If there’s one thing Azealia Banks just doesn’t do it is hold her tongue. Despite dropping the critically acclaimed album Broke With Expensive Taste in 2014 and constantly finding herself in the middle of some of Twitter’s most epic arguments, the Harlem rapper has yet to be recognized by mainstream awards shows for her efforts.

When this year’s MTV Video Music Awards were announced, Banks took to Twitter to vent her frustration about being overlooked yet again. After tweeting a link that called one of her videos “one of the most underrated” of the year, Banks said she’d probably never garner a Grammy or VMA because she’s an outspoken Black woman.

Banks wasn’t the only one who had a few words for the folks over at MTV. Although she received three nominations, Nicki Minaj was miffed her Anaconda video—which has over 500 million views on Vevo—isn’t in the running for the network’s coveted Video of the Year award.

While Minaj failed to specify which “other” girls she was referring to, I think Banks’ tweet may just give us some clues.
