Azealia Banks is one of the most outspoken artists in the music industry which often times comes at a cost. While it’s commendable that she’s fearless in the way she speaks, it serves as both a gift and a curse in her career. She’s been openly critical of Cardi B ever since the success of “Bodak Yellow.” Earlier today, Banks doubled down on her comments about Cardi B. Clearly, the “Drip” emcee caught wind of it and had a message to send in Azealia Banks’ direction.
Cardi B wasn’t feeling the fact that her name was a topic of conversation during Banks’ visit on the Breakfast Club and decided to let it be known. Azealia Banks suggested that Cardi B was a caricature of Black women and that the conversation surrounding Black women went from Beyoncé’s Lemonade to Cardi B. Clearly, Cardi had some thoughts and decided to ether the living hell out of Azealia Banks.
“Beyoncé? Wasn’t Beyoncé the same woman she was talking shit about and dragging all over the media? I’m from the hood, I speak how I speak, I am how I am. I did not choose to be famous, people choose me!” She wrote. “This is coming from a woman that bleached her skin but want to advocate. GOODBYE. I’m not apologizing or killing myself because of who I am.”
Earlier today, Cardi B issued another statement following the interview that was a bit more indirect. She was wondering why she caught heat for the way she speaks while male rappers never get critiqued for speaking in the same manner. Clearly, this was directed at Banks.
