Azealia Banks has largely remained out of the spotlight in 2016, after her Twitter account was suspended for (among other things) comments and faced numerous backlash for supporting Donald Trump (she’s since rescinded that endorsement) and levying racist and homophobic comments at ZAYN.
However, the Harlem musician revealed that she has made a major move in her career: aligning herself with the RZA.
In a Facebook message left October 9th, Banks revealed that she was signing a record deal with the Wu-Tang Clan member. The two have worked together on Coco, an upcoming musical drama film that is directed by RZA, and following the experience together they have now teamed up musically.
just smiling, chilling, summoning coinesha .
I’m FINALLY getting a record deal :) .
I’m signing with RZA.
He and I have an excellent work chemistry. Filming coco with him was loads of fun!! Now I get to make music with him!!!
Business and Pleasure is imminent.
What comes from this new union remains to be seen. However, hopefully this is a move in the right direction for Banks and her career.
