Female rapper Cardi B seems like she's always beefing with someone. Now she's beefing with fellow female rappers Iggy Azalea and Cuban Doll.

While doing an interview for an Oct. 21 episode of Tidal's Rap Radar Podcast, Bardi suggested that her personal success led to labels aiming to sign more rising female stars in hip-hop.

"I feel like after me it's easier for a lot of female rappers," she said in the interview. "Before me, there was no female rapper that was signed to a label. Well, you know, the ones that had been established. Nobody was signing them. Now, everybody's just signing them, if you can rap and you got a couple of followers."

THEN Cardi took to social media saying that she's the first female rapper EVER to open the door for other female rappers. The remark was a direct shot at all the other female rappers - including Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Remy Ma, and more.

So far Nicki, Remy and Kim have been silent on Cardi's claim. But female rappers Cuban Doll and Iggy Azalea took to Twitter yesterday to push back against Cardi.

Cuban Doll first sarcastically posted the below meme, suggesting that many female rappers opened the doors for other women:


Well Cardi immediately responded to Cuban's shady Tweet, and posted the following:


Iggy then responded to Cardi's tweet, by liking the below tweet:


In a series of other tweets connected to the misunderstanding, Cardi B called out fans who claimed the rapper was not able to take credit for restoring hip-hop's faith in women. Cardi B continued to double-down against naysayers by posing questions about the way hip-hop was marketing women before her star rose and how things have since changed.
