Azealia Banks Retires From Music

Published: Sunday 1st Dec 2019 by David

To the general public, Azealia Banks is a foul-mouthed rapper most known for feuding with her peers.

To the creatively inclined, the controversial artist is a boundary-pushing artiste responsible for some of the most innovative pieces of work to be launched in the last ten years.

Today, she has announced that she is to retire from music.

Her announcement below….

The entertainer feels that the ideas develops as an independent artist are mined by the music industry to add edge, character and charisma to the Pop stars it champions.

She also revealed that she is offended by the fact that she is compared to entertainers like Iggy Azalea and Tinashe who, as far as she sees it, are beneath her…at least as far as talent and innovation are concerned.

Banks was ushered into the business by the British arm of the music industry when she was discovered by Diplo and XL Recordings in 2008 aged 17.

Following her split from the label the musician found a friend in Adele producer Paul Epworth and unleashed her breakout tune ‘212′ in the September of 2011 and later signed to Polydor and Interscope Records…home to Lady Gaga and her then-friend Lana Del Rey.

After splitting with the label and manager Troy Taylor the rapper launched a career as an independent musician and launched her debut album, ‘Broke with Expensive Taste‘, on November 7th 2014.

The album, and its tracks, have been streamed over 150 million times to date.

    Bye H03, the public ain’t here for your antics and attention seeking by starting drama. Go back to your welfare section 8 projects. Iggy & tinashe are way above your level.

    Her music doesn’t reflect her music, at all. All I hear is talk about how talented she is, but I have yet to hear any of it on the sound waves.

  12. LMAO December 1, 2019

    • Fanciest BISH December 1, 2019

      Tinashe and impact on the same sentence… shut up Tinashe stan.

  16. No Glory December 1, 2019

    I thought she already retired?

    I love my black women, though. Us men wouldn’t be here without you all!

  17. Fanciest BISH December 1, 2019

    How about she retire from life?

    I see the original trolls have returned LB and Skid Markp111… I guess it was the same creature all these years but whatever

    Ms Banks isn’t known for her music anyway..

  18. #TheTruth December 1, 2019

    When did her career start in the first place to talk about retirement ?!
    Her career is internationally local, nobody knows her and it will clearly stay this way. You won’t be missed.

    She will be back. She has music in her soul and bones.. she can’t live without being creative in music. This way or another.. at least she released over 50 songs to enjoy until she comes back to music again. But I think we will not wait for her for too long.. lol probably end of 2020.

  21. Sinds December 1, 2019

    You can be the most talented person in the world but if no one gets along with you and you behave like an asshole then it’s the end of your career.
    Bye Azalea no one is gonna miss you at least not over here.

  22. Ustilldownforme December 1, 2019

    I still don’t know her

  23. SMH December 1, 2019

    Ha ha, guess supporting trump didn’t help her the way she thought it would. maybe she should give kanye a call, he can teach her how to be a successful c00n.

  25. Kash Doll December 1, 2019

    About timeeeee, she’s always so negative & only makes herself relevant by bashing others. She won’t be missed ?

  26. Jimmy Cricket December 2, 2019

    Extremely talented lady, awful at PR. It’s a shame she constantly alienates huge chunks of her audience with her non-musical actions, because her music actually is dope.

    You can’t constantly complain about “the gays” and be successful at making club music though… Any personal feelings aside, it’s just bad business.

  27. Jay December 3, 2019

    I doubt shes really retiring. She can say offensive things because of trolls on the internet but you cant just group people together and place blame and fault at people. She needs to look inside and find that stronger part of herself that spark she used to have. She shoulda been made it if she was t her own worst enemy she would be way bigger
