Long before Cardi B struck it big on Love and Hip Hop or on the charts, she was a Vine star, tapping into her social media capital early on. Since then, there’s been no stopping her, with her making history as the first solo female artist to win a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.
What seems to endear her most to her fans is her ability to be relatable and an open book about the highs and the lows in her life. In a recent interview, she went out of her way to talk about not expecting rappers she collaborates with to “pick a side,” if they are friends with someone else.Many fans mocked her for that statement citing some of the times that they believe she did just that.
“If I like you, and I meet you, and we do a song, I don’t expect you to, like, pick a side or anything,” Cardi B explained. “You could work with whoever you want to work with. Because at the end of the day, this is a business, and you gotta look out for yourself, always.”
Her caveat in this case is simple: “Just don’t s### on me. And don’t show me that you’re a fake b####. That’ll be breakin’ my heart. And when I see you, I’ma let you know. And when I have to express myself, I’ll express myself.” .
