Cardi B took home the gilded trophy for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night (February 10). Par for the course, BET ran an article congratulating the platinum-selling rapper on her historical Grammy win and at the same time, managed to bait her nemesis Nicki Minaj.
Black Barbie took notice of the excerpt, “Meanwhile, Nick Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront” and the Barbz pounced.
As a result, BET pulled the article, but Nicki ultimately decided to drop out of her headlining performance at the 2019 BET Experience in Los Angeles this summer — and evidently, she’s taking Young Money with her.
“Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show,” she tweeted on Monday (February 11). “Summer Tour dates dropping soon.”
Nicki and Cardi were originally both expected to perform during the star-studded event on separate days. Nicki, Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, Trippie Redd and Bri Steves were scheduled to perform on June 21, while Cardi, Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby and City Girls were expected on June 22.
The two rap superstars have been butting heads for months. Last September, Cardi allegedly threw a shoe at Nicki during a New York Fashion Week event. Since then, they’ve stayed in their separate corners.
