After filming an appearance on Nick Cannon’s MTV comedy series Wild ‘N Out, Azealia Banks announced the cancellation of her upcoming album Fantasea II via her Instagram story, which you can view here courtesy of Reddit. “Album is cancelled,” she wrote. Adding, “I’ll release new music when I feel like it.”
Azealia’s decision to cancel the album was actually triggered by her negative experiences during the filming of Wild ‘N Out. On Sunday, Banks shared an Instagram post detailing her mistreatment filled with “tons of pre-planned colorist jokes” on the set of Nick Cannon’s MTV show. You can read the statement in its entirety below.
I did Wildin’ out today. There were tons of pre-planned colorist jokes and of course …. cry baby cried. Some little scrawny black Atlanta twink was prepared for me. They planned this – hit me on short notice, told me I didn’t have to participate in the coon ass freestyle battles ,(not my style) and I was to sing my song and go home. I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist, then all of a sudden a choir of the most disgustingly basic, local, cattle call “urban” pseudo comedic “FAT BECause You sit in a chair all day” greasy soul food induced south of the mason Dixon ,self hatred. Ass It#backwards, post-Jim crow , post traumatic slave disorder true self esteem less, Ward of the state CLOWNS with their low scale and highly UNimpressive resumes, start going off about how the beautiful Azealia Banks looks! I’ve never felt so much hate and rage for anyone else than I did in that moment. Yemaya was really on stage . Yemaya …..
She detailed more of the account, which you can view directly on her Instagram stories and in response, Nick Cannon came back with a light, albeit shady statement, “Don’t you hate when you create your own storms without an umbrella?” He continues, “We are praying for you Queen,” and ended the response with “#karma.”
Don’t you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella??? 🤦🏾♂️ @azealiabanks We are praying for you Queen 🙏🏾 #speedyrecovery #Healing She #Wildnout for real 😳 🤣 #Karma
After Cannon’s response, Azealia swiftly got back to him in the comments section to type, “Pray for your immune system Nick. Don’t pray for me.” The comment had since been deleted, but captured by balleralert.

For those of you who are not aware, the reply was in reference to Nick Cannon’s health issues, who has been diagnosed with lupus, a systemic autoimmune disease that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks your own tissues and organs.
