Cardi B just did what she does best: speak her mind and tell off the haters. Here's what the Grammy-winner had to say about the Twitterverse hating on Lil' Kim.

We can always count on Cardi to keep it real - and stand up for women in the music industry. The mom-of-two previously called out Lizzo haters, and now she's back at it standing up for Lil' Kim. Cardi quote-tweeted artist Edidion, who also wrote in defense of the rap legend. He posted, "Watching @LilKim get bullied, mocked, and disrespected by thousands of people online is really upsetting. The other day it was because of her halftime performance, and now it's because of a role she played in a movie. At what point will this weird hate bandwagon for Lil' Kim end?"

And Cardi obviously added her two cents on the whole ordeal. "I'm tired of it and it's heartbreaking...She's is so sweet ,supportive and a REAL F*CKIN LEGEND ..I remember when I used to beef wit bitches and I used to put on my MySpace her song F*CK YOU! I think it gotta be these 2000's born kids on this app that don't know about sh*t!" the I Like It singer tweeted.

And things didn't end there. Cardi also responded to an accusation that the "only time it's beneficial to support [Lil' Kim] is on Twitter." The 29-year-old shut that down real quick: Cardi made sure the Twitter user understood exactly who decides when and with who she collabs. She also emphasized that just because the two icons haven't worked together doesn't mean cyberbullying is acceptable.

"What do a collab go to do with someone constantly getting CYBER BULLY?" Cardi questioned. "Before a artist I am a woman wit feelings and I know how much it hurts to constantly get picked on...When I collab wit her is going to be at the right time & the right song.I don't rush BIG MOMENTS!"

She continued in another tweet, "I don't rush things and I say this in all my interviews.Until I don't have the right song for a artist I'm not going to rush it cause if the song don't make sense and it don't do good then I will feel terrible..It don't take away from her greatest."

Here's to hoping the new year brings along that perfect song so we can see Cardi and Lil' Kim give us the performance of a lifetime.
