Cardi B and Nicki Minaj: A Brief History of Their Tumultuous Relationship

The explosive altercation between rap queens Nicki Minaj and Cardi B Friday at a New York Fashion Week event is the culmination of a feud that has been simmering for well over a year.

Read on to better understand what exactly caused the 25-year-old Invasion of Privacy star to lash out, and what the Queen Barbie, 35, has to say about it.

March 2017

The first hints of tension between the pair began in the spring of 2017, when Minaj appeared to “like” a fan’s Instagram comment dismissing one of Cardi B’s rap verses as “Dumb ass bars.” However, many users were quick to observe that this “like” could have been the result of Photoshop fakery or an account hack.

Whatever the case, Minaj seemingly “liked” a tweet saying that the social media diss was faked.

May 2017

On “Swish Swish,” Katy Perry‘s diss track reportedly aimed at longtime nemesis Taylor Swift, fans picked up on some shade coming from Minaj’s direction. “Silly rap beefs just get me more checks / My life is a movie, I’m never off set / Me and my amigos (no, not Offset),” she rapped on her guest verse. Some speculated that Cardi was not happy with the line — particularly the bit that shouted out her man.

Soon after the song’s release, Cardi unleashed a series of impassioned tirades on Instagram Live. Though she didn’t mention names, many believed they were directed at Minaj.

“I hate this s—, I really, really do. A bitch like me, I was happier when I was macking in the hood. This s— right here is so fake,” she said during one livestream, according to Billboard. “When I used to be a regular bitch from the Bronx — a hood bitch — when somebody used to be fake to me it was cool because I could approach a bitch and punch her right in her closure… Now that I’m in the industry, you don’t work like that, just have to watch s— go, watch s— go. You gotta see people play you and just say nothing like a dick. That s— is so wack my n—alike that s— be breaking my heart because the people, your idols, become rivals.”

June 2017 

For any fans foolish enough to pit her against Minaj, Cardi B posted a handy reminder on Twitter that summer.

August 2017

The feud appeared to heat up when Cardi performed her ubiquitous summer hit “Bodak Yellow” during a festival at MoMA’s PS1 in Queens. “You know this bitch she never f—ing liked me,” she said from the stage, “and all of a sudden she want to be friends with me — no, bitch … I still don’t like you bitch.”

Later that month, Minaj was featured on the track “No Flags’ with 21 Savage and Offset. Her verse raised the eyebrows of some fans who believe that it referenced — who else? — Cardi. “I heard these labels are trying to make another me / Everything you’re getting little hoe is because of me.”

Dropping shortly after Cardi B had signed her mega-deal with Atlantic Records, the line was certainly suspicious. However, Minaj diffused the rumors herself on Twitter, sharing that she’d written the verse long before she ever knew the ex-Love and Hip Hop star.

Cardi weighed in as well just a few hours later, offering a comment that can either be viewed as a brush-off of fans playing the pair against one another — or a slam against Minaj.

During an interview at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards in late August, Cardi did her best to bury the rumors of a feud. “I mean, I don’t really want problems with anybody,” she told Billboard. “I don’t want to be, like, queen. I don’t wanna be no this. I don’t wanna be no that. I just wanna make music and make money. I really don’t have time to look at other women, what they doing. I’m myself, you know what I’m saying? Nobody got a problem with me. I don’t got a problem with them. If somebody got a problem I don’t really got to do that whole industry beef. Like, you know, I get it popping with these hands.”

September 2017

Cardi took a verse on the G-Eazy song “No Limit,” which many felt was a dig at Minaj, who’d been the reigning rap queen for the better part of a decade. “My career takin’ off / These hoes jogging in place / Swear these hoes run they mouth / How these hoes out of shape? / Can you stop with all the subs? / Bitch I ain’t Jared.”

During Cardi’s appearance on The Breakfast Club radio show soon after the song’s release, host Charlamagne tha God asked her directly whether she had beef with Minaj. Cardi denied it, saying, “She ain’t never f—ed my man.”

