Watch: Azealia Banks - Liquorice


More than anything else, the command to watch this video applies to me (and anyone else who's been away from the internet for a little while), since I'm sure most of you who want to see it have done so already. Azealia Banks teams up with legendary photographer and Dazed and Confused mag co-founder Rankin for this western-inspired clip, all flowing weaves and a barrage of American flags.

For those of you in London, she's playing the BBC Hackney Weekend on the Sunday (June 24th), in one of her few surviving UK summer dates after an ex-manager's decision to keep her in the studio and focusing on her album. Since that time Azealia's fired that manager (and is now on her fourth in about nine months), left Twitter, released her 1991 EP and said she doesn't want to be part of the 'rap game'.

But as long as she keeps making the potty-mouthed, sharp-tongued tunes that are becoming her trademark, I'm cool with that. See below for the making of the video (courtesy of Noisey).
