Azealia Banks Pulls New Single After Producer Denies Permission
Azealia Banks' single "Esta Noche" has been pulled after she failed to secure the producer's permission.
Despite scoring some major accolades with her recent Fantasea mixtape, it looks like all is not right in the world of Azealia Banks. Now, in a recent report from Fact Magazine, it looks like the next single from her aforementioned tape had to be pulled earlier today over a dispute with her producer.
According to the report, Banks had used a 2010 production from DJ/producer Munchi on her recent project, and was preparing to release the track - titled "Esta Noche" - as her next single. According to Munchi, however, Banks and company went forward with utilizing the song in a commercial capacity without ever seeking his consent.
Munchi took to Twitter earlier to blast the Harlem rapper, calling her "a spoiled brat" and refusing her management team's $25,000 offer for the rights to his production.
@azealiabanks no releasing my track, being a spoiled brat, releasing coverwork, release dates before even reaching out is a good look right?— @originalmunchi (@originalmunchi) September 25, 2012
@azealiabanks Tell your camp the deal is off I don't want your fucking $25.000. Fuck off. Go be a puppet bitch to someone else.— @originalmunchi (@originalmunchi) September 25, 2012
Oh damn.. Now you wanna double it, u sure are a pathetic excuse of an artist. NO I DO NOT WANT TO WORK WITH YOU OR YOUR APOLOGY.— @originalmunchi (@originalmunchi) September 25, 2012
No stranger to Twitter herself, Banks responded with a few barbs of her own at Munchi's eexpense and announced her intentions to continue with filming a video for the single.