The pair appeared to make nice after “Bodak Yellow” topped the chart, making Cardi the first solo female rapper to do so since Lauryn Hill nearly 20 years earlier. Minaj, who many felt was on track to nab the honor herself, sent Cardi a congratulatory tweet.

October 2017

If you assumed that having Cardi and Minaj on the same song would squash their rumored feud, then you are sorely mistaken. The track “MotorSport” began as a joint collaboration between the Queen Barbie and Quavo, but then the Offset rapper invited his bandmates and Cardi B into the mix. Minaj took to Twitter and, in a series of since-deleted tweets, insisted that the addition did not go against her wishes, and urged conspiracy theories to “relax” and “breathe.”

Things got messier when it became known that Minaj’s verse was altered prior to release. Cardi admitted as much during an interview Capital Xtra, saying, “When I heard the track, her verse wasn’t finished. It was not the verse that is on right now.”

The line “If Quavo the QB, I’m Nick Lombardi” — a reference to famed football coach Vince Lombardi — was originally “If Cardi the QB, I’m Nick Lombardi.” Minaj later claimed that Cardi’s name was changed at the insistence of her label, Atlantic.

When the big-budget music video dropped weeks later, fans noticed that Minaj and Cardi failed to appear in the same scenes. “We tried to create that moment…you dig?” Quavo insisted during an interview with host Ebro Darden on his Beats 1 radio show.

In a further interview with Ebro the following April, Minaj claimed that a scheduling conflict with her hairdresser prohibited her from attending the video shoot on the same day as Cardi. “You know, if I don’t show up they’re gonna act like I’m doing it to be mean, because of the current Nicki hate train,” she says she told her hair stylist at the time.

December 2017

The Christmas season seemingly didn’t foster goodwill between the two rap queens. As the Barbz ganged up on Cardi, accusing her of jacking their idol’s style with the music video for “No Limit,” Minaj herself couldn’t resist chiming in.

April 2018

The feud remained relatively quiet throughout the winter of 2018, but then returned with vengeance following back-to-back interviews on Beats 1. Cardi went first, telling Ebro Darden that there was no bad blood between Minaj and herself.

“I just feel like it’s really internet-made-up,” she said. “I really feel like fans and people, they really want to see that happened, because it’s really entertaining to see people beef. It’s entertaining. Like, I ain’t gonna front, when Nicki and Remy was beefing, everyone was tuning and asking, ‘What’s next? What’s next?’…But I don’t really have the time for that. If you not f—ing my man, or if you’re not taking my money from me, if you’re not stopping my money, then I don’t really give a f— about you.”

Minaj followed up several weeks later with a tearful interview with Zayn Lowe, saying that she felt “ambushed” by Cardi B’s comments in the press following the “MotorSport” verse-changing controversy.

“The only thing with Cardi that really, really, really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after ‘MotorSport’ came out,” she said. “The first interview she did after ‘MotorSport’ came out, it just really hurt me. She looked so aggravated and angry and the only thing she said was, ‘Oh, I didn’t hear that. I didn’t hear that verse.’ I was like, what?”

She continued, saying that many, including those she considers her close friends, declined to come to her defense when she was being portrayed as a villain in the press and on social media. “That really, really hurt me. I really, fully supported and up until this recent interview I did, I had never seen her show me genuine love in an interview and I can imagine how many girls wish they could’ve been on a song with Nicki Minaj.”

May 2018

Minaj and Cardi exchanged cordial words on the red carpet of the 2018 Met Gala, indicating to many that the frosty relations may have thawed.

Cardi touched on this apparent détente during her appearance on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM show.

“I never was feuding with anybody; there was a misunderstanding,” she said. “I think she felt a certain type of way about something. I definitely felt a certain type of way about something. I didn’t wanna ever talk about it in public because I felt like we gonna see each other again and we will talk about it, and it’s always, like, little issues. The thing is, it’s always little issues, but you know, fans are always gonna make it a big thing. I spoke to her about it. I spoke to her at the Met Gala about it, and it’s just like, see? It’s just something that had to be talked about because it was an issue.”

