"When I did "Be Careful" people was talking mad s- in the beginning like 'What the f- is this?' 'This is not what I was expecting, '" Cardi said. "So don't blame that on us when y'all not the ones who are supporting them".

While praising Da Brat in his recent People Now appearance, Dupri also slammed Cardi, Nicki Minaj and Meghan Thee Stallion.

Naturally, Cardi B, who is both a great rapper and a former stripper, did not take kindly to this. "Who's gonna be the rapper?"

"After all the calls, DMs, angry tweets and other messages saying 'I am a major gatekeeper in the hip hop world, why don't I invest in a female who is out here hustling and making a name for herself?'" he wrote. "The only reason why I can't say is because I feel they're all rapping about the same things", he explained. Mumble rap is ruining hip-hop and back in the day, women never used sex appeal to sell records - except for, you know, Salt-N-Pepa, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, Trina, Eve, and a slew of other women who could rap well and look good at the same time. "And now that Jermaine Dupri brung it up, now I'm gonna say something about it", she began.

Cardi named rappers Rapsody, Tierra Whack, Oranicuhh and Kamaiyah, and noted them as female rappers who don't get support.

Tottenham look to hijack Arsenal's deal for William Saliba
Saliba , a France Under-20 worldwide , joined Saint-Etienne in 2016 and is one of the game's most highly-rated young centre-backs. The two clubs are scheduled to hold a meeting on Saturday as Tottenham look to spoil Arsenal's plans to land the young talent.

Before ending the one minute clip she mentioned: "there's a lot of female rappers that be rapping their a** off and don't rap about their pussy and don't be talking about getting down and dirty and y'all don't be supporting them".

She added, "I feel we need to put these girls in more magazines and blogs". But Cardi has a way of breaking down complex ideas and restating them in such a simple, impactful way that it becomes impossible to just skip over what she says. "These girls can rap they asses off". Many people on Twitter noted the plethora of men in the rap industry who constantly rap about money, sex and drugs. Jermaine Dupri, must not listen to music outside of what's played on the radio, because women like #Rapsody #TierraWhack and #ArmaniiDay would beg to differ. For instance, during a 2006 Vibe interview when he suggested Beyoncé's career wouldn't reach the same level of popularity as his then-girlfriend Janet Jackson.
