How many times are fans going to have to teach people that messing with Cardi B is a no-no?
Better yet, how many times is Cardi herself going to have to show people that she isn’t the one to come for? Within her short time in the spot light, the rapstress has called a promoter who refused to pay her, “racist” hotel employees, a rapper who suggested the two had sexual relations, and a fellow artist who was being fake with her.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper’s attention may shift to Josefine Hernandez , as the former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star has teased the video for her Cardi diss.
The Trap Selena Vs. Puerto Rican Princess
The self-proclaimed Puerto Rican Princess made headlines late last year (November 2017) after she dropped for her diss track against Cardi. The nearly-three-minute-long track, “Hate Me now,” is full of unsubtle disses towards the Trap Selena.
“You bought teeth, a**, lipo/Reconstruction on your whole body,” Joseline rapped. “Sucked a whole lot of d**k to get here h*e/Moulin Rouge in this b***h.”
In the track, Joseline even suggested that Cardi can’t do anything about having her name dragged through the mud. “Drag a Bronx b***h/Yeah, I said it,” Joseline spit. “What y’all gon’ do? Fabricated, illustrated cartoon a** b***h/Bloody my a**.”
When the internet got wind of Joseline’s new project… Well, it wasn’t good. Now that Joseline is back, teasing the video for the track, Twitter is letting her have it again… because, well, Twitter don’t get tired…
“Cardi B swooped through and literally became everything Joseline was trying to be. She prolly be crying herself to sleep,” wrote Twitter user @Pattric.
“Cardi B went from the strip club to the Grammys, whether you like her music or not there’s something you can’t deny: Joseline Hernandez is in a corner shook right now,” added @Ebony_QT.
“This s**t trash. Cardi trash if she responds,” posted @MyNig. “Cardi B won’t respond,” replied user @Jaylittlelisa. “Unfortunately, Joseline doesn’t realize that the playing field is no longer level— different tax bracket, different lifestyle, different industry respect, different success facts… Lolol.”
What Cardi B did do was release a general message, letting those who don’t like her know to simply stay away from her.
Around the same time that Joseline’s track started getting a buzz, Cardi hopped on Instagram to say that the “fake s**t” wasn’t necessary. She didn’t say any names nor did she elude to any one person, but the timing of the message was enough to get her point across.
“When it comes to the industry,” the rapper began. “When people reach out to me, and they being genuine, or when they talk to me, I feel when they being genuine. And when they being fake, I feel the same s**t too.”
“Save your time,” Cardi continued. “Don’t reach out to me. Don’t talk to me. Don’t like my s**t. Don’t follow me. Don’t do none of that, cause I know when y’all being fake.”
She then went on to vent about the numerous occasions she’s caught someone being less-than-genuine with her.
