Cardi B's rise to super-stardom is coming at the same time that Nicki Minaj's star is fading. Some Nicki fans believe that powerful people have been working behind the scenes to SABOTAGE Nicki's career - while propping up Cardi B.
According to Nicki's fans, Atlantic records has been paying influencers in the media to ARTIFICALLY support Cardi B and her music. At the same time, the label has allefedly been paying the same influencers to say BAD things about Nicki and her projects.
According to Nicki fans, Atlantic has spent MILLIONS trying to sabotage Nicki Minaj;s career.
Up until yesterday, Nicki fans were operating under a "theory" with no actual PROOF that Atlantic Records was doing anything against Nicki. But all that changed.
A fan page leaked a secret DIRECT MESSAGE from Cardi - where she ADMITS that Atlantic Records had a plan to DESTROY Nicki Minaj. Look:
Cardi wasn't willing to admit that there was a machine working against Nicki before because, earlier this year Cardi said that, "I feel like people just want that drama because it's entertaining," she said in a Complex, while Nicki addressed all the "beef" rumors in a Twitter rant, saying that men in the hip-hop community only do this to female rappers and urged everyone to let it go. But Nicki, Cardi and the world know that won't actually happen.
Nicki can't seem to catch a break lately. Forbes recently came out with a SCATHING article titled: 'Nicki Minaj's 'Queen' Rollout Reeks Of Desperation And Hypocrisy'
The article read:
Nicki Minaj needs a big win right now. The Young Money rapper is just two-and-a-half weeks out from the release of her fourth studio album, Queen, and she’s clearly feeling the pressure of entering a rap landscape that looks drastically different than when she dropped her last album, The Pinkprint, in 2014. For one, Minaj is no longer the industry’s token female rapper: She now has to contend with the younger, more vibrant and pop-savvy Cardi B, who’s already scored two Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits off her debut album, Invasion of Privacy.
Much of the genre now belongs to younger artists whose aggressive, minimalist punk-rap hybrid sounds totally at odds with Minaj’s pop-rap crossover bids.
