Cardi B From Her Days As An Exotic Dancer – Pics And Video

Cardi B is in the middle of her fame right now. The Love & Hip Hop alumnis has been on fire since her departure from the show in 2016. Cardi B has followed Nikki Minaj’s playbook on how to be a successful female hip hop artist and she is reaping the rewards. In May 2017, the nominees for the 2017 BET Awards were announced, revealing that she had been nominated for Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. Although she failed to win any awards, losing to Chance the Rapper and Remy Ma, respectively, she performed at the BET Awards afterparty show. In June 2017, during Hot 97’s annual Summer Jam music festival, Remy Ma brought out Cardi B, along with The Lady of Rage, MC Lyte, Young M.A., Monie Love, Lil’ Kim and Queen Latifah, to celebrate female rappers and perform Latifah’s 1993 hit single “U.N.I.T.Y.” about female empowerment. Her rap style has often been compared to Lil Kim and Foxy Brown and she has collaborated with Hip Hop’s top artists. 2017 has definitely been her year. She summed up her fame in a quote. ‘People be asking me, ‘What do you does? Are you a model? Are you, like, a comedian or something?’ Nah, I ain’t none of that. I’m a hoe. I’m a stripper hoe. I’m about this shmoney.’