August 2018

The tables turned in August, as Minaj invited Ebro onto her new show, Queen Radio. The Beats 1 host brought up the Cardi feud (and Remy Ma, but that’s another story), much to the “Chun-Li” rapper’s chagrin. “Can we please move on?” she groaned, before ultimately offering a response. “I didn’t know Cardi and I had an issue. To me, she may have taken an issue with things that I’ve said, but I’m not going to bite my tongue…You gotta have thick skin. People talk s— about me all the time. I don’t go around and tell people to stop posting me because I see one bad thing about myself.”

She continued, “You can’t be expected to be liked and loved and praised all the f—ing time. Give me a break. You coming into the wrong game if you want people to kiss your ass and suck your dick all day, my n—. Like, come on.”

The tough love apparently didn’t go down well with Cardi, who commented on Twitter about being blocked by an unnamed person.

Crafty fans discovered that it did indeed appear that Cardi had been blocked by her rival.

September 2018

The cold war finally boiled over into an all-out physical assault at Harper’s Bazaar’s ICONS party on Sept. 7.

An insider told PEOPLE that Cardi arrived at the New York Fashion Week event first. After Minaj showed up, there was an “altercation” on the second-floor balcony during a Christina Aguilera performance.

“The scene was f—ing crazy,” the insider tells PEOPLE. “It was entourage against entourage.”

“They had their altercation on the second-floor balcony, right above the red carpet. All of the sudden there was a big commotion and everyone didn’t know what was going on.”

Another source told PEOPLE that “there was tension” between the performers beforehand and that “everyone was waiting for them to meet.”

The source explained, “It all happened 20 seconds after Kelly Rowland left Nicki Minaj — she was in between them.”

While the insider said it initially looked like Cardi and Minaj “might hug it out” inside the party, suddenly “it all went down.”

“Cardi walked towards Nicki and all of a sudden Cardi started screaming something about her child. She was yelling, ‘Bitch you feisty. Bitch don’t talk s— about my child’ at Nicki,” the source recalled about Cardi, who is mom to 8-week-old daughter Kulture Kiari with husband Offset.

The source said that Minaj had eight or nine bodyguards, while Cardi had two people. “There was no chance Cardi could get through, but that didn’t stop her. She kept trying,” the source said. “She threw her shoe because she couldn’t get through, but it only hit one of the bodyguards. It did not hit Nicki Minaj.” (Reps for the rappers did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s requests for comment.)

Immediately following the incident, Cardi was escorted out by security while Minaj stayed inside. Cardi was seen leaving the party with a large lump on her forehead but no shoes.

She left barefoot with her dress ripped and butt out,” source said. Cardi was wearing a red Dolce & Gabbana gown.

A defiant Minaj, meanwhile, blew kisses to fans (and possibly her haters) as she exited the venue.

Cardi later wrote a long scathing Instagram post which she entitled “PERIOD.” It did not mention Minaj by name, but suggested she had tried to sabotage Cardi’s career and also spoken badly about Kulture Kiari.

“I’ve let a lot of s— slide! I let you sneak diss me, I let you lie on me, I let you attempt to stop my bags, f— up the way I eat! You’ve threaten other artists in the industry, told them if they work with me you’ll stop f—ing with them!! I let you talk big s— about me!!” she wrote.

Minaj declined to press charges but seemingly addressed the fight in a video shared to Instagram, in which she mugs for the camera as her Queen song “Hard White” plays. The track contains lyrics, not captured in the video, that may be about Cardi.

“I ain’t never played a hoe position,” Minaj raps. “I ain’t ever have to strip to get the pole position. Hoes is dissin’? Okay, these hoes is wishin’. You’re in no position to come for O’s position.”

