Azealia Banks Cardi B Lord Jamar

Cardi B was forced to delete her Instagram account after vicious attacks from singer Azealia Banks and rapper Lord Jamar. It looks like the public's love affair for the Bronx native is finally over.

Cardi B is among a group of white and Hispanic rappers who are heavily promoted by the media as acceptable crossover hip-hop artists. This is not sitting well with other celebrities.

On Friday, Azealia slammed the pregnant "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker during an interview with The Breakfast Club radio show in New York City.

Calling Cardi an "illiterate, untalented rat" and a "caricature of a black woman," Banks dismissed the one-hit wonder as an influential rapper.

“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high," Azealia said. “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.”

Cardi quickly replied to Banks' sizzling comments, writing a lengthy rebuttal on Instagram.com before deleting her account.

“I never asked to be a example or a role model I don't want to change my ways because I'm famous that's why I just mind my business. This is coming from a woman that bleached her skin but want to advocate. GOODBYE. Im not apologizing or kill myself because of who I am."

Lord Jamar, of hip-hop group Brand Nubian, also slammed Cardi B as a worthless tool of the liberal media.

Cardi, who is a former stripper, happily promotes her link to the violent Bloods street gang in her music and on social media.

In a VladTV video, Jamar said Time magazine naming Cardi as one of the world's most influential people was "scary."

"When an ex-stripper Blood is influencing so many people, it could be a little frightening," he said.

Watch the interview below.

 

  • SweetTEE

    People wake up everyday B.

  • Gloria

    lol, Azaelia Banks is mentally ill. Her comments should be taken with a grain of salt but in this case, I'm trying to figure out where was she wrong in her statement regarding Cardi B..... Hmmmm?

    Black people need to stop praising ratchet, classless behavior! Period.

  • Dem Moore

    They need to leave her alone, she came up now people mad.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    I like Cardi, however i have to agree. Her over exposure is bananas. It's like the elite want to push an agenda of ignorance.

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    Azaelia is the same one who told the Dark skin chick on twitter to bleach her skin and called her a tar baby. But, she is so concerned about the struggle of the black woman, bitch please!

  • Phillybruh

    I'm trying to find the lie. She said the same thing about Nikki a year ago and it was still the truth. But the way she broke Cardi down over the weekend was good stuff!

  • Rayne

    I’m looking myself bro ?

  • Latisaj

    Is this said about ex drug dealer gangsters that are now pushing music.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Just posted this here shit. Everyone acting as if she is telling this mind blowing ass truth about Cardi. GTFOH.

  • Sid

    Can we get an article on Nicole Arbour making a parody out of Childsih Gambino “This is America”
    People are going in. She posts a comment “black women tears” than deletes it

  • hi-liter

    And she was bleaching her skin as well, claiming it was for "other" reasons.

  • Marie L.

    Azaelia Banks is dead 730. Maybe she said some truths about Cardi, but it doesn’t negate the facts she’s certifiable.

  • hi-liter

    Who?

  • https://www.instagram.com/nymagee/ Ny MaGee

    He ain't lying.

    “Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high,” Azealia said. “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.”
    ^^^^^^^^^^^
    She went wrong by pretending she was part of this really uplifting, intelligent convo nationally, internationally, or even in the inside of her twisted ass OWN HEAD...about black women. When she was busy calling a black woman a tar baby, a n***er, and telling her to report back to the cotton field. Within the SAME time frame this convo was supposedly going on. That is where she was wrong. Cardi isnt perfect but if we are to stop "praising ratchet, classless behavior" then lets start with the beginning of the alphabet with A for Azealia. We can move on down to Cardi OR Belcalis accordingly.

  • hi-liter

    Jealous hearted ho's never prosper. What does this muskrat want other female rappers to do if people are buying their music and not hers? Talk to the people who buying Cardi shat.

  • Sid

    Lol yeah I thought the same thing. But she is trying to break through with this video she did. She is getting dragged by her hair on Twitter

  • Phillybruh

    See the part that puzzles me is yall keep circulating her comment, not what started the back and forth.

  • hi-liter

    I seriously never heard of her.

  • GeorgiaH

    Also, bragged about dating white men. How'd that work out?

  • Sid

    It’s the right message just the wrong messenger

  • Marie L.

    “Black people need to stop praising ratchet, classless behavior!”
    ............
    Oooooo I agree. When Cardi was twerkin that baby all over the stage, I wanted to take 2 ?. Just nasty...

  • RespectSelf

    While i agree with the over all conversation, I still think it's flawed. Not all black girls act like Cardi... The way she talk and act is based on where she grew up. To say she is a caricature of black women is a stretch.... It's sad because she probably been the same way her whole life and now she gotta fake the funk because she's famous???? But we don't like fake people.?

    More over, Cardi didn't create the system... She does not call the shots are make the rules. So because she's fair skin then she shouldn't go out and try to make her dreams come true???? So now we should discriminate on her because her skin tone isn't black enough??? lol so instead of making it better... we should just reverse it???

  • Ryan

    I just can't get rid of the image of Azaelia cleaning chicken blood and feathers out of her closet. I wanna like her but, damn.

  • Scromes1212

    Her logic doesn't make sense. It's ok to be a ex pimp, gang banger or drug dealer but not ok to be a ex stripper before you start rapping? How is Cardi any different then any other rapper?

  • bemetoo

    cardi cardi cardi cardi cardi...man just let her go the stripper came up now everybody mad because she was a gang stripper who has a good personality.. idgaf I know how to raise children

  • Phillybruh

    But she's in a position to change that perception now. Nicki could have put on clothes long ago because she is famous enough to change it. But she doesn't.

  • Ni Ni

    I got no dog in this here fight but, i wouldn't let this bat sht crazy chick run me off. Strippers and hoing are revered nowadays. Everybody wants to dress like one; singers, rappers all in onsies thrusting & gyrating all over the stage. That's what the fans want to see. Can you imagine if today's entertainers actually performed covered up, their fans would boycott?.

  • FukkFolks2018

    What is there to be puzzled about? She is the pot. Calling the kettle black. While bleaching all of her own blackness away. Yet sitting her ass up here using black women's culture as a crutch and weapon to down someone. You dont like Cardi. Okay dont like her. But dont use the LIE that she is damaging black women's culture as the reason or the rebuttal. What has A.Banks done for black women's culture? Anything? Its not hard. She can go back to scarifcing chickens in her closet.

  • Scromes1212

    Why should she have to change? Cause you want her to change?

  • FukkFolks2018

    All of what you just said.

  • Phillybruh

    She was asked a question. She answered it. And Cardi took offense too it and couldn't hold her own. I agree that Azealia is bit off. But some of her issues have stemmed from being a super talented young lady, but not light enough ( reason for bleaching) for mainstream success.

  • Ryan

    "Tool of the liberal media" - bitter folks try to insert politics into EVERYTHING. LOL

  • RespectSelf

    lmao

  • Phillybruh

    Because most of the time she looks uncomfortable wearing what she's wearing. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d9c3ca843b4225feae0db326b29ceb2bdaf403a609d4d78d1a3b528dcffd6390.png

  • Scromes1212

    Her lack of success has zero to do with her skin and everything to do with her personality but I agree she is very talented

  • SpillyNillie

    In so many ways this is the pot calling the kettle black.

  • Phillybruh

    I strongly disagree with that. If Azelia Banks came after a darkskin cardi none of yall would be capping for cardi b

  • Miss Thang

    Why do people act like there's something so wrong with being a stripper? seriously. He said that as an insult. Does he insult the men who frequent strip clubs? I mean, these strippers are just fulfilling a demand for their services.
    Shoot, if I had the body for it, I would strip. I have a Bachelor's degree still paying off student loans 10 years after graduating. I need help with these damn bills.

