I think is a play on her love of long hair and her “rap punk” sense of style.
I’m just going to let this video speak for itself. If you are on drugs or heavily medicated I would wait a minute before watching this.
