Azealia Banks’ new mixtape, Slay-Z, is here: Banks seems to have revived her Twitter account following a brief hiatus to unexpectedly release the mixtape in its entirety. Banks tweeted that someone had been leaking the songs, adding, “I wanted [the mixtape] to come from my hand.” Rick Ross and Nina Sky both lend their vocal talents—on “Big Talk” and “Riot,” respectively—as Banks moves from one high-energy track to another. The final track, “Along the Coast,” is a prelude to Fantasea II: The Second Wave. An iTunes link is apparently forthcoming, with a music video for “The Big Big Beat” to release alongside the mixtape itself.
