Cardi B hits back after Kanye West claims she was 'planted to replace Nicki  Minaj' - Mirror Online


controversial rapper took aim at the I Like It hitmaker while filming an unreleased documentary, and a clip of the rapper’s rant began circulating on X, formerly known as Twitter. In the footage, Kanye made a series of accusations aimed at the mum-of-two, and alleged she was planted by the historical secret society. “Cardi B is a plant by the Illuminati. She don’t write her raps, she’s just there to sound as ignorant as possible… You know, she has literally replaced Nicki Minaj purposefully,” he fumed.

“They put her there, and now she doesn’t know what to do, she has no idea what the f**k is going on. She thinks it’s just a blessing from the universe. It ain’t no blessing from the f**king universe,” the 46-year-old added. Responding to the footage leaked by HNHH, Cardi simply reposted a clip from an interview last year, in which the Stronger rapper heaped praise on the 30-year-old star after they worked together. “My cousins were saying ‘come by here’ yesterday but I was finishing that verse for your girl, you know what I mean. Like I always believed in her,” he told Hollywood Unlocked at the time.

However, her followers sparked a furious debate in the comments, with many siding with the polarising rapper. “This means nothing he still said u a plant you think you ate,” one fumed. “Oh she’s in denial,” another added. “What’s more believable? A behind the doors conversation or an interview with ur friend who just coerced him to do a collab with u?” one follower asked, while another claimed: “This proves nothing sweetie… you’re still a fraud.”

Kanye and Cardi collaborated on her hit Hot S**t in July last year, and in an interview with Zane Lowe, she confirmed his rap verse was about the drama between him, ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her then-boyfriend Pete Davidson. “Kanye gave me this verse a couple of months ago when he was just all over the media, because of all of the things that were going on,” she explained.

“I like how his verse, it’s personal, but it’s not that personal. I’m so happy that he gave me this verse. And I had a lot of conversations with Kanye West. I learned so much about him and he’s such an amazing, sweet person. I’ve been feeling like, I wish a lot of people have conversations with him so they could just see the real … the him,” Cardi stated. The Bodak Yellow hitmaker was previously accused of starting a row with Kanye’s ex-wife Kim, after she claimed the Kardashians had given her a “list of contacts” to call after she suffered a botched nose job.
