"There’s death on the horizon,
and I’ll run to behold your sacrifice..."
I never thought this album would see the light of day, I can't wait to listen to it!

Azealia Banks Responds to Criticism Over ‘Whiteface’ Photo
In her latest episode of social media controversy, the Harlem rapper dismissed criticism brought on by a photo she posted on Instagram yesterday (Jan. 2).
The image, which is captioned “Whiteface,” features Banks’s face covered in white makeup, causing many commenters to question her motive. She later explained on Twitter that the look had nothing to do with race. It was actually from a video shoot for the song "Ice Princess" off her Broke With Expensive Taste debut. “This was not white face, this is my Ice Princess makeup. Calm tf down. LOL.”

The full video for Azealia Banks' Wallace
Azealia Banks might have quit Twitter for Lent, but she’s still making waves in a new interview with Playboy.
Reacting to criticism about her frequent Twitter rants and in-your-face musings, Banks says she’s been pigeonholed and stereotyped before firing off (again) at what she finds wrong with this country.
“It’s always about race,” she said. “Lorde can run her mouth and talk shit about all these other bitches, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner.”
Asked about whether she feels at odd with the United States, Banks agreed quickly before deriding “fat white Americans” as a whole.
“I hate everything about this country,” she said. “Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma—that’s really America.”
I LOVE Azealia!!!!!! I get that she's not for everyone but I love her, and I get judged for it because according to some people I can't listen to her cause I'm white -_- she shared a drawing I did of her on Twitter once
No More Drama: Azealia Banks Electrifies at Coachella
Flanked by two backup dancers & a live band, the rapper proved her true musicianship during a 45-minute afternoon set.
Azealia Banks delivered a career-boosting, drama-free set during her afternoon slot at Coachella on Friday (April 10). The Harlem rapper, who's become known more for her online spats and controversy-stirring comments than her music, gave what could be her most electrifying performance to date
Keeping banter to an altogether minimum, the 23-year-old fire-starter stuck to what she does best: delivering an eclectic, thought-provoking showcase of cuts from her debut LP, Broke With Expensive Taste, and 1991 EP. Dressed in a flowing white crop top with denim shorts and heels, she riveted the crowd in Indio, Calif., which swelled as her near-45-minute set sustained its peak and hit few lows.
Flanked by two backup dancers and a live band, Banks kickstarted the show with "Idle Delilah," running through album cuts and fan faves. "Coachella, make some mothaf---in' noise!" she said, pausing to address the audience at the main stage. "I'm so happy to be back."
Now I'm hooked on JFK.
Another video dropped.
I LOVE it!!!
