Cardi B Defends Lil' Kim Against Bullying And Disrespect

The Bronx native isn’t here for the hate.

Cardi B isn’t here for the online bullying of the “real f***ing legend” Kimberly Denise Jones, better known by her stage name, Lil’ Kim.

It appears that many critics on social media aren’t taken by the Brooklyn native’s latest musical efforts, including a record she released earlier this month called “Big Santa Papi,” as part of Nick Cannon’s holiday film Miracles Across 125th Street. Earlier this year, it was revealed that Cannon would be assisting the veteran rapper in a more managerial sense for the next chapter of her career.

However, on Tuesday evening (Dec. 21), the “WAP” emcee found herself defending Kim’s career after responding to a Twitter post calling out the “weird hate bandwagon” that had recently emerged against the rap icon.

“I’m tired of it and [it’s] heartbreaking…” Cardi wrote. “She's so sweet, supportive and a REAL F***IN LEGEND ..I remember when I used to beef with b*****s and I used to put on my MySpace her song F*** YOU! I think it's gotta be these 2000’s born kids on this app that don’t know about s**t!

However, not everyone was buying Cardi’s quick show of solidarity and some even questioned why she hasn’t collaborated with the fellow New York artist yet, to which the “Bodak Yellow” Grammy-winning artists  fired back with, “I am a woman with feelings and I know how much it hurts to constantly get picked on…” She added, “When I collab with her [it] is going to be at the right time & the right song. I don’t rush BIG MOMENTS!”

Earlier this month, Cardi became Playboy's first creative director in residence. In her new position, the rapper will provide artistic direction with co-branded fashion, sexual wellness products, digital editorial content, and more.
