Azealia Banks Readies ‘Fantastic’ Mixtape

Azealia Banks

It’s going to be a Fantastic summer for fans of Azealia Banks. Prior to releasing her debut album this fall, the “212″ rapper will drop an EP and a mixtape.

The Fantastic project is due this summer along with her 1991 EP. “I’ve been working on SOOOOO MUCH FLY SHIT. I have enough material to drop a mix tape before my album! YAY!” tweeted the 20-year-old Banks. “So y’all will be getting, 1991 EP this month, the ‘FANTASTIC’ mixtape for the summer, and ‘Broke With Expensive Taste,’ in the Fall!”

The mixtape’s first single, “Jumanji,” will debut on Friday, May 11. She is also reshooting the video for “Liquorice,” which was originally directed by Thierry Mugler designer Nicola Formicetti.

“For everyone wondering about the ‘Liquorice’ video… I’m reshooting it AGAIN… With RANKIN! .. NEXT WEEK! YAYYYYY… Gotta get it right!” she told her followers.

Her full-length debut Broke With Expensive Taste is due this September on Interscope Records.

    @Yeah, I really like Azealia but I want her to stop being so disrespectful. She has offended Nicki Minaj, Lil Kim, T.I. Iggy Azealia and even Kreayshawn.. WTF?

    She must be ridiculously insecure to keep going at all these people.. -_-

    @Aimanos, Also, Missy Elliot is best friends with Lil’ Kim… so I wont be suprised if Missy decides to not work with Azealia for this (unless the collab has already be done).

    @Aimanos, “Best Friends”? Tichina Arnold and Tisha Campbell are best friends. As in apart of each other’s Lives on a regular basis. I thought that used to be Mary J’s title. Kim’s best friend is the one she went to jail with. Don’t confuse industry friendship with real friendship.

    Artists are friends with each others as a means of keeping their brands close. Like Katy Perry and Rihanna. They not real friends but appearing friendly leaves the door open to collaboration. They may see each other at industry events and hang out or vacation together so the paparazzi can see but they are not actual best friends. They’re not even friends really. They’re friendly. Period.

    something about her really intrigues me. People always thrown names around like Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Kim and Missy Elliott when they talk about Azealia but her style and attitude kind of remind me of Kid Sister…who happens to be one of my favorite female rappers.

    I was feeling her until she started popping off with this beef with Kim..this is your fifth beef in less than a year and u dont even have an album out, you need to chill Banks. These new artist have the game twisted thinking its okay to come in dissing those that came before them and picking beefs with everyone to get a little attention. Not cool, you aint that hot. I’ll stick with Iggy!!
