Azealia Banks has said that Kanye West and herself are the "two premier avant gardists in hip hop music".

In an interview with ELLE magazine, the '212' rapper also labelled Kanye West a "genius" and claimed they are "the same person but boy and girl".

She said: "Kanye is a genius. Kanye and I are like the same person but boy and girl. We’re pulling from the same cloud, the same inspiration. We’re both Geminis, we’re the two premier avant gardists in hip hop music. It’s just me and him. I think our consciousnesses are swirling around each other in some weird kind of way…"

Banks recently announced details of a March 2014 UK tour. The rapper will begin the stretch at the O2 Academy in Glasgow, before calling in at Manchester, Birmingham and finishing at London's O2 Academy Brixton for a rescheduled date.

All tickets purchased for the Brixton Academy show, which was scheduled for November 2013 will be valid for the show on March 29.

Banks is due to release her much-delayed 'Broke With Expensive Taste' album in January 2014. It was originally scheduled for release in September 2012 but has since been postponed on several occasions

Azealia Banks will play:

Glasgow O2 Academy (March 25)
Manchester Academy (26)
Birmingham O2 Academy (27)
Brixton O2 Academy (29)
(Rescheduled from November 30, 2013)

Tickets go on sale this Wednesday (October 30) at 10am. To check the availability of Azealia Banks tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0844 858 6765.
