Video: Azealia Banks – ‘Yung Rapunxel’

Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks sets “Yung Rapunxel” free in the dark and demonic video for the first single off her upcoming debut Broke With Expensive Taste. Harlem’s controversial femcee will make your skin crawl as she raps with an owl on her head and mouths in place of her eyes. She rides a mechanical bull and fights the police in the sinister clip, which includes Illuminati references.

“It came from wearing long weaves,” Azealia said of her nickname. “If you could take your youth and stretch it forever, it’s like long youth.”

Go inside the evil mind of Yung Rapunxel in the video below.

    @The Crowd Updater, I agree. Its funny how only black artists are thought to be in the illumanti…but no white artists are ever punished or demonized for being outlandish or out of the box or successful…and if the illumanti was sooo powerful…wouldn’t they do a better job of keeping this supposedly secret organization a secret? If you believe in the illumanti then don’t look up artist that you know are in this organization because you’re just adding to their success and stop wasting your time arguing with strangers

    @BeReal, Actually, white artists like Gaga, Kesha, Madonna are also enlisted as Illuminatis. In fact, is a matter of sexes, not race. A lot of female artists are called illuminatis. I think must of them don’t care and do that symbolism to annoy the critics.

    @BeReal, it’s not about the race. We won’t go there. Jesus was black (if you subscribe to the Judeo/Hebraic and Abrahamic religions) it’s the fact that this girl calls herself a witch, and is purposely putting all this negative imagery associated throughout history with spiritual possesion/contamanation (if youd care to investigate yourself and not let YouTube do it for you) in her videos for buzz and shock value.

    The “symbolism”is simply a bunch of images to get stupid people talking illuminati shit. Azealia’s thirsty as fuk.Does anyone think the new world order would want Banks ? FLOP. Oh,….and some of the shots of her with the police make her look like a linebacker in drag……..just saying.

    Is she serious when she said it took her 2 years to write this song -_-. If she’s serious, she shouldn’t even be considered a contender for best female rapper. Bye

    @Jade, I ain’t just about the lyrics you know? it’s about the worldplay,the rhythm,how the words fit with the beat; on this level Azealia has no competition.

    Imma break it down for the stans here…..the song is shit . The video,whilst being well shot,is just a bunch of images cobbled together to get people talking .the people who are impressed by the eyes and mouth thing….that’s been overdone already,longtime. To be real KUNT you need to be more than real hood rat .She’s reaching……but that nasty assed personality just keeps dragging her ass back.

    [Reply]

  56. wowowow

    Im not really a fan of her, shes “alright” but thats it. shes done way better before though. “Jumanji” “l8r” “Liqourice” and the 1991 EP are some of her best songs. This is shit and garbage. Horrible choice for a debut single from her debut album. Lyrically you cant hear her, and the video was just a bunch of shock value. Don’t think this will go far successfully at all.I give her points for being innovative and experimenting with new sounds but Sorry Azealia, better luck next time.

    I’ve listened to this twice so far, and so far I have stopped the song from playing all the way through. She keeps saying the same words, ‘clit’, ‘bi$$h’, and now she’s screaming… I have to agree with some posters here, I can’t believe that it took her 2 years to make this song. I’m thinking that due to all of her twitter drama, the song was left half finished and she had no choice but put this half finished song to print. She added the screams and the scatting to mask it being unfinished. Big fail.

    She’s a much better rapper than this. 1991, 212, Liquorice,Van Vogue, No problems, Control with Shystie, etc. She can put out lyrics that have good wordplay and excellent timing that we can actually HEAR, but frankly I think her star’s about out.

    Angel Haze is now getting more airplay than her. She just did a FUSE interview. Iggy Azealia song “Work” is playing, playing, playing. If someone WANTS to work with HER now, there may be hope; I just think she started too many fires that all those bridges are burnt to ash and she’s stuck on an island. Sad.

    She has a lot of talent. I hope that someone can work with her so that she can turn it around (take this song down, it sucks)and actually put something out that’s worthy of airtime. Hell, Interscope sponsors her so they at least got to get their money back; and she better make some money for them, or else they will drop her. She knows this.

    Maybe she needs to start over, or maybe she just needs to give up. Didn’t she say that, “being a rapper is un-ladylike” in one of her interviews? Well, it’s time to choose. She can either be an un-ladylike rapper for an album and then *cough* retire, or just give it up and go back to performing art school. Her ‘career’ has reached a position to where she can make that choice. She hasn’t put out anything yet, so she still has a way to back out of a contract….
