For about a year, a lot of people speculated that there was friction between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. However, the feud was only confirmed at the beginning on September when things popped off after the two got into a physical altercation. Shortly after, Cardi B addressed her issues with Nicki in an Instagram post where she accused the “Barbie Dreamz” rapper of “stopping her bag.” Now, Nicki Minaj is capitalizing off of the phrase with her latest merch line.
Nicki Minaj simultaneously threw shade while capitalizing off of her feud with Cardi B. Nicki revealed her new “Nicki Stopped My Bag” merchandise line earlier today. The merch line includes pink and black bags with the phrase on it, as well as t-shirts and a jacket. While it’s incredibly petty, it’s hard to deny that it was a brilliant move on Nicki’s part, especially since it turned into a meme right after Cardi released her statement.
During last month’s Harper’s Bazaar Icon party, Cardi B allegedly hurled a shoe at Nicki Minaj, although she missed. Cardi then went to Instagram to formally address her feud with Nicki Minaj and air out all the issues she has with her.
“I’ve let a lot of shit slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, fuck up the way I eat!” She wrote, “You’ve threaten[ed] other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you’ll stop fuckin with them!!”
