Nicki Minaj, Cardi B Beef Surges With Viral Twitter Hashtag

Twitter users are blaming Nicki Minaj left and right for stopping their bag (aka keeping them from making money). But the viral hashtag #NickiStoppedMyBag isnt a dig at Minajits throwing shade at her fellow New York rapper Cardi B, and Nicki herself is egging it on.

The beef between the two rappers, of course, came to head in askirmishat New York Fashion Week earlier this month. After launching her shoe in Nickis direction at theHarpers Bazaarparty, Cardi left with a huge bruise. She followed up with an Instagram post directed at Nicki, accusing her of keeping her from opportunities.

I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags Youve threaten other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me youll stop fuckin with them!! Cardi wrote.

Nicki refuted the accusation on her showQueen Radio.

You knew that when that footage came out you would look dumb, Nicki said about the clip from the fight. I didnt even feel the need to defend myself that night She has built her career off of sympathy and payola.

But, as Complexreports, Nicki may have actuallykept Cardi from working with Future. Another hip-hop artist, Tiffany Foxx, said Nicki has kept her from being on red carpets in the past.

Meanwhile, Cardi is riding the high from the success of her collab with Maroon 5, Girl Like You, which just reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and made her thefirst female rapper with three No. 1 songs. Between fashion shows in Milan in Paris, Cardi took a subtle jab at Nicki.

Why cant yall just stop making rumors that trying to make me look like Im just over and everything? Cardi said in an Instagram live video. When my time is over, yall will see when my time is over. My numbers will be going down, Im not going to be on the charts, people will stop fucking with me. Youll see.

From there, Nicki fans stepped in on Tuesday with#NickiStoppedMyBag, belittling Cardis accusations against theQueenrapper.

Even Nicki herself joined in.
