Over the years, Female Rap has taught us that there’s only room on the top for one female rap queen. From the early days of the 80’s with the “Roxanne Wars” , to the 90’s with the Lil Kim and Foxy Brown beef, and even right now during the modern era with Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj. The Hip Hop game is notorious for pitting two talented female emcees against each other.
One beef in particular that was nearly manufactured was between this era’s “Queen of Rap”, Nicki Minaj, and her heir apparent, Cardi B. Both are two of the biggest names in Hip Hop with one whose momentum is swinging upward (Cardi B) and another who is already solidified but has remained stagnant for quite some time (Nicki Minaj).
These two icons in Urban Culture finally collided on the Migos lead single,”Motor Sport”, off their Sophomore album, Culture 2.
Although the Cardi and Nicki pairing may not have the same relationship dynamic as real life best friends LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, it is great to see two female artists at the top of their game come together to bless the culture and to show that there is room at the top for both women just like Bron and D Wade showed during their prime years that two superstars could put aside their egos to win multiple championships. Hopefully this is will be the first of many and that we would see a collab from both female emcees on each other’s respective albums.
