Cardi B has been at the center of many rumors and controversies over the past few months, and now she’s threatening to release information that she says will set the internet ablaze.
The Bronx rap starlet took to Instagram Live on Monday (October 2) and issued a stern warning to her “haters,” saying she will unleash devastating “receipts” if they keep messing with her.
“I will fucking bring this internet into fucking shambles, bitch,” Cardi said. “I been trying not to disappoint my fans because I’ve been trying to be Cardi B, the professional. But Belcalis [her real name], the demon, it be really close to come out. And I don’t want that because I don’t want to disappoint my fans.
“I’ma just say this: people love Cinderella ’til Cinderella get a glass house. To my haters and to y’all muthafuckas that want to see mess, leave me the fuck alone. Because I come with receipts. I come with receipts, years-old receipts.”
She continued: “I got receipts on all you n-ggas and all you bitches. And I will fucking bring this internet into fucking shambles, bitch […] It will be crazy. So let me keep it cute. I have matured. Keep me there. ‘Cause this shit will go down, bitch. I will land a muthafucking helly in this bitch. Facts.
“And I won’t even just say it out my mouth. I literally got real receipts with dates. So leave me because y’all not going to be ready for that. Y’all not going to be ready for nothing. Let me mind my business. Let me keep working. Let me be a mom. Let me keep putting music out.”
Although Cardi didn’t name any names in her rant, it comes shortly after a Kanye West documentary from 2018 leaked, in which he claimed she’s an Illuminati-backed industry plant whose purpose is to “replace” Nicki Minaj.
“These Illuminati,” Ye says in the film while on a phone call. “That’s why fucking Cardi B was over there. Cardi B is a plant by the Illuminati. She don’t write her raps. She’s just there to sound as ignorant as possible, and then make songs like fuck ’em and then get some money.
“She has literally replaced Nicki Minaj purposely, that they put her there. And now she doesn’t know what to do and she’s just a fucking — she has no idea what the fuck is going on. She thinks it’s just a blessing from the universe. Ain’t no blessing from the fucking universe.”
Cardi seemingly responded to Kanye’s comments shortly after the leak by tweeting out a clip from his 2022 interview with Hollywood Unlocked‘s Jason Lee, in which he spoke highly of her.
“My cousins was saying come by here yesterday but I was finishing that verse for your girl,” he said, referring to Cardi. “I always believed in her since she was on the show, period.”
The Bronx native captioned the video with a simple love heart emoji, indicating it’s all love between her and Ye.
Prior to this, Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty was placed on house arrest for threatening Offset on social media, prompting Cardi to defend her husband.
Court reporter Meghan Cuniff pointed out on X last month that Petty’s house arrest order didn’t mention Offset or Cardi, and that the “probation officer and judge did not need an outside report/complaint to act on” his threats.
After the blogger Ken Barbie quote-tweeted Cuniff’s post and argued Petty put himself in trouble for making his threats “on Instagram and tag[ging] every blog in it,” Cardi replied: “EXACTLY KEEP ME AND MY MANS OUT YALL FUCKIN MOUTH.”
