Azealia Banks surprise releases long-awaited debut album

'Broke With Expensive Taste' has finally come out

Azealia Banks has released her long-awaited debut album.

The rapper was expected to put out ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ in March 2014. The release had been pushed back several times since Banks broke through to the mainstream with her track ‘212’ in 2011. However, as of this evening (November 6), fans can buy the LP on iTunes. Banks shared an Instagram of the artwork earlier today, which you can see below:
