Azealia Banks Claims Nicki Minaj Desperately Seeks Cardi B’s Friendship
Azealia Banks Sparks Controversy with Instagram Critique of Nicki Minaj’s Personal and Professional Life
Harlem-based rapper Azealia Banks caused a stir on Instagram last Sunday (July 23) as she openly critiqued Nicki Minaj’s personal and professional life. Holding nothing back, Banks took aim at Minaj’s complicated relationship with Cardi B and questioned the quality of her musical collaborations.
The heated commentary began with Banks delving into the long-standing rivalry between Minaj and Cardi B. She remarked, “[You] can’t be crying for Cardi B’s friendship.” Banks attributed Cardi B’s success over Minaj not to superior talent, but rather to her charisma, stating, “She’s beating you not because she’s better – but because she’s FUN and FUNNY.”

Banks went even further, suggesting that Minaj secretly admires Cardi B. She wrote, “You cried because Cardi wouldn’t be [your] friend. We know you like her as much as we do. It’s okay to appreciate what she brings to the table.”
The critique didn’t stop there, as Banks also directed harsh words towards Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty. She expressed concern, saying, “No man who loves you is going to let you sit around on Instagram Live and scream misinformed obscenities at the top of your lungs while his kid is in the other room.” Banks strongly urged Minaj to realize that Petty might be detrimental to her well-being and even suggested that she consider divorce.
Known for her outspoken remarks, Banks has faced backlash in the past, including comments made about DC Young Fly and his late girlfriend, Ms. Jacky Oh, which were deemed deeply insensitive.
In contrast, Nicki Minaj has been celebrating the success of her collaboration with Ice Spice, titled “Barbie World.” Spice emotionally recounted her first meeting with Minaj during an interview with Zane Lowe, expressing her admiration for the seasoned rapper’s journey.
As the online feud continues to make headlines, fans and critics are keeping a close eye on the situation to see how it unfolds.
