Azealea Banks - Heavy Metal and Reflective
The Curious Case of Azealia Banks, A Soundboard File: Chapter 4. I think it’s been said several times over here on Soundboard, but we like Azalea Banks. But… we’re a little worried about her. And not in a patronizing way. She’s a big girl and she’s not exactly Amanda Bynes’ing her way to the bottom or anything, she just has a bad case of foot-in-mouth syndrome. No need to document all the cases of it here, that’s what Google is for. It just pains me to have championed her so long ago and not really be able to justify it anymore since her debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste, is still nowhere to be seen. In 2014. 2 years after we first said it would be arriving. Is it okay? Did it fall down a well? Maybe Banks Casey Anthony’d the album and we need Nancy Grace to help. Just kidding. I’d never ask Nancy Grace for help because then the situation would be Nancy Grace’d.
Regardless of the way Banks has Damon Baehrel’ed this album, she does come through with a few banging singles every few months (though, none of which rival her epic breakout single 212). So when I saw her drop Heavy Metal and Reflective today, I knew it was time to check in with miss Yung Rapunzel.
She could not be reached for comment. She’s… dodging** our calls.
**I couldn’t think of a pop culture figure who’s famous for avoiding things
