Azealia Banks was one of the few artists not congratulating Cardi B on her achievement, in a series of now deleted tweets, Banks allegedly called the artist a "poor man's Nicki [Minaj]." 

"I'm sorry," Banks wrote. "Black industry men are too hype for this Latina girl I've never seen them jump like this for remy or nicki."

"Charlemagne and black men in hiphop should have gotten me, remy AND nicki a number one before they gave cardi or iggy one."

Banks went on to say that white men are trying to "buy black men away from black women," claiming Cardi is only considered as black when it's convenient for a success story. "I wanted spicy Latina and she gave me poor mans nick," the statement ended.
