The new Grammy award winning rapper, Cardi B (real name Belcalis Almanzar) made hip-hop history Sunday night after being awarded the ‘Best Rap Album,’ for Invasion of Privacy at the 61st annual Grammy’s. Following criticism that she was undeserving of her best rap album Grammy win and some social media drama where she was pitted against Nicki Minaj by the BET Network, Cardi went on an expletive-filled rant on her Instagram.
In a Instagram post, Cardi addressed the critics saying,
“It’s not my style to put other people down to uplift someone else, that’s not my style, that’s not what I’m with and I don’t support that. However, I’ve been taking a lot of sh*t today and I saw a lot sh*t last night and I’m sick of this sh*t. I worked hard for my motherf*cking album. I remember last year when I didn’t win for Bodak Yellow, everybody was like, “Cardi got snubbed” now this year, it’s a f*cking problem? My album went two times platinum, my n*gga!”
“I locked myself in the studio for 3 months, my n*gga. Didn’t go to sleep in my bed sometimes for four days pregnant, while everybody was harassing me like, ‘You can’t do it..”
Amidst her rant, Cardi deactivated her Instagram account.
