Azealia Banks & Universal Music To Part Ways

Azealia Banks: "I'm about to get out of my deal."

Azealia Banks says she is about to part ways with Universal.

"IM ABOUT TO GET OUT OF MY DEAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THATS THE BIG SURPRISE," she says in a tweet today (July 10). 

Banks revealed unhappiness with her Universal deal several times during her tenure with the company, including a series of January 2014 posts. 

"I REALLY should have signed with Sony," Banks said in a Twitter update. "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...Universal needs to just hand me over to another label who knows what to do with me."

Banks also made it known that she has new music that she feels needs to be heard. 

"My fans really need some new music," she said at the time. "I've been gratefully riding off of mixtape fumes for the past two years, but I'm more ready than ever."
