During the 2017 MTV VMAs, Cardi addressed the rumored beef between her and Nicki. She declared that she had no ill blood with anybody and that she only wanted to make music and money.
Nicki came out to congratulate Bardi after her single Bodak Yellow hit the number one spot. They seemed to have squashed whatever beef was present because, in October of the same year, that is 2017, the two featured in a song by Migos named MotorSport. They even appeared in the official music video of the track, but in different scenes. The two later bumped into each other at the 2018 MET Gala.
They appeared to be chatting and in good terms. However, when the two met at the 2018 New York Fashion Week, things went left. Cardi supposedly got into a physical altercation with Minaj. Reports indicate that Bardi had approached Nicki's table, aiming at resolving their issues. However, Nicki did not have it. She elbowed Cardi in her face, forcing the mother of one to throw her shoe towards Minaj.
Later on, Kulture's mother unleashed explosive Instagram videos and rants following this incident. She even went ahead and accused Minaj of lying about endorsement deals and collaborations. Nicki later took to her Twitter to respond to the claims by Cardi before the two calling in a temporary truce. However, it is believed that despite the truce, Nicki might have thrown a bit of shade to Cardi on the track MAMA by 6ix9ine.
Cardi B real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar. Most people might not know it because she hardly uses it. The reality television star has a very successful career. She has released hit after hit and has even won a Grammy Award due to her impeccable music talent.
