New York Hip-Hop is about to get a much needed lift. Remy Ma has announced she is working with Cardi B. on new music.

During a recent appearance on VH1’s Facebook Live, Rem confirmed that the two ladies are collaborating. “Yes we actually were talking about it last night. She grabbed me and said ‘We need to do a song together, I’m not playing!’,” she explained.

But the “All The Way Up” rapper wasn’t always convinced about Cardi’s skills. Remy admitted to being skeptical due to her reality television come up.

“When I first heard her—in this business you see people come in and take this rap thing as a joke, people think ‘oh because I got a fat a** and pretty face I’m gonna be a rapper. I just assumed that that’s what it was with her, I actually told her this. And then I saw one day, it was on Youtube or something, she was about 17 in high school and she was performing in a talent show in school and it just changed everything. I think she works really hard and she deserves it.”

Her announcement comes at a very interesting time as rumors about a Nicki Minaj and Cardi beef have been brewing after “No Flags” was released. The new track had some bars that most thought were aimed at everyone’s favorite regular degular scmegular girl from the Bronx (“Lil’ b*tch I heard these labels tryna make another me/ Everything you getting little hoe is cause of me).

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper denounced any chances of a beef during her recent MTV VMA Award debut. “I don’t want problems with anybody. I just want to make music and make money. I don’t have time to look at other women and what they’re doing ”

Should the Barbs be looking at this potential Bronx union as a sneak attack? We think not. This is not the first time the two have showed solidarity though. Remy invited Cardi B., Lady of Rage, MC Lyte, Lil’ Kim, Monie Love, Young M.A. and Queen Latifah to her set at the HOT97’s 2017 Summer Jam.
