Azealia Banks very vocally bashed Nick Cannon and his Wild’n Out crew after she visited the show for a live performance. Banks claimed that she was coerced into the rap battle, although she just went there to perform. “I show up and some guy who’s darker than me starts calling me ugly and being colorist,” stated Banks who also claimed the incident brought her to tears. Now, comedian DC Young Fly is claiming that it was him that pushed the rapper over the edge.
On DC, Karlous Miller, and Chico Bean’s The 85 South Show, the comic broke down how the incident took place. The story begins with DC playing a game called “So Petty” where he makes fun of Nick Cannon for being too cheap to book Cardi B, and getting Banks instead. “First of all, I didn’t know who she was,” DC stated. He also claimed that Banks said “something about me about three or four times” before he struck back. “So I finally grabbed the mic. She had braces on her teeth but she didn’t have the wire on the braces, so I said, ‘You need to fire your dentist with his stupid ass ’cause he took the wire and told you to keep the metal.’” He jokes about her braces continued, and DC claimed that is what finally brought Banks to tears. “She only had them on the bottom so I’m like what happened to the top motherfucker? That was it, and she just started crying.”
