Azealia Banks Weighs In On GaGa Management Drama / Blames ‘Egos’

 Azealia Banks Weighs In On GaGa Management Drama / Blames Egos

You may not know it, but the man in the picture above is one of Pop’s music most powerful entities.

Yes, as the driving force behind Lady GaGa‘s career Troy Carter‘s influence in the industry- though rarely publicized- has made him ‘the one to go to’ for any hoping to recreate GaGa’s success.

In 2009 there was Nicki Minaj, who reportedly called on Carter to manage her alongside then mentor Diddy in a partnership of sorts. A partnership, that failed to come to fruition for reasons still unknown.

Then came Azealia Banks, who succeeded in landing a deal with Troy earlier this year. However, as reported here yesterday, that deal ended just as quickly as it started, leaving  Banks without a manager.

Now she was spoken on the matter, hinting that ‘egos’ were to blame for the split.

Full story below…

She tweeted:

 

 

In response to her ‘inflammatory’ tweets, some Twitter users responded with:

Lol @ Azealia Banks ruining her career so early in the game.

Azealia Banks is annoying me. she has so much potential and such good songs and stage presence etc yet shes just SO unprofessional

Azealia Banks moaning on here about managers and how egotistical they are. She was dropped by Lady Gaga’s manager…how bad must she be?

Yo, someone tell Azealia Banks to chill first then holla at me. Does she not know those tweets about female mgmt only can get her sued?

Azealia Banks is anti-bullshit, thats why I love her.

Update:

In response to this article, Azealia has confirmed that the ‘short bald man’ she referred to in Tweet 2 was not Troy Carter.

    Everyone can hate on Azealia all they want .. saying shes unprofessional but I’m gonna call it REAL. Shes keeping it REAL with everyone. Whether it’s annoying to you or not _ your still gonna read up on her. Face it .. anybody who hates her is still paying attention to her. Love Azealia, and her great music allows her to act any type of way she wants in my eyes as long as shes keeping it 100. Representing New York to the fulllest. Never sell out my b**** <3

    so true. The only people that would call out are the people on the other side of the fence who want to keep everyone in the dark about the realities of the industry.

    I bet those tweets above (keykey ‏@WeLoveCaolan ect) are from people who work for this Troy Carter guy.

    Who is she again? I never heard of her before. Has she had any albums or videos in the past?

    Azealia is as real as they come. The blogs respect her ’cause she calls s*** out when she sees it instead of letting it build up. I respect her for that.

    …he got a Caesar?

    Too much drama, not enough results. How many people is she gonna beef with before she starts earning all this drama? I know Kanye plucked her up and he’s as big as a drama queen as they come but he’s earned his ego, dude makes amazing songs.

    I have to say I agree with the majority of response tweets, she’s shooting herself in the foot before she’s even stepped fully into the game.

    She doesn’t really need a manager right now. All of the major things that she’s done so far, wasn’t set up by Troy anyway.

    What I LOVE about Azealia is her swag, she’s hood, she stands up for herself, she’s not a people pleasers. All these other bitches that are out there to get youtube likes and s***…

    On the other hand I really hate how she has very little success but carries on like everybody owes her something.

    But she’s talented she just needs more exposure

    I CAN BE THE ANSWER!!!!
    We are a proud family from Harlem. There are decades of GR8 artist from Harlem who suffered egregiously. Azealia’s frustrations speak volumes to the voiceless giants who dare not complained.
