Nicki Minaj Coming for Cardi B

Cardi B took over the female rap game last year with “Bodak Yellow” and Nicki Minaj is pissed. If you heard the song “Motorsport” featuring both ladies, you’ll know that they definitely tried to out-do each other with their respective verses. Cardi won.

According to a source who spoke to Page Six, Nicki is ready to take the spotlight back.

“Cardi B took over the scene and has been breaking all these records. Anyone in their right mind would be like, ‘I better step my game up.’ She wants to be on top. It’s friendly competition. It’s not a Remy Ma situation, but, Nicki definitely pays attention.”

Another source says, “Nicki is focussed on Nicki.”

So, which is it? Probably a bit of both. Any rapper who was on top would be jealous of another rapper who stole their spot. It’s a bit more cutthroat in the female rap game because there are so few female rappers.

Nicki hasn’t released an album since 2014 Pinkprint. She did have a feud with Remy Ma last year, and lost on wax, but won commercially. It can’t come as a huge surprise that another female rapper would emerge in the four years since Minaj’s last album.

Hopefully Cardi’s run to the top of the charts has inspired Nicki to make good music again. Because Pinkprint sucked.

Nicki has reportedly been in Miami working in the studio with Lil Wayne and Drake. That doesn’t exactly give me a ton of confidence about this new album because Lil Wayne hasn’t lost many steps over the years and Drake is. Well. He’s Drake.

That said, nothing Nicki does will flop more than “Swish Swish” so she at least has that going for her.
