Azealia Banks has postponed her UK tour, set to take place later this month.

The rapper was due to perform four UK dates in Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester and London at the end of March but has now postponed all of the dates, bar Birmingham, until September. There is currently no rescheduled date for the Birmingham gig. The March dates were originally due to take place in November 2013.

Earlier this year Banks slated her label Universal on Twitter, begging another label to get her out of the contract and expressing regret and not having signed with Sony. The New York rapper sent an initial tweet declaring: "I REALLY should have signed with Sony." She quickly followed this up by asking: "Can someone at Sony buy me off of Universal please?? i'm really in hell here."

Banks' much-delayed debut album 'Broke With Expensive Taste' is expected to be released later this month though there is still no official release date. It was originally scheduled for release in September 2012 but has since been postponed on several occasions.

Azealia Banks will play:

Glasgow O2 Academy (September 15)
Manchester Academy 1 (18)
London O2 Academy Brixton (19)
