Azealia was raised in Harlem by a single mom. She attended Manhattan’s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art. Azealia Banks’ backstory reads like an alternate version of the musical drama Fame. Only where the main character discovers her sexuality and becomes a rapper. At a young age she had a desire for the limelight. Her mother enrolled her in the school for the performing arts. Her initial focus was on acting and singing. By age 10 she was performing off-Broadway with the Tada! Youth Theater in Lower Manhattan. Banks starred in leading roles over the next several years. This included productions of Rabbit Sense, Sleepover and Heroes. But when she started gravitating toward TV work, the process of auditioning for commercial spots left her unsatisfied with the business. Rap was an appealing alternative.
Azealia Amanda Banks is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and actress. Raised in the Harlem neighbourhood of New York City, she began releasing music through Myspace in 2008. This was before being signed to XL Recordings when she was 17 years old. In 2011, her single “212” went viral and entered several international charts. Banks subsequently signed with Interscope and Polydor Records.
Banks has released two mixtapes (Fantasea in 2012 and Slay-Z in 2016). Also one studio album (Broke with Expensive Taste in 2014), and one extended play (1991 in 2012). Her long-delayed second studio album, Fantasea II: The Second Wave, awaits release. The lead single, “Anna Wintour”, was released in April 2018. In 2017, Banks had her feature-film debut in Love Beats Rhymes. She received positive reviews for her performance as lead actress in Love Beats Rhymes.
