The beef between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj has escalated into a physical altercation.  

According to USA Today, the two New York-based rappers were attending the Harper's Bazaar Icons party Friday night when Cardi B threw a shoe and lunged at the "Chun-Li" artist.

The altercation was initiated by comments Nicki made about Cardi's parenting skills and child, Kulture, according to an Instagram post Cardi shared after the incident:

Moments later, Nicki could be seen blowing kisses to a crowd of people and unfazed by the situation.
