There's Some Drama Going On About Nicki Minaj / Cardi B's "MotorSport"

After "MotorSport" was released, apparently rumors started to swell that Nicki Minaj didn't know that Cardi B would also be on the track. 

Joe Budden weighed in on the drama, quoted by Complex saying "I think that Kanye [West] suggested to Migos to put Nicki on this song," Budden said. "I do not think that Migos or anybody stepped to Nicki and said, 'We have a record featuring Migos and Cardi and we would like you to get on it.' I don't think that happened. […] I don't think there was a Cardi verse anywhere in this equation."

Joe happened to be somewhat right on this, because Nicki addressed that rumor on her Twitter, that when she actually recorded the track, it was just supposed to be her and Quavo, but that later it was presented, and she said "Ok let's do it."

I was on the song w/Quavo. No one else was on it. He called & asked if I think we should put Bardi on it, I said "ok let's do it". The end.

Migos weren't even on it yet. Just Quavo. The conspiracy theories r just so tired. Relax. Breathe. Imagine me not knowing who on a song w/me

Anything w/my name on it gets approved by me. It can't even go on a streaming service w/o me hearing it & giving written approval.

These are men in our culture who simply refuse to let it go. They don't do this to male M.C.'s. But yo #Motorsport #1 added on urban radio????????


Nicki has a point. You don't see Male MC's having this much "beef rumors." Nicki knows she's not the only female rapper out there, for one. The other thing, why do we have to pit women against other women? Sounds like that junk that Nicki and Taylor Swift got into before. Females need to stick together, we're always outnumbered in industry.


Amy Cooper is one with the force and the force is with her.
