Lil Yachty is set to make an appearance on BET’s Raq Rants Tuesday (October 30) evening and when asked about the ongoing feud between his Quality Control label mate Cardi B and Nicki Minaj, Yachty’s choice is as loyal as they come.
“Cardi B,” Yachty says without hesitation. “Every time.”
However, if the opportunity for Lil Boat and the self-professed Queen of rap to create a record came up, the Atlanta Nuthin’ 2 Prove rapper isn’t necessarily opposed and admits that he “probably would want to.”

Thank you @balleralert watch rest of interview @bet 11pm Raq Rants tonight #Repost @balleralert (@get_repost) ・・・ Lil Yachty Says He Wouldn’t Do Music With Nicki Minaj Because His Loyalty Lies With Cardi B – blogged by @msjennyb (via @tmz_tv) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Monday, social media erupted after #NickiMinaj called out #CardiB over an Instagram argument between Cardi’s sister, Hennessy, and Nicki’s friend, Rah Ali. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The incident escalated after Minaj spilled the “tea” on what she claimed “really” happened at the Harper’s Bazaar Icon Party when Cardi threw her shoe at the Queens-bred rapstar and was escorted out with a knot on her forehead. While initial sources said Cardi’s knot came from an accidental elbow to the face by security- in their attempt to de-escalate the altercation- Minaj said it was all because of her friend, Rah, who she claimed beat Cardi “bad.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As the episode continued, Minaj went on to condemn Cardi’s sister for accusing her and her team of leaking Cardi’s number, among other things, including stopping bags. But, hours later, Cardi took to Instagram to respond to Minaj’s claims with receipts and called the self-proclaimed Barbie out for her lies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although, in the end, the two agreed to move on from the nonsense, the residual effects of the longstanding rift between the two has left others with an ultimatum: Nicki Minaj or Cardi B. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For Yachty, although he has no issue with either party, his loyalty lies with Cardi. End of story. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Quality Control rapper sat down with Raquel Harper for Tuesday’s episode of “Raq Rants” to discuss his new project but amid the conversation, the two touched on the ongoing beef between Minaj and Yachty’s Quality Control sister, Cardi B. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Offset is my big brother,” he said before Harper asked if felt the need to take sides in the beef between the two rap queens. “Yup,” he said, adding that he’s rolling with Cardi, every time. In regards to music, although he would probably want to work with Minaj, he said he just can’t do it because of his loyalty to Cardi B.
Though it’s being reported by TMZ that Yachty said that he would not work with Nicki, he doubles down on his decision of picking Cardi over Nicki via Twitter, while also showing love to Minaj.
“I fuck w nicki doe been did since elementary school.. they just twisted my words,” he tweeted.

It’s not surprising Lil Yachty would pick Cardi over Nicki as they are both signed to QC management. He also refers to Offset, Cardi’s husband, as his big brother.
Things between the Bronx Invasion of Privacy rap star and the Queens hitmaker especially got heated on Monday (October 29) when Nicki hopped on her Queen Radio show to offer $100,000 for surveillance footage of their New York Fashion Week altercation. Cardi quickly hopped on Instagram and fired off a series of clips in response.
By the end of the day, the two called a truce and says they’ll keep things positive moving forward. Perhaps a Lil Yachty and Nicki collab isn’t too far-fetched after all.
