Cardi B Shuts Down Rumors Of Copying Nicki Minaj’s Music Video

The Bronx-bred rapstress posts “receipts.”

Some people on the internet are still pushing the Cardi B vs Nicki Minaj narrative. Both Hip Hop superstars were in New York City this week to shoot separate videos, and Minaj fans claimed Cardi copied the Queens native.

Nicki Minaj reportedly filmed a music video for her single “We Go Up” featuring Fivio Foreign. Apparently, Cardi B shot visuals with Kay Flock affiliate Dougie B on the same day.

Social media users accused Cardi B of stealing from Nicki Minaj’s aesthetic because the “MotorSport” collaborators both recorded music videos in NYC surrounded by local residents. However, Cardi took to Instagram to dispel the rumors.

Cardi B wrote on Instagram:

In addition, Cardi B posted a video showing text messages between herself and Kay Flock’s manager from February and earlier this month. That correspondence included Cardi revealing she sent her verse for the new song on March 15.
