Poor Man’s Nicki Minaj Azealia Banks Calls Cardi B On Twitter
Hip-hop artists showered Cardi B with praise on Monday (Sept. 25) as the Bronx rapper’s summer hit “Bodak Yellow” nabbed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and went platinum. Azealia Banks, however, was not in the congratulatory mood and hopped on Twitter Monday evening to share her thoughts on Cardi’s success.
Banks began her now-deleted rant by calling out Cardi for being a “poor mans nicki” and called out Power 105. 1 Breakfast Club host Charlamagne tha God for supporting “Bodak Yellow,” but not giving other female MCs such as Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj the same support.
“Charlemagne and black men in hiphop should have gotten me, remy AND nicki a number one before they gave cardi or iggy one,” she wrote. “But literally white guys buy black men away from black women and it’s soo cringe.”
