Video: Azealia Banks – ‘Heavy Metal And Reflective’

Azealia Banks

Free at last. Following her departure from Universal Music, Azealia Banks debuts the video for “Heavy Metal and Reflective,” the first release on her independent label. After being kidnapped and taken to the desert, the Harlem rap diva breaks free, but not before telling off her captors.

“Don’t you know I’m the best bitch in the rap game? You’ll never get away with this,” says Banks.

In between scenes of her performing in motocross gear, she is rescued by a biker gang and rides off on the back of an ATV.

The video also features some symbolic imagery including a butterfly and barking pit bulls.

Watch Yung Rapunxel storm the desert.

    Iggy is miles better than Azealia. I’m not talking about rapping but everything else she’s far superior.

    @Andy, so what’s the point if you’re not talking about rapping? Iggy is a gimmick for the mindless and superficial. Go lay on your back somewhere, thot.

    @Andy, Werd. Azealia Banks is a wanna-be MIA. The only difference is, MIA has a message and her videos are miles better than this video.
    Azealia’s fanbase is so minimal she can’t even sell out a headline tour. Her show in London next month has been moved twice and it still hasn’t sold out and that is supposed to be her biggest market.
    The single she put out there last week, didn’t even make the top 200 on the UK chart this week.
    All I’m sayin is… the numbers don’t lie.

    “The video features some symbolic imagery…”

    Really, Rap-Up?

    [Reply]

    Nick Reply:

    @EL, Uhm the whole video is symbolic about her label keeing her captured from releasing anything and not letting her shine her true potential, and then her getting saved is her getting released and shining like the star she is.

    I’m taking that the kidnappers were her label, they were preventing her from showing off her talent and utilising her potential, and now that she’s free, she’s ready to shake shit up and she isn’t holding back, (The aggressive dogs) She’s ready guys, please make way she’s coming for that top spot!

    Deejay Reply:

    @Oh, Slow down retard. I didn’t say all that. But I do appreciate her doing something different visually than what Nicki is doing. I can admit that Nicki rapping about ass and being in a bikini all the time gets old real fast.

    @Deejay, Are there really that many female rappers dancing in thongs in music videoes?

    Azealia is madd talented. She just needs to stay out of trouble. Anyone who says that other broad with a similar name is better is obviously unaware of what talent is or what equates to hip-hop/rapping. Looks and “packaging” don’t equate to talent.

    more of the same

    all her songs have exactly the same formula, similar flow and electronic beats
    cliche and boring
    she don’t surprise me
