In light of Cardi B dropping the single and video for “WAP” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, Cardi B went live on Youtube along with Megan to discuss the record and video. During the conversation, the two rappers also discussed what it’s like being women rappers.

Before talking about a few obstacles they face as women MCs, Cardi gave Megan a lot of compliments. “I’m just so proud of you. You always stay positive. You’re a very positive person…,” Card told Megan.”Keep that spirit like that.”

“When it comes to female rappers, people drive you to the top and when you’re up there they want to put you down and that’s because of their own misery. It’s not you. It’s motherf—ing them,” Cardi B said to Megan.

“I feel like being a female rapper I definitely learned how to have tough skin,” Megan replied. “Just the internet in general and people forget that you are also human and they stop talking to you like you’re a person.”

Megan said that people think that women rappers either “never see it” or they think they’re on such a level that women rappers won’t respond back. “F— that!” Cardi said before telling Megan that she’s “up.” Watch the clip below.
