For reference, I don’t usually like what’s on the radio these days, but I do love songs like “Starships” by Nicki Minaj because they have a great melody and rhythm to them. I feel like Cardi B is just a Nicki Minaj wannabe.
Its like how Chad Kroger of Nickelback was trying to be Kurt Cobain back in the 2000’s. Now, obviously Cobain was more talented than any other artist mentioned here, but the effect is the same.
Nicki Minaj also has a lot more memorability that Cardi B. When I hear the name “Nicki Minaj,” I know who that is. I thought Cardi B was a fashion line by Migos until a few weeks ago.
On a lyrical level, Cardi B isn’t good at all compared to Nicki Minaj. I checked out some her songs on YouTube a few days ago and I can’t even remember what they sound like except it felt like listening to a cliche freestyle.
I have respect for rap music as an art form, but I have no respect for excessive diva-ism. Cardi B is a diva, not a queen. So is Nicki Minaj, but at least she has more catchy songs. And Cardi’s also a bad artist, so yeah, I don’t think she’s the next Nicki Minaj.
