How did Azealia Banks Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on May 31, 1991, in New York City, New York, Azealia Banks was raised in Manhattan with her two sisters. Following her father’s death, however, her mother turned verbally and physically abusive. Due to escalating violence, she moved out of the family home in her early teens, to live with her older sister. Despite her turbulent childhood, however, she had always been interested in musical theatre, singing, and acting.
In her mid-teens, she found herself playing a lead role in a production of the comedy musical, City of Angels. Wanting to pursue an acting career, she went on to audition for several Nickelodeon and TBS shows, albeit without success. Deciding to end her pursuit, she began writing music as a creative outlet.
In 2008, she released her first song, Gimme a Chance under the stage name, Miss Bank$. With a little bit of luck, she eventually landed a deal with XL Recordings after sending the track to DJ Diplo. Due to conflicting ideas, however, she left the label later that year.
From there, she began to share her work on YouTube. After gaining attention online, she came out with her debut single, 212 in 2011. Responsible for her rise to fame, it went on to chart in several countries including the UK, Ireland, Australia, and Belgium. Needless to say, the song had probably earned her a decent amount of earnings.
A year later, she put together her first extended play, 1991. Released through Interscope Records, it boasted four tracks- 212, 1991, Van Vogue, and Liquorice. Met with widespread acclaim, it successfully made it onto the Billboard 200 in the US.
Since then, Banks has also released her debut album, Broke with Expensive Taste. A dance-pop and house rap record, it featured a couple of guest appearances from Lazy Jay and Theophilus London. Not only did it peak at number 30 on the Billboard 200, but it had also charted in Australia, Belgium, Ireland, and the UK.
In addition to what she’s made from the above records, it’s likely that she has also banked a decent amount from headlining tours. In fact, she had just recently traveled for her 2017 North American Tour.
