Banks made the announcement on Instagram, writing "album is cancelled" in a story post, which you can find archived here. She added, "I'll release new music when I feel like it."
The news of Fantasea II's shelving comes after Banks detailed an incident shooting an episode of Nick Cannon's MTV comedy Wild 'N Out. In a separate Instagram post made Sunday (July 15), Banks revealed that a musical appearance turned into "tons of pre-planned colorist jokes" directed at her by the cast.
Banks then hit back at Cannon in another Instagram story post, taking a jab at his lupus diagnosis. "If I were to make fun of nick cannon for having lupus and being weak and sickly......... if I made a joke that said he'd be dead by the end of the year ......... Then Azealia Banks is the bad guy.... Right?" she wrote.
Cannon then took a screenshot of the post and shared it through his own Instagram page, asking, "Don't you hate when you create your own storms but forget your umbrella???"
Banks has shared the songs "Anna Wintour" and "Treasure Island" ahead of Fantasea II. Find her and Cannon's posts 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 .....