  • Scromes1212

    If we being honest most females look uncomfortable in all that makeup and high heels and waist trainers lol come on now

  • FukkFolks2018

    That is ON HER if she hasnt come to grips with her own skin color. Her comments about Cardi's fair skin irritate me too. We have had enough issues with race to know better than to keep colorism alive within our OWN community. And she is WAY off base about it being a reason as to her not achieving mainstream. Missy out here light skinned? Foxy? Was Lil Kim originally light? MC Lyte? Remy Ma? Any of those women light? Asking for a friend.

  • iWasteTime

    I knew it was bad and A Banks got to Cardi, when Cardi came back with a coherent and legible response, Then she deleted her ish but back now ...
    I hate the Cardi responds so so much ish.

  • Phillybruh

    But that's at a basketball game..is there not one place she doesn't have to be on?

  • RespectSelf

    Don't get me wrong... I do think Azealia Banks is very smart and makes a lot of valid points overall (not just this topic) I personally am not quick to dismiss her because of her other foolishness.... But I'm with Cardi in the sense that you can't be liking her for everything she is until she makes it. Now that she made it you don't like her???. But that's how folks are.

  • Jefferey Franklin
  • FukkFolks2018

    I just gave you about 10 examples of brown and even darker complexion female rappers who have achieved mainstream success. It has ZERO to do with it. For ONE time I agree with Scromes.

  • iWasteTime

    I knew it was bad and A Banks got to Cardi, when Cardi came back with a coherent and legible response, Then she deleted her ish but back now ...
    I hate the Cardi responds to so much ish.

  • MsVAllDay

    Right! I was actually like if you talked more like this I could actually support you.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Don't forget Jennifer Hudson and Fantasia!!!

  • RespectSelf

    lmao... her hair look comfortable though.

  • FukkFolks2018

    She gonna have to be thicker skinned than that. But A.Banks BEEN talking smack about Cardi since last Sept. I agree maybe not respond to any of that. IDK. Im sure it gets tiring tho.

  • Scromes1212

    Stripping is a means to a end if its done right. It's good money but the lifestyle can consume women.

  • Phillybruh

    With the exception of Missy are any of those other women getting or did they receive the mainstream acceptance that Nikki or Cardi is getting right now. Foxy was hella uncomfortable with the selling sex and it caused all kinds of issues with her label. Look at where trying to chase mainstream acceptance got kim looking nothing like who she used too be.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I doubt Cardi is off of Instagram, that’s all her slow azz know. Get thicker skin.

  • Phillybruh

    But that has always been Azaleas argument.

  • Trace da Ace

    MAAANNNN......... First off...WHO IF THE HELL IS AZELIA BANKS??? WHAT HAS THIS WANNA BE FAMOUS, BAT SHIT CRAZY ASS HEFFA TALKING ABOUT NOW?? She has came after EVERYBODY and folks pay her in dust....I am actually disappointed in Cardi for even entertaining this shit....why cant folks just make music and be happy?? Hell the women go at it more than the men do....and it is all bullshit.....Azaela...or however you spell this dumb ass name....why is she doing interviews??? what new and/or good music has she put out lately?? oh.. that is right...NOBODY WANTS TO WORK WITH YOU!!! You would have thought that his chick is in the ranks of Beyonce or Rihanna to be throwing so much shade and nothing to actually back up her career.......my point is she has NEVER been a intricate part of rap, or any genre of music for real.....so who is she to judge or say anything about anybody??? Cardi is going to have to learn to not respond to every insult thrown....make your haters your motivators and keep getting that money....cause at the end of the day...FUCK what any haters have to say about your come up....you made it and they didnt....point fucking blank......

  • RespectSelf

    Well did you see in that one interview where she was like she really like cardi and that cardi reminded her of herself. She reminded her of where she grew up at...If you ask me...Cardi has chilled out more that she famous lol She doesn't make all the same videos.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Missy might need to be the rule then bc she is one of the darkest women I listed. She is also the most talented. Foxy had a few songs on movie soundtracks. For their ERA yes all did achieve mainstream sucess on the level Cardi is right now. And lets gone head and throw another dark sister into this mix. Lauryn. Your assertion and the one of A. Banks that she is not seeing mainstream bc of color is a huge ass lie. Sorry not sorry. Bc I just gave you again a whole lot of examples to negate why that is a whole bunch of Bologna

  • FukkFolks2018

    I was naming the darker hued female rappers but BABY if I were to list out all the ones who sang too we would be here all day. Yes. Them too.

  • Phillybruh

    Cardi comes off as barely literate what is the reason white people flock to her, why is she touring with Bruno mars. Beyoncé father all but said his daughters complexion has contributed to her success. I will agree with its not the whole, but can we not act like Darker skin sisters in the rap gap are desirable in 2018. They don't appeal to the mainstream market the white kids.

  • iWasteTime

    You're right, I bet it does get tiring but you have to let some shit just go. Turn your comments off, don't search your, your sister or your BDs name ... just do you !
    Hope you a nice and alone Mother's Day ! I did not!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I find it very interesting that all of the 'woke' celebs have contradictions. Example: The guy Jesse with the green eyes on Grey's Anatomy, leaves his black woman that stood by him when he was coming up for a white woman. Kanye, says slavery was a choice and he would have been like Nat Turner, yet he had lipo suction because he cared what people thought about his looks. Like really, how can you lead a revolution and you can't handle being called fat, to the point that you had a WHOLE medical procedure? Donald Glover, the America video, but got a white woman and baby with her. Azealia Banks told the truth about Cardi, but she's bleaching her skin, tricking for RZA, and cutting up chickens for sacrifice. Monique, but she's only worried about HER check. Not black women in the industry, just HER situation. It's endless. It's almost as if they are black until black becomes an inconvenience to them, or there is a desire to have things that limit them to what is considered as black consciousness. To go back and forth the way these people do is mind boggling. It's like they all SPEAK the truth, but don't WALK the truth because it's just to damn hard to be that damn real.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im sorry. This is not true for me. A. Banks came for dark Reminisce Smith Mackie and I capped JUST AS HARD SIR. If not harder. I wish you would stop saying all this inaccurate mess to prove your point. Do I need to go pull that post to see exactly what it was I said about this bully?

  • deadellamore

    I like Cardi but they both make good points are correct. I don't know what is going on with our society but us parents need to do better. pay attention and be involved with your children.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I had a WONDERFUL weekend overall. Im so SORRY you had a bad Mother's DAY. Oh NOOOOO. *hugs you tight* Every mom deserves a nice Mother's Day.

    Yeah Cardi needs to learn to keep it moving. I will give her that.

  • MissHarlem

    Very valid. However because people are clouded in her personality they won't admit to the reality of what's being said.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Come on TRUTH!!!!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    what is the reason white people flock to her, why is she touring with Bruno mars.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    She has a helleva Marketing team.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Ok!!! I noticed, thanks.

  • abby500

    Exactly!!!!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    IF YOU DO NOT COME ALL THE WAY THE HELL THROUGH. Cardi is ignorant. But so is this bitch up top.

  • abby500

    I would.

  • EMILY POST

    Ohhhh maaannn wow a few people with some sense and a Microphone ...

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Stop hating !!! ? is the reaction ppl are getting when they speak up about this. She going let her live she being herself. It the moment my black asss get too loud in public or hell even if my phone autocorrect they’re to their I’m accused of being uneducated, ghetto, loud obnoxious and other things. I leave the cardintoooc alone because ppl don’t want to see that there is a reason she was pushed to the forefront so fast! And it had nothing to do with talent!

  • C Mack

    Team Cardi! - Azalea Banks used this same strategy to cancel Iggy Azalia by making herself seem so upset for black women. All Azealia attacks and beefs with are black women?.

