The Nicki and Cardi beef got hella crazy…
So during the annual Harper’s Bazaar Icons party during New York Fashion week both top chart female rappers did not pull up ready to play.
Nicki, rockin designer from head to toe, was ready to shut it down … fashionably of course. While Cardi came through drippin’ and ready to pop off.
While we were waiting to see some of our favorites go all out, we were blindsided when a video went viral of Cardi B being restrained as she cursed out and lunged towards Nicki.
A lot of us were skeptical because the camera person was all over the place so there wasn’t full visual, but a pic of Cardi being escorted by security surfaced and let me tell you … that knot girl!
Allegedly the speed-knot on Cardi’s forehead came from a security officer that mistakenly elbowed her.
After the “fight” Cardi went on Instagram and said that she allowed Nicki to “diss” her and throw shade towards her “but when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are fuckin off!!”
On a episode of “Nicki Radio” with guest DJ Funk Flex, Minaj addressed the fight.
“The other night, I was a part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through,” she said. “The way they passed by looking at this disgusting commotion, I will never forget. I was mortified.”
Not only did Nicki explain what happened but she got real petty, playing audio of a video Cardi posted on Instagram during her stripper days saying she doesn’t “care who you are, I’ll come for you, your mom, your kid…”
Just like us, someone tweeted to Cardi asking “for the receipts” showing proof that Minaj did in fact talk down on her child, because if she did … we get it girl!
As a matter of fact in an October interview with W magazine, Cardi addressed the “fight” saying that Nicki liked and then unliked a tweet about Cardi’s mothering skills.
“I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter,” Cardi explained in the interview. “I love my daughter. I’m a good ass fucking mom. So for somebody that don’t have a child to like that comment? So many people want to say that party wasn’t the time or the place, but I’m not going to catch another artist in the grocery store or down the block.”
After some serious diggin’, The Press found the tweet and umm … we’ll just let ya decide whether it was that serious:
“The message she is sending as a mother to a baby girl by supporting a rapist is unsettling & uncomfortable to me.”
Apparently, that tweet was made after Cardi posted a pic supporting rapper Kodak Black.
While some may feel it’s really not that big a deal, let’s not forget Cardi recently turned herself in for an assault she organized at a Queens strip club so it’s no surprise that she’s no talk, all action when it comes to what’s hers.
Anywho, after Cardi’s Instagram post following the fight, trending on Twitter was #NickiStoppedMyBag, which originated from the post about Nicki that read “I let you attempt to stop my bags.”
Some of the hilarious tweets affiliated with the hashtag are:
“I went to the mall and this girl credit card declined, she responded with #NickiStoppedMyBag.”
“Tell me why I studied for my test and still got a 64 #NickiStoppedMyBag”
“My hair appointment just got rescheduled #NickiStoppedMyBag.”
Since then, Nicki created merchandise, including bags, t-shirts and jackets that read “Nicki Stopped My Bag.”
