The two emcees also agree on one thing.

This past Friday (Oct. 27) a new collaborative track with Migos, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj emerged, as well as the rumor that Minaj unaware she'd be sharing the airtime with Cardi.

After getting wind of fans claiming that Cardi was added to the track, titled "Motorsport," after the fact and without approval, Minaj took to Twitter to lay such ridiculous rumors to rest.

"Now, if you can find the part where I said I made female rappers mainstream, I'll give you $100,000.00," Nicki Minaj

"I was on the song w/Quavo," Minaj wrote, addressing the rumors the decision was a sneaky move by Cardi's now-fiancé Offset. "No one else was on it. He called & asked if I think we should put Bardi on it, I said 'ok let's do it'. The end."

She also added that conspiracy theories are "just so tired," and that when it comes to her name, her brand and her music, everything must get her approval in advance. And in writing, no less.

"Migos weren't even on it yet," she continued, posting a series of tweets. "Just Quavo. The conspiracy theories r just so tired. Relax. Breathe. Imagine me not knowing who on a song w/me. Anything w/my name on it gets approved by me. It can't even go on a streaming service w/o me hearing it & giving written approval."

Minaj also addressed the recently fabricated beef between her and Cardi, furthering her sentiments about sexism in the music industry.

"These are men in our culture who simply refuse to let it go," Minaj continued. "They don't do this to male M.C.'s. But yo #Motorsport #1 added on urban radio."

Cardi also found herself on the receiving end of such speculation, with the Bronx emcee explaining how she and Minaj could "make out" in a photo and people still wouldn't be satisfied.

Minaj got a laugh out of the Bronx rapper's comment, adding, "Very true. We could make out & it wouldn't be enough. I'm done."
