Based off the name alone, you might think Azalia Banks’ new track “Hood B*tch” would be a ratchet assault over some Lex Luger frenzy. But, if you’ve followed Harlem’s new femme fatale long enough, you should be well aware that her style is much more atypical than the average. Resurrecting the bubblegum disco ditty “Baby We’re Gonna Love Tonight” from ’80s underdogs Lime, Banks keeps her flavor in tact by styling all over the potential club killer with her relentless flow and innocent showboating.
Not everyone’s going to enjoy this, but those that do are probably having more fun.
