Azealia Banks - Azealia Banks Pulls Single Release After Producer Claims Infringement

Azealia Banks has sensationally pulled the release of her latest single after becoming embroiled in an explosive Twitter bust-up with a producer, who has alleged that the star used his track without permission. After much-anticipation, Banks was set to release Esta Noche as a single earlier this week (September 24th) only to come under attack from DJ Munchi, real name Rajiv Munch, who is claiming that her label has used a track written by him and turned it into a single without checking first. He then alleged that he was offered $25,000 and a public apology if he allowed the release to go ahead.

Munchi made his feelings known in a series of angry messages on Twitter. He wrote, "No releasing my track, being a spoiled brat, releasing coverwork, release dates before even reaching out is a good look right? Your is (sic) camp reaching out after releasing." He added "You and your people want to make a single. You are not making things better. Tell your camp the deal is off I don't want your f**king $25.000. F**k off. Go be a puppet b**ch to someone else. Everyone who wanna download the track - it is already out. She stole my track on her mixtape Fantasea without permission. B**ch trying to buy me off after trying to blame me on this s**t, f**k outta here."

The fact that they've withdrawn the release suggests that Munchi might be talking the truth; Banks reacted on her own Twitter account though, writing, "K (OK) so Esta Noche won't be being released today because originalmunchi thinks I'm in the illuminati (sic)... I'm being very serious right now. I'm cracking up right now... This is a first."
