Conversation around the Harlem bred rhyme spitter usually revolves around the controversy–mainly Twitter beefs. Lately Azealia Banks is working overtime to put the focus back in the music where it belongs. “Van Vogue” is a fetch video exemplifying why a new artist like herself has already garnered the attention of designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Alexander Wang. In front of a black backdrop Banks prances around spitting lyrics. At one point she’s floating in the water before voguing with black studded lipstick.
On Twitter it seems that Azealia has a slick mouth, which she does. But nothing’s wrong with a feisty rapper. It’s clear in the Harry Rankin directed “Van Vogue” she doesn’t take herself too seriously. It’s simple yet interesting. She’s having fun as the eccentric artist that she is. With Azealia’s release of her 1991 EP, Fantasea mixtape and her new SPIN cover she’s on the path to making a name for herself in hip-hop. Keep on voguing, girl.