    She’s jealous of Cardi’s success. Azalea’s a great rapper but she gets in her own way then hates on ppl who has what she wants.

  • Phillybruh

    How would you, they aren't pushing darkskin female rappers the way they do lightskin ones these days.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    She always talks this way it gets overshadowed by her rants that ppl choose to post but she talks this was a lot always have

  • BingBangBoom

    Big Toe! Lmao I can't deal with her. Everytime I hear about her I think about her slaughtering that chicken. Girl bye

  • MissHarlem

    Exactly. Highly annoying. Azalea once I sift through her ramblings she makes a lot of sense but because she's not packaged the way we would like she gets dismissed.

  • iWasteTime

    I expressed that wrong .. lol
    It was a Great day but I could have done with less people.... lol
    I'll take that hug any damn way!!

  • what?why

    No one is an EX Gang member ...

  • FukkFolks2018

    I can admit it. Cardi is type ignorant. There is still hope she can change. Its called growth. But the last time I stepped back and was like folks make mistakes. They grow from them. You gotta give folks room to mature...was Draya. I did find I was being harsh on her for allowing lil Gilbert Jr for eating dryer lint soooo many years before. Then here she comes and doesnt even want to sign his hw. So IDK.

  • free

    now i see that shyt every time i look at cardi face lol

  • Coy little wink

    Can we talk about vibes...auras. Cardi's aura is positive...Azaleas is negative. I don't care how illiterate or educated rappers sound when they speak. I can discern further than someone's speech thank goodness. If I were Cardi I wouldn't even clapback at this demon...

  • Phillybruh

    Everybody thought she was crazy when she said all those things about RZA but when he confirmed Russelll Crowe spit in her face and he did nothing.

  • Silknsatin

    How is she any different than any of these male rappers who glorify gang affiliations and drug dealing? And I don't remember anyone slut-shaming Eve for being an ex-stripper. Please leave this lady alone...jeeze!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    She gets dismissed by me sis bc she sacrifices chickens in her closet. And admitted it. Not on her packaging. She is just a big ass weirdo.

  • MissHarlem

    People can always grow that goes without saying. My stance since before lhh hasn't changed. I wish her well but I'm tired in general of her. Make that money cardi and stfu to every damn reply. If they don't matter then they don't mind.

  • Kemi

    Azealia is such a negative person! IMO coming for a pregnant woman is so uncalled for. Let Cardi be ( no pun intended)... everyone have the right to live their life accordingly. If Cardi doesn’t appeal to you then don’t patronize her music!

  • i troll it like i see it

    Maybe more artists will step up speak out against her too. Many mainstream artists help push her to the forefront, remixing Bodak Yellow, dancing to it and playing it on their IG pages, desperate to collaborate with her, next thing this gutter rat is blowing up and the whole "blackgirlmagic" thing was pushed to the side, let's be real.

  • MissHarlem

    I have no comment on her chickens or her rituals. Not for my spirit to dive into. However once I stopped dismissing her and listened I was like well damn there's a real brain there with sense. Who knew lol

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    To me, Cardi likes to play the victim. Oh they don't like me cuz I use to be a stripper, or they dont like me cuz of my accent, or they dont like me cuz I'm hood. But people actually relate to her more because of those things and how she overcame them. But at what point do take your new opportunities and try to better yourself? That's not being fake...that's actually the GLO UP!!! Azalia is certifiable I agree, she could hardly get her own point across during the interview. She had to come back with a written post after thinking about what she really wanted to say. But with that being said she told not one lie!!!! I read Cardi's response where she said she didnt ask to be famous, but yeah you did, and whether she likes it or not kids are looking up to her (not that its right, but it is what it is). She's bragging about how she dsnt use condoms in interviews and shyt and its wreckless. She needs to grow tf up, develop thicker skin and start taking responsibility for herself and the things she says and does because unfortunately the whole world is watching her right now.

  • Bossy704

    I always thought Cardi was Hispanic because of her accent.

  • bella28498 .

    I see no lies.....

  • MissHarlem

    Oh btw I just started giving her a chance not even a month ago so who am I ?

  • Miss Thang

    People did slut shame Eve for being an ex stripper, unfortunately. People are too damn judgmental about what folks do with their own bodies. I believe in the saying "Every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future."

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    Dryer lint!!!!! you make me sick!!!!!!!!!!!

  • i troll it like i see it

    Hell yes it was nasty, and if it were a black woman up there she would have been read for filth instead of praised.

  • Miss Thang

    agree 100%. Azaelia disturbs my spirit.

  • Silknsatin

    If they did...it certainly wasn't like this. They call her all kinds of names...so disrespectful. I knew Eve was a stripper, but it was never the main topic of conversation surrounding her. With Cardi, it's as if because she was a stripper, she shouldn't be taken seriously. I mean really, who cares.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I cant get past that or the skin bleaching. then holler about convo's black women were having. You didnt even like your own skin tone tho girl. I digress.

  • Kemi

    I just said the same thing above. She’s so negative.. she needs to get her life, get some dik or whatever she’s in to... Damn

  • Blaque Mahogany

    People have a hard time separating the messenger from the message. I get it. Nevertheless, she told no lies.

    Now let me google this Lord Jamar interview, because I didn't know he said something as well.

  • Miss Thang

    im still lmao that Kanye got lipo. His ass still fat. He shoulda lipoed the damn hotdogs on the back of his neck.

  • WHYJESUSWHY

    YES! Cardi's marketing team is building the hell out of her brand and its not just the ''white'' kids who are flocking to her, Cardi is Dominican as well and the Latinos are eating her music up like Arroz con Gandules.... She has a massive Latino fan base as does Bruno so putting the two of them together was guaranteed success.. Azalea doesn't make numbers with records or concerts sales. She is her own worse enemy...

  • Simone

    Some people will turn Azealia Banks' words into something deep and profound but it's not. It's envy, plain and simple. She loved Cardi B. Cardi B. blew up and got successful, now she hates her all of a sudden.
    http://www.xxlmag.com/news/2017/09/cardi-b-azealia-banks-video-dancing-bodak-yellow/

  • i troll it like i see it

    I really don't think that's true, skin color does have a lot to do with it. Look at how mediocre singers like Jhene Aiko are constantly promoted. There is a great female artist named Keléla, (dark skin black girl) where is her music played? No promotion whatsoever. Azalea Banks did ruin her reputation acting like a crazy person but she spoke facts this past week. She's more talented than Cardi B, but will never blow up like she did.

  • MissHarlem

    I never will get over that. I can take something from anyone whether I like agree or disagree when facts are involved. I don't have to like ya to agree.

  • Trace da Ace

    My thoughts 1000%....its like folks always want to say they are proud of somebody come up...but then dog them out on how they came up....or what type of situation they are coming from.....Cardi may be off sometimes, but one thing she is is humble...alot of female rappers need to be the same instead of always going at each other...smdh

  • Applebootay

    I totally agree, however, it shouldn't be a personal vendetta with CardiB, this is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay bigger than CardiB. Everything said about her is who she was before her fame and will remain afterwards. Appropriation. EVERY race wants to be us...they don't want the struggle that comes with being black but they're jealous that we are the chosen people. Not saying Cardi is, she is just being herself and the world we now live in where you can get rich and be famous for eating noodles on YT, everything is acceptable. Taking personal shots at her or her talent is waayy off base. Those howling loudest about cultural appropriation do not own the culture they claim to be defending. This is just another form of xenophobia

  • Gloria

    lmao you are so right. i can't stand his neck

  • Gloria

    YASSSSSS!

  • PhillyFacts

    Unfortunately she’s about to become a mother, which is tragic because she doesn’t take ownership for none of her wreckless behavior. Hopefully this child will change her outlook....

  • FukkFolks2018

    Nobody wants to see or acknow. these facts. Not one person. Now she is telling the truth. She really needs to take her bipolar flip flopping meds.

