Rapper Azealia Banks has
asked fans to longer stream her debut album, ‘Broke With
Expensive Taste’ after alleging the only person to profit from
the revenue is the label Prospect Park’s chief executive, Jeff
Kwatinetz.

In an Instagram post shared today (July 12), Banks said the
producers haven’t been receiving royalties from the record since
its release.

“Jeff Kwatinetz stole all the money and sent a $15k check for
album that has been streamed over 200m times,” she claimed.

“I worked so hard on that record. But every stream goes into
his pocket.”

The rapper has also said she has the master recordings and is
exploring ways to re-issue the record.

In a follow-up post, Banks shared alleged email correspondence
between herself and Kwatinetz. In the email, Kwatinetz apparently
discussed the reasoning behind Banks’ one-record deal with
Prospect Park and that he’d “never want to take advantage of
you in any way”.

Prospect Park released ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’ in
November 2014, Banks’ only record released through the label.
Back in 2015, Banks
split from Prospect Park’s management services
and said she
was unable to
release music
until March 2016 due to a contract dispute with
the label.

Last month,
Banks contacted Ice Cube
, Kwatinetz’ business partner in
basketball league Big3, over Twitter with similar claims.

“Your white manager Jeff Kwatinetz has stolen all of the
royalties from my debut album and I was wondering if you could use
your influence to get them for me?” Banks said in a now-deleted
tweet.

“I worked very hard on that album and Jeff wasn’t the person
who paid for its production,” she wrote. “Universal did. Jeff
purposely released an uncleared record acting as Manager &
Label and has screwed me out of millions of dollars.”
