Azealia Banks Performs “The Big Beat” On “Good Day New York”

Not gonna lie, folks. I had several chicken jokes in store for you, but I’m going to save them for a better time. And we all know a better time will eventually arrive when it comes to our beloved Azealia Banks.

You either hate her, love her, or are confused as to what planet she’s actually from. However, the general consensus is that Azealia Banks makes damn good Hip Hop music. With that being said, the “Ice Princess” chocolateer graced the “Good Day New York” stage to perform “The Big Beat,” pulled from last year’s mixtape, “Slay-Z.”

Curious as to how that went down? Keep readings, my sugars.

Okay, not bad, right? Now here’s my main problem with watching this performance. Are you ready for it? I cringed.

I didn’t cringe because her performance sucked. On the contrary, Azealia Banks is not a boring performer by any stretch. I cringed because at this point in the game, the girl should be doing so much better than a crimson curtain backdrop with two hit or miss backup dancers. I was one of the ones who rooted for this girl to succeed. Of course, that was prior to the whole “tar baby” tirade on Twitter during the height of her hysteria. Is it possible for someone like Azealia to make a comeback? Unfortunately, there is.

Chicken-slaying and self-hate aside, you have to remember who our president is. If he can be as belligerent as possible and sit on the highest seat in America, then why can’t Azealia see mainstream success? I mean, I’m not personally about to buy it. I’m the cousin who came to the cookout to be nosy and watch. The real question becomes…

Are You?
