The cover features New York underground rapper Azealia Banks smoking a blown up condom like a cigar. The caption reads “Azealia Banks Blows Up.”

Dazed & Confused created hype around the controversy by tweeting last week that the cover had already been banned. The magazine finally released the image this morning.

As tipped (no pun intended), the Sharif Hamza-shot cover features Banks posing with an inflated bright pink condom between her lips like an oversized blunt.
