Must See: Azealia Banks Breaks Down In Tears On Hot 97 / Lashes Iggy Azalea, T.I, Tiny & Industry Race Politics


Since blazing onto the scene with ‘212’, Azealia Banks has become as renown for her outspokenness as she has her music.

Indeed, many would argue that her various social media spats have not only overshadowed her success, but dented it too.

However, today arguably brought an interesting turning point.

Having veered away from the interview circuit in the wake of her numerous beefs, the rapper returned to the media trail today when she stopped by Hot 97.

Never one to hold her tongue, the 23-year-old sounded all the way off on Iggy Azalea, T.I., and Tiny. The New York native also extensively detailed her gripe with industry race politics.

After watching this we’re going to need Ms. Banks to talk more than she types. Because in audio-visual form, a lot of what she saying really resonates. Context, tone, elaboration are key differentials which help colour in many of her points and it really paints her in a new, more positive and enlightened light.

See what we mean below.

Having hit retail with only two days worth of sales to count, the LP is on course to shift 12,000 copies first week Stateside.

And while context is important to stress in any debate about the project’s performance, it’s become immediately apparent that if it’s to succeed it will be a slow burner.

Hoping to light a match under it, Banks has unveiled the video for its latest single ‘Chasing Time’. Check it out below…

Surprise! Azealia Banks To Release ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ Album Tomorrow / Reveals Tracklist, Cover & Stream


Many thought it would never occur, but Azealia Banks finally looks set to release her long-awaited debut album ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’…tomorrow!

Along with the cover and tracklisting, which you can check out above and below, the rapper confirmed the unique roll-out by way of Spotify which have the LP  available to stream now.

The project’s arrival comes after a series of delays dating back to 2012 when its lead single ‘212’ descended and dominated.
