Less than two months since Azealia Banks signed a management deal with Troy Carter (Lady Gaga‘s manager), the rapper and the mogul have gone their separate ways. Carter released a statement to Billboard notifying them that she no longer represents Banks.
“I can confirm that I ended the business relationship with Azealia last month on very amicable terms,” said Carter. “She’s incredibly talented and I wish her nothing short of an amazing career.”
Thank God their split wasn’t over beef… Hopefully she’ll have a manager soon, but for now, she’s freelance. — Speaking of beef, Iggy Azalea spills tea on the origin of her & Azealia‘s.
Iggy Azalea sat down with Hot 103 Jamz to talk about the origin of her beef with Azealia Banks, and how the tweets took a turn.
“It actually started at CMJ Music Festival back in September when she went on Twitter and said, ‘I’m next level, I had a song about being a Barbie before Nicki Minaj had a song about being a Barbie. Here’s the link to my song. And fuck Iggy Azalea, I had a song called ‘P***y’ before she ever did. Here’s a link to my song. It’s better.”
“And then I wrote on Twitter, the best thing you can be is humble, because it’s not about who did it first; it’s about who did it better. And then she wrote back to me and said, ‘Beef!’ I was like, not really girl. Not really. It’s not that deep. Sot hen after that, she wrote on Twitter, ‘Fuck white girls. They are privileged and shouldn’t be allowed to rap, because rap is black culture’ and all this other crap. Then, it was like, what does ignorant art even mean anyway? Music is not art. Music is culture. That doesn’t even make any sense. Then, it was quiet until I got on the cover of XXL and it became me being racist.”
Wow, that’s a lot… Hopefully they get it together, I’d love to see a 2012 collaboration. Maybe a remake of “Ladies Night”?
