Budden and Charlamagne Tha God named Nicki on their “Trash List” for 2017 and Banks is certainly not happy about that. She has become the fast of championing female hip hop on social media and has become a staunched defender of Ms Minaj’s role in female rap. “Joe Budden talks the most sh*t about rappers yet the emotional trauma (and possible industry backlash) from being rejected by JAY-Z well over ten years ago is the reason why he’s actually not a part of any rap game or music community anywhere,” she wrote.
“But it SERIOUSLY makes me sick to my stomach to see @cthagod and Joe Burden get pleasure from tearing this black woman down because they are LEGIT LYING TO THEMSELVES,” she added in her lengthy post. “Every comparison they make is a FARCE…not cardio [Cardi B] nor remus [Remy Ma] are f***ing with nicki on her off day.”
Azealia Banks is certainly no fan of the rapper turn podcaster and now Charlamagne has joined that ranks as one of the most hated media personalities in rap. The two took turns in bashing Nicki Minaj while telling viewers that she had a trash year despite dropping a lot of new music. “I can’t remember the last time I saw a superstar of Nicki’s caliber put out three records at the same time, and by the way that ‘No Fraids’ record had the iHeartRadio stimulus package that you going to play every hour on the hour on every urban station throughout the country,” Charlamagne said while Joe Budden added, “Nicki Minaj is a superstar and you cannot have 90 followers and put out three records and none of them catch [on].”
Of course, Nicki Minaj wasn’t the only name on the Trash List for 2017, rap legend Eminem and newcomer Lil Yachty was also on the list along with Frank Ocean.
