The viral sensation-turned-rapper took heat from Nicki Minaj’s devoted fan base after the teenager mentioned Nicki’s name while speaking about the use of writers in the music industry.
“Y’all just don’t understand how this industry works,” Bhabie said on Instagram Live. “And it’s so sad. It’s so upsetting because people put a lot of work into getting things done and then y’all hear, ‘Oh, she didn’t write that hook? Oh, well fuck her.’ What? Y’all know most of the biggest names — Drake, Nicki — all them people get shit written for them too. Wayne. Like, all types of people get shit written.
“Whether they actually gonna use it or not, shit still gets written. Even sometimes in sessions, artists will talk to they friends and be like, ‘Aye, should I say this?’ or ‘Aye, you think this right?’ And one of they homies will be like, ‘Aye, nah, you should say this.’ That’s how shit gets done! Sometimes, it’s a team effort.”
Bhabie’s mention of Nicki didn’t sit well with the Barbz, who went on the attack via social media. In response, the “Cash Me Ousside” girl jumped back on Instagram Live to clarify her words and slam Nicki’s fans for being irrational.
“I forgot that Nicki’s fandom, majority of them are brainwashed and braindead and are just so in love with her that they believe anything she says or whatever,” Bhabie said. “Not once did I ever say that Nicki doesn’t write all of her music or that Cardi doesn’t write all of her music or that City Girls or Lil Wayne or any of them people that I brought up earlier. I did not say they do not write all of their music. What I said was hooks are given to them, verses are given to them sometimes. And that’s it.
“For y’all bringing up the videos of Nicki saying that she wrote ‘Good Form’ and ‘Chun-Li’ and all that, I know Nicki writes some of her stuff. I never not once did I say, ‘Nicki doesn’t write all of her stuff.’ Y’all are just so stupid that y’all take shit and run with it.”
She concluded, “Y’all just need to understand that it’s the truth and that’s how shit goes. Shit gets given to people sometimes.”
