The familiar tale of Major Label vs. Independent Artist rears its ugly head in the latest argument between Shystie & Interscope Records.
British female rapper Shystie is independently taking on Interscope as they stepped in to stop the release of her new track “Control It” featuring Harlem rapper Azealia Banks. The two female stars have enjoyed a successful friendship having been introduced on Twitter and consequently featuring on each other’s tracks. Azealia Banks recorded “Control It” with Shystie and the controversial new video was shot in late 2012 with full co-operation and agreement from everyone involved. However it seems that the power of the major label is being used to dominate the plans and the success of the independent artist as Interscope appears to have stepped in saying they want to stop the release going ahead, despite full support from Azealia’s camp prior to the video’s release on Sunday (March 3rd, 2013) via American website, Billboard.com.
Shystie, who has achieved a successful acting career making appearances in the box office smash “Adulthood” and “Illegal Activity” and who recently featured in Vogue thanks to her appearance at London Fashion Week, has never been one to be backed in to a corner; let alone by a powerful corporation.
