Banks has said she's wanted to be released from her label deal for months. Back in January she tweeted she was "in hell" at Interscope parent company Universal and was "begging" to be dropped.

Prior to being with Universal, Banks signed to XL Recordings under the name Miss Bank$. As of July 10, her artist page on Interscope's site is dead.

Naturally, her fans went crazy on Twitter.
