Cardi B has shut down the speculation that she is waiting for Nicki Minaj’s album before she drops her own.
The Bodak Yellow rapper made this clear during a row with Instagram trolls who accused her of feeding off Nicki’s clout for some press.
“I don’t understand why people who don’t like me keep telling me to drop my album. You don’t like me so why are you thirsty for my album? To talk shit, to suck dick?” Cardi said in a post shared on Pop Crave Instagram.
And when an Instagram user sounded off in the comment section saying, “She waiting for Nicki,” the rapper went ballistic.
“Waiting for what?” she asked, adding, “What is that going to do for me, and imma release my shit very very soon.”
It is worthy to note that there has been an unhealthy comparison between the young rapper and Nicki who has been in the game for a decade, especially after Cardi broke the Billboard Hot 100 record last year.
Cardi had planned on dropped her debut album last September but pushed back to October, and finally saying she will be taking her time to work on the album. “I have a lot of pressure on me,” she wrote on Twitter. “I have songs stashed up. I just don’t think they qualified for my album. Sometimes I think is ready sometimes I think it’s not so I’m going to take my time till it’s right.”
Well, one thing is certain: both Cardi and Nicki Minaj will be dropping their projects this year, and it most certainly will birth another unhealthy comparisons.
