Oops, she did it again.
A little over a year ago, 376 days to be exact, Azealia Banks excitedly tweeted that she was free from her contract with Universal Music.
It looks like Ms. Banks wants to keep with tradition because she’s back on the market after parting ways with Prospect Park. The label handled her surprise release of Broke with Expensive Taste as well as her impressive videos for “Wallace” "Ice Princess" and "Chasing Time."
Based on the lack of Twitter ranting and drama surrounding this announcement, it appears that the decision was somewhat amicable. Banks simply tweeted, “I'm leaving Prospect Park guys. AB is back on the market!” followed by her dreams for future projects.
I want to make a super duper pop record. like disney style, but clever.

A Prospect Park spokesman confirmed to Billboard that, “We chose to terminate our management relationship with Azealia Banks... she’s one of the most talented artists in the world and are very proud of the work we did on her behalf. We wish her all the best.”
It will be interesting to see what a lack of record label support will do for Azalea. She isn’t letting this behind the scenes shake up slow her down. This week Azalea is scheduled to kick off a 26 city tour beginning in Australia.
