Whoa! Talk about attention grabbing. Rapper and Harlem-born fashionista Azealia Banks has finally taken a break from her various beefs to premiere the lead single from her upcoming debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste, reportedly due sometime this summer.
But what the heck is a Yung Rapunxel anyway? As Azealia Banks explains on her Twitter, it’s the name of a “mad scientist” and the title to her latest single to drop online. Do we sense some Nicki Minaj alter egos?? Either way, Banks’ spitfire raps are delivered in a low register over a busy background of punishing beats and chaotic screams. Think “No Church in the Wild” times 10, minus the Frank Ocean crooning.
And here you thought only Rihanna embraced her inner crazy.
Give Azealia Banks’ “Yung Rapunxel” a listen below.
