Latest Hip Hop News: T.I. Thinks Nicki Minaj And Cardi B Should Be Celebrated Rather Than Being Pit Against Each Other
If you recall, Nicki Minaj’s fanbase came for Tip “T.I.” Harris earlier this month after he had suggested that she could not be on the same Top 50 rappers lists as Lil Kim. This time he was at the Rap Radar podcast with Cardi to promote their Netflix competition show Rhythm + Flow. Elliott Wilson and Brian “B. Dot” Miller, the expediTIously host wanted to address the backlash faced for putting art lauding both Cardi and Nicki in the same Lil Trap House Pop Up installation.
“Everybody [was like], ‘How could you? [Cardi] hasn’t been rapping long enough! She ain’t put out enough! You’re being disrespectful to Nicki!’ When does celebrating two queens become disrespectful to one? I never understood that,” said Tip. “This is an acknowledgment. Both of these young ladies have struggled and overcame obstacles and defied the odds to put themselves in positions to represent [themselves] and the next generation.”
He continued, “Why in the hell are you trying to pit one against the other? Whether they have their own personal differences, that ain’t my job to perpetuate that. And I ain’t got to choose a side. Unlike you miserable, lonely motherf*ckers. I have my own opinion. I’m a free thinker, and free thinkers think freely.”

Meanwhile, Megan Thee Stallion shared a similar opinion about the matter in August. She said, “[Nicki and Cardi] are two different people, two different rappers. It’s not even the same. I feel like we need to stop trying to compare them. I love both of them, so I would definitely like to collab with Cardi too.”
