The Nicki Minaj And Cardi B Feud Might Not Be Over After All And Things Are Getting Messy

    Just when you thought the drama was over, the two rappers appeared to take some pretty savage jabs at each other.

    The feud between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B looks to have been reignited as both appeared to take some savage and not-so-subtle digs at each other earlier this week.

    It all started when Nicki made an appearance on the Joe Budden Podcast and spoke about a recent social media craze where fans rank their top 50 rappers of all time.

    However, people immediately thought Nicki was taking a dig at Cardi when she said: "I would feel so fucking crazy if I had number ones and Grammys and ain't on nobody top 50 list."

    Cardi has two No. 1 singles under her belt and also won her first Grammy earlier this year. Despite being lauded as one of the most talented rappers of all time, Nicki has yet to hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 or win a Grammy award, which has led to heated debates between fans about Nicki being overlooked.

    Nicki continued to say that the Grammys have "brainwashed" people into thinking that winning an award is about talent, appearing to suggest she doesn't think this is the case.

    Talking about the top 50 lists and Grammy Awards, Nicki said: "We just sat here and spoke for [an] hour and also I've seen stuff on the internet about this top 50 thing. [I've] not once seen anyone say: 'Well, does he have a Grammy?' Yet the Grammys have brainwashed us into thinking for years that the Grammys are about what? Talent."

    Not holding back, Nicki added: "[I came] in this game with an authentic come up, writing raps, and doing what the fuck was really actually necessary. No Instagram, no reality shows, no sucking DJ's dicks."

    People immediately assumed this was another jab at Cardi, who was popular on Instagram and appeared on the reality TV show Love & Hip Hop before breaking into the mainstream with "Bodak Yellow".

    Not long after the podcast episode aired, Cardi seemed to catch wind of the comments. Taking to social media, she posted a screenshot of her recent album sales and, appearing to reference the top 50 list debate, said: "Only list I give a fuck about."

    One year and some change later and my album is still SELLING .Only list I give a fuck about .πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈHave s beautiful day everybody 😘😘😘

    An hour later? Nicki posted some stats of her own, marking the anniversary of her latest album, Queen.

    Appearing to respond to comparisons between her and Cardi, Nicki also posted a list of the biggest sales weeks for debut albums this decade β€” she took the second spot while Cardi landed at No. 6.

    Biggest sales weeks for debut albums this decade 1. Thank Me Later 447k 2. Pink Friday 375k 3. WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP... 313k 4. My World 2.0 283k 5. 5 Seconds of Summer 259k 6. Invasion of Privacy 255k 7. Title 238k 8. Harry Styles 230k 9. Cole World 217k 10. Clear As Day 197k

    Speaking of her 2010 album, Nicki said: "Pink Friday also means a lot to me, we did those first week numbers when only album sales counted. Single sales couldn’t count toward ur album sales until me & others like me, demanded that all of the music being stolen or streamed, start getting counted towards billboard album chart positions."

    This all comes a year after the two rappers clashed at a New York Fashion Week party last September, which ended in Cardi being escorted out of the venue by security.
