Fresh off of sniping at Beyoncé for staying in a failed marriage, supreme Harlem smack talker aka she who fears nada Azealia Banks releases a video for “The Big Big Beat,” the first visual from her mixtape “Slay-Z,” a song written by Banks and produced by An Expresso.
In a Matt Sukkar-directed visual, Banks embodies Odyssy’s “Native New Yorker,” comfortable strutting through inner-city landscapes, flashing narrow hips, bouncy new boobs, a butt length weave and her famously mischievous smile.
Definitely if you’re an old g New Yorker, this video will have you seriously reminiscing on the magic of NYC in the ’90s when tripped out groups like Dee-Lite ruled the roost.
Banks of course is no carbon copy of the past, and is clearly informed by current day culture and yet to her credit she’s one of the few popular artist who honors and brings to the present the carefree spirit of Freestyle, club music and hip hop.
We’ve said it before and we’ll said it again, definitely she should be SO MUCH BIGGER though one need only to circle back to the first sentence of this review to see why she is where she is. It’s not fair, but Banks should know the score by now.