  • Trace da Ace

    Oh....one last thought....this heffa talks about cultural appropriation....soooo....with that being said...what about DJ Khalid???? How many of his songs is she bumping in her Uber??? He is not black....so does that work for him as well??? This is just an example of many "non black" rappers, singers whatever that should be put in that same box that she wants to put Cardi and other "non-black" rappers in......jus saying....

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I see a lot of people asking how someone could go from liking Cardi B when she was simply an IG famous stripper to disliking her now that she is famous.

    Let me give you a simple (read:remedial) analogy. Have you ever been amused by a family member's behavior privately, but embarrassed by their behavior publicly? Or have you ever taken a picture at one angle/light and it was dope and then in another light/angle you can clearly see the toothpaste residue all over the damn mirror?

    When Cardi was a nobody, her antics were not being glorified or normalized. People viewed her and assessed her differently. Now she is rap superstar that doesn't write her raps, can't read/write, can't speak, promotes promiscuity, gang culture, and irresponsibility. Her exposure further exposed her character. You would have to be an idiot NOT to see that.

  • Yes, I Said That

    We have to just be thankful that the truth is being said at all! Hopefully, their little morsels of truth give those that truly talk the talk and walk/live it the strength to boldly go further in the conversation. Hopefully, those morsels of truth also get to the powers that be (tptb) to signal to them the people are aware of their back door deals and destructive agendas; therefore, forcing tptb to just let black folks live without systematic racism/restrictions. Grandma used to always say, "sometimes, its not the messenger you need to pay attention to, its the message that needs your full attention".

  • Branch Davidian

    Maybe Azaelia and Russell Crowe can do a duet...

  • Scromes1212

    What about Sza? Jhene Aiko is not as successful as Sza.

  • missmiami305

    Cardi ain’t built for the industry. AZEALIA May be a lot of things but the bih is smart and ain’t tell no lies. Cardi is too insecure. She finds the time to respond to lil nobodies on IG. She supposed to be sooooo bad, hood, blood affiliated or whatever she claimed; but she folds under pressure.

  • Miss Thang

    I think it also depends on your image. I think Cardi capitalized off her looks and/or sexuality more than Eve ever did. I don't remember Eve trying to be sexy as a rapper.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I think people may just be wondering why a female rapper has to be a trash bag, and horrible influence, to make it big time. Appearing on Ellen, Kimmel, SNL, being played non damn stop, other big artists desperate to collaborate with them, etc. I'm reading comments with folks bringing up Eve and Fozy Brown, saying they did it too. Lets stay in the 21st Century. I'm reading comments comparing Cardi to men, that's an easy out. Yes, sleazy rappers are making it but so are artists like Kendrick Lamar. It's seems to be very different for women.
    As far as the FEMALE rappers go, it appears the semi talented, ultra trashy ones like Cardi, get to reach the stars and I believe some folks are simply asking why.

  • Coy little wink

    Cardi is black...why do people think she is not black? Her mom is from Trinidad. Nicki Minaj is from Trinidad. Rihanna is from Barbados. Aren't they black? Like La la and Zoe Saldana are black?

  • i troll it like i see it

    You know what, Thank god for Sza. Thank god mainstream media threw a black girl a bone because then nobody would have a comeback in regards to black girls going mainstream. She is officially the black girl go to.

  • Miss Thang

    "coming for a pregnant woman is so uncalled for." Reeeeally??? We're reeeeally doing this in 2018?? lmao come on now. stop it.

  • Greatgrape37

    There's black and then there's BLACK...

  • MyaCompton

    Go get a job!! Ding ding ding ? Where your dignity and self respect isnt valued but respected!

  • Greatgrape37

    of course they do.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. So every from Trinidad and Barbados is Black? What about Africa? Is everyone from Australia white? I don't understand why black people have such a hard time processing this information...

  • Greatgrape37

    They're both bad.

  • Shira Harding-James

    I enjoyed Azealia’s interview, unfortunately everything she said was the truth. But Azealia has to understand is that not everyone strives to be influential role models. Cardi has always maintained that she is isn’t a role model, she is flawed and doesn’t want young girls to look up to her.

  • Coy little wink

    I'm asking a real question...do u need someone's ancestry results or do u look at their skin color...or is it just up to them to identify themselves like Rachel dolezal...Idk that's why I'm asking why do people say she is not black?? The writeup seems to say she is not black...

  • Kemi

    Yes really !!! I’m being partial btw cos I like Cardi B... don’t take what I wrote literally. I can’t stand Azealia negative spirit.

  • Shawty

    If Azealia spent as much time on her music as she does trolling other folks, she just may have a hit. She focuses on everything else and not enough on her own ish. If you weren't basically a nobody, we might hear you but because we see hate coming for her pores, its just noise. I just for the record....I am NOT a Cardi fan. I listen to NONE of her music.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yes it's based on heritage.

    No, you can't self identify.

  • missmiami305

    Explain her 360 deal. I don’t know how that works

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    I don't think the baby will change her. She needs to do some reflecting and soul searching and come to understand that just because she comes from where she comes from physically, doesn't mean she has to stay there mentally.

  • Phillybruh

    I mean that is nice too say, but it isn't the reality. She's about to have a girl.

  • FukkFolks2018

    To that I will say with great power comes great responsibility. Whether she wants to be a role model or NOT...the younger girls are indeed looking to her. Now that is what I want her to get. That and for her to stop responding.

  • Shira Harding-James

    What started it

  • sherri2016

    Both of them shouldn't speak for us Positive Black women Azaleia bleached her skin and Cardi shouldn't talk period they both represent whats wrong with how people view us i agree with the message just not the messenger

  • Shira Harding-James

    Whitney was caramel so don’t forget her too

  • MyaCompton

    It’s always been a reason why society the industry and this country as a whole has plotted against blacks and to gang us against each other and promote the stereotype of our race as glorication through silent self destruction! If blacks were unified the power of the black race would destroy the white mans strategy snd power of control! Truthfully black is golden!! kings and queens...they know that and the hate is deep and real! So since day one they fought to strip the black race of who thry truly are!

  • iWasteTime

    In a 360 deal the label offeresto support the artist with music and other aspects of an entertainer's life. In return the label gets a cut of everything associated with the artist. Touring, merchandise, endorsement, club fees, movie and tv appearances etc etc

  • FukkFolks2018

    I agree but Im not going to say she is nobody. everyone is somebody. Whether you sacrifice chickens. Tell your own fellow black woman to report back to the fields and go pick cotton. She is somebody. Somebody loves her out here. But I need her to love herself before making all these deragatory comments about the next. Truth or not she has no room trying to pretend she is so here for the uplifting of black women/people period. She is not.

  • Coy little wink

    Lol...yes tell me more...

  • Yes, I Said That

    I like the way Eve and Queen Latifah used their fame to eventually create a well rounded life for themselves, their family's and showed the world additional examples of black women's awesome capabilities, which is something I hope Cardi, Azelia and all black singers/rappers do with their fame. "Whom much is given, much is required" with the money and resources fame brings, there is no excuse for any celebrity to continue to be illiterate, gang banging, and just acting like a fool on the daily.

  • Ozad

    Crazy!! she crazy like a fox...I find Azealia to be very intelligent and well spoken and actually quite likeable...she doesn't bite her tongue and could care less what we think about it...I enjoyed the interview and her

  • Miss Thang

    Why are you assuming I don't have a job?

  • Miss Thang

    360 deal means she's broke lol

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Is there not a difference between a global/national conversation and an individual/targeted conversation? AB's point is that the narrative and imagery has changed due to Cardi B's success and the glorification of her ignorance. AB's comments at one person did not globally/nationally shift the conversation or the imagery/narrative that was being promoted. Not excusing her behavior---just trying to compartmentalize.

