Friday morning, the Migos fucked the world up—in a good way—and dropped "MotorSport" with both the hottest in the streets, Cardi B, and the legend Nicki Minaj. It's a blessing we never knew was possible, seeing as Nicki and Cardi have been pitted against each other ever since Cardi started making noise. Despite the fact that they have both said they have no beef with each other (albeit a little awkwardly), the gatekeepers in hip-hop and those on the outside insist on creating a fake rivalry.
And that's exactly what happened after "MotorSport" hit the web:
Now can y'all stop comparing cardi to nicki ? Because it's obvious which female mc had the better verse #MotorSport pic.twitter.com/mS53lShKbB— Lil Coochie Squirt😈 (@Truebeautyniya) October 27, 2017

Cardi & Nicki sending shots @ each other on the same song 🤔— Byrd (@KDthe1ne) October 27, 2017
The Nicki And Cardi Verses Were Definitely Recorded At Different Times.. It's Like The Luda And TI situation..Diss A Person On The Same Song— DocHicksTv | DHTV (@iAmDocHicks) October 27, 2017
Are Cardi and Nicki dissing each other on the same song? Lol— Kazeem Famuyide (@RealLifeKaz) October 27, 2017
Honestly? It's not far-fetched. In Cardi's verse, she raps:
Same hoes that was sendin' shots
They reachin' out like their back itchin'
Nicki, in turn, finished her verse with a particularly barbed (no pun intended) line:
It's a wrap, like the things on the head of a Saudi
Bitch, you my son, go and sit on the potty
But if we go back to Cardi's verse, she ends it like this:
Why would I hop in some beef (Why?)
When I could just hop in a Porsche?
You heard she gon' do what from who?
That's not a reliable source, no
While the subs and pettiness in general are hella enticing, I think it's fair enough to say that we should take Cardi at her word. Aside from that, can we just be happy that these badass, talented women are on the same track, spitting flames?

Cardi & Nicki Might As Well Drop An Album Together... Records Are Meant To Be Broken.... Both Of Them Together brings that 🔥🔥🔥#MotorSport— Joel DeLaCruz (@JDLC523) October 27, 2017
Side-note: people seemed more interested in getting jokes off about Remy, than anything:
Remy Ma is in the bathroom listening to Cardi and Nicki’s new song Motorsport with the water running. #MotorSport— NUFF (@nuffsaidNY) October 27, 2017

So... yeah. You might think you smell smoke. You might even think you see smoke. But there's no fire. Not yet, anyway.
