Nicki Minaj is turning bad blood into profit.
Was the move petty? Some might say so. Was it genius? Without a doubt.
About a month ago, the two rappers got into a physical altercation at Harper’s Bazaar’s Icon party, where Cardi allegedly threw a shoe at Nicki. The incident, which confirmed the longstanding beef rumors, prompted Cardi to post a statement about Nicki’s alleged behavior behind the scenes.
“I've let a lot of shit slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, fuck up the way I eat,” Cardi wrote. “You've threaten other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you'll stop fuckin with them!! I let you talk big shit about me!!”
The “stop my bags” portion was eventually turned into a meme that was promoted heavily by Nicki. And now, the Queens rapper has decided to splash the insult on a range of T-shirts, coaches jackets, and backpacks.
The “Nicki Stopped My Bag” collection is available now online. You can also check out reactions to the shady release in the tweets below.
