Azealia Banks had a breakout year in 2012 based on the strength of her hit “212,” her 1991 EP and her Fantasea mixtape. With her debut album Broke With Expensive Taste slated for an early 2013 release, the Harlemite told Hypetrak TV that she wants to drop two LPs next year and subsequently duck out of the game.
“If I have things my way, if the universe like, allows me to do things the way I want to do them, I want to get two albums out in 2013. Not necessarily take a break, but do some more sound research and come up with a different style. You know what I mean?” she said. “I’d eventually like to stop rapping. That’s just the honest truth. One day I don’t want to rap anymore. Just because I think it’s – it’s easy, but I think it’s kind of tacky. I think it’s very unlady like. I like it. But I think I’m going to get tired of it. So yeah, I would like to get two albums out.”
