10-Year-Old Quadruplet Boys Release Cardi B Diss Track And She Can’t Help But Respond In The Most Cardi Way Possible

When I heard Cardi B was dragging some 10-year-old boys on social media, my first thought was: oh no, Cardi! Then I heard the rap. There’s something terribly offputting about four little white boys telling an Afro-Latinx she belongs in a zoo, calling her trash, and then body-shaming her.

Cardi B is known for embracing and leading the life of a gangster. She has never hidden the fact that she is a product of the streets, and won’t shy away from confrontations no matter the time or the place. The woman threw her shoe at Nicki Minaj during fashion week for god’s sake. I would watch myself around her…

Four 10-year-old boys dropped a Cardi diss track and released a fake video of her responding.

A group of 10-year-old quadruplet brothers released an offensive Cardi B diss track for seemingly no reason besides garnering attention. While they have since made their Instagram private, the account links to an alleged “response” from Cardi. The video was later revealed by The Bronx rapper to have been a fake. 

“You belong in the zoo,” they rap. The boys dance around a recording studio calling a woman of color “washed up,” before saying, “Cardi you’re trash… They could fix your teeth, but they couldn’t fix your face,” and “I don’t know what’s faker: your life or your butt.”

When the New York Post reached out for comment, the boys said it was supposed to be antibullying. Yes, bullying people to stop bullying… cool. 

“We wanted to show Cardi B to not be a bully and give her a taste of her own medicine,” the rapper Hollywood said.

“Where are your parents? Do you need apple juice and food?” Emerald said.

When the NY Post asked what they thought of Cardi’s response (when it was believed to be real) Hollywood said it “made us feel like we’d done our job.”

The response video is fake, however, and was posted onto their YouTube channel so they were clearly misleading and lying to reporters. 

Did Cardi metaphorically dog walks these four poor brethren? 

In the fake video, Cardi is edited to appear as though she is responding to ZN8tion. 

“Not gonna let no little f - - king white boys come at me all motherf - - king day long. Motherf - - king shut the f - - k up and stay in your motherf - - king place. Go drink your motherf - - king milk, bitch. F - - k,” she says. 

However, Cardi has since clarified she was responding to Grammy detractors and that her video was re-edited to appear as though she was responding to ZN8tion. She released the complete video. 

“First of all I was talking about a fan base that was coming for me when it comes to album and Grammies and people chopped my video to make it seem like I was talkin about them kids. Second why don’t ya go bitch to the parents that got lil kids talking shit about others?” She said on Twitter.

Who are these little boys anyway? 

Four 10-year-old quadruplet brothers from Westchester, New York make up the rap crew ZN8tion. They go by the names Hollywood, Slim Z, Bonez McKoy, and Mr. Great. They have a song called “Fart Love.” I am not saying it’s a genuine bop, but it might go hard. This feels extremely appropriate for 10-year-olds. 

However, they also have a Tekashi69 diss track called “Wangster.” The opening line is, “Bro she wasn’t 18, you didn’t know.” This feels extremely inappropriate. The quartet has 143,000 followers on Instagram and their YouTube videos tend to get a few thousand views.

Westchester is a largely wealthy suburb outside of New York City. You’ll notice that the boys often perform in a recording studio. I am going to guess the average 10-year-old doesn’t have a home studio or can afford to buy studio time. Something strange is amiss in ZN8tion. These children are clearly being coached to impersonate people of color and disparage them to get attention on social media. 

It’s naptime, kiddos.  

 I am not mad at these kids, they’re just kids, but I am very disappointed in their parents. The language that they use is nothing short of racist and sexist – and you have to wonder who they are learning it from? You have to wonder which adult is filming, uploading, and approving these messages? You have to wonder if four little boys are even capable of producing and writing a song without any help from an adult too?  

The pointed attacks on rappers of color are deeply problematic and a strange fixation for a group of little kids to have. These kids are manufacturing fake celebrity feuds for attention. You have to wonder who is profiting from it? 

Samantha Barbash Said Jennifer Lopez Should Not Have Played Her In ‘Hustlers,’ It Would Have Been Better With Cardi B

Samantha Barbash Said Jennifer Lopez Should Not Have Played Her In ‘Hustlers,’ It Would Have Been Better With Cardi B

Jennifer Lopez cannot believe the incredibly positive reviews she’s getting over her lead role in the film “Hustlers.” She was so moved that she cried on national TV. Last week while being interviewed by Hoda Kotb, Lopez expressed her emotional reaction over the surprising reviews for her role, which some critics say could get her an Acadamy Award nomination. Here’s just a snippet of what film critics are saying about the film that made a big debut this weekend. “Hustlers asks what a movie like Goodfellas looks like with women at the center of the story,” one film critic said. “If nothing else, we get to see Jennifer Lopez command the screen as easily as Ramona does the stage, offering up a seductive awards-worthy performance that makes us remember why she became a movie star in the first place,” another said

There is at least one person who isn’t raving about Lopez’s role, and that’s the one who inspired the film. 

Samantha Barbash, the woman who inspired “Hustlers,” said she would have liked to have seen Cardi B in the lead role instead of Jennifer Lopez.

The 45-year-old said in an interview with Hollywood Life that rapper Cardi B should have portrayed her instead of the veteran actress, even though this is Cardi’s first film. “I said it from day one, even to the producer. Cardi doesn’t have the acting skills that Jennifer does, but Cardi could relate more to who I was because even though she wasn’t in the same club, we were in the same industry,” she told the lifestyle website. “If Cardi took some acting lessons and shadowed me, I’m sure that she would have played a better role for my character.”

Barbash goes on to say that she is flattered that Lopez wanted to play her in a movie but stresses that the film got several things wrong about her.