The O references Minaj’s real name Onika, and Cardi has been open about her past as a stripper. In May 2018, Cardi told Cosmopolitan, “People say, ‘Why do you always got to say that you used to be a stripper? We get it.’ Because y’all don’t respect me because of it, and y’all going to respect these strippers from now on.”

On Monday, Minaj addressed the altercation on her Queen Radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1, according to Pitchfork. “The other night I was part of something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch upper echelon… people who have their life together,” she said. “I was in a Gaultier gown — off the motherf—ing runway — and I could not believe how humiliated it all felt,” she continued.

Minaj also went on to deny that she had ever spoken ill of Cardi’s infant daughter. “I just want people to know that Onika Tanya Maraj has never, will never… speak ill on anyone’s child. I am not a clown. That’s clown s—,” Minaj continued, using her full name.

She also went on to clarify why she waited a few days to speak about the incident. Addressing Cardi, Minaj remarked that since “you knew that when that footage came out, you was about to look f—ing dumb,” Cardi and her publicist “hurried up and put out a statement” right away. “I’m such an ill-ass bitch I didn’t even feel the need to defend myself that night,” Minaj added.

Best of Frenemies: A Brief History of Han and Lando’s Relationship on Screen

With Lando Calrissian returning to screens next month in Solo: A Star Wars Story, we thought it would be a good time to look back at one of the most popular characters in the franchise. And detail his relationship with best frenemy Han Solo.

Though be warned, while Lando has appeared in novels, comics, video games, and animated shows, this feature will simply be dealing with his exploits in the movies.

Losing the Millennium Falcon

The Millennium Falcon.

Lando Calrissian became a smuggler and a gambler early in life, and made money playing a card game called sabacc. He wore a pretty badass cape, fired a badass X-8 Night Sniper blaster, and cruised the galaxy on a badass ship called the Millenium Falcon, which could make “the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.”

But Lando was to lose his beloved ship in a game of sabacc with old sparring partner Han Solo, an equally disreputable smuggler and gambler. Who may or may not have cheated to win the booty. We’d bet smart money on that game playing out in the new movie.

Following the loss of his precious ship, Lando went straight. Kind of. He gave up a life of crime to become the administrator of Cloud City, a gas installation near Bespin, where he endeavoured to avoid the attentions of the Empire. But it was easier said than done…

Lando Betrays Han

During The Empire Strikes Back, Darth Vader and Boba Fett journey to Cloud City to make Lando an offer he can’t refuse; set a trap for his old friend Han or risk the wrath of the Empire. With little choice, Lando agrees to do the former.

When Han arrives on Cloud City, Lando initially pretends to be angry for past transgressions, but quickly drops the act, welcoming Solo, Leia and Chewbacca with open arms.

The betrayal is soon revealed in one of the saddest scenes in the series however, with Vader taking the Rebels prisoner, while Lando looks on, ashamed.

Calrissian quickly sees the error of his ways, with Vader changing the terms of the deal, refusing to let Leia and Chewie leave Cloud City, and torturing Han before freezing him in carbonite. All of which lights a fire inside Calrissian, who at the end of the film vows to save his old friend.

Lando Rescues Han

Badass cape.

At the start of Return of the Jedi, Lando has infiltrated Jabba the Hutt‘s palace, where the frozen Han hangs as barbaric decoration. Calrissian is working undercover as a palace guard, and wearing a mask to protect his identity.

He stays in disguise throughout the opening sequence, only revealing himself when Luke Skywalker’s plan is in full swing, and the palace party has moved to the Great Pit of Carkoon.

Unfortunately, while freeing prisoners and fighting fellow guards, Lando ends up on the edge of the deadly pit himself, with his own life in danger. So while he pretty much saves Han at the start of the movie, almost immediately Solo is rescuing him, blasting a sarlaac tentacle so Lando can escape its clutches.

Lando and Han Save the Galaxy

Nien Nunb and Lando.

