Cardi B and Nicki Minaj presented us with the feud that shows no sign of slowing down, after their infamous bust-up at New York Fashion Week last month.
The two came to blows and haven’t stopped blowing ever since, with both rappers taking to social media and radio stations galore to sound off against one another. Now, Nicki has got her merchandise in on the action, by releasing some pretty tongue-in-cheek bags that harp back to one of Cardi’s comments in wake of their melee.
Today, though, Cardi seemingly responded, as she showed off a new tattoo that appeared to reference their digs, as well as her own music. It’s all very convenient, isn’t it? ‘Get up 10,’ the ink read, in a reference to her song of the same name, which chimed on the saying ‘Get knocked down nine times, get up 10.’
She captioned the shot: ‘WE GONE WIN KNOCK ME DOWN 9 TIMES !! Love my fans.’ That’s a pretty strong message, right there. While she was arrested and charged with assault and reckless endangerment last week, Nicki’s merch seemed to knock her while she was already down. Pink and black backpacks landed on the Queen rapper’s site, that read: ‘Nicki stopped my bag.’
For those keeping up, this was direct reference to Cardi’s message to the rapper following their 6 September fight at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS NYFW party. ‘I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, fuck up the way I eat,’ Cardi B wrote on Instagram. Stop my bag, for those who need an urban refresher, is a way to describe someone getting in the way of your income. The more you know. This can only escalate the tension between the two rappers, at a time that is already pretty dang tense.