For starters, Barbash wasn’t a stripper at all. The film, based on a 2015 New York magazine article, shows Lopez as a stripper who ends up drugging wealthy bankers and robs them of their money. However, Barbash said she was never a stripper. Barbash actually worked at a strip club in New York City as a hostess. Yes, the other stuff about the drugs and taking their money is correct, but seeing Lopez play her a stripper didn’t sit well with her. Barbash also said that Lopez never reached out to her in order to learn about her mannerisms, which is what actors do when they’re portraying real-life characters. Even when the real-life character is deceased, actors still study old footage to learn more about the role they are playing. You may recall the extensive research Lopez said she did to portray Selena Quintanilla. She even slept in her bed to get into deep character.  

Earlier this year, Barbash said she would release her own memoir about the ordeal (which she did) that got her 5 years probation and said she planned to sue the filmmakers.

“This is a living nightmare,” Barbash said in April in the New York Post after videos leaked of Lopez on a stripper pole. “So now I’m going to have to do a lawsuit. I’m getting a gag order.” Bruno Gioffre, also said back then, that Barbash was “considering all legal avenues with the possibility injunctive relief, including a lawsuit.” The movie was made despite her legal threats. Today, Barbash is an entrepreneur and owns her own spa business. 

We can see why she would have preferred to see Cardi B in the title role.

The Bronx rapper did admit to drugging men and robbing them, just like the characters did in the movie “Hustlers.” In 2017, Barbash was charged for conspiracy, assault, and grand larceny in exchange for five years probation

In March, Card admitted on social media that during her stint as a stripper in New York she too did what the “Hustlers” did in the movie. “I had to go strip, I had to go, ‘Oh yeah, you want to f*ck me? Yeah, yeah, yeah, let’s go to this hotel,’ and I drugged n*****s up and I robbed them. That’s what I used to do.” 

Soon after that post, Cardi said she it was wrong of her to do that and has since tried to make a better life for herself.

Cardi B Blows Up Instagram As She Shares Her Opinion On Best Lighting Options For Sex

Would you even be surprised to hear that Cardi B is at it again – this time talking about the best lighting to have during sex? Probably not. In classic Cardi B style, she took to Instagram to set the record straight, and give everyone the low-down on how we should be having sex. Because we all know that in the modern age, the best way to get your message across on the important things is via the glorious Insta feed.

As any true sex aficionado, Cardi gave us all the reasons why we shouldn’tuse certain lighting.

She begins by explaining why a fully-lit room can ruin the mood. ”If I see a pimple on a n**** face, it distract me from cumming because now I wanna pop the pimple … I can’t focus at all,” she said. Clearly, Cardi B is one of those people who can watch one of those Youtube vids showing pimples getting popped in graphic detail, without getting squicked out over it. More power to her – except for when she’s in bed, obviously.

Next, Cardi brought out the next point in her argument: that there’s no way you wanna be banging when it’s pitch black.

”You know you start seeing monsters when it’s too dark and sh*t. Oh, b*tch, I’m scared I wanna get out of here,” she explained. Okay, so now somehow we’re not only getting hints and tips on getting the best out of our time in the bedroom, we’re also learning more about Cardi B. She’s afraid of the dark? Man, it’s time for her to invest in some cute lil fairy lights or something. We all know that even though that hipster aesthetic is hella adorable, it was really made for people who aren’t a fan of the dark.

And then, Cardi B schooled us on how we should be setting the mood when we’re in the bedroom.

“You know when you’re in the club, when that blue light is on and everyone looks beautiful … you look beautiful when the TV light is on,” she said. And you know what, she’s not wrong. There’s something to be said about the dim lighting that a television can provide. After all, “Netflix and chill” was invented for a reason, right? And now it’s evolved beyond just being a simple pickup line, into an actual phenomenon, thanks to Cardi B.

But, this brings up more questions: is it possible for whatever’s on TV to be too distracting?

Instagram / @iamcardib

For us hippies out here: would a lava lamp suffice? What about sound coming from the TV? Are we going to ignore the initial awkwardness of getting hot and heavy with someone, to then fiddling with the lights and turning on the television? If Cardi’s gonna argue this, then she’s gonna need to go all out and really explore the topic with us. We. Need. Answers. And if this turns into a series on Insta, we’re breaking out the popcorn.

Anyway, as you’ve probably already guessed, things are blowing up on Insta and on Twitter.

Instagram / @iamcardib

The comments were alive with people applauding Cardi for sharing a universal truth. It’s now a fact, babes.

Some of these comments though…

Others were surprised that what should be a sexy night in can turn into a full-on ghost story for our girl.

Maybe not too surprising, Cardi B had her supporters online.

Chances are Cardi isn’t the first one to have discovered the benefit of a blue light, with some fans applauding her statement and making them feel seen.

Things were a bit different on Twitter, though.

It probably doesn’t help that Cardi also took to Twitter to share her thoughts on spitting and sex – and suddenly everyone had to Tweet their thoughts on what was going on behind the scenes for Cardi B. This led some to inquire about the health of Cardi and Offset’s relationship. We can answer this now, for you: they’re doing fine, of course – Cardi’s got the whole TV lighting thing sorted, after all!

Others had a bit of a giggle – because Cardi B was doing what Cardi does best. No, not rapping – chatting about sex online!

A fan or two couldn’t help but think about what Cardi’s comments meant for Cardi and Offset’s sex life. 

At the end of the day Cardi B is out here doing God’s work, since she’s destigmatizing women having a sexual appetite, one Instagram rant at a time. Thanks, Cardi. And for those of you who are curious about the original post, we’ve got it right herefor you. Yeah, you’re welcome.
