She also uploaded a video from a 2016 concert and wrote: ‘7/29/2016! NO LABEL, NO RADIO PLAY, FRESH OUT OF LOVE AND HIP HOP, ONLY 200K IN MY BANK ACCOUNT, MY FIRST TOUR !!!

‘Nobody can make you feel like you cheated yourself or you don’t deserve to be where you at when you KNOW YOU WORKED YOURSELF TO THE TOP !!! THANK YOU BARDIGANG! YOU BEEN HERE SINCE THE GET GO!’ [sic]

Her remarks came after Nicki used her Apple Music Beats 1 show on Monday to slam Cardi and accuse her of building her career on ‘sympathy and payola’ — the practice of paying radio stations to play a song

Speaking days after their shocking altercation at a New York Fashion Week party, the Chun-Li hitmaker said of the brawl: ‘You knew that when that footage came out, you were about to look dumb.

‘So your team, they hurry up and put out a statement. I didn’t stop anyone’s bags. She had to say that because she has built her career of sympathy and payola.’

She also admitted that the row had been a ‘humiliating’ experience for her, saying: ‘The other night I was part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch upper echelon people who have their life together.

‘I was in a Gaultier gown — off the motherf***ing runway — and I could not believe how humiliated we all felt.’

However, Cardi B reportedly feels ‘zero remorse’ for throwing a shoe at Nicki during their furious showdown, which took place on Saturday.

The I Like It hitmaker was simply ‘defending her daughter’s honour’ after hearing the Anaconda rapper had been ‘talking trash’ about her family, sources claimed.

Cardi believes Nicki likes to ‘incite people for sport’ and was so enraged by her alleged comments that she would throw a shoe at her again, according to TMZ.

‘Cardi B wouldn’t change a damn thing about her decision to attack Nicki Minaj, in fact, she’d even chuck her shoe again in that same situation,’ a source told the site.

After the fight, Cardi B posted on Instagram to accuse Minaj of ‘talking s**t’ about her parenting skills.

She wrote: ‘I’ve let a lot of sh*t slide. I let you sneak diss me. I let you lie on me. I let you attempt to stop my bags, f**k up the way I eat!

‘You’ve threatened other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you’ll stop f**king with them! I let you talk big s**t about me.

‘I addressed you once in person, I addressed you a second time in person and every time you copped a plea!!

But when you mention my child, you choose to like comments about me as a mother, make comments about my abilities to take care of my daughter is when all bets are f***ing off!

‘I’ve worked too hard and come too far to let anybody f**k with my success!!! B*****s talk all that s**t in they raps but in real life they p**sy. This s**t really is for entertainment.’ [sic]

Addressing the accusation on her Queen Radio show, Minaj – real name Onika Tanya — said she would ‘never talk about anyone’s child or parenting’ — which Cardi reportedly branded ‘a baldfaced lie’.

‘I would never talk about anyone’s child’s or parenting, I don’t give a s**t. It’s so crazy to me that people always need to make Onika the bad guy. if you’re right in whatever you’re doing, you don’t ever have to make someone into the bad guy,’ Nicki said.

‘You know I didn’t say or never did talk about anyone’s child… I am not a clown, that’s clown s**t. The other thing that is clown s**t is telling the world that they did s**t because you look dumb.’

She added that Cardi will ‘die’ if she keeps trying to fight people.

‘You put your hands on certain people you gonna die. PERIOD. And y’all sitting here making this s*** a joke? I’m not the b***es in the strip club and I’m not a b*** on a reality show. My money is very f***ing long,’ she vented.
