Azealia Banks will appear on the cover of Playboy and in a nude pictorial in the April 2015 issue of the magazine. The badass rapper from Harlem poses, according to editors, in a “frisky pictorial that’s sure to break the Internet.” In addition to the photo spread, Rob Tannebaum talks to Banks in a no-holds-barred interview.

So, that should be fun.

Here’s a teaser pic from the shoot by photographer Ellen Von Unwerth.
