Cardi B Argues with Hip-Hop Music Critic Over Adding her Old Songs For New Album

Cardi B's situation showcases how music labels hold on to old songs for certification success by adding them on new albums.

This past week has been eventful on social media. But in particular, a back-and-forth tiff between a Hip-Hop music enthusiast and artist, Cardi B.

In true Hip-Hop fashion, an unnecessary attack occurred because of a misunderstanding. I thought Hip-Hop centered debates or conversations sparked up disagreements. But when people who miss the mark by listening to respond, they always find themselves in the middle of chaos. And that happened six days ago. 

The Chaotic Twitter Vindication

Bobby Foster, a Hip-Hop music enthusiast, and booming content creator-started a conversation panel on his Twitter feed. This is an occasional thing he does for his subscribers and supporters. He posted his opinion about Cardi and other Hip-Hop artists adding old songs to new projects. The now-deleted tweet from Bobby Foster said,

 “I blame the streaming era. Artists just do this to get certifications for their album. I don’t like it.”

This was just an opinion on a fairly debatable topic. I saw nothing wrong with it. But as usual, Cardi B’s fans made it seem like Bobby was against Cardi because he was supposedly a Nicki fan. In response to these allegations, Bobby simply replied,

Have you noticed as the years pass by, Hip-Hop conversations have diluted drastically? It seems nowadays, artists get easily offended by constructive advice or opinions. Either an artist assumes a said critic has an agenda against them, or in this situation–favors their rival. One thing that boggled my mind as I browsed through the tweets bashing Bobby was, what does his opinion have to with Nicki Minaj? Cardi’s fans believed the conversation was an attack on their favorite artist. As usual, we do not discuss the actual argument. I cannot comprehend why people against the tweet didn’t think it had to do with the industry. 

The Actual Conversation

We should have a more pressing conversation about this chaotic unfolding. Music labels constrict artists by releasing songs in a disheveled scheduled manner. The music industry has used all tactics known to people for selling records. Why is GREED the driving force in an industry where lyricism, bars, disses, and conversations were all that mattered? How should artists do music now?
