AceShowbiz - Not everyone is happy for Cardi B after her summer hit "Bodak Yellow" nabbed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. While some hip-hop artists like Nicki Minaj and Missy Elliott have congratulated Cardi on her feat, Azealia Banks ranted against the Bronx femcee on Twitter.
Azealia tweeted "anonymously" from the Twitter account @XoCheapy which she's been using lately. "I'm sorry. Black industry men are too hype for this Latina girl I've never seen them jump like this for remy or nicki," she wrote. "Spinning this 'for the culture' story when they are simply letting white men at Atlantic buy them into hating their own women."
When someone pointed out that Cardi is black, Azealia responded, "She's only black when black want to include themselves in a success story. I wanted spicy Latina and she gave me poor mans nicki."
She also called out Power 105. 1 Breakfast Club host Charlamagne tha God for supporting "Bodak Yellow", but not giving other female MCs such as Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj the same support. "Charlemagne and black men in hiphop should have gotten me, remy AND nicki a number one before they gave cardi or iggy one," she wrote. "But literally white guys buy black men away from black women and it's soo cringe."
The tweets have since been deleted. Cardi has taken to Instagram to respond to Azealia's Twitter rant. Instead of hitting back at the "Chasing Time" raptress, Cardi posted a video of Azealia dancing to "Bodak Yellow" at what looks like a party. "One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!" she captioned it.
The 24-year-old star has received congratulatory messages from the likes of Nicki Minaj, Missy Elliot, Lauryn Hill, Queen Latifah, Remy Ma and Migos for her success. "Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement. Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it," Nicki posted on Twitter.
"Congratulations @iamcardib for having a #1 record in the country that's not as easy as it seem this huge May u have continued blessings," Missy also tweeted.

Meanwhile, Taylor Swift whose song "Look What You Made Me Do" had topped the chart for three weeks before it was knocked down to No. 3 has sent Cardi a bouquet of pink flowers to congratulate the raptress on the feat. "Sooo beautiful and lovely .Thank you @taylorswift for the flowers ....and I freaking love your music," Cardi said in a caption of the video showing the flowers.
"Bodak Yellow" is the only second song by an unaccompanied female rapper to ever top the chart after Lauryn Hill did so in 1998 with "Doo Wop (That Thing)". She's also the first female rapper of color to appear on a No. 1 hit since Lil' Kim collaborated with Pink, Mya and Christina Aguilera for 2001's "Lady Marmalade".
