New York rapper Azealia Banks is ready to prove how fed up she is with her label and has announced a deadline for when she will leak the delayed Broke With Expensive Taste album.
Banks jumped onto her Twitter page to make the unexpected threat this week.
"Album leaks starting April 15th.," Azealia tweeted March 20. (Azealia Banks' Twitter)
According to reports, she recently had some album promotion tour dates pushed back.
The news comes after Banks' UK tour dates were postponed from September 2014 to December 2014 - not exactly a good sign. The shows were supposed to be in support of Broke With Expensive Taste, which was last confirmed to be released April 16. (Gigwise)
Banks unleashed some fury toward Universal Music back in January.
"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)
