Migos released “MotorSport,” the first single off their upcoming album Culture II, in late October. It didn’t take long for people to speculate whether the song’s featured artists, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, were taking shots at one another in their respective verses. A few days later, Nicki added fuel to the fire by claiming the song initially consisted of just her and Quavo, and she approved the decision to put Cardi on the track.
Migos provided some behind-the-scenes footage from their “MotorSport” music video recently, and Nicki was nowhere to be found. Based on the final version, they were holding out for her appearance.
When asked on The Norte Show on Capital Xtra about her relationship with Nicki, Cardi kept it quite vague. “I spoke to her before, I saw her in person before,” she responded. “We spoke about things. I don’t like getting into detail.” The Bronx native also revealed that Nicki’s verse was different when she first heard the track. “When I heard the track, her verse wasn’t finished. It was not the verse that is on right now,” she revealed. “Quavo told me to get on the song, and I just felt it was a perfect opportunity for me to be on a track that’s big like them.”
