- In an Instagram post, performance artist Azealia Banks announces that she will never release music again because the audience doesn't deserve it.
- She captioned the post: “Stop asking. I’m clearly not ever going to release music again. I’m entirely too good for 3/4 of the public. They don’t deserve me and I don’t deserve to have my life’s purpose attached to “having to work three times as hard as a white woman” lmfao FOH. How about I don’t work at all , collect ebt and make a multi million dollar shit talk YouTube channel effectively making an exponentially higher amount of money than I’d make “working three times as hard” . . . If you cannot tell by now, Azealia Banks has been trying her hardest to hack the “three times as hard as a white woman code” .... some of you may see it as stupidity but I cannot , have not and will never accept that as a rule of my life, I will actually do the exact opposite in order to disrupt whatever spiritual warfare there is attached to that “three times as hard” ideology.... that is not an original black womans thought ..... that is something she has been taught and something I’ve dedicated my life to undoing. Although I was naturally born an exceptionally talented being, it behooves me to exhibit normalcy and humanity outside of being the stellar *over achieving negress* American social archetype each and every one of your favorite black female celebrities are. Even if I must underachieve or be mediocre... I will do so in order for the greater white society to UNDERSTAND, that my existence is NEVER EVER for their comfort, entertainment or consumption. The way whiteness engages with black entertainers is still not sterile enough for me to want to engage at that level. I want the special American psychopath pass given to Quentin Tarantino ... until then you can read my rants and listen to the one song I drop a year.”
- Azealia Banks's last release is the song Treasure Island.
