Azealia Banks – Yung Rapunxel

Harlem Rap vixen Azealia Banks is no stranger to beef and riots (at least her online reputation isn’t). The controversial songstress-slash-fashionista has been known to get into it via Twitter with the likes of male contemporaries like Harlem peer Jim Jones (the two argued about handbags at one point). That said, Ms. Banks decides to do what she does best for her latest single “Yung Rapunxel”–talk smack in style! Director Jam Sutton sets up a dark, aggressive riot police-prone setting filled with esoteric imagery and special effects. The result is a visual mind shag that at least makes the diva memorable if not likable.
