Azealia Banks has signed her latest management deal, this time with the man who looks after Lady Gaga.

The rapper – who earlier this week announced she was delaying her new EP '1991' – will now be represented by Troy Carter, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Yesterday (April 18), Banks took to Twitter to announce the change of management and revealed she had secured a "bigger budget", meaning that she now has "a whole new set of resources to take advantage of".

She added:

We're gonna vamp this up and make it official.. No more ghetto mixes and closet recording.. I have a budget now!


Banks' debut album is scheduled for release in September on Interscope. She signed to Universal Music in January after parting ways with British indie label XL Recordings, which is home to Adele, after citing conflicting creative visions.
