A drama is brewing between Ice Spice and Cardi B, Media Take Out can be heard – at least according to fans of the two rappers on Twitter.
There are many similarities between the two artists. Cardi is Dominican and Ice Spice is half Dominican (she’s also half black). And both women have been catapulted to the top of the hip-hop world in no time.
For weeks, fans of Cardi have been goading her into pursuing Ice Spice, which they believe will undo Cardi’s style. And so far, Cardi has withheld any possible animosity towards the young artist.
But after Ice Spice signed with Nicki Minaj – Cardi’s nemesis – the Bodak Yellow artist seems to have started taking a few subliminals at Ice Spice.
Cardi yesterday ranted at length about how hard it was for her to become a superstar – and hinted that some of the “new artists” hadn’t paid their dues. She didn’t mention Ice Spice by name, but it certainly sounded like she was throwing shots.
Recognized by Forbes as one of the most influential female rappers of all time, Cardi B holds multiple records among women in hip-hop; She is the female rapper with the most number one singles (five) on the Billboard Hot 100, the only one to have multiple solo number one singles, and the only one to have number one in two decades (2010s and 2020s). reached in the charts. She is also the female rapper with the most diamond-certified songs (three) by the RIAA, the most highly certified female rapper of all time in their Top Artists (Digital Singles) ranking, and has 100 million certified units (album and songs). sold in the US alone.
She is also the rapper with the most songs with a billion streams on Spotify – where she also has the most streamed female rap album. She was the first major artist to top the Billboard Global 200. Her accolades include a Grammy Award, eight Billboard Music Awards, six Guinness World Records, six American Music Awards, 14 BET Hip Hop Awards and two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Awards.
In 2018, Time magazine included her in its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2020 Billboard honored her as Woman of the Year. Outside of music, she became the creative director of entertainment magazine Playboy in 2022.
