It seems that Cardi B acknowledges Nicki Minaj’s contribution to the Music Industry.
At the 2018 New York Fashion Week party, Cardi and Nicki butted heads, quite literally. After the brawl, Cardi was seen leaving the party with a bump on her head.
Two years later, in an interview with Apple Music, Cardi grudgingly complimented a certain female rapper without saying her name. The Bodak Yellow rapper did not mention Nicki’s name.
Speaking to Nadeska Alexis, Cardi said one female rapper has dominated the industry for a long time.
“There was one female rapper that dominated for a very long time. And she did pretty good. She’s been still dominating.”
The rapper recalled her childhood when there weren’t many female rappers.
“When I was younger, when I was eight. No wait, I’m lying. When I was six, seven, eight, there was a lot different female rappers. And then there was a time that there was no female rappers at all.
I have to keep replaying songs from the early 2000s. I have to keep replaying it, replaying it, replaying it because for a while there wasn’t no female rapper.”
The Money rapper added that audience never know when there is going to be a drought in rap music. She said that it is impossible to predict when people get tired of female rappers.
“Or people just stop. I don’t know, promoting them. Cause I don’t know what happened in that, in a time period. But there at all for a hot minute.
So, you just never know the prediction. Maybe there will be a lot. Maybe there’s going to be a time that people just get tired of it.
And then there might be another rapper that just come and just take it over. You just never know; you know what I’m saying? We never know,” the 27-year-old concluded.
Cardi worked with Minaj on the Migos’ song Motorsport in 2017. The following year the fight between them broke out at The Plaza Hotel.`
A video did surface from the event. The duo was seen exchanging some words. Towards the end, Cardi B is seen hurling a shoe at Nicki Minaj.
Following the incident, both the rappers tried to pin the blame on each other. But after sometime, they have remained silent when it came about their opinions of each other.
