"Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women's culture was really reaching an all-time high", she said.
The 25-year-old rap star has also decided to make her Twitter account private after she become embroiled in an unpleasant row with Azealia, who previously described her in an interview as an "illiterate, untalented rat" and a "caricature of a black woman". "Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I'd be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day", she added. Most of her music is a bop and, within it, she wields a unique style of speech exalted in other rappers from Snoop Dogg to Lil' Kim to the Notorious B.I.G and beyond. I did not choose to be famous people choose me!
Cardi responded to Azealia's insults via Instagram and then deleted her account. "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".
It started on Friday - when Azealia told a United States radio station that Cardi was an "illiterate, untalented rat" and a "caricature of a black woman". She also pointed to Cardi B's success as a low point of female artistry, marking Beyonce's Lemonade as a peak. "Everyone is flawed. I simply see things from MY eyes and MY point of view", Banks said in response to Cardi's comments that Banks is a hypocrite for supporting things after she disses them.
Bohemian Rhapsody movie trailer: Queen Freddie Mercury biopic teaser has arrived
Dexter Fletcher ( Eddie the Eagle ) took over as director and he's also due to make a biopic about Elton John entitled Rocketman . In the first teaser for Bohemian Rhapsody , we get a look at Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury , and it's pretty fantastic.
But Azealia - who has been involved in various celebrity feuds over the years - was quick to snap back at the rapper, taking aim at Cardi's pregnancy and her relationship with fellow musician Offset.
She continues, "The concept of me "attacking" other women is a hard one to process because it's subjective and purely an analysis of what YOU see".
Now, Banks is continuing the conversation on her own Instagram Story, posting early Tuesday morning (May 15).
