Of course, there may be some fans confused by this anime-centric turn, but hip hop has a long tradition of shouting out Japanese pop culture. In fact, artists like Hopsin, Childish Gambino, and many others have referenced anime in their work. Not long ago, Jaden Smith stepped up to release his own tribute to anime with a track calledGoku”. The song borrows its name from Son Goku, the iconic protagonist of Dragon Ball, and the EDM track sees Smith rap about how he feels like he’s going off like Goku. Smith is just one of dozens to reference the Saiyan in their verses, and other shonen heroes like Naruto and Monkey D. Luffy have been namedropped as well.

The clip begins with Cardi B on the sea with a slew of traditional Japanese folklore characters. She heads to the stage next before Cardi B takes a shot at Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift. As the music video continues, the star tries everything from karaoke to to shopping and sushi sampling. The video cuts off after Cardi’s section as J Balvin and Bad Bunny don’t enjoy the pleasure of being featured in the video.

The anime-inspired music video was handled by Ruka Noguchi, and the artist’s distinct aesthetic is hard to overlook here. The director teamed up with animator Yasuhiro Yamashita to bring this reel to life, and it gives an entirely new flavor to Cardi B’s latin-pop track.

While Cardi B does not name any particular anime inI Like It,” her new music video is based on a culture where hip hop has inspired a lot of inspiration. In the past, Kanye West also did it with his Akira-inspired video forStronger,” and it seems that Cardi B is helping to continue that legacy for future artists.

Among other things, B Challenges her better half Offset to a Rap Battle with High Stakes. Cardi laid down the challenge on Instagram, telling her fans that they can tune in on November 29 a 12 PM.

While the lyricism may not be all there in this next feud, this might end up being interesting. The most recent battle we enjoyed was between Joyner Lucas and Tory Lanez, and that might not be over yet. Pusha T and Drake also exchanged a few heated tracks this year. This year has been extremely impressive for the two artists and now, they have a chance to go up against one another to prove who has the best bars.

Whoever loses the battle will have to buy all the Christmas decorations for their houses in Atlanta and New York. We’re sure both of them can afford to spend a couple thousand on holiday decorations but this is still a pretty big deal.
