The Internet Is Crashing And Burning Over Nicki Minaj And Cardi B’s ‘Motorsport’ Video

Wigs have been snatched.

Published December 7, 2017

The hotly debated, highly anticipated “MotorSport” track by Migos, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B has finally switched gears and received the visual treatment for its official music video, released on Wednesday night (December 6).

Futuristic aestheticism and ultramodern shots, courtesy of its director duo Bradley & Pablo, give fast and furious an entire new meaning. While Offset may be flexing comfortably in the driver’s seat of his butterfly-doored luxury whip, it’s his Bronx femcee fiancée who’s front seat and center for the scene, grabbing full control with fierce lyricism and a head-turning ensemble worthy of a NASCAR nod.

When Nicki shows up for her verse in an all-white chamber, suited perfectly with her own all-white sports car and butterfly doors, the video hits wig-snatching overdrive mode. Nicki the Ninja is magnetizing, sporting floor-length pink braids and a metallic-paneled bodysuit that would put Sophia the Robot to shame.

Despite the flawlessness served up by both Nicki and Cardi, some fans still dissected the visuals and noticed, perhaps, the most obvious element of the video: Nicki and Cardi’s separate scenes.

And while some are still trying to make evidence out of a Cardi versus Nicki rivalry, the rest of the internet’s panic mode just ran into full overdrive for the “MotorSport” video.
