New York rapper Azealia Banks is letting people realize how much your past can impact your present. The hip-hop diva has hit up social media to speak out on her current label situation.

Banks went to Instagram Live Wednesday (December 6) and admitted a 2015 incident has scared potential record deals away.

In March, Banks took a plea deal in her boob-biting case to avoid a lengthy trial.

Banks, 25, copped to third-degree assault, the top count against her, in exchange for a deferred ​no-jail ​sentence for a bizarre altercation at​​ Up & Down nightclub in December 2015. The combustible rapper allegedly cursed out a female bouncer ​who didn’t recognize her, then punched and bit her when the woman tossed her from the Chelsea nightspot. (Page Six)

Recently, Azealia revealed the possibility of securing a record deal.


A couple months ago, Banks went the extra mile and crowned herself one of the best active rappers.
