New York rapper Azealia Banks has reached the boiling point and unleashed some fury toward her record label this weekend over not receiving the amount of support she expects.
Banks jumped onto her Twitter page Sunday (January 26) and unloaded her problems with Universal Music.
"Can someone at Sony buy me off of Universal please?? i'm really in hell here.," she tweeted January 26.
"Please Help : Serious Inquiry."
"I would literally give anything to be on XL right now."
"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."
"I'm literally begging to be dropped from Universal." (Azealia Banks' Twitter)
Azealia also offered up a few suggestions Universal could consider regarding her label status.
"Universal needs to just hand me over to another label who knows what to do with me.," Banks added.
"My fans really need some new music. I've been gratefully riding off of mixtape fumes for the past two years but I'm more ready than ever....."
"I had a nice cry, now I'm going to get some wings. #lifeofahumancommodity #universaldoesntcare #theyreatthegrammys #hotwings"
"Drowning my sorrows in blue cheese and ranch dressing." (Azealia Banks' Twitter)
A few months ago, Banks resorted to Twitter to put producer Pharrell Williams on blast.
"The reason ATM jam did poorly is because pharell changed his mind about wanting to be associated with me after he had his lite skin comeback," she tweeted November 12.
"Lite skin n*ggas are funny."
"But f*ck it what's new? Azealia banks having to scrape claw and fight for what she wants. This is normal for me now."
"The minute I feel like I should give a f*ck and stop talking sh*t the good lord reminds me that no one else gives a f*ck and neither shuld I"
"If no one gives a f*ck? Why should I?"
"Giving a f*ck, f*cks sh*t up for me." (Azealia Banks' Twitter)
Their record premiered over the summer and features Pharrell on the hook.
Following a live performance of the song at Glastonbury last week, Azealia Banks has shared the studio version of "ATM JAM", her collaboration with Pharrell, via New York's Hot 97. That song is a single that'll appear on Azealia's very, very long-gestating debut album, Broke With Expensive Taste. "Hey yo, Azealia," announced Hot 97's program director Ebro Darden before playing the song. "When you get poppin', remind them that Hot 97 was the first radio station in the United States to play your record '212.'" When. (Pitchfork)
