Azealia Banks - 'Broke With Expensive Taste' (February 12)
After breaking out with the irresistible "212," working with Kanye West and Lady Gaga, and dropping one of 2012's most entertaining mix tapes with "Fantasea," the sassy, foul-mouthed rapper finally makes her official debut this winter. Like her previous work, "Broke" will once again crunch together more dance beats and razor-sharp lyrics, this time under the eye of Adele producer Paul Epworth. Can she live up to the hype?
