A beef that we thought had simmered down has yet again erupted.
Nicki Minaj began to call out fellow New York rapper Cardi B on Monday’s episode of Queen radio via Beats 1. Bringing up the fight that occurred between the two during the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party during Fashion Week, Minaj says she could not bite her tongue any longer, though she previously refrained from speaking on the issue due to legalities.
Minaj says that the fight was caught on tape by her cameraman and that her friend, LHHNY’s Rah Ali, allegedly gave Cardi B a beat down.
“There’s no way I can lie about it because I guaran-fucking-tee that there’s surveillance footage in the building where the assault took place. I had my cameraman there,” she said.
“Rah [Ali] really really beat Cardi’s ass bad. Like really bad,” said Nicki. “You went home and told people that security hit you and we let that lie continue because of legal reasons. I told Rah don’t tell anyone you hit her because I don’t want nobody tryna sue me ’cause they all come to the person with money. I guess you had to look like a gangster in front of your friends, I get it. Rah beat you so bad that I was mad at Rah. The punches were so hard in your head that I was mad at Rah. Rah didn’t like her attitude, the way she came at me. I told Rah she didn’t put her hands on me, [but] Rah was like I couldn’t take that chance.”
Minaj also addressed Cardi B’s sister, Hennessy Carolina, who called the Queen rapper a crackhead following Cardi B’s phone number and address being leaked. Cardi B believed that the ‘barbz’ were behind it.
“And then you go and you got your sister calling me a crackhead, saying I leak numbers and—the fact that you would even discuss my looks are insane. Either of you. I’m a bad bitch. Always been a bad bitch. You can’t control your sister, but you want me to control millions of fans? I’ve never leaked a number in my life, on God.”
“Why are y’all so fucking obsessed with me? You’re always on [Instagram] Live talking about my fans, your sister is talking about me and my friends, leave us alone. What is your problem? Now I said it.
Let’s make our music and just be happy. What is going on? This is ridiculous. I don’t wanna put the footage out. I just want people to keep my name out their mouth. We can all make this stop.”
Lastly, Minaj brought up Cardi B allegedly asking her to be on her second single, “Bartier Cardi.”
“You asked me to be on your second single. And I said no because I felt like it’s too much ’cause ‘MotorSport’ was about to come out. Now you acting lovey dovey with them girls. Why you didn’t ask Remy and Kim to be on your single, baby girl?”
