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.

When it comes to the collection of body art, no one in quarantine seems to be quite as productive as Cardi B. The “Press” rapper might be in quarantine like the rest of us but that hasn’t stopped her from getting multiple tattoos and some body bling. Back in June, the rapper revealed her painful effort to obtain two new daring dermal pieces.

Unfortunately, as cute as the lewk was, her body didn’t seem up for it.

The rapper recently shared a video on her Instagram Stories of her body rejecting her chest piercings.

In a graphic video shared to Cardi’s Instagram last week, at least one of the piercings can be seen being pushed out of her body and hanging from her skin. “This is how my piercing has been for the past four days,” she explained in the selfie video.

Back in June, Cardi shared her excitement over her dermal piercing process in a video posted to her Instagram page. The two new dermal piercings were placed in a vertical line down her chest. At the time she’d also opted to remove her top dermal piercing “I got to take this one off because this one is old,” she shared. “You all know I’ve been having this one for a long time, but whatever.”

It’s unknown why Cardi B’s piercing was rejected by her body.

According to Healthline, “Piercing rejection isn’t nearly as common as some other piercing complications, like infections, keloids, and dermatitis. When rejection does happen, it’s usually in a flat area of the body.” Even more, there is no specific reason for piercing rejections. They can range from genetics and skin tightness to jewlery shape and size. Weight changes and emotional stress can also be factors in the body’s rejection of piercings.

Here’s hoping Cardi B gets the dermal piercing she’d originally hoped for!

Cardi B Used A Racial Slur To Describe Her Daughter And Now She’s Getting Educated

iamcardib / Instagram

Cardi B has her flaws and blind spots and as such as faced quite a bit of backlash throughout her career for the times that she has misspoken or used stereotypes offhandedly.

Last year, we reported that the Dominican/ Trinidadian rapper had previously claimed in resurfaced 2020 live-stream on Instagram that in the past she “had drugged and robbed men” who had solicited her for sex. In another resurfaced clip, Cardi B claimed that boyfriends who cheated on her would experience her seducing them with the promise of a threesome only to reveal the morning after that their partner was a transwoman much to her boyfriends’ distress. At the time, it didn’t take long for fans and advocates to lambast her for her ignorant use of a transwoman to get revenge, while also potentially putting them in harm’s way.

It turns out the “Bodack Yellow,” rapper is still in need of some lessons.

The rapper landed herself in hot water over the weekend after using an Asian slur while describing her daughter’s eye shape.

Okay one more pic of this look and THATS IT !

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

It all began when the mother to 2-year-old daughter Kulture shared a photo of what she might look like as an adult. In the comments, a fan was quick to point out that in the image looked like a combination of the rapper’s husband Offset and her sister Hennessy.

In response that has now been deleted Cardi B wrote “I think cause Hennessy got c*****y eyes like offset and so [does] KK. Its the only think [sic] I could think off [sic].”

Fans and critics were quick to call the Grammy award winner out for the use of the racial slur. To which she responded it came from a place of ignorance “I didn’t know that c—-y eyes was a slur like wtfff I DONT KNOW F–KIN EVERYTHING !!” she wrote in a tweet that has now been deleted. “We don’t even use that as a (sic) insult and I didn’t use it as a (sic) insult.”

In response to the backlash, she received in 2019, for her comments about once drugging and robbing men while she was a stripper, claimed to not be “perfect.”

“I never claim to be perfect or come from a perfect world wit [sic] a perfect past I always speak my truth I always own my s–t,” Cardi explained to fans at the time. “Im apart [sic] of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are. There are rappers that glorify murder violence drugs an [sic] robbing. Crimes they feel they had to do to survive. I never glorified the things I brought up in that (Instagram) live I never even put those things in my music because I’m not proud of it and feel a responsibility not to glorify it.”