Later in the movie, Lando offers to lead the attack on the second Death Star, and is made General of the Rebel Alliance. Because, as he puts it, “Somone must have told them about my little manoeuvre at the Battle of Taanab.”

Together he and Han mount a two-pronged attack on Darth Vader’s weapon of mass destruction. So while Solo is busy disabling the Death Star’s protective shield in the Battle of Endor, Calrissian is in space, back behind the controls of the Millennium Falcon. Which he promises to return to Han without a scratch.

Lando co-pilots the craft alongside adorable Sullustan Nien Numb, and together they take out scores of TIE Fighters while waiting for Solo to complete his mission. Han duly takes out the shield, and Lando fires a shot into the super-weapon’s reactor core. Starting a chain reaction that ultimately destroys the Death Star.

Calrissian speeds away from the explosion, though in the process his craft takes a knock and loses its sensor dish. Meaning that Lando and Han save the galaxy together, but the Falcon returns with a very definite scratch.

Solo: A Star Wars Story — which stars Donald Glover as the young Lando Calrissian — hits screens on May 24, when we’ll find out how the two scoundrels first became friends.

A Brief History of Sport and Politics on the Korean Peninsula

At the tail end of September, in a tiny arena in a skiing town near Germany’s Bavarian Alps, two North Korean figure skaters put in the performance of their careers to earn qualification for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Kim Ju-sik, 25, and Ryom Tae-ok, 18, glided across the ice — to “Je ne suis qu’une chanson,” an anthem by Canadian diva Ginette Reno — and logged a career-best total score of 180.09 points.

Two months later, Pyongyang test-fired a Hwasong-15 missile, boasting that it was capable of striking the continental United States. Then, in his New Year’s address, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un spoke of a “nuclear button” on his desk that put “the whole territory of the U.S. within the range of our nuclear strike.” U.S. President Donald Trump responded in kind, boasting of the size and potency of his own nuclear button.

In a year of saber-rattling and nuclear brinkmanship, the two figure skaters — the only North Koreans so far to qualify for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea — provided a rare glimmer of positive news from the pariah nation. This Tuesday, diplomats from Seoul and Pyongyang met at the border-straddling town of Panmunjom for the first high-level talks between the countries since 2015. Top of their public agenda: Olympic cooperation.

North Korea has won a total of 56 medals since it first participated in the Olympics in 1964 and two of those have come at the Winter Games, the BBC reports. But beyond the tables and tallies, sports competitions have provided opportunities for both rupture and repair in relations between Seoul and Pyongyang.

Here is a look at how sport and politics have intersected — at times with tragic and even deadly consequences — on the Korean Peninsula.

The attack on Flight 858

When South Korea’s capital Seoul was awarded the 1988 Summer Olympics in 1981, it caused consternation on the other side of the DMZ. Pyongyang initially campaigned to co-host the competition with Seoul, the BBC reports. But when that didn’t work, North Korea not only boycotted the games — it used terrorism to try and sabotage them.

In a shocking bid to deter foreigners from traveling to the games, two North Korean agents planted a bomb on Korean Air Flight 858 in November 1987 The plane exploded above the Andaman Sea, killing all 115 people onboard.

“I was told by a senior officer that before the Seoul Olympics we would take down a South Korean airliner,” surviving assassin Kim Hyun-hui told the BBC in a 2013 interview. “He said it would create chaos and confusion in South Korea. The mission would strike a severe blow for the revolution.”

Clandestine workhouses

North Korea was not the only nation that offered to host the 1988 Olympics after it had been awarded to Seoul in ’81. Rival cities argued that Seoul would not be ready. Critics also feared that then-dictator Chun Doo-hwan would launch a bloody crackdown on the pro-democracy movement that was gathering steam. Los Angeles — the venue for the 1984 Games — even proposed hosting a second successive competition.