    Am I making sense? I'm hungry and I feel like I'm dying.

  • Coy little wink

    Lol...so you can't speak to Cardi's heritage? I'm asking about her specifically...I think a lot of the hate stems from people thinking she is not black...

  • Sofiyah Balthazar

    AB was right about everything she mentioned about CB. I dont hate Cardi but I just can't rap me head around her brand. Her performance at Coachella was tacky as hell looking like a dog in heat while you are pregnant. Come on now how disgusting can that be. Whether you asked to be a role model or not young girls are going to flock towards that. People think that ish is cute when it's not.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    What does have to do with so many black despising the successes of other each other. I'm not one of those people who pretend like I am never upset over others success(especially if I want the same) but I am not going to sit around and hate every little thing someone else does......at some point its its like.....if your that bitter over someone else living they life.....then just kill yourself.........

  • Miss Thang

    Cardi is black hispanic.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    FOR THE RECORD-- Azealia said that bleached due to a hyper-pigmentation. She said she had an outbreak and in order to regulate her skin, she bleached.

    The ironic thing is even if she is lying, and she bleached in an effort to be more appealing to mainstream, it still comports with her argument. That light skin is preferred EVEN at the expense of talent.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I see where you're coming from and I respect that. The only problem is that with celebrities being the focal point in today's youth, they get lost in what the celeb does, not says. I'll give you an example: If your mother tells you not to let a man put his hands on you, but your father just knocked out her two front teeth. People say we need to help the black youth, but then brag about selling drugs on the street corner. Your mother is right, you should never let a man beat on you. That's good advice. But if she shows you something else, you are going to go with the action, not the words. True, we need to help our young black youth find a better life. But if they see that same person was selling drugs themselves, then they may take that message as 'don't sell drugs for a long time' instead of go get an education, get your SAT scores up, apply for colleges, get a weekend job to help pay for college, etc. Sometimes, the message gets lost by the messenger because they aren't living what THEY are talking. I hope I made sense and I appreciate your reply.

  • Phillybruh

    Jayz gotta tour with Beyoncé to pay his off...

  • FukkFolks2018

    So since you are clarifying some of her actions, why did she call a black woman a tar baby and told her to report to the cotton field? Told the girl to scrub her blackness off and to bleach too. Surely that too was a mistake. Had to be.

  • Coy little wink

    Yes...but the writeup

  • gail fowler

    Why the hate and dislike on Cardi B is it jealousy and envy
    because these individuals have not made it to the top. It seems Azealia Banks is all about negative publicity when it comes to promoting herself and Lord Jamar I do not even know who the hell he is.
    Cardi B is no longer a stripper, she is no longer gang banging, although
    the past life style she had before is how she got to making money moves. There is these antiquate beliefs that people have to act a certain way or be a certain way instead of just being themselves; which is what Cardi B is doing and some people don't like it, if you do not like her don’t watch her, but she is who she is without being unapologetic.

    Therefore if she can rise to the top then so can other young
    girls they can see that it is possible to change your way of life for the
    better good and what celebrity has ever been asked to be a role model it comes along with the fame. In addition, everybody does not get the opportunity to do better either through education or following a dream to get out of their neighborhood that may be infested with drugs and or gun violence. Black people we have got to do better in supporting each other there are more important things to address such as institutional racism, systemic racism and our black men and young men and women being killed in the streets. We as Africa Americans seem to be the only race that does not stick together even the white people stand together and stick up for Trump and we all know what he has done to this country since being in office.

  • Owww76

    Ditto same here! Love her and her music. Let her be outspoken. Males can get away with it why not her. She also brought up some very good points because i dont understand the hype around Cardi at all.Her rapping leaves a lot to be desired. Then i heard people screaming oh she real she real she real. i am like that is all good and fine but what about TALENT. Her personality outranks her lack of talent.

  • Anunnaki
  • Blaque Mahogany

    I don't remember saying bleaching her skin was a mistake. Nor am I attempting to excuse her behavior. I just don't see how that negates any of the other points she made. We can talk about it and we can talk about Cardi B's colorist remarks and the many times that she has referred to dark skin women as roaches, or the hyper aggression she displays towards black (specifically brown skin and dark skin women).

    I don't know that I believe the hyper-pigmentation justification. It's possible. It's also possible that she has internalized anti-blackness and it is manifesting through her actions and the way she communicates with her FELLOW black sisters. Personally, I'm inclined to give leniency to my own.

  • Owww76

    There was nothing cute or funny about that performance at all. It is what Azealia is speaking of, had it been a black woman it woulda been a different story.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She has said that her father is Dominican and her mother is from Trinidad. She has never self-identified as a black woman. I think she has recently started making references to being an Afro-Latina. Does that answer your question.

    Yes, I think Afro-Latina's are black (hence Afro). However, I don't know that she is an Afro-Latina. I think she is light skin latina.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    What DID AZALEA SAY WRONG? I AGREE WITH HER WHOLE HEARTEDLY! DON'T KILL THE MESSENGER.. ABOUT TIME SOMEBODY SPOKE UP! I DON'T CARE WHI SAID IT.. GLAD IT WAS SAID! ALL THIS DAYSUM FAUKERY, BAFOONERY AND ACCEPTANCE OF THIS MESS!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Well she spoke for me and I'll accept and the award!

  • missmiami305

    So she really isn’t signed to Atlantic? Also, so how does she get paid lmao. That’s why she is being pushed on the masses. They want a return on their investment. Why would she sign that lol. That means everything goes back to the label or is taken from her cut? Like 50%. She is crazy to sign that garbage

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I hate when people act as if discussing racism or colorism, somehow keeps racism and colorism alive. As if not talking about it, will make it end/disappear. If only black people would stop talking about racism and colorism, this whole system of white supremacy would crumble.

    Then they say stuff like, "why is it that we are always worried about skin tone in our own community"? The answer- white supremacy. Which is, coincidentally, AB's entire dam point.

    Ugh.

  • Toni Toni Toni

    EXACTLY!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I saw her on TV once with her wig off. She had regular cornrowed hair under there like many black women do. She's a light skinned Afro-Latina.

  • dontgetblocked

    Any woman who would twerk with a bastard baby in her stomach...need I say more.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Too far...

  • Owww76

    She is a role model once that wack ass song went number one. These lil girls are watching and emulating her so own it up. Also she better enjoy it because unfortunately female rappers have a very short shelf life & i can't see her branching off in any other areas of entertainment. She is just gonna be the Charo of hip hop for now.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm confused. I feel like I am overlooking a key piece of information. The cornrows confirmed her ethnicity? Or the texture of her hair?

  • Owww76

    She a new artist she aint got no options She had to take the deal and keep it moving. She not getting paid like that. The label and managers are eating off of her. She might get money from touring and that is it.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • Owww76

    That was horrible when all of that was revealed. People was so quick to call her crazy and this that and the third but RZA ain't do nada to defend that girl and her movie suffered because of it. I like Azealia, she is very talented and intelligent. People get pissed when they turn the mirror on society. She brought up some very good points in her interview.

  • missmiami305

    I’ve been using Kojic Acide soap which is a natural light we for hyper-pigmentation and it has worked miracles. My Dermatologist had me on her product and that was one of the ingredients along with Licorce. Both work. I ordered both items when i ran out. Look up Dr. Woolery-Llyod.

    What's messed up about this comment is not even Azelia went this far. She just pointed out the difference in treatment.

