Nicki Minaj has finally responded to the long-standing rumor that she and "Bodak Yellow" rapper Cardi B have an ongoing feud.
The rumors began back in October when the two female rappers guest starred in Migos's "Motorsport," a chart-topping track from their album Culture II. Since then, fans have waged a war between themselves, arguing which of the rappers was better.
Then, earlier this week, Cardi B extinguished the drama by clarifying in an interview that there was no beef between her and Minaj. She said that fans made up the feud for fun, but there was no real issue between her and the "Anaconda" rapper.
Apparently, there is.
How Cardi B Hurt Nicki Minaj's Feelings
In a conversation with Zane Lowe of Beats 1, Minaj admitted that she harbors negative feelings for Cardi B. While there was no real feuding, she said that she felt betrayed when the "Be Careful" rapper made a passing comment about her and her involvement in "Motorsport" back in November.
"The only thing with Cardi that really really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after 'Motorsport' came out," the Grammy-nominated star told Lowe. "The first interview she did after 'Motorsport' came out, it just really hurt me. She looked so aggravated and angry and the only thing she said was, 'Oh, I didn't hear that. I didn't hear that verse.' I was like what?"
The interview that Minaj was referring to came from Capital Xtra, a radio show in the United Kingdom, where Cardi B talked about the rumored feud and "Motorsport." The rap newcomer told the host that when Migos member Quavo invited her to guest star in the track, the verse was not finished yet.
Minaj continued and recalled a conversation she had with Quavo who refused to defend her against the haters who were accusing her of lying on Twitter.
"It hurt my feelings to know that people would watch me be slaughtered and not one person will step in to say the truth," the "Super Bass" rapper said. "They will run with the lie, they'll allow people to run with the lie because it's entertaining to make Nicki seem like the bad guy."
Following the interview, Minaj once again explained what happened behind-the-scenes of "Motorsport." She explained to fans that Quavo and the Atlantic told her to modify her verse for the track.
How can you say someone changed their verse & forget to say Quavo TOLD me to remove my singing part (which I loved) & Atlantic told me to remove your name from my verse per your request? So how were those changes gonna happen if I didn’t “change” my verse? #NickiDay #ChunLi — NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) April 12, 2018
Mom-to-be Cardi B has not responded as of this writing.
The interview comes shortly after "Motorsport" was awarded a 3x Platinum certificate from the RIAA.
On Thursday, April 12, Minaj released "Chun-Li" and "Barbie Tingz," her first solo tracks since 2017. The rapper is reportedly working on a new album, her follow-up to 2014's The Pink.
