Azealia Banks, born in 1991, is an American rapper and singer, who rose to fame after her music video "212" went viral
in late 2011. Her wild persona and explicit rapping style have put her in direct comparison by critics and bloggers to fellow female rapper Nicki Minaj
; the two even attended the same high school, albeit in different years. After a failed record deal with XL, Azealia signed to Universal in 2012, but since they put her debut album under Development Hell
, she became independent and released her debut album 'Broke With Expensive Taste' out of nowhere in November 2014.
