Azealia Banks Is Leaving Universal Music


It looks like Azealia Banks is getting her wish and parting was with Universal Music. The rapper took to Twitter to make the announcement.

To say that she is happy is an understatement.



Azealia Banks has had a feud with Universal for a minute now. Back in January she took to Twitter and begged to be dropped from the label. She typed, “I REALLY should have signed with Sony,” followed by, “Can someone at Sony buy me off of Universal please?? i’m really in hell here.”

She went on to expound on her annoyance posting, “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.” She later added, “I’m literally begging to be dropped from Universal.” Two months later she threatened to leak her own album.

Now hopefully fans can get new music from the mermaid.
