Azealia Banks Preps New Material for EP [Update]

Azealia Banks

To hold fans over until her debut drops this fall, Azealia Banks is serving up some new music. The “212” rapper is getting ready to drop an EP named after her salacious single.

In addition to her viral hit, the 212 EP will include new material from the Harlem-born Banks. “Ep will feature two new tracks. Both entitled ‘1991’ & ‘Grand Prix,’” she tweeted.

Banks’ debut Broke with Expensive Taste is due this September on Interscope Records. “The theme is 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 told Nylon. “She needs to get what she can get. She needs to go out there and show people she knows how to work for it.”

Banks, who will perform at Coachella next month, also revealed that she has collaborations with M.I.A., Styles P, and Rita Ora in the works.

UPDATE: Banks has renamed the EP and announced a release date. “My ’1991’ EP will be released on 4/17,” she tweeted.

    Y’all keep provin there ain’t no takin the ghetto out some girls. Hatin, believin rappers enslaved by their own genre flaunt a bankroll, drive a RR Phantom, & use Crystal & Dom for mouthwash, act like they got bank forever-Dreamin. If bein a has-been, bankrupt artist is what they aspire to be ..then rap bling will surely someday see them through. Art transcends genre barriers & that’s what this Young Rap-punzel is doing. 212 Mixes going viral multiplying in recent months inspirin DJ’s in every genre. It aint dance,it aint pop, it aint rap, it’s just provocative & fun. If y’all can’t hear it, you’re not grown enuf yet!

    Why is it always Nicki or Azealia/Iggy? We should all realize that Nicki helped many young female rappers to come out & do their thing! We should be all happy that we are receiving great female rap by different great rappers.
