The Migos, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B's collaboration “MotorSport” has been out for just under a month now, and Nicki can make the same admission as the millions of people who visit lyric sites: She missed a bar. Proximity is a bit of an issue here, seeing as how one of her collaborators on the song wrote the bar about her. Nevertheless, Nicki says she didn’t initially catch when Takeoff mentioned certain parts of her anatomy.
Take Off verse on Motorsport. 🤔😩 it’s my shit tho but ummm 🤣 I feel like I didn’t peep them lines until the song came out. I was like 😲— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) November 25, 2017
“Take Off verse on Motorsport. It’s my shit tho but ummm I feel like I didn’t peep them lines until the song came out. I was like,” Nicki tweeted Saturday, punctuating her missive with various emojis.
The “them lines” Nicki was referring to were Takeoff’s following bars:
“If Nicki should show me her titty/Right hand on the Bible, I swear I won’t tell/If I get to play with that kitty/I wonder how many platinums we gon’ sell…”
Nicki and her followers seemed to have some fun with the reference, and Nicki implied things might’ve been different had she initially caught the reference.

“Glad she didn’t stop Takeoff’s bag,” at Twitter user named @BigKaahuna tweeted, before Nicki replied with, “I would’ve if I had realized he was talking about me in that part. I didn’t peep that lil 5 letter word ‘Nicki.’”
Even some Nicki’s hardcore fans apparently missed the fact that Takeoff directed the lines at her.

As it currently stands with Takeoff’s thirst-worthy line included, “MotorSport” is at the No. 15 spot on Billboard magazine’s “Hot 100” singles chart. The Culture II single is up eight spots from its previous position a week ago, and Cardi B says that the "MotorSport" video is set to premiere on December 1.
