Azealia Banks managed to double the tempo of rap as its commonly practiced in the 21st century, draw from the past as well as the cutting edge of dance music, flex some impressive lyrical chops and make a great pop record. If she keeps this up she just might change the game. She’s already created a lane occupied by no one but her.
“Chasing Time” is from Broke With Expensive Tastes, Banks’ full length debut that’s easily a top three album for 2014. There’s really only one Azealia that anyone with expensive taste needs to be concerned about for 2015 and beyond.
