After two years, Azealia Banks has finally freed herself from Interscope Records and is kick-starting her campaign for the long-awaited debut, Broke with Expensive Taste. A week after dropping the track, she’s released an official video for “Heavy Metal and Reflective,” which was directed by Rob Soucy and Nick Ace. In the clip, the Harlemite, dressed in a bedazzled striped jumpsuit, is kidnapped and tied up in the middle of the desert by a crew of masked bikers.

“It’s supposed to be a little Tarantino kinda vibe, and it’s symbolic of me getting off the label,” the 23-year-old recently told Buzzfeed. Now that she’s no longer signed to Interscope/Polydor, Banks also told Buzzfeed that she hopes to release her album on her own label.

Peep the “Heavy Metal and Reflective” video below.
