Cardi B and her closest competitor, Doja Cat, fell out and are no longer on speaking terms, according to multiple reports.

Apparently, Doja has surpassed Cardi in terms of popularity. Industry insiders say Doja -- who is all natural -- is easier to market than Cardi. The reason? Well, look at Cardi - now look at Doja.

Cardi has had difficulty matching the success of her summer banger "Bodak Yellow." Rap fans are fickle. They want new music in a timely manner. They will abandon a lazy artist and hop on the next big thing if they don't get what they want.

That "next big thing" is Doja Cat.

Doja has already surpassed Cardi on Spotify and has the second highest monthly listeners with 29 million among female rappers.

Nicki Minaj remains the most popular female rapper on the platform with 49 million monthly listeners.

Cardi couldn't take the heat so she unfollowed Doja on social media.

A source told MTO News, "Cardi is a jealous person. Doja has nothing but love in her heart for Cardi. [Cardi] should work through her jealousy and come join this movement."

Yung Joc was clowned over the weekend when he was caught on video driving for a ride-share service. Joc went viral when Uber customers recorded him picking them up.

"You sound like somebody I know," one of the passengers said. Joc explained that he was driving for "a month or so" because "it was an easy way to get some easy money right here downtown."

Many assumed this was yet another stunt by Joc to go "viral." He doesn't need the few hundred dollars.

The 36-year-old business owner is a cast member on Love & Hip-Hop, as well as a co-host on a popular radio station here in Atlanta. All of which provides him with a tidy income to support his many children.

Behind the scenes, Joc caught flack for pulling more stunts in order to "go viral" on social media.

He isn't the only one. Many washed up celebrities hire PR firms to come up with stunts that have a high probability of going viral and increasing more "engagement" on social media.

As an industry insider explained to me: "Going viral is this generation's currency."

But according to Joc, his Uber driving gig is no stunt for fleeting viral fame.

The former rapper told TMZ that he has been part of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta for years, and he is leading by example.

"You show them what humility is and you're not too big to do the right thing by making an honest living," he said. "I think that's why a lot of kids - and even adults - go astray. Because they're too ashamed, they're too prideful to do something."

He said one of the perks of "going viral" was the support he received from people like OG rapper Snoop Dogg.

"The most phenomenal part of this experience from this going viral is the amount of support," he said. "I just realize that maybe people are beginning to be a little more mature."

Speaking of maturity, it will be interesting to see what stunt Joc comes up with next.

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris is ashamed that he agreed to co-sign Iggy Azalea before she dropped her only rap hit "Fancy" in 2014.

Record labels are known to pair popular artists with newcomers to introduce them to a readymade fanbase.

T.I. caught a lot of heat from social media for co-signing the 29-year-old Australian rapper.

Harlem rapper Azealia Banks was among those who criticized T.I. after Iggy called herself a "runaway slave" in a rap song.

But now T.I. is apologizing for helping to legitimize Iggy.

In a promo for his new Netflix competition reality show Rhythm + Flow, the 39-year-old Libra apologized and called Iggy his "biggest blunder."

"I'm still actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea," he said. "That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as a music executive is concerned. To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball," he said comparing himself to the NBA icon.

Iggy went awf in response to T.I.'s diss. She called him a "misogynistic a**hole" and threw jabs at T.I.'s current roster of rappers who have yet to see hits.

"Imagine thinking I was his biggest blunder lmaoooooooo," she wrote. "Tip, Sweetie. We have a whole list for you."
