Rappers are known for many things, but investing in RRSPs is not one of them. Perhaps that's why so many are completely unwilling to lay down the mic -- while the beats keep calling, so too do the bills. For Azealia Banks, who recently claimed to be taking a hiatus from music, it was inspiration that ultimately brought her back into the fold. Today she has come forward with a new single called "Nirvana," which arrives complete with hard-hitting Spanish bars. Throw in a drill-inspired beat from Onyx and As If Kid, and you've got all the major boxes checked off.
Alternating between languages with a deft flow, Banks seems to be having fun on this one. Technically speaking, she sounds as focused as ever, riding the string-heavy instrumental with typical swagger. It's unclear whether this new direction is a one-off or an indication of future musical developments, but it's always nice to see her in a creative headspace. Check out the bilingual banger right here, and sound off below -- are you happy Banks called "SIKE" on her retirement plans?
