Azealia Banks finally broke her silence on ongoing rap feud between Meghan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj.
Taking to her Instagram story on Thursday, the 212 rapper shared her two cents on the matter, she even dragged Jay-Z in the Nicki – Meghan fiasco, who recently dissed each other with their respective tracks Big Foot and Hiss.
“Originally I was just going to stay out of this because it’s another day, another rap beef — who really cares? But I think there’s some interesting parts to this that everyone’s missing. This isn’t about Meg [collaborating] with Cardi,” Banks wrote in her post.
She continued, “This is about Jay-Z. … Jay-Z has this way of presenting himself in the culture as a Daddy Warbucks type of figure.”
Azealia also explained how the female rappers seek validation and guidance from Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z, because they do not have a father figure to look up to.
“When you really dig down deep into it, Nicki be sweating Jay in a different type of way,” she noted.
“Low-key, she be on his ***. I’m really good at reading body language and I could see in the ‘Feeling Myself’ video, Beyoncé’s kinda like laughing at her,” added the Luxury songstress.
“Jay-Z has kinda positioned himself in this way where almost every type of female urban artist feels she needs his approval of sorts,” wrote Azealia.
She further added, “I could just low-key feel she’s felt slighted by Jay. Just by his association with Meek Mill. But at the same time, Nicki wants to wiggle her way in bad. That’s what this beef is about. She wants to be a Roc Nation girl so f—ing bad.”
She continued: “It’s been years since Jay-Z publicly co-signed any female rapper, and the fact that it’s Megan — it could be anyone — the fact some female rapper that’s not Nicki got Jay-Z’s public co-sign makes Nicki jealous. … And I’m really not trying to diss Meg. She’s not a typical Roc Nation girl. She’s still ham hocks and hushpuppies.”
Azealia Banks did not hold back from taking a dig at Nicki’s financial status and butt implants, as she wrote, “It’s pretty clear that Nicki’s f—ed. That she’s f—ed financially.”
She also claimed. “I realized it when she was frying the can of cream corn in the Teflon pan.” I was just like, ‘What in the welfare is happening right now?’ … You can tell by whatever keeps happening with Nicki’s butt that she’s f—ed right now.”
