Banks is back with surprise new eight-track mixtape Slay-Z

Azealia Banks is back. After controversially quitting Twitter earlier this month, the Harlem-born rapper made a surprise reapparance to public life with new mixtape Slay-Z, which she released for free late on Thursday night. The eight-track tape follows on from the release of debut 1991, first mixtape Fantasea in 2012, which broke Banks' international career, and her first studio album Broke With Expensive Taste in 2014. Slay-Z includes already-released track The Big Big Beat

In a since-deleted tweet, Banks alleged that she was prompted to release Slay-Z because her sound engineer was "spitefully leaking" the mixtape, before going on to add "YOU GUYS GET SLAY-Z NOWWWWWW YAAAAAAAY !!!!!"

Yay indeed. You can listen to Slay-Z below.
