Cardi B is, at least for now, quitting Instagram — but not before she gets in the last word.
Following criticism that she was undeserving of her best rap album Grammy win and some social media drama where she was pinned against her nemesis Nicki Minaj by the BET Network, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper got heated in an expletive-filled rant on her Instagram.
The video, which was captured by a fan account, has since been deleted and was followed by Cardi, 26, deactivating her Instagram entirely.
“It’s not my style for people to put other people down to uplift somebody else,” she began in the clip, referencing the dig BET made at Nicki, which said she was “being dragged by her lacefront” after Cardi’s Grammy win.
“That’s not my style and that’s not what I’m with,” Cardi said, adding, “I don’t support that.”
“However, I’ve been taking a lot of s— today. I’m seeing a lot of bulls— today and I saw a lot of s— last night, and I’m sick of this s—. I work hard for my motherf— album,” she angrily stated.

The “I Like It” rapper continued her rant by reflecting on the reactions from last year’s Grammys results. Cardi earned two nominations in best rap performance and best rap song for her track “Bodak Yellow” but did not win for either one.
“I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow’ and everybody was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed,’” she recalled. “Now this year’s a f— problem?! My album went two-time platinum, my n—, and every chart that there was, my album was always Top 10. Number one album, as well.”
Defending this year’s win, Cardi noted how she “worked her ass off” and spent endless hours in the studio, despite being pregnant with her daughter Kulture Kiari, now 7 months.
“I locked myself in the studio for three months, my n—. Didn’t go to sleep in my bed sometimes for four days straight — pregnant!” she explained. “While everybody was harassing me like, ‘You’re not gonna do it, we know you pregnant, your career’s over…’”
After the passionate video was posted — and subsequently deleted — Cardi then shared another cleaner reflection on her Instagram about all the work that went into making Invasion of Privacy, which was captured by PEOPLE before she deleted her account on Monday.
“Slept in the studio on leather sofas for 3 months straight, migraines, in Atlanta in Miami away from my family. I have 4 songs that couldn’t make the album cause my nose was so stuffy bro I was huffy puffy,” Cardi captioned a congratulatory post from Chance the Rapper.
“This is overly deserved, the album was front-to-back hits. It would be inconceivable no to honor u last night,” Chance, 25, who was featured on the project, wrote.
“I had @offsetyrn and @brooklyn.johnny reaching out to the world for a verse on top of that I was depress [sic] cause everybody was suspecting I was pregnant and I constantly kept reading Cardi you ‘STUPID,’ ‘YOU RUINED YOUR CAREER,’ ‘WHY WOULD YOU HAVE A BABY AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR CAREER,’” Cardi continued tagging her husband Offset.
“My album went #1 and spend [sic] 21 weeks straight on billboard top ten! Every song is gold or platinum or higher. I listen to my album and I cry because I know the hell I went thruu doing the album is always a bittersweet memory.”
“THANK YOU EVERYONE THAT SUPPORTED ME AND LISTEN. I’m thankful and grateful and again thank you to all the artist that gave me a feature,” Cardi added.
While Cardi was busy defending her success — and not at the cost of others — Nicki was dropping out of two scheduled BET events after the network appeared to insult her on social media on Sunday night during the 2019 Grammy Awards.
BET referenced Nicki while congratulating Cardi for her win for best rap album — the first time in history it’s ever been done by a solo female — in a post that read, “Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj is being dragged by her lacefront.”
Minaj, 36, took offense to the post, prompting her to announce on Monday that she had decided to scrap her appearance at BET Experience and BET Awards later this summer, which Cardi will also be participating in.
“Young Money will no longer be apart of the BET Experience or award show,” she tweeted with hearts and a praying hand emoji. “Summer Tour dates dropping soon.”
The network has since apologized for the offending post.
“BET loves Nicki Minaj. We have supported her from the very beginning of her career and will continue to do so moving forward,” representatives for the network told PEOPLE in a statement. “Nicki has paved the way for so many performers and has solidified her place as one of the most powerful figures in the music industry. Unfortunately, the respect we have for Nicki was violated by this post that should never have been written.”
“The post does not reflect how we feel about Nicki. And further does not reflect our company values,” they continued. “We deeply apologize for the hurt, disappointment and confusion that this post has caused. We are committed to doing everything we can to address the situation… We understand Nicki’s position and look forward to continuing our dialogue with her. Finally, we apologize to all of her fans. This should have never happened.”
Popular Actress On The Run After Borrowing Huge Money
Information KUBILIVE is picking up has it that a popular Ghanaian actress(name withheld) is currently on the run for borrowing a huge sum of money from another person a long period.
According to the source, the creditor has been chasing the said actress since 2016 but all efforts to retrieve the money have proved futile.
And the creditor who couldn’t bear it any longer decided to sue the said actress who borrowed the money to live a lavish lifestyle on social media.
This was revealed by the founder of Ghanacelebrities.com Chris Vincent who has promised to drop more revelation this weekend to shame the said actress who claims to be staying in Trassaco.
He posted: “A Ghanaian actress is on the run after borrowing huge monies from another person.
Since 2016, the creditor has been chasing her without any success so she sued her and the court has awarded judgement against the actress.
These our actresses and big things—I mean bigsm but nothing at the bank.
The house you see with the notice of the suit plastered on is where that actress lives. On social media, she will be telling us she lives at Trassaco, probably.
I have all the court documents and I will be releasing them in a GC exclusive publication this weekend—right after the married Ghanaian footballer who has allegedly had a child with a certain young Ghanaian woman story.
Tag a friend to let him or her know that we have started the weekend!”
