Yung Rapunxel Review.... Where is the iTunes Release?



Azealia Banks got a little freaky with her new single. "Danger, danger," a voice exclaims right out of the gate before a sputtering witch-house Lil Internet beat drops in over a voice whispering "I want to be free."

"Yung Rapunxel" hit iTunes March 26 and serves as the lead single off her upcoming debut album "Broke With Expensive Taste."

Azealia takes a breath before laying her NSFW rhymes all over the pounding bassline and leading into a — hear me out now — screamo segue where she yells "I dare to you" to everyone she's had beef with over the last year during her breakthrough.

In the middle of the track shattering glass is heard and a thunderstorm rolls in as a Mary J. Blige sample says "So tired...I'm so tired of all this drama" and the instrumental kicks back in with an added trance sound and her rapping with a flow similar to previous single "212."

I think it was a great choice for a lead single, especially after press had been more focused with her recent beefs with Perez Hilton, Baauer and Rita Ora, rather than the quality of her music. She really needed this song to prove she could back up her recent attitude, and it way over delivers. The track is very reminiscent of Zombie Nation and Zomby's glitchy trance style and The Prodigy, one of her influences.

Banks was born in Harlem, N.Y. in 1991, hence the namesake for "212," the lead single off her 1991 EP.
In mid 2012 she released her first mixtape, "Fantasea," which included a mixture of new songs and reworked versions of outtakes from recording sessions. She's been very well-received by music critics despite getting into spats with The Stone Roses, T.I., Jim Jones, Nicki Minaj and her two previous managers.

She strays far from the mainstream, but that's irrelevant because it's high time we have an actually talented female actively participating in the rap game. A change in music is always welcome and Banks is just the woman to bring that.
