Shade might have been thrown, and Cardi caught it.
Tekashi 6ix9ine's album leaked over the weekend. His Nicki Minaj-featured track, "MAMA," was part of the lot that hit the web. Some of the female rapper's lines caused listeners to believe she was dissing her rival, Cardi B. The bars in question insinuated the possibility of Cardi B exchanging sexual favors with industry professionals to benefit her career.

This line of thought snaked its way to Cardi B who was quick to shut the whole thing down through Instagram Live.
"Nah, I never f*cked a deejay on God. I dealt with scammers. Drug dealers. I’ve dealt with some bum a*s n*ggas but I never f*cked me a deejay. I know what y’all gonna ask me and I addressed this a whole lot of times, ‘Didn’t you f*ck Self?’ No, I never f*cked Self. I never been in a relationship with Self. I never flirted with Self."
Nicki's lines on "MAMA" don't actually name Cardi. It also doesn't mention a DJ. The only reason for the speculations above might be found in the fact that both rappers have been at odds for months. The mention of Spain may also have something to do with it:
“I was out in Spain rockin’ a Medusa head/I ain’t never have to give a rap producer head/If I do though, I’ma write a book like Supahead/This ain’t wonder that I’m making, this that super bread/Splish, splash, fuck him in a hurry, quick, fast”
