Lana Del Rey, the potty-mouthed downer pop princess seemingly hellbent on, “simultaneously demanding and demeaning our attention,” says she loves Brooklyn and Harlem rap. In an interview with MTV, the chilly singer asked,

It’s really great!
What the fuck? Right on?! Flatbush Zombies’ new video, for remarkably titled “Thug Waffle,” is dark, stoned and great. Watch it here now, and see Del Rey play her television debut on SNL this Saturday night, January 14th on NBC.
