Rapper and fashion vanguard Cardi B has had a huge summer. Her debut hit “Bodak Yellow” has almost 177 million views on YouTube, and she just broke a Billboard Hot 100 chart record by being the first female rapper in 19 years to hit No. 1 completely on her own.
A lot of rappers, both male and female, have reached out and publicly congratulated Cardi. But it’s not all congratulations and champagne showers. Out of whatever damp dark crevice she was hiding in has crawled the Haterus Loudmouthicus, better known as Azealia Banks, to ruin Cardi B’s picnic.
Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks used to hate each other more than spellcheck hates their names. But then Iggy decided she didn’t want to hate Azealia anymore, and Azealia agreed to stop hating on Iggy. Apparently things are so good between them, they’re working on a song together.
Azealia Banks has apparently put away the shank she waved in Iggy Azalea’s direction for years, and those two wrecks may have finally trashed their overcooked beef and made up. But as Azealia (temporarily) scratches Iggy’s name off of a list of enemies to cast a black magic spell on, Halsey has stood up and declared to the world that along with good taste and nice wigs, she wants nothing to do with Iggy Azalea.
Last week, a bench warrant was issued for Azealia Banks after she skipped out on a court appearance. Azealia was MIA for a hearing regarding her 2015 boob-biting incident because she was in Paris for Fashion Week. Part of me expected Azealia to cook up some kind of scheme to avoid an arrest, like faking her own death to throw off the police and laying low in an small French village under the assumed name Azealia de la Baguette. To my surprise, Azealia returned to New York and made good on her lawyer’s promise to take care of her latest legal mess.
We all know Azealia Banks has the ability to make a situation extremely messy, but apparently she can also cause heaps of trouble from thousands of miles away too. Apparently her witchcraft skills include remote viewing powers. Case in point, Azealia missing a court appearance because she was at a fashion show in Paris.
Former rapper turned professional troll Azealia Banks conjured up another ten dozen headlines with her name in ’em over the weekend when she went after another one of the popular kids. You gotta do what you gotta do to be relevant and Azealia did that by starting a fight with Rihanna. It led to the both of them leaking each other’s phone numbers.
