Chance the Rapper is not one for drama.
While on Real 92.3’s Big Boy’s Neighborhood radio show, the Chicago native gave his opinion on the years-long Cardi B and Nicki Minaj feud, explaining why he believes it was orchestrated by everyone but the rappers themselves.
“A lot of that stuff is produced,” he told Big Boy. “Everything is curated before we get to see it. Like, all the information, the way that they phrase it to us; The way they pit people against [each other]. It’s made for you to accept it a certain way, so a lot of people had to choose a side. I don’t want to speak for them at all, but I feel like to a certain extent they got pushed into that too, and I don’t think that all of that was a hundred percent their feelings.”
Chance added, “Just being honest, they are two of the greatest recording artists. And that’s just facts. The way that their music touches people, the way they’ve impacted music? It has been incredible.”
He went on to praise Nicki for her great impact on the entire music industry, noting her groundbreaking work to allow artists to get the money “they’re owed” for “streaming rights,” and her fight with Billboard that led to them accounting “for streams they weren’t counting.”
“I respect Nicki in a whole different way,” Chance continued. “I’m not close to Nicki on friend level because she’s more of in a mentor space for me […] Cardi’s my friend. I have a massive amount of respect for both of the man I think we all should.”
Chance also opened up about how Cardi’s husband Offset inspired him to propose to his now-wife Kirsten, following the Migos rapper’s secret wedding to Cardi. “Offset’s definitely probably one of the big inspirations in me manning up,” Chance explained.
As fans know, Chance and Kirsten welcomed their second child together, daughter Marli earlier this month.
