We haven’t been able to get enough of twenty-year-old Harlem rapper and singer Azealia Banks since we first heard her completely flawless jam-of-all-jams “212”, so it’s no surprise we’re psyched on her latest track “Liquorice,” which she dropped on Tumblr this weekend.

Azealia makes short work of her backing track, Lone’s “Pineapple Crush”, with that dizzying, electric, and completely singular flow that’s so fast and inscrutable you can only pick out her dirtiest lines and then get lost until the next vocal interlude wondering if she really said what you think she said (spoiler alert: she totally did). Long story short: listen to this now.
