Cardi B and Nicki Minaj have been rumored to be beefing with each other for months now especially since the success of her single “Bodak Yellow.” In recent weeks both artists have made steps to calm down the rumors but that isn’t stopping the question from being thrown at them.
The former Love and Hip Hop New York star did an interview with Spanish outfit Rapeton where she was asked about her comparison to the Young Money emcee. “It’s something great, why wouldn’t I want to be compared of confused to somebody that is such a legend, you know like an icon in the hip hop world,” Cardi B said. Just last week Nicki Minaj reacted to more rumors of her beef with Cardi in a tweet saying, ““I see no lies when Bardi quotes Barbie #WinAgain ~ all dat reaching you gon f*** around & pull a muscle…#BarbieTingz.”
That reaction on Twitter came moments after Cardi went on a rant on stage one of her performances calling out a particular female for not liking her before her blow up and all of a sudden want to be her friend. Some folks like Joe Budden thinks that she was talking about Nicki, but we still have no idea who she was referring to since she never called any names. Cardi B also said that she is open to a collaboration with Nicki Minaj, but only time will tell if that will happen.
Both ladies are the two leading female rappers in the game right now and just last week Cardi B became the highest charting female rapper on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since 2014 when her single “Bodak Yellow” climb to number 8 on the chart. The single is now at number 3, jumping five places this week. Do you think that Nicki Minaj is a legend and an icon in hip hop? Sound off in comments below.
