Cardi B Clarifies Comments on The State of Female Representation in Hip-Hop

After stating she believed her success has created an opportunity for other female rappers to achieve the same, Cardi has had to clarify her comments. Believing her message was taken out of context, Cardi says, “I didn’t say I pave the way for female rappers but I deff gave the hood and women hope.”

During an interview on Tidal’s Rap Radar Podcast, Cardi said her success left a lot of industry execs feeling left out. Afraid of missing the opportunity to cash out on another female rapper, Cardi believes the trend of mainstream female rap representation is due to labels scrambling to replicate her success.

Took A Few L’s

Having amassed a following from social media and a brief appearance on Love & Hip Hop: New York, Cardi’s climb to stardom was not as easy as depicted. During the Tidal segment, Cardi admitted she reached out to several labels before securing deals with Atlantic and Quality Control. Feeling her experience in the music industry, prior to her success, was parallel to the treatment female rappers always endured, Cardi pointed out the sad state of hip-hop. In a series of tweets, Cardi said, “It seem like it was impossible for it to be more [than] one female rapper.” She commented on the rarity of female/male rap collaborations, sharing male rappers wouldn’t even take the money for a feature.

Despite the accuracy of her claims, many naysayers still insisted Cardi didn’t deserve credit for the manner hip-hop has recently embraced female artists. To her detractors, she called out how poorly female rappers were promoted and managed as well as how that has changed following her success. What she is not taking credit for is the surge of female rappers. Stating “bitches been rapping, bitches been have talent, but the music industry wasn’t believing and shitting on female rappers.”, Cardi reiterated sentiments she shared while correcting Jermaine Dupri.

“Cardi B for Congress” Has Conservative Twitter PRESSED!

Published

on

Cardi B is contemplating a run for office according to a series of tweets published this past Sunday, January 12. Unsurprisingly enough, she is already battling hate from all across the aisle. 

“I think I want to be a politician. I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Government (sic),” the New York rapper said in a series of tweets. “Like I was watching war documentaries. No matter how many weapons a country have you need people! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming the LOVE being American.”

 

The rapper then went on to say she will have to explain more at a later date, possibly in a video. After publicly endorsing Vermont Senator and progressive Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in 2019, Cardi was lauded for showing us the “woke” side of her image. 

On Tuesday, the rapper found herself in numerous Twitter spats, especially with right-wing accounts. Mindy Robinson, a conservative political pundit, commented on Cardi’s post with several drawn-in grammatical corrections. Despite Cardi admitting on Sunday that she would need more schooling before she could seriously enter politics, Robinson ended her tweet with “you need more than that.” In a later comment, she declared that her “cat is more qualified to run for Congress than Cardi B.”

 

Cardi, whose given name is Belacalis Almánzar, is no stranger to Twitter beef and quickly had an answer for Robinson. “Leave me alone. I didn’t insulted your party or your believes so please don’t try me and let’s keep sweet OK….don’t want to dog walk you,” she replied before unleashing a savage string of jabs toward the internet personality. 

 

While a dog walk sounds like a peaceful way to spend quality time with your beloved pooch, for Cardi, it is a serious threat – one we’ve heard before. You will recall in January of 2019 she warned Tomi Lahren, another conservative pundit, to leave her alone, lest she gets dog walked. Just as in the feud with Robinson, Cardi was minding her own business on social media Tomi Lahren attacked her for her views. Her comments lit a fire in the rapper and the two engaged in a back and forth lasting several hours. 

 

Obviously Robinson did not get the message a year ago that Cardi B has the time to argue with internet trolls because she found herself in the same predicament as Lahren did – potentially discovering what it’s like to “dog walk” with Cardi. 

 

Check out the best of both feuds below and let us know what you think.
