Cardi B has responded to the rumours that her team's goal was "to knock Nicki (Minaj) out" back in 2017. At the time, Nicki was regarded as the best female rapper across the globe and was topping the hip-hop charts.
Love & Hip Hop star Jessie Woo claimed that she met someone who was on Cardi's team who allegedly told her their plan. Jessie was a guest on Hollywood Unlocked, according to Complex. She claimed:
"This is something that was told to me, that yeah, like, 'Putting Cardi out, our goal was to knock Nicki out'."
Cardi B snaped and defended herself when Hollywood Unlocked played her a snippet from Jessie's interview. The Bodak Yellow hitmaker claimed Jessie was lying during the interview.
"The lies!!! I hate that I gotta address shit that is so irrelevant."
"This is why they’ll never makes songs together because of social media gossip."
"Fighting for 'number 1' meanwhile all of them have their own place in Hip Hop. They’re all number 1 in their own demographic. They need to collaborate and grow together."
"This is getting boring honestly speaking. I love both of them but this is nonsense now."
"Male rappers can feature each other but why are those only two female rappers constantly fighting?"
"Lol, sounds like something Cardi would say though."
"We need to let this go. Plenty of room for both of these women."
