Azealia Banks recently revealed that her debut album will be titled 'Broke With Expensive Taste' and released in September.

The rapper told Nylon Magazine that the album's lyrical theme would be "a young girl trying to find it".

When asked what she meant by ''find it'', Banks said: "Success! Herself! Her path! The young girl trying to make it! That girl who's at the end of her childhood trying to get a job and make some money, you know? She needs to get what she can get! She needs to go out there and show people she knows how to work for it."

The New York rapper played a sold out show at London's Heaven venue last night (February 27). On Twitter she said of the gig: "I had sooooo much fun at Heaven last night! That show was such a success !"

Azealia Banks will release her debut EP, '212', on March 25 and tour the UK in support of 'Broke With Expensive Taste' in September. She plays 11 shows on the run, which begin at Manchester's Club Academy on September and continue until October 12 when she headlines London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire.
