I was asked this very question that “Nicki Minaj and Cardi B who is a better rapper?. I didn’t answer, but the truth is that my answer would have been Nicki Minaj.
While researching and reading opinions from many Music lovers online. I got two interesting answers with fact going for both artistes and you can read them beneath. (NOTE: With more of the vote online, Nicki Minaj won)
Don’t ever try to compare The Queen with someone like Cardi. It’s like you’re comparing Beyonce with Camila Cabello. Nicki has been in the industry since the beginning and hardwork always wins. She has been working hard for her success unlike Cardi. Cardi pays for her songs to remain in the top. She uses a ghost writer whereas Nicki writes her OWN raps. Recently on a show, Nicki was told to rap and she thought of a new verse within 2 seconds. Cardi could never. It’s how the generation has become. HOPPING ON THE BANDWAGON. Cardi is temporary whereas NICKI IS PERMANENT. Just because the Nicki hate train goes on , more people join it without knowing the truth. She has been in the rap game since years and her influence will never vanish. She has taught people that hard work always wins. The Queen will continue reigning. For people saying that she writes about her pussy , you all must have never heard her songs like Freedom, the crying game, all things go etc. Talent always wins. Nicki has always respected Cardi but Cardi instead has no decency to respect her. All she does is make Nicki appear bad and throw a fucking shoe at her. Nicki has respect for everyone. She is a lyrical queen and writes bops.
Cardi B has stolen lines and music from other artist. I can’t imagine Nicki Minaj having any respect for Cardi. People love Cardi for her personality and the industry decided to invest in that, so she is being blown up to look good for everyone that is watching, but she is definitely not on the same scale of artistry as Nicki Minaj.
I followed Cardi on social media in the beginning but now I am tired of listening to her foul mouth. She is making millions now, yet she can’t keep her street slang and strip club lingo out of her mouth. I am not sensitive to foul language, it’s just sort of annoying to constantly hear it every time she’s trying to tell a story.
Also, I stopped following her because just as Nicki Minaj knows Cardi is being used — I know it and see it as well. The awards and the accolades were given to her as part of the industries investment plan. It makes me angry that they would even consider replacing Queen Nicki with a one hit wonder.
Cardi B is the better rapper. Her lines have been used to express personal struggles and problems in ways Niki Minaj will never reach. Cardi in her latest album (Invasion of Privacy) in her song Be Careful she talks about loving a man and how she can leave you and you’ll regret. As soon as that song came out Niki Also released a song.
It may be good, but has no value like Cardi’s
Niki’s song was Chun-Li and she talks about other women trying to be her. In that song she talks about being the best, but Cardi talks about love and something greater than herself.
This may be rap, but rap can tell stories Hip-hop simply cannot.
To all the fans of Niki, please dont hate. She is a great rapper, but I see Cardi taking the rap world by storm. Even though Niki has been there for ages and Cardi just blew up. Cardi is the ultimate rapper in the female category.
Not only that Cardi is a funny and loving person.
Cardi does make weird noises, but they are all to make people laugh which gives her a ver unique personality. She is also very loving and accepting of her younger queer sister Hennesey and always looks after her on social media .
In all, she always strives to be the best entertainer she can be without thinking of other entertainers in her industry. For example Coachella, while pregnant she gave the audience a real performance even if it was in the day.
