During the course of Cardi B’s short but meteoric musical career, the rap raven has carefully cultivated a confrontational reputation as a femme fatale who will feud with anyone at any time. The most conspicuous example of this fact was the brawl involving Nicki Minaj at last year’s New York Fashion Week.
But now Cardi B is bucking back profanely at a collection of 10-year-old rappers from Westchester, New York named ZN8tion. Westchester, by the way, is a quaint city about an hour’s drive north of New York City.
ZN8tion is a rap group made up of Caucasian quadruplets — who go by the stage names Hollywood, Slim Z, Bonez McKoy and Mr. Great — who have become YouTube and Instagram sensations. They already have 5 million albums worldwide and boast 143,000 Instagram followers.
Did I mention that the four boys just reached double figures in age?
Cardi B was extremely perturbed that ZN8tion would come for her so disrespectfully by telling her in a recent video that “They could fix your teeth, but they couldn’t fix your face,” and “I don’t know what’s faker: your life or your butt.”
The reason for the seemingly unprovoked and uncouth denigration of Cardi B?
ZN8tion believes Cardi is a prolific bully who frequently beats down people on Instagram. So ZN8tion thought they’d put Cardi B over their knees and verbally spank her before giving her a time out. They told Page Six that they wanted to teach Cardi B a lesson.
“We wanted to show Cardi B to not be a bully and give her a taste of her own medicine,” said Hollywood, adding that he had to talk fast to Page Six because his mother was waiting for him after school.
Cardi, 26, was far from amused and unleashed a torrent of vulgarities and profanities during a volcanic Instagram Live response that can be viewed on the next page.
“Not gonna let no little f - - -ing white boys come at me all motherf - - -ing day long. Motherf - - -ing shut the f - - - up and stay in your motherf - - -ing place. Go drink your motherf - - -ing milk, b—. F - - -,” Cardi said.
Hollywood told Page Six that the group is elated at Cardi B’s response which “made us feel like we’d done our job.”
They also released a diss track on disgraced rapper Tekashi 69 in which, incredibly, the four pre-teens said: “Tekashi 69 in the prison dropping soap, crying to the judge but he’s got no hope.”
As you flip the page to hear ZN8tion spit a diss track against Cardi B and then hear her colorful response, you might wonder how the kids’ parents could allow them to utter such things publicly.
