Business News Deals Management & Funding

Azealia Banks

Buzzy rapper Azealia Banks has signed a new deal with Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter, it has been announced.

The first sign that something was happening came on Tuesday, when she told fans via Twitter that her new EP, ‘1991’, would not be released that day as planned. She wrote: “For all you asking, ‘1991’ is getting delayed… AGAIN. I just switched management. Literally like three days ago, and have a whole new set of resources to take advantage of. We’re gonna vamp this up and make it official. No more ghetto mixes and closet recording. I have a budget now!”

Then yesterday it was confirmed that she is working with Carter’s Atom Factory, which as well as Gaga looks after thirteen year old popster Mindless Behavior and Grayson Chance. Banks’ debut album, ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’, is still scheduled for release via Universal/Interscope in September.
