Cardi B and Nicki Minaj may never be friends. The rappers’ beef escalated to a physical altercation at Harper’s Bazaar ICONS party during New York Fashion Week 2018. Cardi charged Nicki, accused her of talking about her daughter Kulture and threw her shoe at Nicki.

Did the two always have bad blood between them? Let’s take a look at the timeline of Nicki and Cardi’s drama.

Cardi B went on stage with Remy Ma during the Hot 97’s Summer Jam festival. Remy and Nicki notoriously have a feud.

July 2017

August 2017

Cardi has catapulted into fame thanks to her hit single “Bodak Yellow.” While performing at MoMa PS1 Cardi decided to shade an anonymous woman to the crowd.

“You know this b***h, right? She never f**king liked me and now all of a sudden she wants to be friends with me. No b***h. I still don’t like you b***h.”

Cardi never named names, but people assume it’s about Nicki.

Later in the month the song “No Flags” by London On Da Track dropped with 21 Savage, Offset and Nicki Minaj featured on it. Cardi’s verse starts off with, “Lil’ b***h I hear these labels tryna make another me / Everything you getting little hoe is cause of me.”

Many people believed that Nicki was dissing Cardi even though there was no evidence. It’s just rooted in the fact that people and the media like to pit woman against each other. Because Cardi was an up and coming female rapper, of course, people would say her and Nicki have beef without any proof.

On Genius, the lyric is annotated that it’s just a general diss because labels have been trying to replicate Nicki. The user specifically referred to English rapper Lady Leshurr who has said that Atlantic Records offered to sign her if she started beef with Nicki.

Nicki took to Twitter to deny that the song is about Cardi.

It sure ain't 🤷🏽‍♀️ Wrote this one a cpl months ago too #NoFlag 🚫🏳💨

October 2017

Migos dropped their track “Motorsport” featuring both Nicki and Cardi. People thought the two were beefing and throwing shade in their verses towards each other. Nicki tweeted about the rumored dissing and cleared the air.

November 2017

Cardi went on The Norte Show on Capital Xtra and talked about Nicki and “Motorsport.” She wouldn’t outwardly say that she and Nicki were on good terms. She then went on to say that Nicki changed her verse.

“When I heard the track, her verse wasn’t finished. It was not the verse that is on right now,” Cardi said. “Quavo told me to get on the song, and I just felt it was a perfect opportunity for me to be on a track that’s big like them.”

Then Nicki supposedly subtweeted at Cardi calling her “ungrateful.”

The corniest thing you can be is ungrateful. Give thanks.

December 2017

The ‘Motorsport” music video drops and people immediately started drama. The root of the drama was that Cardi filmed separately than Cardi making people believe it was done on purpose.

April 2018

Right before Cardi’s first album Invasion of Privacy comes out she talks about her beef with Nicki. Interviewed by Ebro Darden for Beats 1 Radio Cardi said, “I just feel like it’s really internet made-up,” she says. “I really feel like fans and people really want to see that happen because it’s really entertaining. To see people beef is entertaining.”

Then later that month Nicki went on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 Radio to drop two singles and be interviewed. Nicki was unfiltered and talked about Drake, Meek Mill and Cardi.

Nicki said that Cardi’s Capital Xtra interview hurt her feelings.

“The first interview [Cardi B] did after ‘MotorSport’ came out, it just really hurt me because she looked so aggravated and angry,” Minaj said. “She just kept saying she didn’t hear [my verse]…I was like, ‘What?’”

She then went on to explain the music video. She said that she filmed on a different day because she and Cardi were using the same hairdresser and there was a scheduling conflict. There wasn’t drama that caused the different filming days.

May 2018

The two rappers came face to face at the Met Gala. Their encounter spurred tons of memes and that the two squashed their beef.

August 2018

Nicki’s album Queen dropped and fans believed the track “Ganja Burns” was a diss at Cardi.

The lyrics talk about Nicki writing her own verses and saying “body” like “Bardi.”

Okay, so, on “Ganja Burns”, Nicki is gonna insist that she says, “… bury the BODY” but, I just listened TWICE & I def. hear: “… bury the BARDI” *sigh* #Queen #QueenRadio
