During a radio interview on Friday, May 11, Azealia explained: "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.
She added: "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 (sic)". "People followed me on Instagram and the people gave me a platform to introduce my talent".
It began with comments Banks made in an interview with U.S. radio show The Breakfast Club on Friday, where Banks was prompted to comment on why she had previously called Cardi B an "illiterate hood rat".
The "Bodak Yellow", rapper who is now pregnant with Offset's baby, was threatened by people as she attempted to enter a shop with security guards. We've finally got another fiery response from Azealia after Cardi called her out for being a hypocrite.
Cardi responded to the comments via her Instagram. "You're not happy in you're own skin so you think because you can't figure your sh*t out that you can create confusion for me", Cardi wrote.
Her Instagram account has since gone offline. "And if something's don't work for me, I'm allowed to make the personal and artistic choice to consume what I see, as I see fit".
I would never suggest she didn't earn her fame. Banks, once clowned by Cardi for criticizing her meanwhile bopping to "Bodak Yellow", won this round. "And because I laugh a little harder or talk a little louder doesn't make me a caricature!" she said in the now deleted post. She then calls on Azaelia to "pray for [her] own success before [she prays] for the downfall of others".
