The ever-controversial Banks took to her social media channels this afternoon to fire various shots at Minaj after she shared a preview of the upcoming "Bed" video showing her dressed as a mermaid.
This then led Banks to fire off a now-deleted Instagram post of Minaj's mermaid photo with the caption: "Chicken of the sea sis. Stay in your own lane. @nickiminaj lol you running out of ideas girl."
We assume this is due to Banks also appearing as a mermaid on the illustrated cover to her 2012 mixtape Fantasea, and since obviously only one rapper can ever be depicted as a mermaid, she has accused Minaj of stealing the concept.
Banks then followed this up with a long string of anti-Minaj tweets, several of which you can find below.

Shit even cardi outshined her ass this year. The truth of the matter is that the nicki Minaj reign is up. I saved her from iggy but she didn't follow through on the plan to save her from cardi. Now cardi is going to eat her alive and there's nothing I can do. I'm done with her https://t.co/CdqkcSEMh7— CHEAPY XO (@cheapyxo) July 5, 2018

Minaj will drop her latest album Queen on August 10, and we can presumably expect its mermaid-friendly video for the record's "Bed" single soon.
