BREAKING: Azealia Banks Cancels Set At Future Music Festival Adelaide Due To ‘Road Hags’

Written by Mike Hohnen on March 11, 2013

It seems that a disagreement between Azealia Banks and Future Music promoters regarding the team handling the outspoken rapper’s sound has resulted in her cancelling her set an hour after she was due to perform.

Referring to a group she calls ‘road hags’, Banks accused the as-yet unidentified people of trying to sabotage her set ‘again’. Half an hour after she was meant to take the stage today, Banks tweeted that she wouldn’t be performing until these ‘road hags’ get out from her stage, and in a tweet just half an hour ago she claims that “the promoter refused to make the same guys who messed up my show the other day move… So I’m leaving…”

We can only assume at this point that this is a jab at The Stone Roses and/or their sound crew, who she believed messed up the sound during her Sydney performance as they were doing a soundcheck, despite her claims that they “apologised” to her.

What on earth is up with this person? When she’s not slamming her peers, or slamming her betters, she can always find something else to carry on about.

So there you have it, Radelaide – Banks cares more about her pride than her fans. If anyone can recall Splendour In The Grass, there were sound issues then as well. I think Banks might have a difficult time explaining to her record label why sales will start to slump in Australia.

Music Feeds will bring you more info as soon as we get it.

UPDATE:

Moments after publishing this story, Banks tweeted a link to SoundCloud, unveiling her never-before-heard brand-new single Yung Rapunxel. Whatever you say about her methods, she knows how to promote herself. Check out the new track below.
