So when we reported last month that “Azealia Banks has left Prospect Park as a management client, though will remain signed to the company’s record label for the time being” we could have thrown in a “reluctantly” or two in there. Which we probably could have guessed.

Commenting on her most recent business dealings on Twitter last week, Banks told her fans that Prospect Park and its boss man Jeff Kwatinetz “no longer wants to manage me BUT… is holding me in my album contract until February 2016”.

But don’t be assuming that means she’ll be making a record for Kwatinetz – who’s possibly too busy restructuring his own business affairs to be releasing a Banks record anyway – but Prospect Park enforcing that particular contract will mean, she says, “there won’t be any new music until March 2016. Sorry guys”.

Though given how long we waited for ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’, I’m not sure March next year seems all that far away.
