Cardi B has fired back after Nicki Minaj spoke in detail Monday about their confrontation at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONs party during New York Fashion Week last month.
‘You lie so much you can’t even keep up with your f**king lies.’ the I Like It singer, 26, said in an Instagram clip responding to Minaj’s claims on her Beats 1 radio show Queen Radio Monday that her pal Rah Ali unleashed a brutal assault on Cardi.
The Bodak Yellow artist, whose full name is Belcalis Almanzar, said: ‘First you say … your cameraman got the footage but … now you want to pay someone $100,000 if they give you the footage?’

Retort: Cardi B, 26, has fired back after Nicki Minaj spoke in detail Monday about their confrontation at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONs party during New York Fashion Week last month
In a series of 10 clips, Cardi reviled Nicki over a series of disagreements, most notably the fashion week fiasco.
‘How you say that I was the wild animal, that I attacked you, that you was mortified, that you was humiliated, playing the victim but now you the gangsta?’ asked Cardi, who suggested that Nicki ‘pick a side’ in how she presents her account of the clash.
Cardi shot down’s Nicki’s assertion that she was professionally reliant on the practice of payola – paying radio stations to play your music – denying it, and bringing up the possibility of a defamation of character lawsuit over the bold allegations.
‘Since you want to talk about suing,’ she said, ‘maybe I should sue you for defamation of character since you want to claim that I’m using something illegal called Payola for being so f***ing successful.’

Cardi also brought receipts, in the form of screengrabs from her call log in which she tried to contact Minaj, as well as the leaking of her phone number – which she ties to Nicki’s associates via the timeline of events.
‘Let’s talk about the leaked numbers s***!’ she said. ‘Tell me if this don’t make sense: How come my phone number got leaked one hour after the altercation at the Harper’s Bazaar party?’
In response to Nicki’s remarks about burying the hatchet, Cardi said she was ‘tired of talking about’ their feud also, and said that Minaj knows how to get a hold of her if she’s serious about it.
‘If you really want to talk about it, you know where to link me, we could always link up,’ she said. ‘We can talk about it or we can fight it out. I’m with whatever. But I’m sick and tired of that back and forth s***.
‘I’m not doing it – I’m in a good space right now – let me know what’s up.’

Cardi said that Nicki should ‘stop focusing on other people’ and work on herself and her material, as she’s ‘out here f***ing up [her] legacy, looking like a f***ing hater.’
On her show Monday, Nicki, 35, said Ali, who delivered ‘the hardest punches you’ve ever heard in your life’ about ‘eight [to] 10’ times to Cardi’s head in the September 7 clash.
Not only that, but Nicki said that video evidence backed up her claims in regards to the brouhaha in the Big Apple – and she offered to pay $100,000 for someone to come forward with the footage.
Speaking of Rah Ali, Nicki said that ‘Rah really beat Cardi’s a** bad’ to the point that she was upset with Ali – who appeared with Cardi, 26, on Love & Hip Hop: New York on VH1 – for the display of aggression against her professional rival.
‘The punches was so hard in your head, I was like mad at Rah … but Rah didn’t like her attitude, the way she came at me. Rah said it looked like she was going to put her hand on me.’

The Anaconda singer delved into other moving parts of the confrontation between the hip-hop superstars.
‘There’s so many things I can say but I don’t,’ Nicki said. ‘I love where I am in my life. I was fine with leaving everything good. We can just be happy. There’s nothing that really makes me not like you like that, you know what I’m saying?’
Nicki also opened up about video footage supporting her claim.
‘There is no way I can lie about this,’ she said, ‘because there is surveillance footage from the building where the assault took place.’
She vowed to give ‘anyone that [wants] to put up the surveillance footage’ $100,000.
The Queens, New York native, whose full name is Onika Tanya Maraj, continued: ‘I’m perfectly fine with never talking about this again – and me never bringing you up again and you never bringing me up again. I hear the shots you taking, but I’m a rapper, remember that.’

The Barbie Tingz artist on her program also said that Cardi B had tried to make her look bad via allegations that she had leaked her number made by Cardi’s sister, Hennessy Carolina.
In an Instagram post Hennessy subsequently deleted, she wrote, ‘Ya asking why I’m beefing with a fan base but ya not asking why someone with so much influence would use their influence to manipulate their fans to spread so much negativity and hate.’
On her show Monday, Nicki said, ‘You have your sister calling me a crackhead and leak numbers? You can’t control your sister, but you want me to control millions of fans?
‘I’ve never leaked a number in my life and y’all continue to lie on me to make me look like a bad person … I didn’t leak your number – stop lying on me.’
Nicki had previously opened up about the rivalry on her program days after the exchange on September 10, when she said the entire incident was was ‘humiliating.’
