The rapper has also been posting on Instagram following her Twitter ban over Zayn Malik remarks.
In addition to facing the prospect of a UK ban as a result of her racist Twitter rant against Zayn Malik, Azealia Banks may have also been dropped from her UK booking agency, Primary Talent International.
Her name is longer visible on the agency’s roster – which also lists Dizzee Rascal and Daft Punk among its clients – and there is an error message currently being displayed on Banks’ artist page.
Primary have yet to make a statement, but FACT has approached them for comment.
The rapper was suspended from Twitter yesterday (May 12) so has taken to using Instagram as a platform for her voice instead, posting messages of support from fans among other posts. See a few of the most recent ones below.
This is 100% true. Black folk are the first to discard their own especially when white media/society hangs one of us out for public crucifixion. From the minute I appeared on the scene I was told by black men in black media that I was ugly, skinny, had bad hair, was weird, made music for white people etc… And those messages penetrated the social consciousness of black America very quickly. I've been belittled, berated, stolen from, called crazy when making clear and true observations about the world we live in only to then have all of those things reveal themselves to be truths. I'm not blaming anyone or anything for any of my actions but I think it's really important to for people outside of us (black folk) to understand the detrimental effects of whiteness and white supremacy/white cultural pervasiveness on black peoples MENTAL HEALTH as a whole and the MENTAL HEALTH of black individual herself. Zayn feeling as though he's too good to acknowledge me, yet not too good to STEAL and copy my art is fucking HURTFUL. And it happens everywhere. People steal and copy my art ALL THE TIME and try to pretend as if they are somehow above me when they are the ones without their own creative ideas to begin with. Music industry politics which completely mimic racial social constructs allow people like Zayn to hide behind his popularity amongst white folk when he himself is aiding in the work of white supremacy. Cultural Erasure. Another instance of a "white" artist taking credit for the black artists hard work and passion. And truthfully, it's pushing me over the fucking edge. White society grinds down the self esteem of black artists to the point where we are expected to be silent about such obvious transgressions.
Banks was heavily criticised by fans after calling former One Direction star Zayn a “sand nigga” and “curry scented bitch” in a rant this week over similarities between his new video and her aesthetic. She later issued her own statement where she defended the “angry” racist tweets, having been dropped from her headline set at London’s Rinse | Born & Bred Festival
