Azealia Banks Confirms Album Release Date

Published: Saturday 25th Feb 2012 by David

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.

  4. grammy dammy sammy February 25, 2012

    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

    That’s a really cute promo pic, and I wish her well.

  6. Lax February 25, 2012

    There’s room at the top Azealia come right along
    we await you and so do the Charts.

  7. :l February 25, 2012

    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.


    *DEAD* girl are you mad? Nicki Minaj is def a attention seeker *HENCE THAT DREADFUL GRAMMY PERFORMANCE* stay mad she didnt get that grammy you QUEENS was wishing for. LMFAOOO

  9. Justathought (Azealia Banks is coming…) February 25, 2012

    Clearly by my name I’m supporting this chick. Thanks to Kanye for putting me on, she’s very talented. Could care less about how she dresses. I can’t see her clothes while listening to the album lol

  10. Mild February 25, 2012

    i think she’ll be good. she has all summer to get a little fanbase and then by september she shall reign

  11. NZ Bwoi February 25, 2012

    She’s one of the best artists in rap to emerge since the 36 chambers. Im most definatley excited.

  12. QueenSize February 25, 2012

    I looking forward to this potty- mouth. God knows I’m tired of the Barbe s***. Less go-go And more hip hop Banks. Thanks.

  13. Tbozfan10 February 25, 2012

    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. FUCKYOFEELINS February 25, 2012

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

  15. army of queen aaliyah February 25, 2012

    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

  16. KreayshawnStan February 25, 2012

    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.

  17. KreayshawnStan February 25, 2012

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

  18. Some B**** February 25, 2012

    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

  19. RDK February 25, 2012

    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.

  20. nikoyuki February 25, 2012

    love her can’t wait for the album , maybe it will drop on my birthday. and why does this have to be about kim and nicki. really sam.

  21. shion February 25, 2012

    Well she can sing better than alot. Good tone

  22. Mark February 25, 2012

    Her album is going to be double wood.

  23. Trisha24 February 25, 2012

    I have to be honest, I love her flow way better than Nicki. But like @Lax said there room at the top

  24. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare February 26, 2012

    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!

  25. $$$$$ (Dollar$ign$kills) February 26, 2012

    This chick is a breath of fresh air

  26. JER February 26, 2012

    who? i swear yal ride hard these stranger b****** but can’t give Rihanna one f****** prop for nothing

  27. ITSVERYPERRY February 26, 2012

    dont care who she disses or s*** like that, her music is AMAZING!!! like @$$$$$ said, shes a breath of fresh air!!
