Azealia Banks Slams Cardi B, Compares Her To Iggy Azalea (Video)

According to Azealia, Cardi doesn't have the "fire."

Azealia Banks still isn't a fan of Cardi B.

In a new interview with TheBlackMedia, the "212" rapper came for Cardi, questioning her passion and comparing her to Iggy Azalea, Billboard reports.

"Don't get me wrong, I'm very entertained by Cardi B and I really like 'Bodak Yellow,' that's a really good song, but you are not that girl," she said. "It's just the truth, it's just the truth, you know what I'm saying?"

She continued, "I'm not trying to take anything from you, but you're just, like, you know, it's like this female rap thing is like, a lineage, it's a real fire that burns in a soul, you don't have that fire. I'm very happy for your success and I love your come up and I love like seeing you smile and having a good time, but this like, women's expression, this black women's expression . . . just the fire of the black women's expression, you don't have it, Cardi, and you won't get it, because it's not you."

She went on to compare Cardi to Iggy Azalea, accusing them both of "buying" their success.

"We've seen the movie before, it was called Iggy Azalea. I've seen exactly what you guys do. You buy a No. 1. You buy a Grammy. You know? It's all being paid for and I'm not at all trying to take anything away from you," she continued. "Sh*t, I'd f*cking love if someone paid for me to f*cking get an award. That's great, but I'm that girl. Nicki Minaj is that girl. Remy Ma is that girl. Cardi B is not that girl. Iggy Azalea is not that girl."

This isn't the first time Azealia has taken shots at Cardi; back in September, she called her a "poor man's Nicki." Cardi responded by posting a video of Azealia vibing to "Bodak Yellow" and writing in the caption, "One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!"
