If rumours are to be believed, hip hop flavour du jour Azealia Banks is collaborating with just about everyone. Even me. Well, not me, but it seems likely that the ’212′ starlet has really and truly partnered with both MIA and rapper Styles P (albeit, separately) on material that may or may not feature on her upcoming debut album, ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’.
Banks tweeted earlier this week that she “has something cooking” with MIA – who, being so fond of the odd manual swear, seems a natural fit for Azealia’s own profanity-prone verbal style.
Staying with the ‘heat’ wordplay, as any rapper worth their thematic salt should, Banks also said she had been “working on some fire” with D-Block rhymer Styles P. I assume that means more ‘creative spark’ than actual arson, but who knows?
As previously reported, ’212′ is due out via Polydor on 25 Mar.
