Azealia expressed her discontent for Cardi’s lack of “couth,” and tied her thoughts on Cardi’s acceptance into a larger concern about the representation and dismissal of other Black women. The Ice Princess’ name stayed glued to the top of the internet’s trending topics of the day, so it’s a no-brainer that the social media-sensation-turned-breakout-rap star Cardi would eventually catch up to Azealia’s comments.
And after what everyone is deeming a response from Bartier Cardi to the Harlem femcee, their fan bases are going toe to toe after Azealia’s spicy clapback at her.
Why is it that male rappers can speak how they want act how they want but people constantly bash me for it ? Why do i feel like i have to apologize for being who i am ?talking how i talk and being what ya call “Ghetto “ wtff .LEAVE ME ALONE !— iamcardib (@iamcardib) May 11, 2018

Azealia at least has her talent, writing and rapping abilities to back her up.
Cardio only has ghostwriters and Migos rejects pic.twitter.com/Vq4Kc9Gcnv
