Azealia Banks and Nicki Minaj

Azealia Banks Turns Down Offer to Tour with Nicki Minaj

After making a name for herself with her breakout single “212,” 1991 EP, and Fantasea mixtape, Azealia Banks has gained the attention of fellow femcee Nicki Minaj, who reportedly invited her to join her “Pink Friday” arena tour.

However, the new face of T by Alexander Wang had to regrettably decline the offer as she is still recording her Intercope Records debut Broke with Expensive Taste. “I got invited to tour with Nicki Minaj in Europe but I can’t go because I have to finish my album during that time,” tweeted Banks.

Nicki previously announced that she will be joined by her Young Money labelmate Tyga and British singer Misha B when her tour returns to the U.K. in the fall.

“I can’t wait to blow the stage out bigger and better and crazier,” teased the “Starships” hitmaker. “I promise you this is gonna be one for the books.”

Nicki is scheduled to wrap the North American leg of her “Pink Friday” tour on August 12 in Vancouver.
