Azealia Banks is banking on Lady Gaga’s manager to help further her career. The Harlem rapper has hired music executive Troy Carter to represent her.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the “212” hitmaker recently split from her old management and signed with Carter’s Atom Factory, whose clients include Mindless Behavior and Greyson Chance.

“I just switched management.. Literally like three days ago, and have a whole new set of resources to take advantage of,” tweeted Banks. “We’re gonna vamp this up and make it official.. No more ghetto mixes and closet recording.. I have a budget now!”

Still buzzing from her well-received Coachella performance, the 20-year-old dynamo is prepping her album Broke With Expensive Taste for a September release on Interscope Records. She was previously signed to XL Recordings, but split with the label over creative differences.

Prior to her debut, she will drop the EP 1991 featuring her salacious single “212” as well as new material including “Grand Prix.” The project has been pushed back from its April 17 release date as a result of her new management.
