Riff: Azealia Banks – “BBD”

Jan 21, 2013

Tits out with yo wife, nigga/I’m bringing out the dyke, in her/XOXO fine, scissor sister, 69/Whip that

from BBD lyrics by Azealia Banks

As a chirping diva Azealia Banks seems to do no wrong. But as a vainglorious brat with a Foxy Brown air about her, she’s just as skilled. “BBD” isn’t about lyrical depth. Not what she’s chasing, here. It’s about delivery – a hype-ass attitude with an ice cold smile.
