The Second Wave is coming.

After feuding with Cardi B, Remy Ma, and Joe Budden, Azealia Banks is starting off 2018 with an album announcement.

The Harlem rapper has partnered with independent label Entertainment One and is set to release Fantasea II: The Second Wave, the sequel to her 2012 mixtape, in March. “Okay guys,” she wrote on Instagram. “so Fantasea Two the second wave is going to be released via @entertainmentone in March of 2018.”

Prior to announcing the project, Banks teased the title with “charcoal blue” hair. “Mermaid season has officially begun,” she wrote. “#F2 the sea queen is back !”


Yesterday, Banks also asked her fans if they would be willing to pitch in towards her $100,000 goal. “I wonder how much money I can raise in one of those kick starter things,” she wrote. “I just spent my entire day locking loaaads of things in. Would you guys throw down for this ? I really want to make this project a reality . And where there’s a will there’s a way!! Let me figure out a way to do this .. even if I get half ! I will be good!”


Since the original Fantasea, Azalea released her debut album Broke With Expensive Taste in 2014 and her Slay-Z mixtape in 2016.

Last year, Banks said she was hoping JAY-Z would release The Second Wave on TIDAL. “If I can manage to get signed by JAY-Z, have him pickup Slay-Z (a no brainer), release the iggy collab, get Kanye to give me this beat (for free lol), release Fantasea II: The Second Wave on TIDAL (so fitting), and get Lionsgate to release CoCo, all my little rap bitch dreams will be complete,” she wrote. “I’ll sign a gag order I don’t care lol. I want to sign with JAY-Z.”
