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?
