Azealia Banks has never bit her tongue, and the controversial rapper has added Joe Budden and Charlamagne Tha God to her shit list after they criticized Nicki Minaj in a new REVOLT TV special.

In their This Year Was Dope / Trash year-end special with REVOLT TV, Budden and Charlamagne called Nicki Minaj "trash" for her musical output, social media behavior, and her handling of the beef with Remy Ma. Azealia Banks called out both of them in her Instagram story, taking some shots at Budden while expressing her upset.

"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. Every comparison they make is a farce," Banks wrote, before referring to Cardi B and Remy Ma. "Not cardio nor remus are fucking with nicki on her off day."

Banks had her own insults toward Nicki Minaj in December 2016, but she later reached out to Nicki personally to apologize for what she said. Nicki responded, accepting her apology, and Banks posted the exchange on Instagram.
