Azealia Banks is back at it, targeting another one of her peers. The latest is Cardi B.

Fresh off a historic milestone, when her single “Bodak Yellow” topped the Billboard 100 and in turn made her just the second solo female rapper to top the chart without a guest, Banks went on a lengthy Twitter tirade to criticize the achievement.

“I’m sorry. Black industry men are too hype for this Latina girl,” she tweeted. “I’ve never seen them jump like this for remy or nicki. Spinning this ‘for the culture’ story when they are simply letting white men at Atlantic buy them into hating their own women”

“Charlamagne [Tha God] and black men in hiphop should have gotten me, remy AND nicki a number one before they gave cardi or iggy one,” Banks continued. “But literally white guys buy black men away from black women and it’s soo cringe.”

Lastly, Banks went on to say that Cardi is “only black when blacks want to include themselves in a success story. I wanted spicy Latina and she gave me a poor mans nicki.””

Cardi B didn’t respond to Banks directly, but she did take to Twitter to brush off her haters.

“This is the happiest day of my life and no 1 will take this joy from me .I wish you sour patches a good day !Thats how happy I am,” she tweeted.

“Every single FEMALE RAPPER CONGRATULATED ME TODAY .Is the best feeling cause I listened to ALL OF THEM,” Cardi added.

Cardi B isn’t the first rapper that Banks has targeted. She’s previously beefed with everybody from Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim to Iggy Azalea and even T.I.
