Recall that during her recent sit-down with the presenters of The Breakfast Club, the 212 rapper justified calling Cardi an ‘illiterate, untalented rat’, saying that the pregnant rapper has been reduced to a ‘caricature of a black woman.’
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high,” Banks told the radio show’s hosts, referencing 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.”
This pissed off Cardi who took to her social media to reply Azealia, saying that she is the way she is because she is from the hood.
“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! People followed me on Instagram and the people gave me a platform to introduce my talent,” Cardi wrote in her post. “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.”
Well, Azealia wasn’t impressed with that defence. “I also come from the hood. So does Nicki Minaj,” said Azealia, adding, “The hood is a beautiful place full of loads of creative, smart and talented people. You’re illiterate because you are lazy. Not because you are from the hood.”
And she went on to criticise Cardi for promoting gang culture, illiteracy, unprotected sex and fighting.

Cardi replied hours later, standing by her truth: she is not trying to be a role model.
And shortly after, she deleted her Instagram.
But Azealia is not done trolling Cardi though. Peep her last post below.
We can’t wait to see how this pans out.
