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.

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.”

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.
