Azealia Banks vs. Management
When: June 2012
What Happened: Banks has stated in the past that her former relationship with XL Records—specifically label founder Richard Russell— wasn’t the ideal situation. When she moved on to signing with Lady Gaga’s manager Troy Carter, it was a big opportunity to turn her into a superstar. Unfortunately, after just seven weeks, Banks parted ways with Carter because he was on his “ego shit.” Before she shut down her Twitter account, she shared her thoughts on male management.
I know who you are yes…You short bald man…I know you planted these false stories.
Guess what?: I’m still not going to let you manage me again. I’ve dealt with enough cyber bullying to see right thru this.
I will definitely be working BY MYSELF and saving MY 20% On management commissions while I avoid you sharks in the water….
I really want a female manager. Women are just so much smarter.
I just want a really hardcore woman…Or a really gay man as my manager…You other niggas have WAY too much ego sh-t with y’all.
I just need a lady with some really intimidating glasses and a crazy shoe game to just stomp all you phonies out!
Lol I’m dead serious tho…About not hiring another male manager. The next manager you all see will be the kuniest kunt ever.
Complex says: Maybe she should try working with Deb Antney?
