Cardi B has been straight killin' it and no one can deny it.
Whether you first became acquainted with Cardi B through her Instagram videos that detailed her daily rants on working, dating and fixing her teeth, the 24-year-old has now put herself on the map for so much more that just being a quick video to send to friends for a little laugh.
When "Bodak Yellow" dropped in June it took no time until everyone blasted it as their number one turn-up track. The lyrics that detail everything that Cardi has turned into is something that was easily stuck in your head for days on end. "Said little bitch, you can't fuck with me/ if you wanted to/ these expensive, these is red bottoms / these is bloody shoes."
Cardi has had some practice with perfecting her rap skills with her first initial release Gangsta Bitch Music Vol 1. from last year, that boasted a dope remix from her now boyfriend, Offset, on the track "Lick." It was the ultimate move to sign with Atlanta Records that pushed her to stardom, especially with label sisters such as Kehlani and Missy Elliott.
"I had a lot of deals on the table but like they gave me the best offer, the one that I don't have to owe them much, and they just gave me a lot of money so I took it," she explained in her Fader feature interview. "They gave the right number, so I chose them. It was significantly more than other [deals]. I heard a lot of good things and they was really eager to work with me so I was just like, if they want to give this money then it's because they're really gonna work hard for me. People don't understand that they signed me because I put out a free mixtape and it sold so much and it was free, like, the numbers don't lie. It's right there."
Just yesterday we reported that her anthem has hit No. 1 and it's no surprise that the Hip Hop community has come together to pay their respects to the young rapper for making herself standout like no other.
Cardi followed up with a big thank you to Missy Elliott saying, "the first album I ever bought I didn’t even really understand what she was saying cause I was soo young I would never though of this son !!! I love you !!!!"
