Not the one to hold back on words – as witnessed in recent commotions against Kreayshawn, Nicki Minaj and The Stone Roses – Azealia Banks‘ latest deliverance comes as an unapologetic teaser to her upcoming Interscope release Broke With Expensive Taste. Produced by Lil Internet, “Yung Rapunxel” starts on a hard-hitting 140 bpm tempo before plunging into tropical drum layers, while abusive samples are flung about in a deranged manner. The young Harlemnite defensively chatters slang in between a cohort of bass and snares, displaying rugged uptown attitude witnessed in the anthem “212″ while stepping into grimier, polluted territories – coinciding in timely light with all the uproar the rapper is putting out at the moment.
