Cardi B has come under fire from New Jersey rappers Mir Pesos and Mir Fontane after they claimed on Friday that her new song Up ripped off their track Stuck.

But the 28-year-old WAP rapper denied their claims and even shared video that appeared to show her rapping part of her song back in August 2020.

Early on Friday, Mir Pesos tweeted a clip of Cardi’s Up video which was edited together with an excerpt from his low-budget Stuck video.

The two song’s appear to have somewhat similar minimalist beats, along with some nearly identical lines.

In Up, Cardi sings, ‘If it’s up, then it’s up, then it’s up, then it’s stuck,’ whereas Fontane raps, ‘If it’s up then it’s stuck. Up then it’s stuck, yeah.’

In contrast to Cardi’s candy-colored video, the Pesos and Fontaine video appeared to have been filmed in an apartment kitchen.

‘We want my money,’ Pesos added in his tweet while tagging Cardi and Fontaine.

As of Friday, Stuck has over 31,000 views on YouTube, whereas Cardi’s Up video has 9.2 million views. 

Call out: 'We want my money,' Pesos tweeted along with a video that juxtaposed Cardi's new song with their low-budget track

On Instagram, Pesos posted the two videos side by side, writing, ‘Mannn somebody tagg they them ppl tell to get with my ppl. 

He added: ‘They stealing.’

But Cardi attempted to clear her name by sharing a video which she claimed dated back to August 7.

‘From AUGUST 7TH now check when the other n**** posted his song. I BEEN WORKING ON THIS. Sorry lil boy never Hurd of you,’ she captioned the clip.

The video appears to show Cardi repeatedly shouting, ‘Up and it’s stuck!’

August 7 marked the release of her monster hit WAP with Megan Thee Stallion, who was also featured in the split-screen clip.

Pesos and Fontane’s song Stuck wasn’t released until September, but Fontane claimed the rappers had shared a preview of the song on YouTube on August 6, according to Page Six.

Representatives for the Bodak Yellow rapper have yet to comment, but she appeared to reference the allegations during an Instagram Live session.

‘I am the type of person, I don’t like going to court…’ she began

‘If I jack something from somebody,’ she would pay up, she continued

Later, she seemed to urge Fontane and Pesos to make their complaints official.

‘If you’re feeling a certain type of way, we can take it to court. I don’t give a f**k… Get the f**k out of here,’ she said dismissively.

As for the possibility that the songs had similar beats, Cardi clarified that she’s not a producer, or the person who usually creates the music for hip hop songs. 

Fighting words: 'If you’re feeling a certain type of way, we can take it to court. I don’t give a f**k… Get the f**k out of here,' Cardi threatened on Instagram Live on Friday

It comes just days after Cardi teased the single, posing in nothing but pink pasties for the cover art.

Cardi recently said on YouTube that she ‘wanted a more hood song,’ adding: ‘I thought that my last song was more sexy… I wanted to do something more gangster, more cocky.’

In a new interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, the star admitted that she was feeling ‘nervous’ about releasing the music video, which has already sparked a buzz among her fans and detractors.

She said: ‘I’m good, but I’m very nervous. Oh my gosh. This week has been a really… Not a bad week, but a bad week for my nerves. I’ve been waking up early. I haven’t been able to eat, I’ve been like…Well, I don’t know.

‘I feel like I get criticized a lot, and scrutinized, so it’s just like everything… Everything. I always feel like I’ve got to be super, super, super perfect. I’m a Libra, so everybody’s opinion always counts to me.’

Speaking about how she approaches releasing new music, she explained: ‘My last song was very sexual, very sexual, so I always want my next songs to be different than the one before.

‘If a topic on one of my songs is money, the other topic, I want it to be about something else. When I started rapping, when I first put music out, like my mixtape, it was all… This might sound crazy, but I got really inspired by Drill Chicago music.

‘I was young, and I liked that and everything, so my mixtape was very all about gangster violence. If it’s up, then it’s stuck. That’s where I wanted to take it with this record.’

On the public’s reaction to WAP, which dominated the airwaves last summer, she said: ‘I was just really surprised. I was just so surprised, because everybody was raging. Like, “Oh my god. This song is so freaky and nasty.”

‘Even when I hear it, I’d be like, “This song, to me, is not as nasty and freaky,” because I grew up listening to freaky-ass rappers. I grew up with Lil’ Kim, Trina… Khia, Foxy, everybody. I feel like this is really mild, but I don’t know.

‘Nowadays, people just want to rave about everything. I feel because people have been wanting me and Megan to collab, so when a record like that was too freaky… I guess they wasn’t really expecting that, or something.’

However, the song also garnered much criticism, particularly from prominent Republicans on US cable networks.

Addressing, the backlash, she said: ‘I mean, because nowadays, people are just more open about their sexuality and everything. When WAP came out, the people that was criticizing it the most, they were like, “This is so nasty. This is so freaky.

‘I don’t even think it was like, I don’t know, religious people. It was really a lot of Republicans. Like, big Republicans. Not like senators… Like that. It was literally like those motherf***ers that got blue checks on Twitter.

‘They are big influencers. It’s just like, “Out of anything that y’all could have talked about…” Since, like I said, I was endorsing. I used to endorse Bernie [Sanders], and then Joe Biden. 

‘They was just trying to figure a way out to pick on me. Like, “Oh, Joe Biden, is this the girl you were doing an interview with? The girl that’s talking about WAP? That’s what you want America to be influenced by?”

‘It’s like, “Bro, come on, now.” It was just a lot. I couldn’t believe it. When I saw that, when I saw Fox News talking so bad about WAP, I was like, “Are you serious? Really?”’

Having to spend time in lockdown alongside much of the rest of the world, Cardi B admitted that she struggled to write songs of substance while shut away from the outside world for an extended period of time. 

She said: ‘I feel like I need a couple of more songs. I need… I don’t know. I need, like, eight more songs, and I need more things to happen. I just need more things to happen.

‘It’s like after I drop this record and I see what’s going on, I’m going to put it in my music, too. I don’t know. It’s hard, right now, also, to do music when nothing is happening. We’re not doing nothing. What can I rap about? 

‘You’re not really doing s**t. And I’m not a person that likes to talk about my sensitive feelings. I don’t like to always rap about when I’m super sad and everything. It’s really hard to express certain feelings that I’ve got inside of me. 

‘It’s really hard for me to express that. When it comes to love, and when it comes to emotions, when it comes to things that I have to deal with, it’s really hard for me to even talk about it to certain people, so it’s really hard to put it in the music and everything, but it’s just… I don’t know. I always debate myself. “Do I really want people to know everything that I be feeling?”’
