Move over Simon Cowell.

Cardi B confirmed she'll be a judge on Netflix's new show Rhythm + Flow. Think X Factor but about 10000% cooler. The Money rapper will be joined by Chance The Rapper and T.I. for the music competition, which will kick off in 2019.

Cardi, Chance and T.I. will be searching for the next break out hip hop sensation and will visit their hometowns of Chicago, Atlanta and New York for auditions. Cardi said she was looking for a "diamond in the rough" to take part in the 10-part series, which has been produced by John Legend’s production company, Get Lifted.

However, people don't think Cardi is "qualified" to be a judge on the show.

She's been accused of not writing her own raps and Cardi's musical success is still very new. Cardi B's nemesis Nicki Minaj was a judge on American Idol in 2013 too (OMG, remember her hilarious beef with Mariah Carey! Whew...) so of course, people couldn't help but compare the two.

But the Bardi Gang were quick to defend their Queen.

Of course, Cardi had a lil message for anyone who was doubting her judging credentials too. I mean, has she ever backed down from a fight?

"Bitch I make fucking good music," she declared in an Instagram video. "I make hits, hits, hits, hits… We wanna find you, we wanna discover you. I don't give a fuck if you think I’m not qualified to judge. Bitch I make good fucking music."