  • ZZZ

    Don't even know who this person is or what music she has out but a Los Angeles hip hop radio station this morning went into Azealia Bank's a$$ stating how she is always discounting black females in the music business just to get people talking about her. What music has she done?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    On got damn topic... You bytches is salty straight sodium real jelly . ... https://youtu.be/fgD-4JN4jw4

  • Coy little wink

    I guess what I'm getting at is that we don't know anyone's heritage but we make assumptions based on skin color...and what people self identify as...but that may not be accurate

  • iWasteTime

    She is signed to Atlantic. They work out the percentages for the label and her management and then she gets paid.
    Let's say they take 15% of touring revenue, management gets 5%, out of a hundred touring dollars she'll get $80. I'm sure the percentages are higher.
    What you want is a record deal and your endorsements, touring, merchandise separate, so the label recoups from the music and you live off the other opportunities.

  • FukkFolks2018

    By name calling? Oh yeah that was just a simple pointing out of treatment. It sure was.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Man listen completely shocked ... Damn proud of Cardi ... I will lift this one up.... All day.... Bytches is literally salty ...

  • rayne215

    its crazy how off base everyone is in regards to cardi. calling her everything but a child of god, its sad. AZ calling her illiterate when she never had a conversation with her is crazy. all cardi did sign with atlantic records and THEY are behind her cross over success with bruno etc etc.thats what major label does. you can be both latina and black. its too much in this cardi conversation. yall let any and every raggedy male artist finesse the game but so hung up cardi? i just dont get it.

    Cardi and her mix matched family are heavely into Santeria. How the hell do y'all think that bird made it this far? She showed her altars plenty of times on her snaps and instagram. Bitch out here using the LOA and demons for fame and fourtune. Now it's backfiring because the dumb broad and her family didn't make a big enough sacrifice. Oh well she's falling like I knew she would. Don't be shocked, surprised etc if someone close to her ends up dead.

    Exactly..When the pot is calling the kettle black and they on the same stove nobody listens.

  • Ejai

    It was a light hearted performance.... absolutely nothing was wrong with it.

  • Dowoop

    There are darker women than her that has been successful and lighter, more talented women than her who have not been successful.

  • Dowoop

    She is just trying to excuse her self hate for her skin colour.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    I don't care for Cardi B nor her music.Her rap and flow is wack and tacky and so is she. She's just another fake racist Hispanic from the Bronx. AB and Lord Jamar told the truth.

  • Dowoop

    Lauryn Hill

  • Dowoop

    Keke Wyatt is a very talented, light skinned female but her light skin didn't do anything for her.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I dont think that is it either. For either one. Fantasia was busy chasing married ass men at a very integral stage of her career and messed up NUMEROUS opportunities. One of which was Broadway. Jennifer's whole family got killed right when her star REALLY started to take off so that is understandable. She has an Oscar so I think that speaks for itself as far as talent. But basically the world sadly will not wait on you to overcome whatever it is you are going through. And neither will your record company, mgmt team etc. Furthermore, If we are basing Idol success on skincolor in this case why hasnt Jordin Sparks blew the hell up? According to your theory that it plays such a huge role she surely should be big as hell now...no?

  • i troll it like i see it

    Why are people having to dig so far back into time to contradict, can we talk about current artists.

  • truthspeaker

    WHERE'S THE LIE! IT IS VERY MUCH SCARY THAT SHE, ALONG WITH SEVERAL OTHER, BROKEN ENGLISH SPEAKING ARTIST (HIPHOP) ARE INFLUENCING OUR CULTURE THIS MUCH. SPEAKS VOLUMES ON WHERE WE ARE AT.

    Exactly, you can be a fool in your home all day home in private I don't care, but don't go knocking door to door, getting easily influenced youth to join in with you, now that's a problem. I saw her one time on TV before the music career, and thought to myself this woman has got to be the most ghetto piece of trash I've ever seen. I changed the channel, did not take note of her name, did not care. A year later she was everywhere.

  • EScrazy

    She spoke so well and eloquently. Cardi definitely needs to be dumped and since when did Cardi identify as black? I could’ve sworn she was 100% Puerto Rican? Everybody wanna play black until it’s time to pay back....

  • i troll it like i see it

    Why do people like to act like they don't know what you are talking about? Keke is an excellent singer, I've seen her live, the voice is for real, but she started her career almost 20 years ago. Many artists have come and went since then. Some have been lucky enough to stay highly relevant, such as Beyoncé, but is it common? I meant, can we stick with artists in Cardi B same era.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Same era. Light skinned but aint blew up yep. Tinasahe vs. Sevyn Streeter. One is light. One is darker. One is bigger than the other. Sevyn. Is that okay? We used SZA and Jhene. But what about SZA and Kehlani? Is that one okay? Like there are examples, we give them to yall. Yall still hate those examples.

  • i troll it like i see it

    You're right I hated it. None of those chicks are remarkable in anyway, except for Sza.

AND A PREGNANT CHICK IS A EASY TARGET.

    Anyone who DOESN"T know this woman from her TV show or whatever she does is sitting there scratching their heads like, wha???? She got to where she is the same way all these reality TV ppl do, just by showing up in y'all living rooms where you think they're your friend and you know them. You follow them on IG and Twitter thinking you literally know these ppl when it was proven years ago reality TV is nobody's reality. It's insulting that she can get away with acting like a "rat" cuz that's the persona she projects to ppl like us who don't know her and she's applauded, hosting SNL, and all that. They WANT us to be ignorant and will support ppl like her to indeed push this agenda of dumbing down America. but guess what, Folks, we're educated and those of us who aren't formally are informally, with street knowledge. This lady came up from the stripper pole, good for her. Next >>>>>>>> we have real important sh*t to discuss while y'all try to translate her speech.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Hey I agree, but I also think some of what she had to say in that interview and online were true statements. It is unfortunate that her career was derailed, because she was good.

  • the guest

    Lord Jamar is a woman beater. Most strippers are overcoming domestic and family abuse and strip to survive. It is far from my reality but I can’t pass elitist judgement on a position I’ve never been in.

    Cardi B doesn’t have to be a role model. Millions of girls around the world are already living her former life. This whole issue is showing the world that girls, especially girls of color, must have options and resources or they will fall victim to surviving by any means.

    The gangs and strip clubs are preying on girls with broken homes and no options. Instagram is filled with girls with broken homes and no options waiting to catch a break.

  • Shira Harding-James

    And that will be her life she has to live, not mine. I’m my own daughters role model. Although their are plenty of great brown girls/women influencers, I don’t depend on anyone else to show my daughter what respect and class looks like. ?????

  • Shira Harding-James

    Very true, but I’m not holding Cardi B accountable for what I as a parent should be doing at home. I’m holding the parents ACCOUNTABLE. I’m my own children’s role model, I don’t depend on anyone else to show them class, dignity, and respect for self and others.

  • TMW

    I have NEVER heard a song by Azealia Banks, but I know about every internet beef she has started with successful female artists. She comes off as petty and jealous to me, so even if she made any sense in anything she said, I can’t get past that.

    EDIT: BITTER. That’s the other word I was looking for. Azealia comes off as bitter.

    Beyonce pop puzzy in thongs and get a pass. Her hair really dark brown but she wear blonde WEAVE AND WIGS every damn day almost and get a pass. Beyonce married an alleged drug dealer but get a pass. Beyonce STILL married to a cheater but get a pass. What kind of example is BEYONCE setting? She let (didn't try to stop) her sis from beating Jay's ass (the father of her kids) but gets a pass...YET y'all wanna go in on Cardi? Man get the fk outta here man!

    Cardi not black no one making black women support this broad! You support her because you're no better! Black women are the reason Cardi sells. Y'all accept her as black even though she is not. She has called us roaches YET y'all still bump her music, follow her on the gram, watch her videos, and buy her music. It shouldn't take for Azalelia to say what's common fkin SENSE! We don't support each other enough but praise light skin/mixed/"exotic" which is why beyonce mediocre voice and Cardi illiterate azz have been able to rape us financially.

