New Video: Azealia Banks – ‘The Big Beat’

azealia-banks-the-big-big-beat-new-video-thatgrapejuice

Conveniently coinciding with the release of her new video, ‘The Big Beat,’ fans of Azealia Banks may lend the rapstress a collective side-eye for the timeliness of her ‘anti-Lemonade'(Beyonce) rant last night.  But, after a quick view of the visual – the latest release lifted from her ‘Slay-Z’ mixtape – we’re certain that pause will turn to praise.

Indeed, living up to the title of its parent project, the ‘Beat’ is 3 minutes and 56 seconds of pure house hop slayage – something Banks is accustomed to delivering.

Don’t believe us?  Find out for yourself below:

Azealia Banks Slams Beyonce’s #Lemonade: ‘She’s A Thief’ [#ICYMI]

Rapper Accuses Bey’s Project Of Being Bad For Black Women

beyonce lemonade azealia banks feminist

Earlier this year Azealia Banks vowed to take a permanent hiatus from Twitter.  However, as our good sis Jazmine Sullivan once wailed, ‘forever don’t last long.’

For, in a move to redirect #Beyhive stings from the mysterious Beckies of the world to herself, Banks took to Twitter to rant about Beyonce‘s hotly-selling new project ‘Lemonade.’  Accusing the songstress of being ‘anti-feminist’ and even plagiarizing some of the album’s critically acclaimed content, Banks is reaching for wig glue after questioning the validity of some of ‘Lemonade’s insinuations (namely those surrounding Jay Z‘s alleged infidelity).

Do you agree with her rant?  Or, is it just ole AB looking to cash in on some media shine?  You tell us:

Rapstress & Politician Trade Words On Twitter

Remember that whole “swearing off Twitter forever” thing Azealia Banks promised just weeks ago?  Well, apparently she doesn’t.

For, in typical A.B. form, the ‘ATM Jam’ diva is dispensing some controversy-causing shade on social media and, in turn, has tongues wagging.  Unlike many of her former victims on the site, her newest target – Sarah Palin – is planning her clapback in the courtroom.

Did you miss any of the action?  Tuck in below to find out what ensued after Banks suggested Palin ‘get a train run on her’ and film the venture for WorldStar…

#Navy Continue Azealia Banks Attack After Rihanna Diss

rihanna thatgrapejuice azealia banks

While one breaks records, the other is just…well…broke (with expensive taste).

Interestingly, though their chart stats and overall relevancy sing two very different tunes, one thing Azealia Banks and Rihanna have in common is an apparent absence of “give a damn” – often evidenced by their willingness to use social media as a battleground to wage war against other artists.

Now, just days after announcing a permanent departure from Twitter (and dissing K. Michelle along the way), Banks took to Instagram to diss footage lifted from Rih’s “sold out” ‘Anti’-tour.  Criticizing the singer’s dance moves as ‘lazy,’ the ‘ATM Jam’ maestra dispensed a lengthy weigh-in on the Bajan beauty (much to the displeasure of her faithful #NAVY).

If you’ve missed any of this ongoing action, catch it below:

Iggy Azalea: ‘I Still Hate Azealia Banks’ / Banks Responds #ICYMI

iggy elle tgj azealia

Of all her highly publicized beefs (see: Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Q-Tip, Nicki Minaj, etc.), there’s one person it’s pretty safe to say ‘Fancy’ hitmaker Iggy Azalea won’t ever fancy – arch nemesis Azealia Banks.  And, just in case she’d forgotten, Iggy Iggz offered a stinging reminder courtesy of her sit down with ‘Elle’ Canada.

As reported here, the Grammy nominated rapstress graced the cover of this month’s issue of the publication and shared an in depth reflection of her controversial 2015.  Weighing in on everything from her hip hop backlash to her beef with Papa Johns, it appears few stones were left unturned in the tell-all interview.

Yet, while many readers were glued to her thoughts on hot topics like ‘Black Lives Matters,’ they may have skipped right over her direct comments on her ‘Ice Princess’-performing enemy:

New Song: Azealia Banks – ‘The Big Big Beat’

azealia-banks-that-grape-juice-2016-1910110

After wooing fans with the complex and layered stories presented with the likes of ‘Count Contessa‘ and ‘Idle Delilah’, Azealia Banks seeks to do the same with her brand new cut ‘The Big Big Beat.’

Alas, despite showcasing her gift for crafting stunning melodies when singing, the number fails to impress on rap front, lacking the storytelling qualities or infectious flows that made her earlier releases what they were.

Ready to see if you agree with our estimation of the song?
