Azealia Banks is back and she’s better with a new mixtape she dropped late last Thursday, 24th March. After controversially quitting Twitter earlier this month, the Harlem-born rapper made a surprise reappearance to public life with new mixtape Slay-Z. The eight-track tape follows on from the release of debut 1991, first mixtape Fantasea in 2012, which broke Banks’ international career, and her first studio album Broke With Expensive Taste in 2014. Slay-Z includes already-released track The Big Big Beat.
In a since-deleted tweet, Banks alleged that she was prompted to release Slay-Z because her sound engineer was “spitefully leaking” the mixtape, before going on to add “YOU GUYS GET SLAY-Z NOWWWWWW YAAAAAAAY !!!!!”
