Rapper Azealia Banks attacks Nicki Minaj, 2015 BET Awards on Twitter
The 23-year-old took to Twitter on Monday, May 18 to question the nominees for the awards.
“@bet has thrown me such much shade over the years. Keep misspelling my name…” Banks began. “I really hate getting nominated for @bet awards. They’re so bogus.”
Azealia goes head-to-head with Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Dej Loaf, Tink, and Trina and was heralded by the network as “one of rap’s most unfiltered MCs.’
“The female rap award at the bet awards goes to nicki every year, it’s not even a real award anymore lol it’s a bit of a running joke,” she continued, naming Minaj, with whom she has often butted heads. “They should just nominate nicki five times with five different wigs on and pick the best picture lol.”
Minaj, 32, has indeed controlled the BET Awards in recent years, taking home the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist honor in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010.
Banks went on to attack Minaj’s fans, tweeting, “*hears barbz buzzing in the distance* *rolls up car windows* *sound of little barb heads slamming into glass* *unconscious barbs on floor*… *turns up random nicki Minaj verse* *puts car in reverse* *backs up over barbs* *blood splatters* *puts car in drive and takes off*”
