On Sunday, Aug. 23, Azealia Banks went on a Twitter rant against black media and accused all black publications of shunning her from the spotlight.

According to Azealia, the only time she is highlighted and acknowledged in black media is when she is discussing another “white woman” such as fellow rapper Iggy Azalea. 

As you probably already know, Azealia and Iggy have had a longstanding feud for years, but the feud arguably reached its peak when Azealia told New York radio station Hot 97 that Azalea is appropriating black culture. 

“OK, so here's the thing with Iggy Azalea. I feel like, in this country, whenever it comes to our things like black issues or black politics or black music or whatever, there's always this like undercurrent of like 'f--k you' ... and that Iggy Azalea s--t is not better than any f-ckin' black girl that's rapping today. ... Iggy Azalea is not excellent,” Azealia told Hot 97 back in December. 

Fast forward to this week, Azealia mentioned an Ebony article she was mentioned in regarding her comments on Iggy Azalea. 

In a tweet that has since been deleted, Banks called out Ebony for only covering her in association with another white woman. 

She then went on to accuse black media of not being supportive of her work and damaging her brand. 

The following day, Banks continued her rant and this time called out BET and Hot 97 for ostracizing her as well. 

Neither Ebony, Hot 97, or BET has responded publicly to Banks’ recent comments.
