Nicki Not Retiring, Playboi Carti Leaks, More Women Have Deals Thanks to Cardi B?| Everyday Struggle

  • Published: 22 October 2019
  • On Tuesday’s (Oct. 22) episode of #EverydayStruggle, Nadeska, Wayno and DJ Akademiks start off the show discussing Gucci Mane’s beef with Angela Yee and DJ Envy of The Breakfast Club following the ATL rapper’s so-called ban from Power 105’s morning show. Soon after, the EDS trio weighs in on Nicki Minaj’s recent comments regarding her retirement status and predict whether or not they believe the Barbie will be back to recording full time. Later in the show, Ak & Wayno share their take on Cardi B’s impact in the game, and debate if her success is the reason new female rappers are getting offered record deals easier and faster than before. To close out the episode, the crew answers a fan question regarding the delay of Playboi Carti’s next album ‘Whole Lotta Red’ and discuss Kevin Gates’ hilarious weight loss story.

                              Yep! I agree! I think cardi is the only one that's going to make it up there like that! I'm a cardi fan but I don't see them other female rappers after her doing it! Maybe if they come out with a hit crazy song or something! But no I don't see it!

                                      All Cardi did was lower the standards for female rap, labels realized that we as the general public no longer care about talent making it easier to sign female rappers, when Nicki came you had to be the best, the bar was on the ground for Cardi..... stop making excuses for this chick 😤

                                          Y'all are going stop skipping pass Eve, from the Ruff Ryders. She's been in movies, starred on her own TV Show, had the 2000's rapper fashion line. Now, she has a regular millionaire paycheck on a daily talk show. Better career than most. But Queen Latifah is still the top of the mountain.

                                              Wayno is loud and dumb...mulatto and Asian been rapping way before cardi was even popping on ig. Stop speaking on female rappers if you don’t know shit

                                                The only thing Cardi has done in Hip Hop is lowered the standard for Females. You no longer have to have talent, nor write your own raps, be creative, be lyrical, that’s why her last show she couldn’t sell out an 11k arena in El Paso only 3k. You all don’t want to have an honest conversation on that.
                                                Cardi opened the door for Citygirls and both are waning, non-talented ratchet reciters. Megan, Asian, Malibu Mitch the new female rappers have said they are inspired by Nicki Minaj not Cardi. Fact check and stop making up lies & false narratives to push a non-black, talentless reciter, culture vulture like Cardi.

                                                • Sheelah

                                                  Cardi B is delusional along with Wayno & Chipmunk. NICKI MINAJ MADE IT EASIER FOR LABELS TO SIGN FEMALE RAPPERS, NOT CARDI🗣 How you think Cardi got signed? It’s disingenuous to say otherwise. Every label wants another Nicki Minaj. She’s the most successful female rapper of all time. You all sitting on here saying this ignorant, misinformed rhetoric.
                                                  Nicki did not come from a crew that’s a bold face lie. Nicki worked her ass off, free-styling, promoting her mixtapes on MySpace, selling her CDs out the back of her trunk, going to shows, The Come Up Documentary is how Wayne discovered her. Nicki did that. She was getting 50K for features before her first album. Y’all are mad ridiculous, willfully obtuse making up narratives & lies. This platform is what is wrong with Hip Hop. No fact checking.
