Azealia Banks Wants To Drop Two Albums In 2013, Retire From Rap

Azealia Banks explains how she wants 2013 to take shape.

Azealia Banks had a breakout year in 2012 based on the strength of her hit "212," her 1991 EP and her Fantasea mixtape. With her debut album Broke With Expensive Taste slated for an early 2013 release, the Harlemite told Hypetrak TV that she wants to drop two LPs next year and subsequently duck out of the game.

“If I have things my way, if the universe like, allows me to do things the way I want to do them, I want to get two albums out in 2013. Not necessarily take a break, but do some more sound research and come up with a different style. You know what I mean?" she said. "I’d eventually like to stop rapping. That’s just the honest truth. One day I don’t want to rap anymore. Just because I think it’s - it's easy, but I think it’s kind of tacky. I think it’s very unlady like. I like it. But I think I’m going to get tired of it. So yeah, I would like to get two albums out.”

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    man when i heard 212 i was so impressed, song is just straight dope af. and i wanna support her being from harlem and all, but damn she says some stupid ass shit. If she thinks bitches rapping is tacky she should give Tia London a listen. Extremely classy and a nice rapper.
