Nicki Minaj Congratulates Cardi B on ‘Bodak Yellow’ Topping Hot 100, Cardi B Responds

On Monday, Nicki Minaj congratulated Cardi B on scoring the No. 1 record in the country with "Bodak Yellow."

UPDATE: Monday evening, Cardi B responded to Nicki Minaj’s tweet, thanking her and telling the superstar rapper, “This means sooo much coming from you!” 


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.” 

After “No Flag,” fans assumed Cardi fired back in retaliation on G-Eazy’s new record “No Limit,” where she countered with lines like, “Can you stop with all the subs?/ Bitch I ain’t Jared.”

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.
