Episode eight of Nicki Minaj's Queen Radio is live via Beats 1 and Apple Music. The latest episode — which kicks off at 1 p.m. EST / 10 a.m. EST — comes just days after Nicki reportedly got into a heated scuffle with Cardi B at the Harpers Bazaar ICONS party during NYFW.
After a mix into by Funkmaster Flex, Minaj addressed the events with Cardi B by playing a soundbite of Cardi saying "Nothing is off-limits. I hate when some people come at me like, "Why you coming at kids for." I'm my mother's baby." Talking about the Harpers Bazaar situation directly, she said, "The way they passed by looking at this disgusting commotion I was mortified. I could not believe how humiliated it all felt. Because we, how we made ourselves look."
Responding to Cardi's allegations that what caused the fight was Nicki commenting about her daughter Kulture, Nicki said, "I would never discuss anyone's child. For someone to pin that on me...[that's] because I'm the bad guy and they know people would believe them. I just want to let the world know that Onika Tanya Maraj will never has never speak ill of anyone's child. I am not a clown, that's clown shit."
Of Cardi B, at one point Nicki called her a "disgusting pig," and said, "She has built her career off sympathy and payola." (A rep for Atlantic Records was not immediately available for comment.) Nicki also accused Cardi of telling a unnamed male rapper to not appear in one of her videos.
At one point, a woman named "Clarissa" called into the show and told Nicki a story about how Cardi B allegedly called her deceased son "a monkey" in response to a comment Clarissa had left on her Instagram. (Unclear at this point, but the comment might be a part of a number of problematic posts that surfaced in 2017.) Another allegation Nicki made in the first show's hour was that multiple women were attacked under order by Cardi B, but she did not go into any concrete details.
