Azealia Banks had to throw some shade on Cardi B – shown above performing at Revolution in Ft. Lauderdale this week – topping the music charts and Cardi burned her with the perfect clap back. Peep her clap back, plus rappers saluting the NYC rapper inside…
When you’re poppin’, there’s always a hater or two.
When Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts and went platinum there was an outpouring of love from a few female rappers, but not all.
Azealia Banks had plenty to say about Cardi’s history making feat. And as we all know, she doesn’t hold anything back when it comes to speaking her mind. The Harlem native took to Twitter to call Cardi the “poor man’s Nicki Minaj” and fired shots at “black men” for showing her so much support, specifically Power 105’s “The Breakfast Club” radio personality Charlamagne Tha God.
“Charlemagne and black men in hiphop should have gotten me, remy AND nicki a number one before they gave cardi or iggy one,” she tweeted. “I wanted spicy Latina and she gave me poor mans nicki”
