Azealia Banks Dazed & Confused Cover: Rapper ‘Smokes’ Condom, Image Banned

Dazed & Confused

A condom. Aquamarine-colored hair. Azealia Banks. That’s what covers the September issue of Dazed & Confused magazine, however, some of the Harlem native’s fans in certain countries will never have access to the provocative image due to it being banned.

The publication announced last week that the new issue, bearing the coverline “Azealia Banks Blows Up,” was prohibited from being sold in seven countries. Early Wednesday (Aug. 15), Dazed & Confused representatives published the 1991 creator’s cover on their official website.

Banks appears “smoking” a bright pink, inflated condom, gives off the middle finger and rocks her mermaid-inspired hair.

Photographer Sharif Hamza shot the scandalous cover and Karen Langley selected the “Van Vogue” rapper’s stylish looks.
