Azealia Banks said in a new interview that Cardi B is illiterate and untalented, and it resulted in Cardi shutting down her social media.
If you’re a fan of Cardi B’s (who isn’t?), you’re probably upset that she decided to seclude herself from the Internet no thanks to rap’s biggest troll. The Invasion Of Privacy rapper deleted her Instagram account and set her Twitter to private.
Banks made an appearance on The Breakfast Club radio show this week, and said some awful things about Cardi.
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high,” Banks said, referring to Beyonce’s 2016 album, Lemonade. “There was just this really, really, really intelligent conversation going on nationally and then everything just kind of changed and then it was like Cardi B.”
Banks continued, “I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.”
Cardi responded with a statement before removing her Instagram.
“I’m from the hood. I speak how I speak I am how I am,” she said. “I did not choose to be famous people choose me! People followed me on Instagram and the people gave me a platform to introduce my talent,” Cardi wrote. “I never asked to be a example or a role model I don’t want to change my ways because I’m famous that’s why I just mind my business. This is coming from a woman that bleached her skin but want to advocate. GOODBYE. Im not apologizing or kill myself because of who I am.”
She continued, “You can’t understand where your insecurities come from and why your not happy in your OWN skin so you think because YOU can’t figure your shit out that you can create confusion for me, make me unsure about who I am!”
Cardi didn’t sink to Banks’ level. “You think your advocating for women and your doing the opposite! I pray you find peace in your own heart and reason in your mind! Pray for your own success before you pray for the downfall of others!”
Banks has a lengthy history of starting drama, so this does not surprise anyone. It’s sad she still continues to talk smack, but when someone’s unhappy with themselves, it’s typical to bring others down.
