Banks called Cardi a “poor man's Nicki Minaj" following her chart-topping win.

Cardi B has got her own back on Azealia Banks - by leaking a video of the '212' rapper dancing and miming to her chart-topping single 'Bodak Yellow'.

Banks previously hit out at the Bronx starlet after she scored her first-ever US number one, hailing her as a "poor man's Nicki Minaj" in a series of since-deleted tweets.

In light of Azealia's comments, however, Cardi shared a video appearing to show the rapper getting seriously hyped to the summer smash hit.

"One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1! Cuz even the HATERS love it!" Cardi captioned the clip.

The clip shows Banks sitting down in a club, wearing a red corset and waving her arms up in the air in appreciation for the song.,

In her original set of tweets, the controversial rapper said: "I’m sorry. Black industry men are too hype for this Latina girl I’ve never seen them jump like this for Remy or Nicki."

“Spinning this ‘for the culture’ story when they are simply letting white men at Atlantic buy them into hating their own women.”

Banks also said that Cardi B was "only black when black want to include themselves in a success story", adding: "I wanted spicy Latina and she gave me poor mans Nicki".

Azealia is yet to respond to the footage.

Meanwhile, Cardi took to Twitter to claim "every single female rapper" congratulated her on her chart win.
