Azealia Banks Blasts Record Label, Confirms Exit, & Launches Own Imprint

Published: Wednesday 1st Aug 2018 by Sam

Azealia Banks continues to polarize the public with her antics. However, one thing is a cert – she’s powering ahead on her own.

After being dropped from Interscope Records and releasing debut ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ as an indie offering, the rapper recently inked a deal with EOne for the release of new album ‘Fantasea II.’

However, perhaps deterred by the performance (or lack-thereof of the project’s preceding singles), Banks has…well…bounced. And, as predicted, not without

More optimistically, she revealed that she’s launching her own imprint from where her music will be released henceforth:


On the merit of her talent, we wish her the best.

But the reality is that she needs to “launch” a whole new persona if anything she does is going to work. And even then, she’s burnt so many bridges that one has to wonder how viable even her best material will be at this juncture.

Your thoughts?

    She didn’t lie about eOne on the music side Letoya Luckett released an solid album on that label and no one barely knew about it cause they didn’t promote along with Faith Evans and a few others who still did everything out of their own pockets 🙄 what’s the purpose of that label🤷🏿‍♂️ Anyways good luck to Azealia lol

      EOne is a distribution company, not promotions. A lot of artists will sign distro deals with them because they can get their music out to stores and outlets fast and cheap. But EOne is definitely in the business of promoting these artists. That’s where a lot of the artists miss the mark, because they’re expecting that promotion, but EOne is just banking on the artists’ name to get the music into stores. Anyone who signs with EOne is expected to have their own promo and marketing strategies to begin with.

      Just an inside tip from an artist who’s been in and around these labels…

    She could’ve used this embarrassment to her advantage like Miley did.

    She’s been well-known now since 2011 and always in the news for everything but her music. I don’t think she’s ever going to happen but who knows? Maybe she will be like Sia and finally pop when she’s older.

    Luckily her fans will purchase the music no matter what, I’ll continue to pass on it!!

    The truth is, Azealia is very talented and she knows it. She has it in her to be great but she does not have the maturity or business skills to manuever appropriately in this business. I applaud her determination, creativity, and will to fight for her career. She knows that she has something unique and anyone can take her spot. She has nothing else to fall back on but her skills as a writer and singer. If she makes this whole thing work she will get the last laugh. I personally love her music.
