In a lengthy late-night rant on Thursday (Jan. 21), Azalea claimed that Virgin EMI, specifically the label’s president, Ted Cockle, refused to green-light a video for the song purposed to create buzz for her upcoming album, Digital Distortion, because it isn’t “good enough.”

“Azillion,” which has garnered nearly 900,000 plays on SoundCloud since its Jan. 8 debut, is a track Iggy said was specifically for “MY RATZ.” When fans pressed the rapper for clarification on why the song isn’t being appropriately promoted, Azalea explained the industry red tape she’s run into.

Despite her varied frustrations, the “Fancy” rapper has a sense of humor about the situation.
