Cardi B’s reported (but still unconfirmed) pregnancy with fiancé and Migos rap star Offset is the talk of the town with Coachella right around the corner, Cardi’s first major music fest performance of the year.
Harlem femcee Azealia Banks is joining the buzz as well, and with a message to Bartier Cardi that could either be one of two things: sarcastic or sincere.
Azealia took to her Instagram story to acknowledge the alleged pregnancy, hinting at a supposed truce.
“Wooooow sis,” she wrote, tagging Cardi on the Instagram story post. “Congrats on your pregnancy!! Now I can’t hate on you anymore because you’re someone’s mom!”
She penned the message with a “sincere congratulations,” which might still rub the Bardi Gang the wrong way when taking the Ice Princess’s previous sentiments on Cardi into consideration. Back in September, she gave Cardi and her fans a mouthful of shade, accusing the “Bodak Yellow” star of ghostwriting and dubbing her a “poor man’s Nicki Minaj.” This came after she scorned Charlamagne Tha God and other members of the media for rooting behind the Afro-Latina Bronx-native whom Azealia doesn’t consider an actual Black woman, but a “spicy Latina.”
The world may never know if the “212” artist will ever be ready to make amends with Cardi. But, if her message happens to come from a genuine place, it’s one foot in the right direction.
Decide whether Azealia’s shaming, shading or shouting out Bardi in the post below.