    Non mixed black women are the reason these chicks exist today! We paved the way for them but let them dog us, take our men and clown our features! Fk them!

    There will be more Cardi's because black men and women don't support their own! Damn Black Americans are such self haters! Cupcakke my bish. Jelly rolls and all I don't give a damn, I fk with her plus she can spit. I will support Remy too, Lil Kim, and any SISTA with melanin who not using their skin tone and features to sell.

    These biracial and light skinned people aren't black so why support them! These same light skins who are mixed hate their black side even though their other race of people won't accept them as one of theirs! Why the hell we accept other people's trash as our treasure?!!

  • justsayin

    Cardi needs to shutUp. Stop responding to these haters/losers . They say her name to get attention. They thirsty. Don’t let other people stop your coins. Get Professional Licensed ArmedBodyguards. Violence taking place, with her name being involved. It’s not a goodLook. She better calm down and enjoy life. People talked about Jesus. She’s in good company.

  • Jussjess25

    Did she really break her down tho?? Sounds like the same hate she always spews.. I just cant reallt get with her, all she does is blame others for why she not hot. Its annoying aleady. Dont you think?

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    "Its like the elite want to push an agenda of ignorance" well that's been the plan all along.

    If you notice, the woke rappers who aren't talking about k?lling someone, dropping Molly's, in someone's drink, taking the pvssy (rape), lústing over fake, plastic bodies, bragging òn how much money, cars and women they have and how broke and jeoulous everyone eles is, never get too much airplay. Thats by design and has been happening since the 90's. Listen to some of the rap from back then (Tupac, Jay Z, Biggie, Snoop). They repped the gâng, m?rder and drug life too. They were just men doing it.

  • Fire & Ice

    Cardi and her crew, clearly wasn't ready for Ms. Banks. I kind of feel sorry for her, especially being pregnant. BUT in that industry, you MUST have thick skin....she better ask Nikki. Welcome to the game hun.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    Speaking of grower not a show-er, Jamar I remember that scene from OZ.

    Topic: I'm not a Cardi fan because I'm just not a fan of most of this music out now. I do think lighter skinned females get away with acting the same way darker females do. I also believe firmly that anybody can be made into a star. Someone with just as much hustle as Cardi is still moonlighting and mopping floors at night. Yeah Sis, ur hustling, but lets stop acting like it was that alone. Good luck.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    yeah, it's almost like you being at odds with a family member and then sm1 come up thinking they can do what you do (to said family member). Well, that's how I'm seeing it.

    AB's like yeah, case in point, I said those things and look how y'all on my ass about it. Cardi called chicks roaches or worse and the world's bopping to her songs and passing with 'oh, that's just who she is.'

  • i troll it like i see it

    And who came out on top! I'll give you a hint, she has adult acne and meaty shapeless thunder thighs and calves complete with cankles.

    The music industry is lame... and Colorstruck... She just said the obvious.

  • deanya

    You can't really call out cardi without calling out Nicki ?? . They're literally they same person lol . Where was all this kinda talk when Nicki A LIGHT SKIN BLACK WOMAN at when she was selling sex and being" fake bi sexaul"? I mean if we gon talk about cardi then let's talk about all These Black men cappin for all these lame wanna be model chicks aka blac Chyna . Black male rappers literally have light skin"hoes" with fake bodies up and down on their videos but yet cardi is the problem?? Lol ok ??

  • Patricia

    azalea might need to sacrifice some more chickens and whatnot to reach cardi level. shes not sleeping w the right higher ups or something. you gotta sacrifice something to get $$$$ and fame

    More of our high school teenage girls who look up to cardi B thinks its ok to be a stipper. "Look at Cardi she was a strippe."

  • Phillybruh

    Well, Cardi opened the door. To an argument she couldn't win. Nowhere did it say Cardi had to ever acknowledge what she said. But because Azalia gets painted with the crazy brush most her own doing, she thought this was an easy win. She learned over the weekend though....lol

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Why do people pay attention FrontLawnBush Banks? Has she said/done anything that is of value? I agree that certain people being of influence is scary and even dangerous. That's why parents have to teach and mentor their OWN children, so they KNOW to look past certain people.

    Cardi's come up story and persistence is cool. She seems like an overall cool person, but again I ask, why is anyone listening to Ms Banks when she generally is just on a bandwagon bi-polar rant? How did she end up on the BC? Are they running out of guest options?

  • Quagsire!

    Sure ya right! And we play right into the media’s hands.

  • kennedy220

    right..I'm like it was light hearted...if Tiffany H had done it..and what if it was a group of African women doing their regular dances would these commentators be saying the same thing??

  • kennedy220

    true...while they are known artist ..they are not at that mainstream level of success a la light skinned bey..im not hating on bey but...when have we seen a deep deep chocolate female artist with the same level of success..top 40 music, endorsements etc...

  • kennedy220

    kjelela does have promo..well at least in nyc...I've seen more promo for her here than jhene...matter of fact..I found out about Kelela though mostly white friends...but skin color does play a lot into it when it comes to being marketed ..i'm.waiting on a dark chocolate girl to become bigger than MJ

  • Ant Hill

    no you are just a dumb used up jumpoff like cardi b. #fixed

  • kennedy220

    I always thought Sevyn could be Beyonce's dark skinned competition but she hasn't been able to break into the top 40 like that. she's decent at singing and dancing live...Tinasahe is struggling herself though...I'm just getting into her and she's been on for a min I know....SZA is dark and has that audience that pays the bills we'll see what happens next with her...

  • kennedy220

    Azelia has come after a dark skinned anyone though..I was mad at her when she went after Erika Badu lol

  • kennedy220

    hmmm..but some of them weren't played on top 40 radio stations which reaches a wide audience as well. Nicki and Cardi are being played even on the white stations now that wouldn't play Kim or foxy back then...

  • Karen Brady

    LOL.. same here

  • i troll it like i see it

    Aside from the fact that she reminded me of cheap white trash, the music isn't all that either. She's an overrated artist, I haven't been a fan of the music since Fallen came out decades ago. But to each their own.

  • jayhawkpride

    Not only do they want to push an agenda of ignorance, they'd rather get there ignorance from non-blacks! That kills two birds with one stone. They steal our culture and they don't have to see us!!

  • i troll it like i see it

    I'd like to discuss the skin bleaching for a moment because several folks have brought that up as if they don't know how deep this poisonous colorism mindset goes. Does it not scream "desperate and insecure" when someone resorts to something like that? I have had beautiful dark skinned black people both male and female, tell me about how they were bullied about their skin color and not just from kids at school, their own families. You see the effect this emotional trauma has on people well into adult hood. Dark black men will desperately try to distance themselves from dark black women, having children with anyone that doesn't look like them, bashing dark black women publically, and women are feeling insecure, like they are not good enough and lashing out at others, or applying dangerous chemicals to their skin, in order to feel accepted? It's ridiculous. You have people resentful of their own color, they will even laugh and side with people, who are making fun of them.

    I hate it when I see or hear of someone who feels they need to bleach their skin to feel relevant or on equal ground with lighter skinned blacks, but look at how many folks on this thread alone are totally dismissive of the issue. I believe Azalea Banks tried to lighten her skin as a desperate attempt to be what so many people seem to want these days. Black in the inside, but as close to white on the outside as you can get. It's pretty sickening how folks are ignoring that part.

  • i troll it like i see it

    And black folks are defending her like their lives depended on it, pretty sure she and her sister Hennessy wouldn't spit on your black ass if you were on fire. As ratchet as they both are they still have a superiority complex based on skin color and hair texture and those are the the simple facts. They are racist hispanics, just like you said, that we have been stupid enough to elevate. I don't know why people are rushing to this hoes aid all the time! Newsflash, she is not your friend!

  • i troll it like i see it

    Well maybe she should do like Kylie did while pregnant and chill with the social media presence.

