It’s only been four days since Nicki Minaj’s last episode of Queen Radio, but a lot has transpired. The “Barbie Tingz” rapper has attended a number of NYFW events, including one fateful Harper’s Bazaar party that ended with Cardi B trying to fight her and a now infamous red shoe being thrown.
Things have been quiet on Nicki’s end since the incident, despite Cardi’s Instagram post about the altercation, but now she’s using Queen Radio to speak up.
Nicki started off the show by calling 6ix9ine, who she collaborated with on “Fefe.” Before hopping off the show, 6ix9ine made a point about how people “can’t compare who been in the game ten years plus” to someone who just started their career, seemingly referring to comparisons between Nicki and Cardi B.
Nicki then played a recording of Cardi from a video interview with The FADER. In the interview, Cardi says “nothing is off limits” when it comes to feuding with people, not even their kids. This is the video below.
“The other night I had to go through something so mortifying,” she said, going on to refer to her altercation with Cardi as a “disgusting commotion.”
“I would never talk about anyone’s child or anyone’s parenting,” she continued. “And it’s so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy…I am not a clown. That’s clown shit.”
Nicki said Cardi’s claims that she talked negatively about Kulture, Cardi’s parenting, or is stopping her bags is completely false. “You knew that when that footage came out you would look dumb,” she said, explaining why Cardi and her team would make up the accusation. “I didn’t even feel the need to defend myself that night. …She has built her career off of sympathy and payola.”
After a music break, Nicki brought on a woman who claimed Cardi B called her dead child a monkey on Instagram. She also referenced the two women who are reportedly planning to sue Cardi for allegedly ordering a physical attacks on them. Nicki then called Cardi out on her former use of the word “roaches” to refer to darker skinned black women.
“The lord gave you a blessing with a bundle of joy and the only thing on your mind was to attack people and to stop their bags,” Nicki said, after suggesting Cardi might have postpartum depression. “Who are you angry at sweetheart?”
After more than an hour into her show, Nicki revealed her “Barbie Dreams” video would be dropping later on Monday. She also awarded 50 Cent, Lil Uzi Vert, and 6ix9ine King of the Week for sticking by her and standing up for her during all this drama.
