Latifah dropped by “Live with Kelly and Ryan” on Sept. 18 and the hosts were curious as to what she thought about Minaj and Cardi B.’s ‘dust-up.’ Kelly Rippa asked Latifah if the two rap stars should just collaborate on an album and put their differences aside.
The “Set It Off” actress said she’s all for a good “dust-up”, but she would like for Minaj and Cardi B. to end their squabble.
“I have a lot of respect for female rappers. We are such a powerful minority,” said Latifah. “I say powerful in the sense that if you hear a female rapper’s record come through on the radio, you hear that record, you know that record, you memorize that record. We just stand out […] I’d really rather see ’em shoot the fair one on a record and take everybody out.”
The “Just Another Day” musician said she could help the collaboration between the two female rappers come alive by producing the project.
“Executive produce [a] ‘We Are The World’ situation’,” she said.
Cardi B. and Minaj got into a heated altercation during NYFW and almost fought. The “Bodak Yellow” artist threw a shoe at Minaj and said the “Chun-Li” artist criticized her parenting skills. Security intervened and ended the dispute between the rivals and Cardi B. was escorted from the fashion event.
