With the amount of Billboard success Cardi B has acquired in 2017, it was only a matter of time before she covered the publication's magazine to officially talk about her chart-topping moments.

As many now know, Cardi recently became the first female emcee to top Billboard charts since Lauryn Hill's 1998 single, “Doo Wop (That Thing).”

Lauryn Hill is like a goddess," she says. "For me to be in the same sentence with her, and one day a new female rapper to be in the same sentence with me...” She even touches on de-throning Taylor Swift's “Look What You Made Me Do,” adding, "I really like that song, but it do make me feel good because Taylor Swift is freaking Taylor Swift -- [being on top] is what she’s known for, and it felt like I was doing it for the culture.”

Of course, her work ethic is something that has made Cardi reach such great heights and she explains that it's for a good reason. "I do not want to raise my future kids where I was raised, and I know the only way to do it is working, working, working, working, working,” she says. “I don’t want to live in a small Bronx apartment. I don’t want to have three kids that got to share one room. I don’t want my kids to go to school and get gang-affiliated. I don’t want to do welfare. I don’t.”