As it was, the international scrutiny that came with the Olympics was credited with restraining Chun’s hand, and paved the way for the country’s first free elections in 1987. South Korea has been a democratic nation since.

The Olympics were heralded as an unbridled success, rebranding Seoul as the capital of a modern, dynamic country, and shaking loose some of the grim associations of the 1950-53 war. The year 1988 was “basically the coming-out party for Korea on the world stage”, Lee Charm, former head of the Korea National Tourism Agency told the South China Morning Post in 2015.

But human rights abuses still lurked under the gleaming stadia. The capital’s facelift involved the displacement of hundreds of thousands of people, according to a U.N. fact-finding mission. An AP investigation published in April 2016 found that authorities had also rounded up the capital’s homeless, among them “children and the disabled,” and sent them to clandestine workhouses ahead of the Games. Over the next few years, hundreds of South Koreans were allegedly beaten and raped in such institutions, and some were even killed, as they generated millions of dollars through slave-like labor, making cheap goods for export. Nobody has been held accountable for the abuses.

A unified team and flag

Some officials have suggested that the two Koreas should field a joint team if North Korea attend the forthcoming Winter Olympics. Although it’s never happened at a multi-sport competition like the Olympics, a joint Korea team is not unprecedented.

In the years after the bombing of Korean Air Flight 858, a unified table tennis team was formed in a bid to ease tensions on the peninsula, and the combined team was sent to the 1991 World Table Tennis Championships in Chiba, Japan. It was the women who excelled: North Korean Ri Pun-hui and South Korean Hyun Jung-hwa snatched gold from formidable Chinese opponents. The Koreans in attendance waved white flags emblazoned with blue images of the entire undivided peninsula, NYT reported in 1991

North Korea and South Korea have also paraded under a unified flag on several occasions. The first time was at the opening ceremony of Sydney 2000 Games. Athletes from the two Koreas also marched together at the 2002 Asian Games in the South Korean city of Busan, the 2004 Athens Olympics, the Turin Winter Olympics in 2006, and most recently at the 2007 Asian Games in Changchun, China.

Gulags and censored scorelines

With the rare exception of an experimental joint team fielded for the 1991 FIFA World Youth Championship, North-South Korea soccer rivalry has run long and deep. In the women’s game, the North usually beat their southern rivals; while in the men’s game, it’s the South that mostly comes out on top.

That’s what happened in the 2014 Asian Games, when the North Korean men’s team fell 1—0 to the South. The North was so sore about the loss that, despite a great build-up, the result of the match was never made public north of the DMZ, according to the BBC.

“Nobody in North Korea, as far as official media goes, knows that match result,” BBC North Korea analyst Alistair Coleman said.

Still, there are worse fates than having your results scrubbed from the history books. A member of the North Korean judo team, who later defected from the country, told Reuters that while some winning medalists were given apartments and cars, he was sent to a gulag as punishment for losing to a South Korean athlete at the Beijing Asian Games in 1990.

Intro. to Slimeology: A Brief Guide to ‘Slime Rancher’s’ Adorable Creatures

Slime Rancher, a game recently released on Steam, is a life simulation game that has become a smash hit overnight. This open world game has you take on the role of a slime rancher on a distant planet. For your ranch to thrive, you need to collect materials, capture slimes, and care for them so that you can turn their excrement into profit.

If that doesn’t sound intriguing and like a fun way to spend a couple of hours, video games may not be for you. By combining some of the core ideas behind Minecraft and the guiding principles of the Harvest Moon franchise, Slime Rancher is definitely trying to be one of the many hit games of 2017. So, for those of you new to the world of Slime Rancher, here’s everything you need to know about the first couple of slimes you will run into and some information on some slimes you should keep an eye out for.

Pink Slimes

Pink slimes are by far the most common type of slime in Slime Rancher. These kinds of slimes are harmless to the player and also create ‘plorts’ that are useful in creating gadgets that allow players to explore more of the world. These slimes are also great to collect at the beginning of the game, as they can be fed any kind of food without any adverse effects occurring.

