The feud between hip hop’s two top female artists, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, continues to escalate — only this time it’s not a physical altercation (like when the two almost got into it at a New York Fashion Week party or even comments made on social media or via interview — this time, it’s through merchandise. In this case, Nicki’s new bag line called “Nicki Stopped My Bag”:
The name refers to comments Cardi B made in response to she and Nicki’s almost altercation at New York Fashion Week, when the “I Like it Like That” featured singer chastised Minaj for making comments about Cardi and Offset’s newborn baby daughter, Kulture.
Although the shot fired at Cardi B is more tongue-in-cheek than vitriolic, props to Nicki for turning the antagonism into something that makes money for her. Besides, the Nicki/Cardi feud doesn’t need to get any more heated with Cardi’s recent legal troubles, where Cardi turned herself over to the police after allegedly ordering an attack at Angels Strip Club in Queens in August.
Is Nicki’s new merchandise line (which you can find at her official website) a clever disparagement or unnecessary beef? Let us know in the comments.
