Despite dropping one of last year's most daring, dynamic records in her long-delayed Broke With Expensive Taste, New York rapper Azealia Banks has most frequently seen herself in the news for non-musical reasons. Now, she's trying to put an end to that reputation. Banks announced over the weekend that she would be taking a break from Twitter for the remainder of the Christian holiday Lent. Until the first weekend in April, the "212" rapper will be off of the social network--although she said she'll still be checking Instagram. According to Banks, she needs this time to "give my mind a break."
