Was Wiz Khalifa Hating On Cardi B?
In November 2020, Wiz was on Twitter expressing frustration with the Grammys. When a fan wrote that it was a sham that Cardi B won a Grammy over Nicki Minaj, Wiz appeared to agree and take a dig at Cardi.
“Most self made artists have this problem,” Wiz tweeted in response to a Nicki Minaj fan who wrote, “Cardi [winning] a Grammy when Nicki Minaj didn’t is the biggest proof that they don’t know a sh*t bout music.”
