The rapper is making some serious editorial moves.
Cardi B has had a meteoric rise into the upper echelons of the music industry, captivating listeners with her distinct presence, as well as her no holds barred public persona. "Bodak Yellow," alongside her string of Billboard Hot 100 hits have cemented her history-making status as a female emcee navigating the typically male-dominated terrain of the rap industry.
Fittingly, Cardi was placed on the cover of the New York Times Magazine, which has selected a list of 25 contemporary songs that are harbingers of what's to come in the music industry. The publication has chosen four distinct musicians to grace four different covers of the same issue, which also includes Gucci Mane, SZA and King Krule.
The "Cartier Bardi" rapper gleefully took to Instagram yesterday to reveal her latest promotional gig, as well as reflect on her short, yet illustrious career thus far.
Hashtagging her photo in commemoration of International Women's Day, Cardi humbly recalls the bevy of roles she's inhabited as a woman throughout her life thus far. She reveals to have been the street bitch, college girl, 9-5 girl, stripper, tv, rapper, and "poppin ass daughter."
She then sends a message to her female fans from all walks of life that she can relate to them, and that she would never judge their unique life trajectories. Cardi closes her sentiment by telling her female counterparts to "be the best woman you can be!!!"
