Azealia Banks’ SoundCloud Has Been Terminated For Copyright Infringement

Feb 21st, 2014 // 6 Comments

Azealia Banks stays losing. The perpetually plagued femcee, who is currently in record label limbo after publicly begging Universal to drop her, suffered another blow today when her SoundCloud was shut down due to copyright infringement. “So I got a third copyright infringement on my soundcloud via ‘fuck up the fun’ and they terminated my account,” she tweeted.

The “212″ rap diva then lamented: “All 2million followers, gone.” This is yet another messy episode in the once promising Azealia Banks story. I’m sure her account will be reinstated if she takes the correct measures but if the 22-year-old doesn’t turn things around soon, she will go down in history as the woman who dragged Lily Allen‘s husband for looking like a thumb. Which is a shame because there’s no denying her god-given talent. See her tweet and some memorable responses after the jump.





Is it time for the universe to give Azealia a break? Let us know in the comments below.

    I really hope she’s okay.

    Why should someone who knowingly breaks the law, not once, not twice, but THREE times, be “given a break?” It’s not like she didn’t see this coming.

  3. It is the law that is broken! Not the artists, not the authors, not the developers, not the directors.
    You just have to look at Rockstar Patent lawsuits to realize how broken the Intellectual Property system is !.

    Rappers remix songs for mixtapes all the time, why is she having so many issues doing what everyone else does???

      Possibly because these other artists secure the song rights, first, something this one, apparently, is not willing to do.

    I think it is time for the universe to give Azealia a break.
