Rapper Cardi B has touched on how fellow female musicians in the music industry should unite saying there’s no need to down talk other female artists.
Cardi, who was talking about her collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion on the ‘WAP’ song in an interview with Billboard after she was named ‘Woman Of The Year’ stated;
When female artists are rising, you don’t have to put one down because the others are rising. Every single time a female rapper comes out, people wanna start fake beef.”
She says people creates these fake ‘beefs’ because the music industry is ‘male dominant’ and most of them are not used to ‘female’ winning.
Maybe because they don’t see me [with other women] as often as people want to. The thing is, I’m shy — and really shy to reach out to male artists, to be honest with you. That’s why a lot of collabs that I want, I haven’t gotten yet because I’m scared to reach out. I always get a little star-struck. I be thinking I’m corny, even though I’m funny.”
Cardi then went on to talk about whether she feels expectations are still higher for women in the music industry saying;
I don’t want to be like, ‘Oh, female artists, we have it hard’. But we do fucking be having it mad hard. I could be bumping to one bitch’s music, and the next day, people are telling you, ‘Oh, this girl is better than Cardi. She’s gonna end Cardi.’ I hate that y’all do that. Why do you want me to argue and not like this girl?”
