Azealia Banks worth $3Million before debut album
With her suggestive provocative lyrics and spitfire delivery Azealia Banks has made a name for herself and is highly regarded by critics as one of the best female rappers out. She is worth an estimated $3 million before her debut album drops this fall. Her song 212 was accompanied by a low budget video filmed by a friend in her hometown of Harlem New York. The video became an instant sensation on youtube getting over 50 million views to date. She garnered high profile fans from Kanye West to legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld. GQ magazine did an article on the up and coming rapper in April 2012 predicting her career would sky rocket and it definitely has. In 2012 she signed a record deal with Universal Music. The rapper was crowned Number One in NME’s Cool List last year. She is scheduled to drop her debut album this year entitled Broke With Expensive Taste featuring production from Pharrell and Lazy Jay who produced 212. She has dropped several singles including Yung Rapunxel and ATM Jam which she performed at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival in England. She also received a BET Award nomination this year. Her music has been received well by critics and fans but her spitfire lyrics are not as controversial as her celebrity feuds. (x)
