Azealia-Banks-Playboy-608x609

*Azealia Banks, who’s been involved in verbal spats with the likes of Iggy Azalea and T.I., will appear on the cover of Playboy for its April music issue, due on newsstands March 20, and also appear in a “nude pictorial” inside.

The 23-year-old confirmed the news on Twitter: “Now I can finally tell you, I’ll be on the COVER of @Playboy’s April Music Issue!! #LeChatNoir”

Azealia said she was inspired by two of her heroes, Grace Jones and Naomi Campbell, both appearing in the adult magazine.

She tweeted: “Grace Jones and Naomi Campbell both did Playboy Covers so you know I was like Hell Yeaaaaaa!!!!!”

The rapper also posted an image of herself in what appears to be a cat mask, crouching behind a leopard-print material.

Playboy has described the shoot by veteran Austrian fashion photographer and director Ellen von Unwerth as a ”nude pictorial” and a ”frisky pictorial that’s sure to break the internet,” in reference to Kim Kardashian West’s nude photoshoot for Paper magazine’s winter issue last year.
