Azealia Banks has been talking about this debut album of hers for roughly two years, and it’s yet to surface. Every mixtape she’s ever released has been delayed, so why should an actual album be any different? Broke with Expensive Taste is the name of the record, and apparently she’s taken the title to heart and realised that she needs to start trying to make actual money by putting the fucking thing out there.
And so, Azealia Banks’ first full-length LP is apparently coming out in January. That’s 2014, by the way – though I can see why you might be skeptical, considering this thing was supposed to come out in 2012. That being said, I’ll believe it when I see it.
Also, what’s hilarious is that her take on it would be that she’s been making it THE BEST and putting finishing touches on it, but let’s be frank: you can’t polish a turd. I used to really like Azealia and her music – the 1991 EP is FIRE – but if the Fantasea mixtape is anything to go by, there will be one or two killer tracks on this album and then the rest will be like nails on a chalkboard – unlistenable. I mean, have you HEARD ‘Yung Rapunxel’ and ‘ATM Jam’? Atrocious.
World War's 3-10 are INEVITABLE… But can't we just wait until AFTER I drop my album in January ? #reallywannabealiveforthat
