Azealia Banks Came For Cardi B On Twitter, Calling Her A ‘Poor Man’s Nicki,’ But Cardi’s Clap Back Was Perfect

Cardi B is living her best life, especially this week, and it’s only Wednesday. She’s topping charts, performing on television, and getting shout outs from the biggest names in music. She’s establishing herself as more than a one hit wonder by dropping a dope feature. She’s doing shows all over with fans shouting her lyrics from the tops of their lungs.

What could possibly go wrong? Who could possibly say a negative thing about this success story? Well…

On Sunday, the Bronx-born rap star was ending a run of Florida shows in Miami…

By Monday, she had flown to Atlantic Record’s New York offices to pick up her platinum plaque for “Bodak Yellow.”

PLATINUM!!!!!! Thank you BARDIGANG,FRIENDS,Family ,Radio personality ,DJs,ARTIST !!!!Made it happen for me !!!

It was also the same day that “Bodak Yellow” was announced as the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

She made history as only the second female rapper (with no guest performers) to get to the top since Lauryn Hill in 1998, and also became the first person of Dominican descent to ever get to #1 by herself.

On top of that, Atlantic’s meeting to give her a plaque was just a cover for her surprise party with her closest friends and family.

She then got to perform on late night television for the first time ever.

She got to perform her amazing feature on G-Eazy’s song “No Limit,” where she easily out raps him, and then on stage, out danced him.

Missy Elliot, whose album Cardi B says was the first she ever bought, shouted her out on social media.

Even Nicki Minaj, the reigning unofficial Queen of Rap, threw some love at Cardi B, congratulating her as a fellow “New Yawka.”

Just an amazing couple of days. And it seemed like nothing could go wrong for Cardi B ever again. Until…

Yup, you guessed it Azealia Banks, who is a dope musician in her own right, albeit controversial, came for Cardi B.

Banks, whose official Twitter was suspended, has been tweeting from an unofficial account using the name @XoCheapy.

Banks had strong feelings about Cardi B.

Although she said she wasn’t playing respectability politics, she sounded a lot like someone spitting about respectability politics.

She then went for the jugular so you’d know for sure who she was talking about.

She then dropped the mic, finally calling Cardi B a “poor man’s Nicki.”

It’s not hip-hop without a little beef.

Cardi, being no stranger to beef or social media, dropped the slickest clap back yet.

One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!

Cardi posted a video of Azealia Banks enthusiastically singing along to “Bodak Yellow.” If the line “One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!” isn’t an example of Cardi B’s intelligence, I don’t know what is.

Let’s hope they keep it on wax and it stays a healthy competition between the two NYC talents.

Romeo Santos Streaming Historic MetLife Stadium Concert Next Month

For those who missed Romeo Santos’s historic MetLife Stadium concert in 2019, the king of bachata is going to release the show to streaming next month. The former Aventura frontman will also release a documentary on his meteoric rise.

Romeo Santos broke many records for his MetLife Stadium concert in 2019.

Starting with the announcement of his MetLife Stadium concert, Santos broke record after record. First, he became the first Latin artist to headline the massive New Jersey Stadium. After tickets went on sale, Santos became the first Latin artist to sell out the venue.  When the concert kicked off on Sept. 21, he then broke the record for the highest-grossing show in the stadium’s history. Before Romeo, the top-grossing record belonged to the Irish band U2.

Aventura and Cardi B joined Romeo Santos during that show.

Santos’ MetLife Stadium concert was not only historic for the records. The concert was also major for his reunion with Aventura. The guys came back together to perform “Inmortal” live from Santos’ Utopía album. That night Cardi B also joined Aventura to perform the band’s classic “Obsesión.”

Fans can see the MetLife Stadium show and a Romeo Santos documentary next month.

Santos is teaming up with Sony Music Latin, Endeavor Streaming, and iNDemand to release Romeo Santos: Utopía Live from MetLife Stadium on June 25. On the same night, Santos will also release his documentary Romeo Santos: The King of Bachata. Fans can buy their tickets to both pay-per-view events on his official website.

“These films have been such a special project for me and I’m honored and eager to show it to the world and pull back the curtain on the history of bachata,” Santos said in a statement. “For the film to showcase my upbringing and build up to my performance at MetLife Stadium, it gives me the opportunity to relieve one of the most incredible nights of my life while also bringing it inside the homes of my fans across the world.” 

Guests appearing in the films include Daddy Yankee, Emilio Estefan, Marc Anthony, Tommy Mottola, and Thalía. It’s because of that iconic MetLife Stadium show that Santos is nominated for Latin Touring Artist of the Decade at this year’s Pollstar Awards.

Cardi B Files Trademark For ‘Bardi Beauty’ After Hinting That She Wants to Launch Her Own Makeup Line

Cardi B Files Trademark For ‘Bardi Beauty’ After Hinting That She Wants to Launch Her Own Makeup Line

Cardi B doesn’t stop hustling. Recently, the Bronx-born rapper filed legal documents to trademark the phrase “Bardi Beauty”. That means that Cardi B is thinking of getting into the makeup and beauty game.

So, in essence, Cardi B is planning a full takeover of the beauty industry. And we can’t wait! Cardi B’s past red carpet and photoshoot looks have practically broken the internet with their creativity and innovation.

This trademark filing comes to no surprise to fans who have been closely following the rapper’s business life. Cardi B has been teasing the idea of releasing a beauty line for years. Just last month, Cardi claimed that she wanted to start a haircare line for Afro-Latinas.

Earlier this year, Cardi announced on Instagram: “This year I will be coming out with a hair[care] line that I been working on at home for my hair and my daughter’s.”

“Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light, or don’t make your face features slim, [e]specially Latin countries from the Caribbean islands,” she further explained on Twitter. “DNA [has] something to do with your hair, not your nationality.

“Bardi Beauty” would be one of many business spin-offs that Cardi would commit her time to. It was only a matter of time before she went the beauty route with Bardi Beauty.

The Grammy-winning rapper already has had massive success collaborating with brands like Reebok, Steve Madden, and Fashion Nova.

Fellow music jefas Rihanna and Selena Gomez have created lucrative beauty brands like Fenty Beauty and Rare Beauty to great fanfare. In fact, creating a beauty brand to go along with her music brand seems like a natural thing for Cardi B to do.

Let’s hope that Bardi Beauty will take the Fenty Beauty route and create products for people of different races, ethnicities, and skin colors.
