Chance The Rapper went on Power 105.5FM Radio to discuss various topics. One item that was brought up was the rivalry between Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. In his opinion, the beef between those two rappers were “produced” by media and fans more than the entertainers themselves.
“A lot of that stuff is produced,” he told Big Boy. The Chicago native continued to state the following.
Everything is curated before we get to see it. Like, all the information, the way that they phrase it to us; The way they pit people against [each other]. It’s made for you to accept it a certain way, so a lot of people had to choose a side. I don’t want to speak for them at all, but I feel like to a certain extent they got pushed into that too, and I don’t think that all of that was a hundred percent their feelingsChance The Rapper
Chance The Rapper also gave praise to Nicki Minaj for the way she changed the way artists get paid through streaming platforms and going up against Billboard “for streams they weren’t counting”.

“I respect Nicki in a whole different way. I’m not close to Nicki on friend level because she’s more of in a mentor space for me Cardi’s my friend. I have a massive amount of respect for both of them and I think we all should.”
Chance The Rapper also says that Cardi B’s husband gave him the inspiration to marry his wife.
