Azealia Banks Confirms Album Release Date

As one of Rap’s rising stars, Azealia Banks has made quite the splash in recent months.

Courting controversy with a number of Nicki Minaj based remarks and her oh so crass lyrics, Banks’ debut album is without a doubt one of the year’s more anticipated releases.

Consider yourself a fan?

If so, find out when the project hits stores below…

Speaking to Nylon, she announced:

It’s called ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ and it’s out in September.  It’s about a young girl trying to find it.

That girl who’s at the end of her childhood trying to get a job and make some money.She needs to get what she can get! She needs to go out there and show people she knows how to work for it.

We can’t wait to hear it!

Here’s to hoping Banks’ LP is just as provocative as she is, and that she is smart enough to capitalize on the buzz she’s currently receiving.

Because, unlike a certain Lil Kim, Banks is far more than a  foul mouthed attention seeker and we sincerely hope the LP showcases this.

Your thoughts?

    I know two girls who came to win, to conquer and to flyyyy last year.

    This year, it looks like they are coming to bite the dust because their replacements are taking over.

    I’m still on the fence with her, but if this was Iggy Azalea? F*** YES, that girl can’t come soon enough, lol.

    Either way good luck to her, she doesn’t really have a spark to me but she does have some flow.

    just to clarify i luh her flow but her sense of fashion is literally non-existent. she was a walking farce at London Fashion week. it’s interesting hse can also sing better than some “singers” of today lol. her lips are ugly though, sorry.

    … way too soon for an album. she should get out there a lil more

    even though word on the grapevine in this song that she dis nicki ,i really don’t see it in this song,i just someone someone going hard for her piece of that cake,but for some reason i prefer her over that other new chick,but if i feel she is dissing nicki on other tracks to come well my feelings about her will change.

    Lmao at the person saying she came to take someone else’s place. Hopefully she came to carve out her own place. I know you find this hard to believe, but there can be more the *gasp* female rapper at a time. I hope she succeeds. We need more rap chicks in the game.

  14. February 25, 2012 at 8:47 pm

    Excited. I hope it has good production because some of her songs are poorly produced.

    Lmfaoooo @Nicki’s DELUS-Barbz Claiming Not To Like Banks Because She Dissed Gimmick Minaj ?! So Every Nicki Song (Including Features) Can SHADE Kim But Banks Can’t Dislike Minaj ! Hmmm I’m Getting The “Hypocrite” Teas From #teamminaj Hopefully Banks & Iggy Will Replace Gimmick Minaj And Continue To Shade Nicki To OUTSHINE Her Nursery Rhyme “Skills” And Use The Beef To Their Advantage Since Nicki Does It With Kim To Keep Herself Relevant

    Even though this chick went off on a rant against Kreayshawn on Twitter for no reason, I like her flow and her style. Hope she does well and stops with the disses.

    KreayshawnStan says:

    So shes dissed Nicki too? Maybe she only does it for attention. It worked apparently

    Some B**** says:

    F*** this b****! The only reason why people are checkin for this chick is cause she disses the females in the game making moves like Kreayshawn and Nicki Minaj. B**** is thirsty for attention

    RDK says:

    i think she dis nicki for attention and i think it,s nothing personal,i didn’t even take that song seriously in that way to tell you the truth it,s a nice song,i really didn’t see that dis as a big deal,anyways this chick here is trying to get her piece of that bread and i have no prob with that.nicki is in here own lane this chick and other can create there own the game is big enough,but if i think she dis nicki in here other music then you now i am a have to defend,but for now it,s all good.

    Sam, your shade towards Queen Bee is repetitive and, at this point, stale.

    She is Legendary and there is little that you can do at this point but deal. Or, if you prefer, take a firm seat. These are your only two options. *clicks “Revolution”–Lil Kim f. Grace Jones*

    Now, in terms of Azealia Banks–she’s dope! Can’t wait to hear more from her. Diversifying the female rap can only make it more interesting. & she brings the fire!
