Over the weekend, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B made headlines due to an alleged physical altercation at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS Party for NYFW. Since the incident occurred, Cardi B went off in a note that she posted on Instagram. While she didn’t name Nicki, the statement was obviously about her given everything that recently transpired.

As expected, Nicki directly addressed the ordeal on the latest episode of Queen Radio on Beats 1. During the live broadcast, she played an audio recording of Cardi B saying the following: “Nothing is off-limits. I hate when some people come at me like, ‘Why you coming at kids for.’ I’m my mother’s baby.”

In addition to defending herself, Nicki came prepared with the receipts. In addition to accusing Cardi B of carrying out attacks on multiple women, Nicki also allowed a woman named “Clarissa” to share her own personal encounter with the rapper. According to the caller, Cardi B supposedly referred to her deceased son as “a monkey” in response to a comment that she wrote on the rapper’s Instagram.

Scroll down for six of the biggest takeaways from the wild episode.

On how embarrassed she was by the public dispute:

“The way they passed by looking at this disgusting commotion I was mortified. I was wearing a Gaultier gown off the motherfucking runway and I could not believe how humiliating it all felt — how we made ourselves look.”

In response to to Cardi’s allegations of Nicki making comments about her daughter, Kulture:

“I would never discuss anyone’s child. For someone to pin that on me because I’m the bad guy and they know people would believe them…[that’s] because I’m the bad guy and they know people would believe them. I just want to let the world know that Onika Tanya Maraj will never has never speak ill of anyone’s child. I am not a clown, that’s clown shit.”

On the foundation of Cardi’s music career:

“You came into my fucking culture! I never had to bang a DJ to play my fucking songs. You call black women roaches. Real bitches never attack a woman. You’re angry and you’re sad. This is not funny. Get this woman some fucking help. This woman’s at the highest point in her career and she’s throwing shoes?”

On her relationship with Offset and where she stands with him:

“I have no beef with Offset, but I have to be a voice for these women.”

On when the beef has gone too far:

“Get this woman some fucking help. This woman is at the best stage of her career and she’s throwing bottles?… Who the fuck is gonna give her an intervention? You n****s don’t care until somebody’s fucking dead…. This shit ain’t fucking funny. You put your hands on certain people, you gonna die. Period.”

On how she financially supports herself:

“I’m not one of these bitches in the strip club or on a reality show. My money is very fucking long too.”
