While much of the debate has shimmered down over whether or not Cardi B or Nicki Minaj had the better verse on “Motorsport,” there still remains many underlying questions surrounding the track coming to fruition.
And now it appears as though Cardi has finally addressed the controversy surrounding her guest verse as well as revealing some new details regarding the single’s release.
During a recent sit down with Capital XTRA, while overseas in London, the “Bodak Yellow'” rapper clarified a few details regarding her recent collaboration with the Head Barb. If you recall, the Migos-backed tracked caused quite a stir on social media about whether or not Nicki was aware that Cardi was going to be on the Atlanta trio’s latest effort.
Some listeners even insinuated that the two leading ladies might be sneak dissing each other on the song. According to Cardi, however, while Nicki admitted that she and her team cleared the song before it dropped, the Bronx native says she never heard Nicki’s full verse until the track was officially released.
“Well, when I heard the track, her verse wasn’t finished,” Cardi B said. “Or it’s not the verse that’s [on there] right now. And Quavo told me that to get on the song, and I just felt like it’s a perfect opportunity for me to be on a track that’s big like them. Cause those are two big people, and I just started in the game. And I just know if I get on this record, it’s gonna be crazy. Like, who doesn’t want it?”
The Grammy-nominated rapper also added that she “spoke to [Nicki] before” in person, but didn’t clarify how the conversation went, and whether or not they left things on a friendly note.
