NEW YORK, May 20 (UPI) -- Shortly after Azealia Banks was nominated for a BET Award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist on Monday, the singer went on a Twitter rant slamming the "bogus" award show for misspelling her name and complaining about her competition, Nicki Minaj's winning streak

The network, who posted the nominees online, wrote that the 23-year-old was "one of rap's most unfiltered MCs and "has made headlines via her Twitter." Little did BET know, it would shortly become the reason for her tweets that are being reported on.

Banks took to Twitter to share her frustrations about the nominations. First she tweeted, "@bet has thrown me such much shade over the years. Keep misspelling my name..." but it has since been deleted. "I really hate getting nominated for @bet awards. They're so bogus," she wrote.

The rapper continued by saying: "The female rap award at the bet awards goes to nicki every year, it's not even a real award anymore lol it's a bit of a running joke."

She continued to bash the "Super Bass" singer, who has dominated the category for the passed five years, saying, "They should just nominate nicki five times with five different wigs on and pick the best picture lol"

Banks didn't stop there. After receiving backlash from Minaj's fans, who call themselves "Barbz," the singer aggressively responded.
