Earlier this week, Azealia Banks blasted Cardi B's 'Bodak Yellow' going No. 1 and called her a 'poor man's Nicki Minaj.  Now Cardi has responded by sharing an old video on Instagram.

The clip shows Azealia rapping passionately to the hit song, despite later dissing it and saying that black men in the music industry made Cardi go No. 1 because they prefer white and Latina female artists.

One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!

Additionally, the Broke with Expensive Taste rapper also sat down with XXL a while back and praised Cardi, so her recent diss is a complete contradiction.

“You should have had Cardi B on the freshman list,” said Azealia back in July. “I really, really like Cardi B. I followed Cardi B on Instagram before she started rapping and I was like, 'Oh my God, this girl just reminds me of all the girls I went to middle school with, all the girls I grew up on the block with, all the Dominican babysitters.' I grew up with girls just like Cardi B. So I always thought she was funny, and when she started rapping, I was like, 'What is she doing?' Then I heard 'Foreva' and I was like, 'Okay, this is really fucking good, she’s not playing.' Then I heard a couple other songs and I was like, 'Oh shit, Cardi’s not playing.' And now I’m a fan of Cardi B’s music and her personality.”
How do you explain Azealia's sudden turnaround?

Update: Azealia Banks is now accusing Cardi B of using a ghostwriter and exchanging sex for raps.
