Recently, Lil Yachty released a song featuring Cardi B and Offset (‘Who Want’s The Smoke?’), in which Cardi B claims to be the “King of New York”. This comment was met with a lot of backlash from people, including Funk Flex who said:
“Hahaha! A below average rapper that doesn’t write could never be King or Queen of NY! #JustMyOpinion BIGGIE/JAYZ/NAS BUILT THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THAT TITLE!”
In response to this Cardi took it to Instagram to make a video where she stated “What is y’all niggas mad about? Did I say I was the best rapper from New York? No. Does this shit gotta do with rapping? No. I know street niggas and street bitches that feel like they the king and queen of New York. Why can’t I feel like I’m a king of New York? Every single time I go to my city people cheer me on, people show me so much love, people show me so much support and it has nothing to do with this rapping.”
She then made another video claiming herself as the emperor and began addressing an alleged racoon problem in the country.
Whether, Cardi B is a queen/king of rap, she definitely has made a name for herself in the city.
