Please note the following story contains language that could be considered offensive.
Nicki Minaj has addressed her recent altercation with Cardi B at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party during New York Fashion Week on Friday (September 8th). During the latest episode of Nicki’s Queen Radio show on Beats 1, she spoke on the incident and said, “The other night, I was part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch upper echelon… people who have their life together. The way they passed by looking at this disgusting commotion. I was mortified.” She added, “I could not believe how humiliated it all felt because we—and I use we loosely, and I’ma clarify we—how we made ourselves look.”
Nicki denied ever speaking ill of Cardi’s daughter, Kulture, which is said to be the reason behind the altercation. Nicki said, [“I would never discuss anyone’s child and it’s so sad for someone to pin that on me because I’m the bad guy and they know people would believe them. I would never talk about anyone’s child or parenting. I don’t care about anyone’s parenting. I don’t give a sh*t. It’s so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy. Onika Tanya Maraj would never, has never, and will never speak ill of anyone’s child. I am not a clown. That’s clown sh*t.”]
Nicki later played a clip of Cardi from an interview with THE FADER, where she said that “nothing was off limits,” even when talking about children. In the clip, Cardi said, “I am my mother’s kid. Nothing is off limits.”
Nicki even accused Cardi of payola and sleeping with DJs to get her records played. On the show, the rapper said, “Who are you angry at, sweetheart? Do you know what it’s like to sit in your room for hours writing raps? You came into my f**king culture. I never had to f**k a DJ to play my songs.” Nicki also said that Cardi built her career off of “sympathy” and “payola.”
She then said, “I’m not a b*tch in the strip club & I’m not a b*tch on a reality show.” Nicki later added, “You put your hands on certain people and you gonna die.”
Later on in the show, Nicki had a guest call in named Clarissa, who shared her experience of being cyber bullied by Cardi on Instagram back in 2014. During the exchange, Cardi allegedly referred to Clarissa’s dead child as a “monkey.” After hanging up from the caller, Nicki said, [“Calling a dead child a monkey but telling people somebody talked about your child that nobody talked about your motherf**king child so you can get some f**king sympathy points?! Now we’re gonna get it in. Now we going to get into some things because I’m tired of people f**king lying on me. So we gonna get into some things. You want to talk about stopping bags but there’s two innocent girls in the strip club right now that did nothing but go to the strip club and get money. Now they can’t get no money. Now who’s stopping bags? Because you got grown a** f**king men showing up to where they at and where they work at. They can’t feed they kids. They can’t feed they f**king family. They can’t feed they f**king family because you mad at what another man sticking his d*ck inside of. You mad at a woman for what a man is doing!”]
Nicki continued, [“She refers to you black women, we got the receipts for that too, she refers to you black woman as monkeys and roaches. Roaches! These are the women going hard for her. The roaches. When the lights go out. They scramble. We roaches child. Black women is roaches now child. We roaches. Be clear. So there are two beautiful women right now who have been accused of sleeping with whoever they slept with. They were allegedly attacked and cut up everywhere. But not by women. By men! You sending men to beat on women!”]
On another note, Remy Ma — who has publicly beefed with Nicki in the past, has weighed in on Cardi and Nicki’s altercation on Joe Budden’s new Revolt show, State Of The Culture. Rem said, “Let’s be clear—there really wasn’t a fight.” She added, “People need to stop talking crazy. Stop talking crazy, stop tweeting crazy, stop talking all this Instagram banging.”

He adds, “You can only hope someone feels a sense of beauty or connection out of your suffering – that’s the highest goal as an artist.”
Mike announced the new song on Instagram, along with a video clip that indicates he’s ushering in a new era with this new music.
