Over the weekend, Azealia Banks stopped by The Breakfast Club, where their discussion on music and politics quickly shifted towards a personal vendetta with fellow female rapper, Cardi B. The outspoken Banks not only expressed her concerns with the history-making rapper, but was quite direct and even called the Invasion of Privacy rapper an “illiterate, untalented rat” and a “caricature of a black woman.” To back her statements, she stated: “Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high. 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.”

Cardi B would eventually issue a response defending her persona and musical style:

“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. 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. I’m not apologizing or kill myself because of who I am.”

As a result of their clash, Cardi B not only deleted her original statement, but her entire Instagram account which had roughly 24 million followers.

Meanwhile, Cardi B and her ex-manager are currently in a legal battle over money allegedly owed.
