LOS ANGELES, CA – Nicki Minaj and Cardi B are reportedly both performing during BET Experience at L.A. Live in June. According to Billboard, BET announced several concerts will be held June 20 through June 22 at the Staples Center.
BET was astute enough to book perceived rivals Nicki and Cardi on separate days. Nicki, Lil Wayne, Tory Lanez, Trippie Redd and Bri Steves will perform on June 21, while Cardi, Migos, Lil Yachty, Lil Baby and City Girls will perform on June 22.
The bad blood between Nicki and Cardi’s reached its boiling point last September during New York Fashion Week when Cardi allegedly threw a shoe at Black Barbie. Cardi later aired out her grievances with Nicki during an extended Instagram rant, while Nicki offered $100,000 to anyone who had footage of the fight.
Although they appeared to end things on a peaceful note, there’s still lingering tension surrounding them.
But, as they say, the show must go on.
V.I.P. tickets for the BET Experience go on sale Wednesday (January 30) at 2 p.m. ET and general tickets go on sale Friday (February 1). The event also includes the BET Fan Fest at the Los Angeles Convention Center, which includes a celebrity basketball game, celebrity meet and greets and seminars.
The 2019 BET Awards take place on June 23.
