Cardi B is ready to take things to a whole new level in her feud with Nicki Minaj. Is she levelling up from throwing a shoe at her nemesis to jumping her in a club? No, at least not yet. Cardi B is now coming for the people who keep Nicki Minaj living in Chanel bags and #2 albums: her fans.
E! News is reporting that Cardi B is pessed. Why is she so enraged she could throw a shoe? This time it’s because of a song leak. Cardi’s newest track “Money“ was supposed to be released this Thursday. However, Cardi’s plans changed when the song found its way onto the Internet on Tuesday. Cardi then took to Instagram Live where she broke down her day and what happened with the track leaking. First she points her 4-inch-nailed finger at unknown music office workers who nefariously leak music for the shits and giggles, and then she brought her hammer of judgment (or in Cardi’s case, I suppose shoe of judgment is better) down on the true culprit: Nicki’s fan club, The Barbz.
“My song Money got leaked… I think it got leaked because, you know, sometimes when you send your records early to these streaming or these music platforms, someone from they building leak it and everything and then we try to retract it but you know the Barbz… They always posting me, they always post everything I do… They claim they hate me, but they really love me, because they be on my page before my fans. So clearly, that seems like love to me, seems like you love me, so it’s like, ‘Fuck it.’ I can’t retract it, I might as well put it out.”
Cardi said she is “sick and tired” of the Barbz, saying that they’re “always on my fucking page. Always doing the most, always on my nuts.” Why do I feel like Cardi B has huge nuts? Probably diamond encrusted and everything.
While on IG Live, Cardi also teased more upcoming music for the Barbz to leak early, saying she has a project with five to six new songs including two features which she plans on releasing. Maybe don’t tell them you’re releasing it so you can keep the upper hand? The element of surprise? Like when you surprised everyone at the Harper’s Bazaar party by suddenly throwing your shoe? No announcement necessary.
At the beginning of this video is the part where Cardi throws spears at The Barbz, if you want to see that:
As for Nicki’s next move, the internet is pretty sure that her newest verse on Future‘s song “Transformer” is all about Cardi B. She raps:
“Some call me Nicki but some call me Megatron. I’m stopping bags and I don’t need a red octagon.”
Okay so, congratulations to Nicki Minaj for finding a rhyme to the word “octagon”, congrats girl, that’s something special. I love that you’re still on this “Nicki stopped my bag” nonsense, especially since Cardi B is wealthy AF. But I think these ladies need to realize they have more in common than they realize.
Nicki gets a #2 album and goes off on her Queen Radio show to complain. Cardi’s song get’s leaked and she goes on Instagram Live to complain. Why don’t you realize that you guys have something in common? …Underperforming music releases.
