Azealia Banks is on the prowl. The Harlem rapper is the cover vixen for Playboy magazine’s Music Issue.
The cover photo, which was snapped by photographer Elle Von Unwerth, features Banks posing in a leopard-print onesie with a black cat. The magazine’s tagline reads: “Hip-hop’s fierce queen is ready to roar!”
Banks shared the catty photo on her Instagram account on Friday (March 13). In the caption, she wrote, “It’s Catty Noir in the Flesh!!!!” The 23-year-old rapper also said on Twitter that more will be revealed Monday (March 16).
Banks did pose nude for the magazine and doesn’t mind being naked in front of the camera.
“I mean, Naomi [Campbell] did Playboy, right? And she has small tiddies, too,’” she tells Evening Standard. “I don’t think you will see any, like, pink. I don’t know if they will show my clit. They might. I dunno. I don’t mind nudity.”
Playboy magazine’s Music Issue, featuring Azealia Banks, will hit newsstands on March 20.
