Nicki Minaj has signed an endorsement agreement with Call of Duty, seizing an opportunity that Cardi B did not. The popular video game featured Minaj in its most recent advertisement, which also featured several other celebrities.
Cardi B recently disclosed that she did not secure a deal with the video firm because of her previous indiscretions, prompting Minaj to sign an endorsement arrangement.
“My poor mistakes in the past have forced me to lose money now,” Cardi tweeted on September 27. “I had a multi-million dollar Call of Duty agreement on the table that I was unable to accept due to court.” Guys, think twice about making snap decisions! “I’ve learned my lesson.”
My stupid decisions from the past caused me to miss out on money now. I had a multi-million dollar Call of Duty deal on the table that I couldn’t take because of court. Guys think twice about those quick decisions! Lesson learned.

Cardi was referring to the felony and misdemeanor charges she received in 2018 after an altercation at a New York strip club, as Blavity previously reported.
The 29-year-old Grammy winner avoided prison time by pleading guilty to third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment. Cardi agreed to do 15 days of community service as well.
Nonetheless, Cardi’s business chances have suffered as a result of her court battle. Now, Minaj is seizing the opportunity to promote Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which is set to be published on October 28.

Rap’s New Guard is Choosing Sides in Cardi B. And Nicki Minaj’s Feud!
Both Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. presently have top songs in rotation that include popular newcomers.
The spirited chart-toppers, however, are shrouded in a cloud of controversies involving their online disputes.
Lyrics and presumptive drama account for a large portion of this. In her song “Tomorrow 2,” which also featured rapper GloRilla, Cardi B. allegedly made fun of the City Girls, who are now supporting Nicki Minaj. Many celebrities, including JT, BIA, Katie Got Bandz, Akbar V, and Maliibu Miitch, appeared on Nicki Minaj‘s remix of “Super Freaky Girls,” and fans perceived this as “swearing allegiance” to Nicki over Cardi.
It appears to be a full-scale battle to those who are paying close attention to the digs, featured music, and shifting allegiances.
