- Rapper Cardi B has taken to social media in response to a female rapper, Dela Wesst, who accused her of stealing lyrics
- The two rappers engaged in a long back and forth on their Twitter pages
- Cardi noted that she only responded because the rapper crossed a line by attacking her fan page and also using a photo that features her daughter maliciously
Rapper Cardi B was recently forced to take to her official Twitter page in defense of herself after a female rapper identified as Dela Wesst called her out on the social media platform and accused her of lyrics theft.
Wesst in a Tiktok video shared on Twitter said the drama stated after she made a freestyle video of Blue Face’s Totianna and tagged Atlantic Records while sharing it on her page on February 8, 2019. She claimed this was followed by Cardi and her label releasing her version of the freestyle on February 18 of the same year.
However, Wesst claimed the drama got even more heated when Cardi released Clout on April 17, 2019, and she got calls from her friends that the rapper stole lyrics from her Totianna freestyle which was released in February 2019.
Watch her clip below:
Wesst in a different tweet picked out some words she used in her Totianna freestyle and wondered how they found their way to Cardi’s song.
The rapper also wrote out some lines from Cardi's Clout which she claimed were taken off her Totianna freestyle.
She quoted the lyrics on a photo of Cardi B and her daughter Kulture.

It appeared Wesst's move to include Cardi's daughter in the drama got the rapper infuriated.
The Money crooner took to her official Twitter page and noted that she only decided to responded to the allegations because of Wesst's attempt to drag her daughter into the picture.
She added that Wesst also crossed a line by attacking her fan page.

According to Cardi, she had recorded Clout in January 2019 which was way before Wesst posted her freestyle for Totianna on the internet.
