"Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women's culture was really reaching an all-time high", Banks said, later referencing Beyonce's 2016 album, Lemonade.

Banks appeared on a U.S. radio show Friday, reportedly labelling the rapper as an "untalented rat" and a "caricature of a black woman". "If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day", she added. I did not choose to be famous people choose me!

Cardi answered Banks' statements via a post on Instagram but chose to completely take down her account afterward. I've never seen that at the forefront of rap.

LOS ANGELES-Cardi B has deleted her Instagram account and set her Twitter to private after a row with Azealia Banks.

On Saturday, Cardi B posted several tweets in response.

Mike Budenholzer 'the focus' of Bucks, Raptors coaching searches
The Bucks finished the season under interim coach Joe Prunty and made the playoffs as the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference. Budenholzer parted ways with the Hawks after five seasons in April, after posting a 213-197 record in charge of the team.

It only further fueled Banks' anger towards Cardi, which prompted her to launch another attack where she called her illiterate and criticized her for agreeing to be the baby mama of a man who had a lot of children with other women since her fiancé Offset already has three other kids from previous relationships. "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".

A woman outside is clearly upset as she tries to fight her way into the store, and yells at the hip-hop star, "Come outside, you bitch!"

Cardi B also references Banks' own past with skin bleaching, arguing that the rapper takes her own issues with race out by "taking joy in belittling over black women", referencing previous feuds with Beyoncé, Remy Ma and Rihanna.

Still, there are folks who visibly cringe every time she utters "Eee-yoowwwww" and the now-SNL appropriated "Okkkurrr!" And because I laugh a little harder or talk a little louder doesn't make me a caricature! She then calls on Azaelia to "pray for [her] own success before [she prays] for the downfall of others".
