Azealia Banks Embraces Surrealism And The 90’s In “Chasing Time” Video

If you were to mix Missy Elliott’s “Supa Dupa Fly” with Janet Jackson’s “Feedback”, and sprinkle in some TLC circa the Fanmail era, you would probably get something close to Harlem rapper Azealia Bank’s latest video for her single, “Chasing Time”. Azealia dances in sync with male dancers in oversized puffy outfits sporting blacked out Air Force ones. She nods to her ballroom roots and ties to the fashion world, embracing her fascination with 1990’s hip-hop and internet iconography. Trippy is an understament for her latest creation. With each new project, Banks manages to draw from the past and create something that uniquely speaks to the present.
