The rap queen appears on the much-talked-about “Transformer,” on which she seemingly throws shade at rival Cardi B. “Four albums in, pull a milli for a show / While these bitches is servin’ Milli Vanilli on the low,” raps Nicki.
Some have taken the lyrics as a shot at Cardi, who has been accused of using a ghostwriter. Milli Vanilli became notorious for having their Grammy for Best New Artist revoked after it was revealed that it wasn’t their vocals on some of their songs.
It doesn’t end there. Later on “Transformer,” Nicki adds, “Some call me Nicki, but some call me Megatron / I’m stopping bags and I don’t need a red octagon.”
Following their Fashion Week dustup last month, Cardi accused Nicki of “stopping her bag.” “I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, fuck up the way I eat!” wrote Cardi in her Instagram post. “Bitches talk all that shit in they raps but in real life they pussy! This shit really is for entertainment!!”
“Nicki Stopped My Bag” became a meme, which inspired Nicki to release a line of backpacks, shirts, and jackets with the catchphrase.
