On Thursday (July 11), Cardi B responded to Jermaine Dupri’s controversial comments about female rappers by defending her own lyrical content and sharing her support for other female MCs including Tierra Whack, Kamaiyah, Rapsody, and Chika.
After the comments sparked a debate about women in hip-hop, Nicki was brought into the conversation in a since-deleted post by one Twitter user simply identified as @WarrenLamar12.
I’m so here for Cardi supporting these women in the industry.
Y’all love to act like the only female MCs are the ones taking off they clothes.
There is a diversity of artists out there.
You just have to be willing to find them and then support them!
Nicki saw the tweet and fired back tweeting;
Clown tingz. Keep my dick out y’all mouth.

Nicki even pointed out that her critic was once a fan after she pulled out the fan’s alleged tweet from 2014, which read;
They always just pull some s**t out they hats just so they can have someone to go up against my girl Nicki.
Her comments follow Jermaine Dupri’s remarks in a recent interview about today’s female rap stars who he feels rap about almost the same thing. He said;
I feel they’re all rapping about the same things.
I don’t think they’re showing us who’s the best rapper.
I think they’re trying to show–for me, it’s like strippers rapping.
At some point, somebody’s going to have to break out of that mold and just show us–talk about other things, just rap about other things besides that.
