Nicki Minaj Says “MotorSport” Was Originally Only a Collab With Quavo

Shortly after Migos released “MotorSport,” many people began speculating that Nicki Minaj had no idea Cardi B would also be featured on the record. Joe Budden shared his thoughts on the matter in a recent episode of Everyday Struggle.

“I think that Kanye [West] suggested to Migos to put Nicki on this song,” Budden said. “I do not think that Migos or anybody stepped to Nicki and said, 'We have a record featuring Migos and Cardi and we would like you to get on it.' I don't think that happened. […] I don't think there was a Cardi verse anywhere in this equation.”

Well, it turns out Joe’s theory was true; however, Nicki wasn’t exactly blindsided.

Nicki addressed the rumors Tuesday night on Twitter, explaining she originally recorded the song under the assumption it would be just her and Quavo; however, she said Quavo later contacted her about Cardi’s potential verse. Nicki insisted she was all for it.

Nicki went on to say that all of her records receive her stamp of approval before they’re released on streaming services. She also suggested that these blindside theories were a way to perpetuate false rumors that she and Cardi have beef.

Nicki also referenced Cardi’s recent interview with Complex, in which she addressed the rumored feud.

“It’s so annoying. I feel like people wouldn’t even be satisfied even if me and [Nicki] was making out,” Cardi said. “I feel like people just want that drama because it’s just entertaining. You know when Nicki and Remy was going at it with each other, everybody was getting entertained. […] People constantly, always want to talk about how in our community—in the urban community—how we need to get along with each other. But these are the same people who want to see minority women against each other. They don’t that shit in pop music. They don’t do that shit.”

#OFFSET JUST PROPOSED IM SCREAMING 😩😨😨❤️ – @offsetyrn @iamcardib

A post shared by #1 Offset ❤️ Cardi B Fanpage ( on Oct 27, 2017 at 8:18pm PDT

Cardi took to Instagram to express her love for Offset following the proposal. 

People responded to the beautiful news on the very popular website 

Rumors that the couple got engaged started to circulate not too long back. It began after the two went jewelry shopping in Atlanta back on August 22. 

An article from Real Cool Nation titled “Exclusive: Cardi B Just Got Engaged To Migos Rapper Offset — He Proposed Last Night!” was published and added fuel to the fire. The article turned out not to be true, well, not until now at least. 

Cardi is featured on Migos' new Culture 2 single “MotorSport” featuring Nicki Minaj. The track came out just hours prior to the proposal. Both Offset and Cardi B's 2017, even not taking into account this whole engagement​ business, has been spectacular. 

Cardi's summer anthem “Bodak Yellow” clenched the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 while Offset's group Migos dropped their second studio album Culture. The album debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 and reached platinum status back in July.

Congratulations are in order, so congratulations to Cardi B and Offset.
