Migos’ MotorSport is an interesting song for many reasons. When I first heard the existence of this track I thought I was being trolled. It is a well known fact that Cardi B and Nicki Minaj are far from besties so this track had me eerie. Listening to it its a dope record but Nicki Minaj’s verse is suspiciously long. What was going on here.
Originally MotorSport was meant to be a Quavo and Nicki Minaj song. Nicki did her verse, as expected. Somewhere along the line it became a Migos song, meaning Offset (Cardi’s bae) was also going to be on it. There was one problem though, allegedly Nicki had namedropped Cardi and sent some obvious subs her way which Cardi didn’t like and she wasn’t in support of the song being released as is.
Then Cardi jumped on the track, Nicki had to do a different verse for the song and then it came out. Listen to Cardi B‘s thoughts about how she got to be on MotorSport. Do you believe her? Does that explain Nicki’s 24 bar verse?

Cardi B and Nicki Minaj not sharing a single shot in the video may confirm these allegations… Either way its a big record for both parties involved. The last controversial Hip-Hop song like this was Young Buck’s Stomp were T.I’s verse had to be replaced by The Game‘s more friendly verse as the two were directly dissing each other on the song.
Still on MotorSport Takeoff also said some meh stuff on his verse about Nicki that Nicki hadn’t realized was about her till the song came out.
To which Nicki responded…
Take Off verse on Motorsport. 🤔😩 it’s my shit tho but ummm 🤣 I feel like I didn’t peep them lines until the song came out. I was like 😲