  • i troll it like i see it

    This is true...I voiced an opposing view on a certain biracial female artist yesterday. Of course someone comes riding up on their white horse, cape blowing in the wind to defend her appearance, even through the description I gave of her thunderous thighs was true. I think it may be instinct for some folks to defend them.

  • NY_bornNraised

    exactly, she has a lot of black industry ladies. If was Cardi I would have left it alone and counted my coins.

  • AnotherBlackGirl

    Many Black people just don't know any better.

  • missmiami305

  • MocaPretty

    I agree. That is the agenda all this ignorant foolery going on in hip hop is just an all time level of ridiculousness

  • Yes, I Said That

    Those dark skin women you listed are not equally embraced in the mainstream as their white counterparts. The mainstream entertainment industry isn't breaking their necks to catapult black women equally within its domain. Lupita, Viola and Kerry Washington have all been talking about their struggles getting decent acting jobs that pay the same as white women. Viola and Kerry have both started their own production companies due to their hardships to make movies for themselves and other black women. Viola has just about every acting award known to man but she said in an insightful interview that she keeps getting movie scripts to play the white lead's best friend or girl from the left. Sza quit music early last year because she wasn't getting anywhere. All the music industry would let her do is make music underground and just write for the only two black women singers that mainstream music would elevate/tolerate (Rihanna & Beyonce). The music industry is so toxic that SZA says she plans to quit again. The industry pulled her out of TDEs has been pile because people were noticing the lack of black female singers with major promotion in mainstream music.

    Serena couldn't get mainstream endorsements for years. It didn't change until Tennis' white female cash cow got caught in a Russian dopeing scandal and Tennis didn't have another white girl that was winning. Mainstream music doesn't want Missy Elliot or Remy Ma anymore. How many times has Missy tried to come back but has been delayed? The mainstream wants to push mediocre rap from white and racially ambiguous chicks. Tink and Seven Streeter had their debut albums pushed back for several times which turned into years. Tink's album was never released. Kenya Moore, Porsche and Nene are stuck in the ratchet reality TV world. Mainstream ain't trying to give them bigger platforms. They tried with Nene but her bad attitude ruined that and tptb set her up to be a stereotypical black woman in mainstream offerings. Gabrielle Union and Gabourey are stuck making mostly movies made for black audiences. I'm waiting for them, Viola, Lupita, and Kerry Washington to be considered for and make the same roles and money as Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep. But its not going to happen, especially in the era of Trump. Mainstream only likes its black women a certain way, which is in our place (entertaining them from afar, giving them new hip ways to say words and dress, and they will reward us by letting on two black women, every 15 years, to make major money moves in the entertainment industry).

  • Roxie Moxie

    Damn. I'm glad my father was in my life! He wasn't perfect but he was there for me. He told me I was beautiful, he told me I was bright, he told me these things so that another n*gga didn't have to try and gas me to get in between my legs. :-) I was told, 'Damn, you are gorgeous". My response was "thanks, but I already know". What else you got bruh?

    So sad that these girls are looking for father figures.

  • Intellectual by Nature!

    Tell me how you really feel! ?. I get it, though. Love the candor.

    It is not just "girls from broken homes" as Sasha Obama (whose daddy was the president of these United States) was backstage with Cardi and her six-time over baby daddy.

  • facingrealit1

    What was Sasha Obama looking for at Cardi last concert? And how many times have we seen Malia Obama all smoked up and clowning in public at concerts? Don't these girls have a father figure?

  • Roxie Moxie

    I don't follow what Malia and Sasha do so I can't comment on that.

    But based off of your information, stripping and taking your clothes off in front of unknown men is A LOT different than just being a teenager and having fun. Weren't you a teenager once? And were you a perfect one? I know I wasn't. I snuck out to parties that my parents said I couldn't go to, I smoked a little w**d, and I went to concerts. Big whoop. I was just being young and having fun with my friends.

    I haven't seen or read anything about them jumping from one man to the next and being "out there" in the sexual sense. This is what I'm referring to. Yes, they have a father figure but being a teenager and being a stripper sl*t are totally different .

  • Chuck

  • Ali26

    Someone mentioned Azealia bleaching her skin, but Azealia is still dark! She isn’t that much lighter than what she originally was! Like come on... You can tell she did it due to skin issues. She just looks even-toned now. To get rid of the dark spots in my face, me dermatologist suggested skin bleaching... not totally changing my skin tone, but fading out the dark spots for an even tone. Why would she not want to have the best skin she could have considering her career? I wouldn’t call what she did self-hate. Now... bleaching yourself from Lil’Kim’s dark color that she was to the hue she is now is what you call self-hate. BUT Azealia told no lies! Cardi is a ratchet bird without manners, but I still bump her catchy songs when I am in a Ratchet MOOD. I like that she isn’t afraid to be herself, but what she represents should not be mainstream. Period. She has enough money to invest in speech classes and level up, so I hope her team encourages her to do better. She needs to stop all that “Blood” talk, kill that diarrhea mouth, and twerking while pregnant..acting like a straight hood bop. Cardi is a role model whether she wants to be or not!

  • facingrealit1

    I'll bet your father wasn't on TV admonishing other fathers (like you were Ms. Perfect) about what they needed to be doing! My point was simple, kids are unique; people are unique - and having a two parent home doesn't guarantee successful parenting.

  • Roxie Moxie

    Lol...you do know what the word 'admonish' means, right?? I'm assuming you do since you've used it. So, I'm trying to figure out what my father not being on TV reprimanding someone else's father has to do with anything?? ? I also think your parantheses are misplaced, which is making it difficult to understand your point. However, the fact that you did place "like you were ms. Perfect" in them shows me you didn't really read my reply where I CLEARLY said I wasn't.

    In any event, you are right about one thing. Having a two parent home doesn't guarantee successful parenting. What it does provide (IF both the man and woman are on the same page) is a first-hand example of how a man treats a woman and how a woman treats man. When this STRONG example is placed in their minds, it is easier for them to dodge BS. They, at least have a foundation of some sort. Again, I wasn't perfect, but I knew that being promiscuous and looking for the the wrong kind of attention would end up bad for me. Unfortunately, the world is so f*cked up that people like Cardi can be glorified for "gettin her money" and "doing her" yet, she's instilling (unbeknownst to her) ignorant morals and values to those kids who never got the foundation so they fall for anything and everything.

    On the flip tho, both parents CAN be there but either parent can be detached emotionally and may result in the same way as if the parent weren't physically there.

  • facingrealit1

    I THANK YOU for responding as it shows how easily we can communicate the same narrative but deliver it differently. I used admonish to describe how I felt Obama communicated with the black community as president. He was on TV telling us how we needed to be better parents and men needed to be in the home etc. Thus saying, your father knew you were not perfect but people believed that the Obama girls were because their father was present. And they are no different (as you stated) than you or I in our youth. I miscommunicated that narrative, however you did grasp that a having 2 parents in the home does not make for a perfect child as Obama (father of the year) daughters are proving. Life is a choice and we all make them!

  • Roxie Moxie

    Ah, okay. Now I understand. Thanks for explaining that. I get what you're saying. We are all individuals but somehow having two parents might increase the chances of you providing that same environment for your own, which was why Obama was making this statement to OUR community because even though kids will be kids, fathers need to be there. It's lacking in our communities moreso and we see the results.

    I was raised in a two family home and because of seeing that growing up....mom and dad going to work.....watching mom and dad argue and problem solve....watching them clean on Saturdays mornings....cook breakfast....make dinner.....all types of sh*t. I now have this for my son. Because I saw it, I knew I wanted it for myself so when seeking a spouse I made sure he was on the same page as I was so that if we had children together we had the same values and morals in place.

  • facingrealit1