However, take precautions when corralling these adorable balls of goo. They have a habit of trying to escape from their pens by jumping on top of each other to form pink totems. If you store enough pink slimes in a corral without any upgrades, they will try to escape and will wreak havoc on your ranch.

Tabby Slimes

Tabby slimes appear quite frequently in the world of Slime Rancher. While they’re not the most common kind of slime, they are easily the cutest. The favorite food of these feline slimes are Hen Hens, but they prefer Stony Hens for some reason.

Unfortunately, these cute little blogs can be a bit mischievous. They are notorious for stealing and hiding food that they do not eat and will even jump out of their pens if there are not any extra measures to keep them contained. The fact that they’re trouble makers can easily be overlooked, though, as their favorite kind of toy is a ball of yarn; which is adorable enough to forgive any wrong doings that they commit.

Rock Slimes

These spiky globs will most likely be the first harmful variety of slime that you’ll encounter in the game. Touching them will lower your health, which makes dealing with a large group of them at once quite perilous. Therefore, you should build machines to harvest their plorts and feed them; as doing so by hand may result in a puncture or two.

Unsurprisingly, their favorite toy by far is the big rock as they share its stony disposition. What is surprising is that these mineral monsters are strict vegetarians. Their favorite food is by far the Heart Beet, but feeding them anything that isn’t plant based will cause them to reject it and potentially starve.


Largos are as beneficial as they are risky. Largos are chubby slime hybrids that have inherited traits from two different breeds of slime. This is done by feeding the plort of one kind of slime to another slime. While the appearance of Largos can differ vastly, they all come in the same extra large size.

Besides being so over-sized that they inevitably make your ranch cuter, Largo produce the kinds of plorts that both of their base forms produce. This can make them extremely profitable. However, if they eat a kind of plort not inherent to one of their bases, a Largo will transform into one of the greatest terrors in all of Slime Rancher: The Tarr.

The Tarr

The Tarr are living piles of muck that Largos transform into whenever they eat plorts that are not produced by their base slimes. They are the biggest threat to your ranch as they produce no plorts and will turn other slimes into Tarr simply by touching them. This means that you could lose an entire corral of slimes in minutes if you aren’t mindful.

If The Tarr weren’t annoying enough already, they can be a pain to get rid of too. While spraying a Tarr with fresh water will cause it to stop producing more Tarr, and spraying it multiple times with fresh water will eventually eliminate it; this can be difficult when facing multiple Tarrs at once. If Tarrs have fully taken over a pen, it might be best just to start chucking them into an incinerator or lobbing them into the Slime Sea.

Gold Slimes

Gold Slimes are one of the rarest in Slime Rancher, but also one of the most profitable. They cannot be captured or used to make Largos, but they do produce gold plorts which are the most valuable plorts in the game. When struck with an item, gold slimes will create gold plorts, which have a maximum value of 650 newbucks. Gold slimes are known for being rather skittish, so you’ll have to be quick and sneaky to gain their coveted plorts.

Lucky Slimes

Cousins to the tabby slimes, and based off of the Japanese lucky cat, unique Lucky Slimes produce newbucks instead of plorts. When fed any kind of meat, these feline money-makers will jump impossibly high into the air and drop coins for the player to collect. By cutting out the middle man of the plort exchange, lucky slimes provide a nice windfall of newbucks to a fortunate rancher.

While dubious, the origin story for these fiscally-minded blobs is also adorable. Supposedly, one day a regular tabby slime developed a fascination with newbuck coins and began eating them. This caused it to change into a lucky slime, and before long, more of them began to appear. While rare and standoffish, any rancher who spies one should investigate it immediately if they hope to make a bit of quick cash.

Major assignment chapters each focus on one or two classical stases (e.g. definition, resemblance, causal, evaluation, and policy). Each concept is immediately reinforced with discussion prompts, and each chapter ends with multiple comprehensive writing assignments.
