Azealia Banks Says Cardi B Only Identified As Black When She Became A Rapper

Posted by

The plot continues to thicken. After Azealia Banks went on the Breakfast Club and bashed Cardi B for her lack of “couth,” Cardi fired back before deleting both her Instagram and Twitter accounts.

Now, the often controversial Harlem rapper has returned with her response to Cardi’s seething comments, attacking the Invasion Of Privacy rapper’s looks.

“Belcalis….sis, give up,” she wrote on Saturday (May 12). “You have a fever and are leaking breast milk everywhere trying to come up with a refutable comeback. Sis spent 12 hours proofreading a message while still COMPLETELY missing the point. You and whoever wrote this reply for you don’t have the intelligence to engage in this not-so-complex discussion.

“I spoke about it for all of two minutes in an interview and you respond by calling me unattractive..mentioning my bleaching my skin and telling me to ‘suck your ass.’ Immediately proving yourself to be exactly who I thought you were.. A Bird. Sis .. let’s not forget that you look like a big toe with a Hammernail without all of that contour on your face. You are a very mediocre looking light-skin woman with cold sores on the sides of her mouth, a coated tongue you love to wag around and horribly deep set eyes.”

Banks went on to point out that Cardi used to solely identify as Latina and says she only recently started calling herself black once she got into Hip Hop.

“It’s clear that you are having a problem with this new found proximity to blackness as evidenced by your propensity to turn any and all attempts to engage you in these important cultural discussions into faux-sympathetic cry baby rants about how you’re just a dumb bitch from the hood who never asked to be a role model. Reverse psychology won’t work here.

“As a Black Woman in hiphop its IMPERATIVE that you use your (new found) Black Womanhood responsibly. Saying things to Rolling Stone like, ‘I don’t even use condoms’ when HIV remains a threat to the many minority girls who patronize your music is IRRESPONSIBLE.”

Before wrapping up her tirade, the “Anna Wintour” rapper left Cardi with some advice.

“I suggest you leave these types of cultural conversations alone for now,” she concluded. “You don’t have the range.”
