Ari Lennox and her management team Black Wax have “amicably decided to part ways,” according to an announcement from her rep.
She first signed with the company in 2012 and “still considers them family and is beyond thankful for the business ventures and memories.” Lennox is currently working on her sophomore album and seeking new management. Ari will presumably belt out “Pressure” at Washington D.C.’s Broccoli City Festival where she’s scheduled to perform alongside 21 Savage, Jeezy, and Wale on Saturday, May 7.
In January, Ari Lennox revealed that she wants to be “dropped from the labels” in a tweet, explaining that she’s “done and tired.”
“I want to be dropped from the labels. I’m done and tired. I will continue to sing about dick when I want,” Lennox wrote. “And you misogynistic peasants can continue to jerk off to my music thank you!!!! Good morning.”— Ari Lennox (@AriLennox) January 23, 2022
