Banks also said that Cardi's success was "unfair to the real institution of female rap" - then added, "We're talking about this for way too fucking long" and plugged her new single "Anna Wintour". 1's The Breakfast Club on Friday, May 11, and she explained why she believed that Cardi was an "illiterate untalented rapper" and accused her of behaving like a "caricature of a black woman" during a time that was empowering for African-American women in society, following the release of Beyoncé's groundbreaking 2016 album Lemonade.
"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".
Banks has, over the years, viciously attacked pretty much any black woman who is more famous than Azealia Banks for not being black right.
"I speak how I speak". I am how I am. I did not choose to be famous - people choose me... I never asked to be an example or a role model.
Cardi faced more drama this weekend after deleting her Instagram account.
"You're illiterate, you're baby mama 4/5 to [a] man who has women crawling out of the woodworks with kids", Azealia said. "If I respectfully told you I don't want to take a picture your drunk ass shouldn't get close to me and disrespect my decision, space or privacy".
Never one to back down, Cardi responded soon after she caught wind of the interview. "GOODBYE. I'm not apologizing or killing myself because of who I am". How smart are you if you don't know that the meaning of illiterate means to not know how to read or write?
Yet, her rise does say something about what mainstream society chooses to extract from The Culture.
"If my spelling and grammar was that bad, I would be canceled", Banks pointed out. And because I laugh a little harder or talk a little louder doesn't make me a caricature! "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. You don't see other races going around calling each other Beckys, flat asses, pale face 'Hey look at the white cracker b--.' (I'm not trying to be amusing or offensive) but words hurt we are all human no matter who we are!
