The cover of Azealia Banks upcoming nude photoshoot for Playboy magazine has been revealed

Banks will appear on the cover of the April issue of the long-running adult magazine, shot by acclaimed photographer Ellen Von Unwerth. The issue will be available Stateside from March 20.

In the cover, posted by the rapper on Instagram overnight, Banks is seen with a black cat on her head and dressed in leopard print.

Playboy have called the shoot a “frisky pictorial that’s sure to break the Internet”. A teaser image has been released, which sees a scantily clad Banks sporting a cat mask.

Earlier this year Banks and Lupe Fiasco became involved in a heated exchange via Twitter. The disagreement first occurred when Banks seemingly took offence at a Fiasco tweet telling “young crazy emotional b***hes” to “chill da f**k out”. Banks responded by labelling Fiasco as a has-been and stating that her added publicity would make him more “relevant” than he’s been in years.

The 23-year-old Harlem rapper has also clashed with Iggy Azalea numerous times in recent months, criticising the Australian rapper for not commenting on the protests in Ferguson and New York following the deaths of Brown and Eric Garner.
