Azealia Banks Accuses Cardi B of Copying Her Drip: “You Make Everything Look So Cheap and Dirty”
On Sunday (Aug. 25), Banks hopped on her Instagram account and accused Cardi B of copying her style with an outfit the rapper wore on the red carpet at the Hollywood premiere of her latest movie Hustlers on Sunday. For her fit, Cardi donned a skin-tight 1995 vintage Jean Paul Gaultier optical illusion dress with Fenty sunglasses.
In her IG post, Banks shared a dated video of herself wearing a similar Jean Paul Gaultier optical illusion outfit with leopard-printed boots that she wore at a club. "Lol sis you make everything look so cheap and dirty," Banks wrote in the caption along with the hashtags #jeanpaulgaultier and #thirstbucket.
"Lol funnily enough, I’ve found at least six Atlantic records employees following me and am sure her team scours my account for inspiration," she continued. "Lmfao... tell Craig Kallman [CEO of Atlantic Records] to call me. Lose the chicken dinner and get with the winner."
Cardi B has yet to respond to Banks' claims of biting her style. The two artists have a long-standing feud with each other. Last May, Banks called Cardi a caricature of a Black woman in an angry rant on her IG page. In response, Cardi wrote back, "A woman who constantly finds joy in belittling Black women (Beyonce, Rihanna, Skia Jackson, Remy Ma) can't try to stand for them because it's convenient."
