Azealia Banks – L8R (video)
Harlem, NY’s avant-garde up-and-comer Ms Azealia Banks (pronounced Ah-Zee-Lee-Yah) delivers her first video got “L8R” – a minute and a half of pure 808s, kick snares, and uncensored XXX swag coming from this cute young chick equipped with lipstick on a mouth like Uncle Luke, and a signature Uptown flow unheard of since Dipset. “LR8” is the latest of many collabos Miss Banks has worked on with Brooklyn based producer Machinedrum, who is quickly carving out his status as electronic music’s Renaissance man. In just over 90 seconds, Miss Banks explodes with raw confidence, flawless cadence on the beat, and a natural ability to excite the fellas with looks to match the rhymes. Be sure to keep an eye on her debut album to be released on XL Recordings.
