Despite Offset and Cardi B’s relationship drama making headlines, the rap stars are laughing all the way to the bank about it. In July, Offset publicly accused Cardi of cheating with someone who slid in her DMs, claiming, “My wife f*cked a N*gga on me, gang,” in a now-deleted post.
After Cardi shut down the rumors, warning not to “play with” her, they apparently took this beef to the booth. This marks the power couple’s first collaboration since their 2019 hit, “Clout.”

On Friday, they dropped their latest collaboration, “Jealousy,” which takes aim at their biggest haters. The infectious beat samples Three 6 Mafia’s “Jealous A** B*tches.” Offset channels his inner stay-at-home son for the Jody character in the Baby Boy-themed music video, which he also directed.

Offset cruised between makeups and breakups with Cardi through the streets of South Central L.A. while he slid on the beat. Some of his ultra-quotable lyrics taking over social media include lines like:
“I’m sellin’ prescription cocaine/ She f*ck with my pimpin’, my cane/
I’m Michael, I’m not no Jermaine.”

I know Cardi referenced Tasha K big teeth ugly ass in #Jealousy but I don’t think she was specifically referring to anyone else. I think Cardi just be rapping & fans apply it to anyone they THINK it should apply to. I swear Cardi don’t be concerned abt beef. She just make bangers

In a hilarious teaser, Cardi dished relationship drama with her Baby Boy bestie Taraji. The Emmy-nominated actress hyped Cardi up against haters gossiping about her marriage.
“That stank h*e b*tch! She’s thirsty,” Taraji said about the unnamed woman spreading relationship rumors.
“Since he [cheated] before, whether he did it or not, people are going to believe it. That’s why I want to bag this n*gga. Even though it’s in the past, you should have never done it in the first place. That’s why we’re always in this motherf*cking predicament,” Cardi vented.
Offset reenacted a classic James Brown interview with Jamie Lee Curtis earlier this week. The real star of the super funny clip was Offset’s James Brown bundles.
Other cameos included Offset and Cardi’s blended family, Wave Set, 1; Kulture, 5; Kalea and Kody, 8; and Jordan, 13.
