Cardi B Refers To Nicki Minaj As The One Recent Female Rapper Who 'Dominated' In New Interview

Cardi B is kind of giving a shout out to Nicki Minaj.

While not naming her by name, in her latest interview with Apple Music, the 27-year-old rapper opened up how female rappers once dominated the music scene and why she thinks they got quiet.

“When I was younger, when I was eight… No wait, I’m lying. When I was six, seven, eight, there was a lot different female rappers. And then there was a time that there was no female rappers at all. I have to keep replaying songs from the early 2000s. I have to keep replaying it, replaying it, replaying it because for a while there wasn’t no female rapper,” Cardi shared. “And then there was one female rapper that dominated for a very long time.”

She adds, “And she did pretty good. She’s been still dominating.”

Cardi went on, saying that “you never, you never know if there is ever going to be a drought. You never know when people get tired of all the female rappers or people just stop… I don’t know, promoting them. Cause I don’t know what happened in that, in a time period. But there was none at all for a hot minute. So you just never know the prediction. Maybe there will be a lot. Maybe there’s going to be a time that people just get tired of it. And then there might be another rapper that just come and just take it over. You just never know, you know what I’m saying? We never know.”

There’s been a long feud between Cardi and Nicki, who met on the set of Migos’ “MotorSport” video. Their dispute escalated after a fight at a Fashion Week party in 2018.
