It seemed like the whole hip-hop world came out to congratulate Cardi B after Bodak Yellow made history topping the charts this week, but Azealia Banks was not one of them. The rapper dissed her calling her the “poor mans Nicki Minaj and saying that she had a ghost writer. She claims that she knows the guy who write Bodak Yellow. She then goes on to say Cardi exchanged sex for verses.

Azealia praised Bardi not too long ago saying, “I followed Cardi B on Instagram before she started rapping and I was like, Oh my God, this girl just reminds me of all the girls I went to middle school with, all the girls I grew up on the block with, all the Dominican babysitters. I grew up with girls just like Cardi B. So I always thought she was funny, and when she started rapping, I was like what is she doing? Then I heard “Foreva and I was like, Okay, this is really fucking good, shes not playing. Then I heard a couple other songs and I was like, Oh shit, Cardis not playing! And now Im a fan of Cardi Bs music and her personality.

One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!
