Damn shame. There will be plenty of comments about her mental state, attitude, and demeanor, but none about her talent and creativity. We need to protect Black women.

Black women need to just...stay away from the industry. There needs to be a platform dedicated to only black female artists with only black (female) dollars supporting. The music industry is just Anti-ADOS black woman, period. Unless that black woman is willing to be a sex slave or foreign, the industry will be toxic for her.

I can't imagine what Normani did to make it because she's not really cute and the industry is anti dark skin. She's very talented but I wouldn't put it past that she's been passed around between execs. Her, SZA, and Janelle Monae.

The industry is trash and people need to support local talent.

There is no problem with asking for help. Maybe she was just in the heat of the moment but no one esp a mature multi-millionaire is going to beg on your behalf. He must have ignored a dm. Why else would she put him out there like that.

Plenty of ppl have tried to help AZ. At this point, nobody is listening and nobody cares. AZ has burned too many bridges and gas shown time and time again that she can't be discreet or professional. How is that this Jeff K guy has the pull to take all her royalties, despite not being an investor or a producer on the album? It seems like she didn't do her due diligence to ensure she'd get her cut. Too many E! Hollywood stories about niggas not reading the fine print or having proper representation. I highly doubt this guy has the legal authority to "rob" her without her (silent/ignorant) consent. AZ dropped the ball and is now begging black Americans (men!) to step in and protect her interest. This comes less than a week after her comments surrounding not helping the BLM movement. The woman is deranged, disturbed, and mentally ill. I wouldn't trust one word that came out of her mouth.

10:42, thank you! She's poison. Every time someone tries to help her, she uses that to make them regret it. A lot of folks have lowered their guard, just for her to go on one of her rants. I'm pro-Black women and you couldn't pay me enough to save her. Every time she shows remorse, she turns right around and repeats the same behavior.

I told ya'll she's erratic. One week she's a bully, the next week she's a crying victim. She needs to beg someone to pay for her psyche meds.

Don't respond Cube, it's a trap. Leave her alone and allow her to get herself together, maybe go work at Starbucks or something.

If someone was holding my money I would not be wasting my time ranting and calling out ppl that had nothing to do with collecting my coins. I agree with above post...but I have to side eye "Killing a Chicken".....lol

If she would spend more time making sure her own business affairs are in order instead of airing out everyone else’s business she wouldn’t be “Broke with Expensive taste,” ironically the title of the album she isn’t getting paid for. I will say that this was one of the best albums released that year. It is a real artistic work and you can listen to the whole thing without skipping tracks from start to finish. It’s great for long drives when you need a boost. Unfortunate Azaelia...

I want AZ to learn how to use the power of her friendships to her advantage. Elon Musk is a mess but he is a billionaire. Being in that circle AZ could've used his contacts and wealth to secure her future get attorneys who'll advocate on her behalf. She sought to destroy the man and it back fired on her. Elon is still a billionaire and clocking checks every second of everyday. The trick is to not allow yourself to be used in a derogatory fashion but to above reproach that people would be willing to help her.

She's talented and intellectual but ignorant to the ways of the world and business. Ideally she should quietly go to college and major in business management. Get her degree and come back to the industry armed with knowledge that protects her for a lifetime.

This toxic excuse for a human has a lot to learn about karma. May the entire universe ignore her very existence and maybe she will STFU and go away!

If it was illegal, take the mf to court. Ice Cube is no judge, jury or executioner.
