Cardi responded directly to Nicki in a series of videos on Instagram later in the evening. First, Cardi addressed Nicki’s claims about the Fashion Week altercation. “You lie so much you can’t keep up with your f-ckin’ lies,” Cardi said. “First you say you’ve got the footage, but then you say you wanna pay somebody $100,000 if they give you the footage? Yo, make sense when you’re talking!”
Nicki also claimed that Cardi prevented Offset and 21 Savage from doing a video for their London on the Track collaboration “No Flag,” and also stopped 21 Savage from appearing on the remix to “Krippy Kush.” (Travis Scott allegedly appeared in his place.) Nicki further claimed that Cardi had previously asked Nicki to appear on her “second single,” but she turned it down, due to the fact that “Motorsport,” which featured both women, was coming out around the same time.
In response to Nicki’s comments about “Motorsport,” Cardi detailed her issues with Nicki allegedly re-recording her verse for the song. In response to Nicki’s “Krippy Kush” comments, Cardi claimed that she’s not close enough to 21 Savage to “have that power” to stop him from working on songs or videos. Cardi then shared an alleged message from the “Krippy Kush” producer Rvssian arguing that Cardi had nothing to do with Savage backing out of the video.
Cardi also claimed that Nicki “barked at [her] managers” for giving Cardi a featured spot on G-Eazy’s “No Limit.” She continued: “Maybe I should sue you for defamation of character since you wanna claim that I’m using something called payola, because you don’t understand why I’m so f-ckin’ successful.” The legal threat was in response to Nicki’s September 10 comments claiming that Cardi had practiced payola.
Nicki also denied a report, spread by Cardi’s sister, that she had leaked Cardi’s phone number to her fans. Cardi responded to that claim as well, arguing that it wasn’t a coincidence that her number was leaked one hour after the fashion week altercation.
Today, both women claimed they were tired of talking about their feud. “I’m tired of talking about it too,” Cardi said. “I’m tired of the f-cking whole internet sh-t, I’m tired of the interview sh-t. If you really wanna talk about it, you know where to link me. … We can talk about it, or we can fight it out. I’m with whatever.”
Nicki later responded to Cardi’s videos in a series of tweets. “I’ll pay you to take a lie detector test about every claim I made on #QueenRadio,” she wrote. “You won’t. I must admit you’re a convincing liar.” Nicki then invited Cardi to appear on “Queen Radio.”
After tweeting about Cardi multiple times, Nicki tweeted that she wanted to focus on positivity. “I know this stuff is entertaining & funny to a lot of people but I won’t be discussing this nonsense anymore,” she wrote. Cardi took a screenshot of the tweet and added, “Alright then! Let’s keep it positive and keep it pushing!”
