Iggy Azalea’s new single titled “Azillion” didn’t take off, at least not to her label’s satisfaction, so Virgin EMI told her there won’t be a music video shot for it.
That angered the “Fancy” rapper enough that she aired her feelings out via Twitter and accused the label’s President, Ted Cockle, of trying to hold her career back.
“Bad news update:my record label Virgin/EMI seems to feel the response to my viral record “zillon” wasnt good enough & im not allowed a video,” she wrote on the social networking site. “I felt like it was dope so, whatever. ted cockle doesnt wanna see me shine. what can i say. They expect me to find a pop star to wack onto a radio friendly song with me rapping the verses. That’s what THEY want. It’s Cockle’s fault.”
Azalea went on to say that she wants to switch to Def Jam, which also falls under theUniversal Music Group umbrella, but is being blocked by Cockle.
“im trying to switch to just Def Jam but cockle is making it hard,” she continued.
Some of the tweets have since been deleted, but you can check out the rest and the song “Azillion” below.
Iggy might want to rethink this strategy. Throwing shots at the person who is in control of your career could backfire
