Cardi B was heated after producer Jermaine Dupri slammed the music industry for co-signing "strippers rapping".
Dupri, who signed two-time Grammy nominated rapper Da Brat when she was a teenager, said he is unimpressed with the current stable of female rappers who got their start dancing for dollars in strip clubs.
"In an interview with People Now, when asked how he feels about Cardi, Nicki Minaj and rising star Meghan Thee Stallion, Dupri said he was unimpressed: "For me, it's like strippers rapping and as far as rap goes I'm not getting who's the best."
Dupri echoed the sentiments of other industry insiders who prefer that strippers stay in their lanes and not take the spotlight from talented female rappers.
In a video posted on Instagram on Thursday, Cardi responded to her followers who asked her to address Dupri's comments. She placed the blame on social media users who don't show the same support for up-and-coming rappers such as Rapsody, Tierra Whack, Kamaiyah, and Chika.
"There's a lot of female rappers who be rapping they ass off and don't be talking about their p--sy and don't be talking about getting down on dirty and y'all don't be supporting them," she said. "So don't blame that s--t on us, when y'all not the ones supporting them."
She added that the rappers who do talk about sex are the ones who get the best response from the audience.
"It seems that's what people want to hear," she continued. "When I did Be Careful people we're talking mad s**t in the beginning. If that's what people ain't trying to hear, then alright, I'm gonna go rap about my p**sy again [sic]."
