Cardi B hyped herself up, but others had to stop her dead in her tracks.
In Lil Yachty's new single, "Who Want the Smoke?," Cardi says "The fur on my shoulder mink/ Tell me what Hov would think/ I get money, I am the king of New York/ And I rock a sew-in weave."
After adressing hrself as the 'King of New York,' hip-hop heads couldn't let it slide. One person being, Funk Flex.
Hahaha! A below average rapper that doesn’t write could never be King or Queen of NY! #JustMyOpinion BIGGIE/JAYZ/NAS BUILT THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THAT TITLE!👀🤷🏿♂️✌🏾🤡— Funk Flex !!!!! (@funkflex) July 6, 2018
Cardi then decided to respond with some videos on Instgram.
The rapper said, "What is y'all niggas mad about? Did I say I was the best rapper from New York? No. Does this shit gotta do with rapping? No. I know street niggas and street bitches that feel like they the king and queen of New York. Why can't I feel like I'm a king of New York? Every single time I go to my city people cheer me on, people show me so much love, people show me so much support and it has nothing to do with this rapping."
In a seriously amazing move, she then put a lampshade on her head and declared herself the emperor of New York.
