Azealia Banks Released From Universal Music


Azealia Banks took to her Twitter to announce that she and her record label, Universal Music has parted ways. After months of practically begging to be dropped from the label the Harlem native rapper’s dreams have finally came true.

Back in January Banks went on a rage against her label claiming they were holding her back from releasing new music. During an interview with The Guardian she said . . .

“I’ve been gratefully riding off of mixtape fumes for the past two years … [But] my fans really need some new music … Universal needs to just hand me over to another label who knows what to do with me … I’m tired of having to consult a group of old white guys about my black girl craft. They don’t even know what they’re listening for or to.”

Banks was previously signed to XL, where she was too in a similar situation. We hope for the best for Azealia and prays her Twitter outburst don’t backfire on her. Ask Angel Haze *sips tea*.
