Popular American rapper, Onika Tanya Maraj, popularly known as Nicki Minaj has taken a swipe at her fellow colleague, Cardi B, in an Instagram rant post
In her post, Minaj appreciated her fans and recounted how far she has come.
The American rapper, who is reportedly getting married to her childhood friend, Kenneth Petty, revealed she released her first mix-tape 12 years ago and she is proud she wrote the entire single song herself.
In her words;
“12 years ago I dropped my 1st mixtape. Wrote every single word on every single song. I was so proud of that. Eventually, the Barbz were all wearing pink hair, Chinese bangs, & Barbie chains. Colourful wigs came all the way back in style. Everyone became Barbies & Dolls. I always shouted out my influences in my interviews. Nowadays, it’s become cool to pretend u weren’t influenced by other artists. S/O to the ones big enough to do it: Kash, Asian, Cuban, Saweetie, Meg, Malibu, etc.
No female rapper (other than Trina) did a song w/me or congratulated me on my billboard accomplishments. I didn’t mind. I never felt they were obligated to do so. Just like Beyoncé isn’t obligated to congratulate or collaborate with Normani, etc. — I never had a crusade by radio stations, influencers & blogs to make my song number 1 when Anaconda was #2 on the Hot 100. I never had a group of men in the studio writing my songs for me so it took a while between albums. Please stop these write-ups about what I didn’t do.
Y’all are really sick & ima call y’all out one by one on Queen Radio. Most of yall doing these write-ups have never fought for anything in life. You just sit on the sidelines & watch the doers do!!!!
To my fans;
I love, cherish you, adore you, and thank you. God bless you.
Billboard, y’all wrote a piece about how a white artist influenced me, Bey & Rih?????? Where’s the article on the black girl who charted after 10 years of no female rapper charting? I didn’t influence trends I guess… go fkn figure.”
