Azealia Banks Begging to Be Dropped from Universal

Posted by - 10:57 AM on 01/27/14
Azealia Banks really wants to be dropped from her label, Universal Music. A series of tweets explaining why have been collected over at Stereogum.
I'm literally begging to be dropped from Universal. 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.

Considering all her bad publicity since 212 I'm surprised they haven't. She also hasn't put out a good sonng in a while.

If you want to be on a decent sized label with a good push, chances are you'll have to deal with "old white guys". No real way around it.

She is without a doubt the biggest whiner in the music industry. Can't stand her public persona.

Sorry, but I hate seeing artists complain about this kind of thing. Those "old white dudes" are pouring cash into your craft to make it into a profitable reality. If you're begging to be dropped, maybe you shouldn't have signed in the first place.

I actually feel kind of bad for her. There was a lot of hype surrounding her after she released 1991, then a disappointing single or two, then it seems like the public, brash as they are, collectively turned their backs on her. Strike of misfortune, I'd say. I can't imagine how shitty it must feel to have creative control stripped from you.
