Harlem newcomer Azealia Banks has announced she is pulling out of all her scheduled appearances outside the US this summer, in order to work on her debut album.
The '212' rapper had planned to follow-up her first major outing at this year's Coachella festival with appearances at five musical festivals in the UK.
However, her management team have now revealed those dates will be scrapped in order to free-up the 20-year-old's schedule.
"A decision has been made by her new management that she needs to get back into the studio and invest more time on her forthcoming debut album Broke With Expensive Taste," an official statement read.
Last week the Universal Records signee told fans on Twitter she was heading into the studio with her idol Missy Elliot to record cuts for the record, while in March Banks revealed Kanye West had hooked her up with a new beat.
Azealia is planning to drop a teaser EP titled 1991, before Broke With Expensive Taste appears in stores later this year.
