If you're a fan of ornate and complex historical feuds in history, then this story will be one for you, as the conflict between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B dwarfs whatever the heck was going on between any figure in a Shakespearean drama, at least in complexity. The feud between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj began in rumor, and while Cardi B said it was just that, Nicki Minaj clarified that it had some legs, and discussed why the two rappers did not appear together in the video for Migos' "MotorSport". Here to discuss Minaj's response are our hosts Ryan Mitchell, Shira Lazar, and our special guests -- cartoonists, actors and writers Daniel and Jeremy Lehrer, also known as The Lehrer Boys, whose show "Highly Gifted", can be viewed on Snapchat.
So what IS up with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B! Well it turns out MotorSpot was the reason for the feud, with Nicki Minaj explaining - "The only thing with Cardi that really, really, really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after ‘MotorSport’ came out. With ‘MotorSport,’ I kinda felt ambushed. The first thing that came out of her mouth about a Nicki Minaj feature was ‘she changed the verse’ … When it was time to clear the air about that, no one did that. All of them allowed me to look like I lied.” Gotcha! And the reason they didn't appear together in the video? Well, apparently it's because they had the same hair dresser and the hair dresser had to take care of them individually.
So there is a feud, albeit one that's slowly creeping onwards. After all, Nicki Minaj DID step on Cardi B's album release window with a few singles of her own.
