Nicki Minaj Finally Addresses The Rumored Beef She Has With Cardi B

Cardi B seems to be taking over the industry one song/feature at a time. The female rapper, who recently dropped her album “Invasion of Privacy,” has become a household name overnight.
But, Cardi isn’t the first female rapper to do it big. Of course, there are those who have come before her–Lil’ Kim, Remy Ma, Nicki Minaj…just to name a few. Recently, Nicki Minaj dropped two new songs and did some press to promote her music. There have been rumors floating around that Minaj and Cardi have some serious beef. While it’s always been unclear if they truly had problems with each other, fans seemed to love the fact that two female rappers would battle it out–rather than support each other.

Minaj appeared on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Show on Thursday and was asked about Cardi–obviously–in the interview. Both rappers appeared as features on Migos’ song “Motorsport,” which would make it seem like all is well, but, apparently, Minaj was really hurt over Cardi’s words about her. According to Minaj, the song was supposed to be a collaboration between just her and Quavo–a member of Migos. But, Offset, another member of Migos, is engaged to Cardi B. Apparently, Quavo sent Minaj a text asking if it was “cool if Cardi could also have a verse on the song.” Minaj–of course–said yes, I mean, it would be awesome to see two of the biggest female rappers collab like that. But, Migos and Cardi told a different story.

“The only thing with Cardi that really, really, really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after ‘MotorSport’ came out. With ‘MotorSport,’ I kinda felt ambushed. The first thing that came out of her mouth about a Nicki Minaj feature was ‘she changed the verse’ … When it was time to clear the air about that, no one did that. All of them allowed me to look like I lied.”

Minaj and Cardi were both featured in the “Motorsport” music video but didn’t film together because they both used the same hairstylist who styled them while each other was filming.

“I said to him, ‘You know if I don’t show up, they’re gonna think it’s because I’m doing it to be mean’ … They [Migos and Cardi] all knew that and still did interviews and jumped around it just to paint Nicki as the bad person so you could play the victim. That really, really, really hurt me because I really supported her.”

Minaj said she was also hurt that Cardi had never shown her any love at all in interviews. There are not many female rappers in the game that do it big, it would be nice to see them support each other. Minaj got so worked up, she started crying.

Up until this recent interview that she did, I had never seen her show me genuine love. I could just imagine how many girls wish they could have been on a song with Nicki Minaj. I’m not saying in it a cocky way, but yikes … It’s because of the Nicki hate train that she felt like she could speak about me in that manner.

Fans on Twitter has some serious opinions about the drama and the interview. Mostly, fans think that everyone should support both Nicki and Cardi–seeing as the industry is so saturated with male rappers, it’s time we support all female rappers.

Others said that fans are trying to make beef out of nowhere.

And, then, others took sides.
