New York rapper Cardi B is sort of a big deal in 2018. The hip-hop diva has stepped forward to put a little respect on her own name.
On Thursday, Cardi jumped on Instagram to show fans and haters alike she’s nearing 100 career awards show nominations.

This week, B’s camp reportedly denied claims from rap rival Nicki Minaj about making deals to get radio play.
Sources directly involved in the management and music promotion for Cardi B’s debut album tell The Blast it is “absolutely false” that anyone got paid or gifts in exchange for airtime. They’re responding to Nicki Minaj going on her Queen Radio and eviscerating her hip-hop foe. (The Blast)
On Monday’s Queen Radio broadcast, Nicki Minaj exploded on Cardi and accused her of sending racist messages to a black woman on social media.
“Calling a dead child a monkey but telling people somebody talked about your child that nobody talked about your motherf*cking child so you can get some f*cking sympathy points?! Now we’re gonna get it in. Now we going to get into some things because I’m tired of people f*cking lying on me. So we gonna get into some things. You want to talk about stopping bags but there’s two innocent girls in the strip club right now that did nothing but go to the strip club and get money. Now they can’t get no money. Now who’s stopping bags? Because you got grown a** f*cking men showing up to where they at and where they work at. They can’t feed they kids. They can’t feed they f*cking family. They can’t feed they f*cking family because you mad at what another man sticking his d*ck inside of. You mad at a woman for what a man is doing!” (Queen Radio)
