Azealia Banks Celebrates Victory in Battle over Royalties


Earlier this week Harlem rapper Azealia Banks asked fans to stop streaming her debut album 'Broke with Expensive Taste' after accusing entertainment exec Jeff Kwatinetz of stealing 100% of her royalties [click here if you missed that].

Azealia lifts the ban...


...after informing her fans that Jeff is being audited.

How is this a victory? Nothing is decided yet.

The $2.50 streaming royalties from Spotify aren't worth fighting over. She'd be better off making a new album where she can own 100% of it.

I hope she wins something so she will "Shut The Hell Up".

I beg to differ. Those coins from streaming are huge! I have my playlist as everyone else has. Azelia's album is on it and I am sure her album streams are making a pretty penny. For that matter, if I were her I would not care how little the money is. It is the principle.

It is worth the fight.

But I would want the money no matter how big or small because that is what makes the world go 'round AND she worked her ass off on that album and the quality of it shows that effort.

@12:19 Spotify pays 6 cents per 100 plays. It's slightly higher than I thought, but you have to be a Taylor Swift or Ed Sheehan to make bank. You need millions of plays a week.

I guess she finally put her magic to good use. I also saw Elon rocket blew up and some other shit, now move in silence.

Next week she will be going off about the audit being mishandled, inaccurate etc. The drama with this one never ends.
