The Cardi B And Nicki Minaj Beef Has Gotten Too Dangerous

The Cardi B And Nicki Minaj Beef Has Gotten Too Dangerous

Beefs should stay outside and not in the building.


So I've known for a majority of my life that in rap music that there can a number one is because one, the public wants to put artists against each other for entertainment, and two, no one can stay at the top forever. We all grew up on Nicki Minaj the last ten years and have grown to be fans of Cardi B with her music. However, these two artists have been at each other's throats on social media and in the press for the last year and things have really come to a head in the last week alone.

Last weekend, the two rappers attended an after party during New York Fashion Week on September 7th and things turned ugly. Cardi B and Nicki Minaj were in the lobby when they come in contact with each other. Nicki allegedly stepped on Cardi's train of her dress and said a sly comment about Cardi's two-month-old daughter, Kulture, and that is what set Cardi off to lunge at her which led to her being knocked in the forehead and held back by security. She then proceeded to throw both her shoes at Nicki but missed her. She was then escorted out of the party, walking barefoot with a bump on her head.

Now flash forward to three days later, Nicki Minaj goes on her radio show, Queen Radio, Monday afternoon to tell her side of the story and it quickly turned into a dragging of Cardi B regarding her past and current behavior on social media and in public. She even went as far as to accuse her of using the cheating method of Payola, paying radio stations time radio play. She even went as far as to threaten Cardi B if she keeps "exposing" Nicki's past and current actions. Now we have seen the blows, both physical and verbal, and we're all asking the same question?

Has it gone too far and will it ever end?


Now if you're a 90a's kid or grew up in the era, the most notable beef in hip-hop was between Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G back in the day. It had escalated to the point where you had the east and west coast at war with each other. I remember one of my friend's uncle talking about it all happening while he lived in Atlanta. He said this.

"It was crazy because they would go back and forth with each other in diss records and would boost about coming to head with each other if either of them came to LA or New York. But when Tupac died, it was a hit to a a lot of people to the heart and when Biggie was taken out, it was the official end of the beef but it cost two young artists their lives."

We don't want this to happen again. These are two musicians who are talented and have made an impacted in music and in their community. But they are letting their fan bases and the media in their ears telling them things to instigate them to the point where they are looking like complete fools in the industry. These women are examples of other artists coming up in the industry. o one wants another rap beef the ends in death. Keep the beef off the streets and keep the peace. And hopefully, one day, if it ever happens, these two can make a dope record that will climb up the charts and get them a Grammy.

Calling Out Everyday Injustice And Discrimination Doesn't Make Us 'Too Sensitive'

It's important to remember that in the fight for social justice we cannot normalize casual racism for the sake of friends and we cannot normalize misogyny and sexual misconduct for the sake of the artists we admire.


Lately, any glimpse of the news is unsettling: a government shutdown, sexual abuse accusations against R. Kelly, debates over border control and tax cuts that benefit the wealthy. In our society, every newest scandal or political blunder is a headline, and if you spend too much time reading up on current news it's almost impossible to not feel that our country is spiraling into a collapse of some kind. On both sides of the political and belief spectrum, many take to social media to express their viewpoints on each new situation. Some post cries of outrage and demand that their voices be heard and that justice be served. Others sneer that we have developed into a hypersensitive culture that can't handle a joke. Do we really need to toughen up, or are people just uncomfortable that blatantly discriminatory and oppressive comments are no longer tolerated?

People who tend to hold more conservative viewpoints also tend to say the same things. Casually dropped "N" words, sexist jokes, and homophobic comments are alarmingly prevalent in circles of straight, white friend groups, especially when men are involved. Still, most of these people would not consider themselves hateful, and are always quick to defend themselves whether its by saying "no one who uses the 'F' word is actually talking about gay people" or "it makes me more uncomfortable to say 'N' word so I just say the real word" or "chill out it's not that deep." These are only a small selection of the ignorant defensives I've heard when I've challenged a poor "joke." Our society has progressed and given many powerless victims a voice, but a large number of people who don't have a concept of what oppression actually still think that to end the racist, sexist, homophobic dialogue we have casually used for so long is a step too far.

Sometimes it is hard to know where to draw the line, especially when it seems that every time I look at my phone another beloved artist, actor, writer, or prominent figure is accused of something horrible. Still, it is important to remember that in the fight for social justice we cannot normalize casual racism for the sake of friends and we cannot normalize misogyny and sexual misconduct for the sake of the artists we admire.

Comedians Aziz Ansari and Louis C.K. were both outed by the #MeToo movement for misconduct of varying degrees. While Louis C.K. faced public disgrace for masturbating in front of multiple women without being asked to, Aziz was criticized by a past date for being too forceful and pressuring her to have sex. In the case of Aziz, many may argue that the Me Too Movement has gone too far, but Aziz was a self-proclaimed feminist who performed many skits that addressed the creepiness of men, so his actions seem hypocritical and disappointing. After his fall from fame, his return to the spotlight attacked those he considered to be "overly woke" and he did not seem sorry, only persecuted. Similarly, Louis C.K., a man who has expressed himself to be anti-Trump in the past and who has always portrayed himself as self-aware, did nothing but trash "sensitive" liberals after he was exposed.

Our society is not becoming too sensitive and we do not need to grow a thicker skin. For the first time, those with some kind of power are being called out for the ways they mishandle it, and they don't like it. The only way to continue to level the playing field and empower victims is to continue the conversation on these previously normalized issues and to hold people accountable when they cross the line. However, in situations like Aziz's we can ask people to be self-aware and to apologize in a meaningful way, and then accept and understand that anyone can grow or change. The way to invoke change is not the condemnation of every person who makes a mistake, but it is also not okay to write people off as overly sensitive. Education, conversation, and empowering those who have been harmed will pave the road to a better society because it doesn't stop here.
