If you thought Cardi B is letting Offset off the hook for his infidelity so easily, think again! Cardi B is threatening to make Offset go Eric Benet if he pulls another stunt again.
While onstage at the Holiday Hip Hop Festival in Mississippi on Thursday night, Cardi let her fans know that she is just not ignoring offset’s scandal.
I let a n****a know, though,” she said, pausing for dramatic effect. “You do that s*** again….you gon’ lose your wife!” The “Bodak Yellow” rapper set the record straight before kicking off a performance of her newest single “Bartier Cardi.”
The line was pulled straight out of Beyoncé’s playbook, who warned Jay Z with the same message on Lemonade’s “Don’t Hurt Yourself.” Where she sings, “Uh, this is your final warning, You know I give you life, If you try this sh*t again, You gon lose your wife.”
Migos was also billed to perform, so there’s little doubt Offset heard her message. Earlier this week, news of Offset’s cheating scandal went public when his iCloud was hacked, leaking snippets of a Cardi sex tape and footage of an alleged Offset affair. While the couple have since claimed to be on solid ground, their union was once again put to the test after Offset was accused of fathering an illegitimate child with a notorious Instagram model named Celina Powell.
JAY-Z coined the phrase “Never go Eric Benét” on his single “Kill JAY-Z” off his 4:44 album. “You almost went Eric Benét, Let the baddest girl in the world get away, I don’t even know what else to say, Ni**a, never go Eric Benét!” Hov raps. Hopefully, Offset heeds the lessons from Jay’s 4:44.
