Azealia Banks Wants Her Label to Think She’s Dead

Azealia Banks says you haven’t heard any new stuff from her because she’s sandbagging while she waits for her contract with Interscope to end. She says it’s the dumbest thing she’s ever done but she has to do it.

“Right now, I kind of have my head down,” the 1991 MC tells me. “You know, keep my head down and my mouth shut until everything is worked out and then hopefully release some songs that I’ve been holding onto forever.”

“I’m waiting for something to happen with my label, but its looking like I’m probably going to be switching labels, which is very exciting. Right now, I kind of have my head down. It’s totally just the logistical things on the end of some of the people that I work with. And it’s really sad and unfortunate just because it doesn’t really make sense from anyone’s point of view. I’ve just been keeping myself creative and inspired.”

“I can’t talk about what I’ve been writing about because I’m just keeping stuff until I’m off this label. I can’t really risk them getting excited about me again. I kind of want them to think that I’m dead. I haven’t been leaking any songs that could potentially be hits. I haven’t been releasing anything that could potentially be phenomenal. I haven’t been doing anything good because I don’t want these people to want me. It’s like a relationship with an ex-boyfriend, where you kind of do things to make him go away. Like when you don’t brush your teeth. I’m not going to brush my teeth because I don’t want you to think I’m attractive.”

This explains why my last girlfriend never shaved or showered. It’s all starting to make sense. *Shouts down towards locked basement* I get what you’re doing now!
