Cardi B & Azealia Banks feud has gone nuclear! Cardi B has now locked her twitter account and deleted or deactivated her Instagram which is the very thing that put her on. It is no secret that Cardi B and Azealia Banks are not friends, as they bumped heads after Azealia made now deleted tweets calling her being a “poor man’s Nicki” back in 2017. Cardi then responded by dropping a video of Azealia dancing to ‘Bodak Yellow’ in the club. This time Azealia might have finally collected Cardi and added her to her RapFinity Gauntlet.
Azealia made her way to ‘The Breakfast Club’ and sat down with Charlamagne and DJ Envy and talked about new music, RZA and dealing with sexual assault. It didn’t take long into the interview before DJ Envy asked about her calling Cardi B an “illiterate rat”. Charlagmagne said he wasn’t going to even bring it up but DJ Envy claims he wanted to know after looking at the screen. Azelia gave her thoughts on how she felt that Cardi was a caricature of black women and is an “illiterate untalented rapper”.
“Two years ago, the conversation surrounding black women’s culture was really reaching an all-time high.“There was just this really, really, really intelligent conversation going on nationally and then everything just kind of changed and then it was like Cardi B.”
Azelia doesn’t believe that black women would be able to get away with half of the things that Cardi has gotten away with. She continued with comparing if Nicki Minaj were to misspell words like she would get clowned. Someone brought up that Fantasia already experienced that.
“I’m just talking about this caricature of a black woman that black women themselves would never be able to get away with. Like, if my spelling and grammar was that bad, I’d be canceled. If Nicki Minaj spelled like that, we would be ragging on her all day.”
Y'all sat and used Fantasia's illiteracy against her for YEARS. You still do. And now folks antagonize Cardi because she is not as "articulate" as others.
Y'all attempt to have every type of analysis except for a class one. It's disturbing.

Well, Cardi had time and she responded.
Now Azealia has more time than Cardi and is interested in the spotlight being on her even if it’s not about her music but yet again her getting into it with another artist.
So because I point out that you get away with being the typical caricature of a black woman that society says is wrong … and you respond by calling me unattractive and bringing up skin bleaching to basically make fun of me for not being light skinned?”
Now Azealia you Disney’s Skai Jackson and lost.
Unlike Cardi B Azealia has way more time than other artist and sent out multiple tweets directed towards Cardi.
Some aren’t feeling Azealia cry pro-blackness considering the things she has said recently.
Azealia banks is currently the champion for black women, because it's convenient for her and chicks that have a prob with cardi. But tomorrow or in a few days, she's going to go right back to bleaching her skin, calling lil black girls whores, and spewing anti black male rhetoric

Cardi B Instagram account is no longer visible and her Twitter account is locked. Leaving many wondering why?
Here is my opinion. She should ignore Azealia banks. She has nothing to lose and Cardi has everything to gain. The optics don’t look good that Cardi left social media and locked her accounts up. It looks as if she is defeated even though we know Cardi B is popping right now.
Did we lose Cardi B in the social media Soul Gem or did she just say to hell with it?
Rolling Ray Undergoes Surgery After Wig Catches On Fire
Social media star Rolling Ray underwent surgery Tuesday morning to treat serious burns on his body after his terrible wig accident last week.
In a series of IG stories, he let his audience follow along as he prepped for surgery.
Last week Rolling Ray announced he was hospitalized after his wig caught on fire! During a January 13 Instagram Live session hosted straight from his hospital bedside, he showed his severely burnt and damaged face telling viewers his “whole skin, legs, arms, feet, and everything” were burned.
In a more recent Live, Ray explained the incident that led to his whole wig catching on fire: an unfortunate smoking accident. “It just, like, lit on fire when I tried to light the cigarette,” he recounted. “So I get to trying to snatch the wig off. B***h, the fire goes to my f*****g shirt, to my feet, to my legs, to my back. It’s a fire everywhere, it’s a fire in the whole room.”
Of course the internet trolled him in a disgusting display of ableism and heartlessness. Comments like “Rolling Ray should have stopped, dropped, and rolled” and “karma’s a b***h” had social media conflicted in its feelings about his accident. His sensation comes from his harsh and, often, below-the-belt reads (just last month he told Yung Miami to “dig (sic) up” her dead baby father. However, the criticism didn’t stop him from responding on Twitter.
Rolling Ray might be problematic as all get-out, but we do not tolerate ableism here. We wish him well as he heals.
Fantasia Reveals Gender of Baby On the Way!
On Tuesday singer-songwriter and “American Idol” winner Fantasia Barrino took to social media to reveal that she is having a baby girl, her first child with husband Kendall Taylor.
In a series of Instagram stories, Fantasia showed pink fireworks being shot off during a gender reveal party, to her and her hubby’s excitement! She continued by sharing what her daughter-to-be’s name will be: Keziah London Taylor.
The news comes after the couple revealed they had struggled to conceive since their 2015 marriage. During a November episode of her IG Live show “Taylor Talks,” she described continuously praying for a child with her husband. Fantasia, a deeply devout Christian, was obviously elated when she shared the news.
“God I Want To Thank You!” she said in an Instagram caption. “You Gave Us A Seed even when the Doctor said that one of my Tubes [was] Closed you said Different. @salute1st I Love You King and I can’t wait to see who He or She acts Like.”
We can see Fantasia and family are all super excited to be welcoming a baby girl into their lives. All congratulations to her.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Getting Divorced, Report Says
In a story published Tuesday evening, Page Six is reporting that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting divorced, with the two already in settlement talks. The news comes after the couple spent the holiday season separately – Kanye at his ranch outside Cody, Wyoming, Kim and the kids with her famous family in southern California.
A source close to Kardashian was quoted saying, “Kim got Kanye to go up there so they could live separate lives and quietly get things sorted out to separate and divorce. She’s done.” Kardashian, 40, and West, 43, are said to be splitting because of marital problems directly related to Kanye’s very public mental health struggles.
For several years the rapper’s various antics have caused fans to worry. After coming out as a Trump supporter, West then announced his own 2020 presidential bid under a new political party: the Birthday Party. At a campaign rally in South Carolina, he was seen rambling, debating individual audience members, and at times, crying. In various interviews, he has rambled on almost incoherently, and his tweetstorms are now infamous.
For her part, Kim has always supported her husband and has openly discussed the difficulties of their marriage. Back in June, she shared on social media, “Anyone who has [bipolar disorder] or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand… People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual (has) to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”
It appears she has finally reached her limit in the union with the unnamed source saying, “She is serious about taking the bar exam and becoming a lawyer, she is serious about her prison reform campaign. Meanwhile Kanye is talking about running for president and saying other crazy s**t, and she’s just had enough of it.”
Separately, a source close to Kanye alleges the rapper is sick of his wife and her family, which might have some truth to it since he has tweeted some pretty nasty things about them in the past. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with Meek at the Warldolf [sic] for ‘prison reform,’” he said in a now-deleted July tweet. Recently, he hasn’t been featured on his wife’s Instagram and has largely remained out of the public eye.
With the news yet to be confirmed, the “divorce is imminent” reports are just rumors for now. We’ll be following the news as more information comes out.
