Azealia Banks and Kanye West definitely have two things in common. They are both performers, and they both are not afraid to hold their tongue. According to Banks their connection goes even deeper than that. In a recent interview with Elle magazine, the Harlem native shares her belief that she and Kanye best represent experimental art in Hip Hop.

“Kanye and I are like the same person but boy and girl. We’re pulling from the same cloud, the same inspiration,” said Banks. “We’re the two premier avant gardists in Hip Hop music. It’s just me and him. I think our consciousnesses are swirling around each other in some weird kind of way.”
Banks first made waves with her single “212″ in 2011. She has since released the EP1991 and mixtape Fantasea. Her debut studio album Broke with Expensive Tastewas originally scheduled for release in 2012. It is now set to drop at the beginning of 2014.
