Halle Berry On Backlash for Calling Cardi B the ‘Queen of Hip Hop’: ‘I Do’ Stand By My Comment!

Published: Tuesday 16th Nov 2021 by Rashad

As Halle Berry gears up for the November 24 premiere of her new Netflix film, ‘Bruised’ (in which she also makes her directorial debut), the Academy Award winner’s ego may have suffered a bruise after she was unceremoniously slammed for crowning Cardi B the ‘Queen of Hip Hop.’

Cardi – who leads the charge for the movie’s all-female soundtrack (which arrives on digital shelves November 19) – earned big praise from Berry at the flick’s recent premiere event.

“I would like to say thank you today to Cardi B,” the 55-year-old movie star said. “She was my partner in crime. Of course, she’s the queen of hip hop. I reached out to Cardi and we paired and we created… a soundtrack and an album that is not only historic, but I think is a beautiful backdrop for this story.”

Once diehard fans of other female Rap stars caught wind of Halle’s comments, they flooded her social media handles with criticism.

Look inside to see how she responded to the hoopla.

Hot on the promo trail for the forthcoming Netflix venture, Halle hit up ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Monday (November 15). When quizzed on the backlash from her high praise of Cardi, Berry replied (at the 7:07 mark in the video above):

“You know, I do [stand by my comments], but here’s the thing: there’s room for more than one queen people,” she said on the late night talk show. “That’s what we need to know. Nicki [Minaj] is a queen in her own right. H.E.R. is a queen. All these ladies to me are queens. There can always be more than one.”


Halle isn’t the only one responding to the ruckus.  Look below to see what Cardi said about it.

    To each is own. Cardi is NOT a Queen! You find Cardi’s in ur local hood, on reality TV or p/o/r/n sites performing s/e/x work.

    • True Tea November 17, 2021

      You can find*

      • Danny Bey November 17, 2021

        Imagine trying to shade Cardi but fail cuz you can’t type. Clowns really do write their own jokes 😭😭😭

    • True Tea November 17, 2021

      Shade??? I think you meant FACTS!! Imagine not knowing the difference between an artist & a mush mouth stripper bih who should hire an interpreter instead of a fuggin ghost writer.

      BUT let’s talk about a typo….

      The nerve!!!

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 17, 2021

        You’re a FLOP lmaoooooooooo 🤣

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 17, 2021

      *To each HIS own

      You dumb b****. Still can’t get the phrases right yet you’re still claiming you give that “True Tea.” Sit down, hater.

      • True Tea November 17, 2021

        I said what I said & couldn’t care less. You’re always pressed…so my phrases are well understood.

        Worry about becoming a “queen” because you’re not…B*TCH!!

        No matter how many times you say it.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 17, 2021

        Fake Pîss, everyone dragging you lmaoooooooooo 🤣

      • True Tea November 17, 2021


        Who is dragging me boo?? There is no smoke or fire in here.

    • KenDoll November 17, 2021

      S*** shaming Cardi B because of her past as a stripper because you’re bitter that she took Nicki Minaj’s spot and is dominating right now is sad. The barbs are going out real bad chile.

      • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 17, 2021

        Drag that Fake Pîss!

      • True Tea November 17, 2021


        When Cardi B was talkin’ sh** about Candace Owens & bringing up her past, was she bitter?? If Cardi can do it, so can I.

        Hun Nicki Minaj has had a successful career & is living her best life. And so what Cardi is on top now….so is LNX. You h/o/e/s think being on top means we’re suppose to look at an artist differently. No ma’am!!!

        Here’s some advice….If you don’t want people speaking negativity about your favorite artist, tell them to stop releasing their disposable music.

        Problem solved!!!

    • Danny Bey November 17, 2021

      The way your being ratio’d in this thread is a kii

  3. Tino November 17, 2021

    Mfs better not disrespect a TRUE Queen which is Halle Berrrryyy, Halle Berry.

  4. Scoopz November 17, 2021

    The most iconic hip hop queens of the past 25 years are Lil Kim and Missy Elliot. Nicki been killing it for over a decade now, so has had the most impact and success of the newer female MC’s, although shes let beef chip into her popularity and momentum the past couple years. Cardis been popular the past few years but she aint had the impact of Nicki overall. Only time will tell if she can become a true Hip Hop icon. Nicki remains the current Queen of Hip Hop, so Cardi can be a duchess or something for now. 🥴

    • Section8DaGreat November 17, 2021

      Child Nicki’s career was kicked off by beef with Lil Kim so that’s always been apart of her schtick. Whenever she needs an extra push in her career she starts beef. She’s a joke.

  5. , I hate fghffggvc November 17, 2021

    Halle berry movie just couldn’t afford Nicki Minaj

    • KenDoll November 17, 2021

      Nicki Minaj wasnt asked. Halle wanted Cardi B, the Queen Of Rap. get over it

      • I hate hdfjbfxhb November 17, 2021

        She couldn’t afford Nicki like I said

  6. KenDoll November 17, 2021

    Cardi B is the current reigning Queen Of Hip-Hop. She is the most influential, highest selling, and record-breaking female rapper of the past FIVE years and that is a fact.
    Nicki Minaj did a photoshoot and article with Rolling Stone Magazine where they crowned her the “New Queen Of Hip Hop” before her debut album came out and everybody told Lil’ Kim to sit down and make room for the new girl so imma need y’all to keep the same energy and stop being bitter.

    • Shayla Queen™ 👑 November 17, 2021

      This 💯

    • Section8DaGreat November 17, 2021

      And I thank you!!!

  7. Liam November 17, 2021

    That’s Halle’s opinion..why is it a problem 😳

  8. Lou November 17, 2021

    You guys delusional if you say Cardi is the queen of hip hop LOOOOOOOL

  9. Allah’ade November 19, 2021

    The first thing we must REmember: a whoe will always honor a whoe. And due to the dumb down posture of lowering the female psykhe to her sxxuality we, the people, have been DEsensitized to immoral behaviour, thought media & word. Sow Let us with the [3rd] Eye to perceive, the ear to hear & the tongue to speak power [to lies] always STRANGLE these PollyWannaBeKneegroes who demean Hip Hop & Black Kulture while spawning eurocentrickery. Miss ann, the actress, has NO voice NO authority in the world of Hip Hop or music and should be SILENCED, ostracized and like M.O.P. said, “MASHED OUT!”…. And Eye Said What Eye Said.♥️🖤💚

    Many people think that the previous rap queen must be Missy Elliott and Nicki Minaj is really the better successor.

    I didn’t have any expectations concerning that title, but the more I was astonished. The author did a great job. I spent a few minutes reading and checking the facts. Everything is very clear and understandable. I like posts that fill in your knowledge gaps. This one is of the sort.
