Cardi B is about to release a Nicki Minaj diss track that's so savage her team want to cut some of the lyrics
Cardi B and Nicki Minaj's fight has been a vicious war of shoe-throwing, social media shade and interview insults so far. But what we wanna know is this: what about diss tracks?
After all, the pair are both musicians, so a song in which one of them slams the other is bound to come sometime, right?
We may not be waiting much longer, it seems though, because, rumour has it, Cardi B has been working on a tune with lyrics so savage, her team wants some of them cut out.
According to TMZ, the I Like It rapper has recorded new songs that take some "serious jabs" at her arch nemesis. However, she is currently locked in a private battle with her music team over whether or not they should be released to the public.
According to the celebrity gossip site, the 26-year-old wants to "keep it real" about her ongoing feud with the fellow artist, and include her real-life drama on her upcoming studio album, yet her team remains "divided".
"Cardi's team believes she's already eclipsed Nicki, and the best strategy is just ignoring her," writes TMZ, adding that the team suspects the lyrics would actually benefit the Barbie Dreams rapper by putting the spotlight back on her.
The pair have been at each other's throats since the Cardi reportedly approached Nicki's table at a New York Fashion Week party to talk about "the lies [Nicki] was spreading" back in August.
Cardi allegedly hurled a shoe in Nicki's direction and left the party barefoot, showing off a large bump on her head.
Speaking to W Magazine earlier in October, Cardi explained her reasoning behind the feud, saying Nicki had gone a step too far when she allegedly disparaged her parenting skills.
"For a while now she’s been taking a lot of shots at me," she said. "I spoke to her twice before, and we came to an understanding. But she kept it going. I was going to make millions off my Bruno Mars tour, and I sacrificed that to stay with my daughter. I love my daughter. I'm a good-ass f**king mom. So for somebody that don't have a child to like that comment?"
She continued: "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."
On her part, Nicki admitted she was "humiliated" by the shoe-throwing incident on Beats 1 on Apple Music, claiming she would "never discuss anyone's child".
"I was mortified ... I could not believe how humiliated I felt .... how we - and I use the term 'we' loosely - made ourselves look," she said. "I would never discuss anyone's child. It's so sad for someone to pin that on me. I would never talk about anyone's child's or parenting, I don't give a s**t. It's so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy. if you're right in whatever you're doing, you don't ever have to make someone into the bad guy."
So, will Cardi's diss track see the light of day? Watch this space - things could start to get even uglier...
