Wiz Khalifa is making it clear that he does not have any issues with Cardi B after he responded to a tweet from a fan who discredited the Grammys because Nicki Minaj never won the coveted award.

On Tuesday (Nov. 24), the “Black and Yellow” emcee took to Twitter to encourage his fellow industry peers to keep grinding after many artists felt snubbed from the 63rd Grammy Award nominations, which were announced earlier that day.

“As a Grammy-nominated artist, I know how it feels. N*ggas always think it’s unfair until they get their turn,” he wrote.

“Just keep workin and that time’ll come through ... I felt like I got throughly robbed for ‘See You Again.’ Haven’t been bacc since, but when tha time comes ima have a joint rolled and dope ass speech ready. And it’s Taylor Gang Or Die.”

He then responded to a tweet from a Nicki fan page that tweeted, “Cardi winning a Grammy when Nicki Minaj didn’t is the biggest proof that they don’t know shit bout music.”

Wiz simply replied, “Most self-made artists have this problem.” His response did not sit well with Cardi and she called him out about it on Twitter. She tweeted, “I don’t understand why n*ggas entertain tweets that pit successful women against each other. Ya not tired of that? Specially when ya was rooting hard when a bitch was at the bottom.”

She then posted a screenshot of an old direct message from Wiz where he gave her advice as she was just starting out in the rap game. “This was Nikkas in my dms in 2016! They really support you when you grinding at the bottom then it’s a different story when you make it!” she tweeted.

The Cabin Fever rapper clarified his comments to Cardi. “Damn, that wuz good advice,” he tweeted. “I still support u. Nothing’s changed. You’re self-made in my book as well.” Wiz also said that he did not want “a Cardi/Wiz war going on for no reason.”
