Cardi B is capping off a monster week of promo following the release of her debut album Invasion of Privacy. The album has already broken the Apple Music record previously set by Taylor Swift's Reputation for the most streamed album by a female artist in its first week, with 100 million worldwide streams so far. She officially announced her pregnancy during a performance on SNL, co-hosted The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and has also done her fair share of radio interviews that come along with promoting a new project. Earlier today, Cardi sat down with DJ Whoo Kid to chop it up and made it known that she is not a proponent of diss tracks. The topic pops up around the 4:17 mark of the interview.
"I am my own person. I don't care what anybody else talks about, or what anybody else does," Cardi tells Whoo Kid. "I'm not the type of person to be going back-and-forth with people on songs. That's just not my thing."
She goes on to mention how fellow female rappers like Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj each have their own unique sound, but that a lot of the current male rappers sound similar. Despite the interview taking place before her "beef" with Nicki Minaj resurfaced today thanks to Nicki's interview with Zane Lowe, Cardi's comments hold a little more weight now given the current situation she now finds herself in.
During her interview, Nicki made a note of the alleged beef between Cardi and herself that started around the time Migos' "Motorsport" video dropped. Eyebrows were raised because the two women did not appear together at any point in the video. She says her feelings were hurt when she felt that Cardi and Migos had made her out to be the villain whenever they addressed the situation.
Following the interview, Nicki's original verse from the aforementioned "Motorsport" surfaced online that included a Cardi B name drop with the bar, "If Cardi the QB/I'm Nick Lombardi." The final version switches Cardi's name to Quavo, but many are saying the initial version could have potentially been a light jab at the Invasion of Privacy rapper. Minaj also addressed the bar in question on Twitter.
If there wasn't any beef between the two female rappers before, it certainly looks like there might be some bad blood now following Nicki's latest interview.
Beef is not the only thing Cardi discussed with DJ Whoo Kid. She also touched on getting a cosign from Oprah, getting sick during the last week of recording, Meek Mill's current legal situation, and more. Check out more from the interview in the video player above.
