Azealia Banks just won’t give up.
Azealia Banks and Cardi B have a more evident feud than Nicki Minaj and Cardi B do. Cardi and Nicki have shown support for each other and were even both featured on Migos’ “Motor Sport” single that dropped this morning. However, it seems like Azealia Banks heard the song and has her own thoughts on it.
Since the single’s release, people have been convinced that Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are firing shots at each other on “Motor Sport”, including Azealia Banks. She posted on her Instagram story, “Wow so, you’re featuring on a song in which you’re simultaneously getting dissed…” she said. Below that, she wrong “Damn, shorty is really a crumb.” While she may not name any names, she’s previously been vocal about her disdain for Cardi B in the past.
Many people have been digging into the lyrics of the song deep. When Nicki raps, “It’s a wrap, like the things on the head of a Saudi/ Bitch, you my son, go and sit on the potty,” a lot of people assumed the line was a dig at Cardi. Despite the fact the line is vague and Nicki has made plenty of “You my son” lines in the past, doesn’t necessarily validate that she’s firing shots at Cardi.
People also thought that Cardi was firing at Nicki with the line, “Same hoes that was sendin’ shots/ They reachin’ out like their back itchin’” during her verse. But, again, it still seems like a reach.
Neither lines explicitly call each other out and Cardi even ends her verse with, “Why would I hop in some beef/When I could just hop in a Porsche?/ You heard she gon’ do what from who?/ That’s not a reliable source.”
The issues between Cardi and Azealia Banks stems from when “Bodak Yellow” hit number one on the Billboard. Azealia initially went on a Twitter rant where she called Cardi a “poor man’s Nicki.” Cardi later caught wind of her comments and then posted a video of Azealia turning up to “Bodak.”
We’ll see if Cardi ends up responding to Azealia at any point.
