As the world continues to shower Cardi B with congratulatory messages after netting the No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” on Monday (Sept. 25), Nicki Minaj chimed in to send the Bronx star some endearing words via Twitter.
“Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement,” wrote Minaj. “Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it.”
For the last several weeks, rumors have swirled regarding a potential feud between the two female MCs after Cardi’s meteoric rise this past summer. After “Bodak Yellow” ballooned into a juggernaut on the mainstream front, fans pondered whether Minaj was truly a fan of the “Lick” star’s success.
Speculation increased when Minaj unleashed a blistering verse on London On Da Beat’s record “No Flag,” where she rapped, “Lil’ bitch I heard these labels tryna make another me/ Everything you getting little hoe is cause of me.”
Cardi’s latest milestone makes her the second female rapper since Lauryn Hill to score a No. 1 record on the Hot 100 without any guest appearances. Take a look at Minaj’s tweet below.
