Cardi B Just Dropped Her Debut Album And The Internet Is Hype AF

Cardi B dropped her debut album Invasion of Privacy on Friday, and with 13 tracks of straight gas she fired back at every hater who questioned her role in hip-hop.

The Dominican-Trinidadian rapper’s premiere LP hasn’t been on sale for more than 24 hours, and it’s already been certified gold. With bangers like “Best Life,” a tune featuring Chicago emcee Chance The Rapper about livin’ la vida buena, and “Get Up 10,” a recreation of Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares Intro” where she reflects on her time as a stripper, along with omnipresent jams like “Bartier Cardi,” “Be Careful” and the colossal hit that started her explosive career, “Bodak Yellow,” she guaranteed her place in hip-hop history.

But she’s not going anywhere anytime soon. As the Afro-Latina’s career erupts, she has a few contemporary breakouts alongside her. The 48-minute album includes features from Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Kehlani, SZA, Migos, 21 Savage and YG.

There’s no denying that Cardi, born Belcalis Almanzar, delivered lyrical fuel with Invasion of Privacy, but if you’re still doubting, listen to what the people of the Internet have to say.

We were expecting a lit tracklist, but dayuuuuuum, Cardi!

You literally blew us away.

Did you notice everyone bumping during their commute?

Guilty!

The album is so ?, it had us twerking at our desk all morning long.


And def changed our mood — for the better.

Her bars are basically therapy.

At first we’re like yes, YESSS, YAS! EEEEYYY!

And it’s so hard to decide which song you like best.

But “I Like It” is def a fan (and perrito) favorite.


And you can’t leave “Bickenhead” behind.


Michelle knows.


Queen Cardi’s glow up is something you only read about in history books.

And tbh, we’re here for her entire evolution.

Belcalis had everyone taking notes prepping for the summer…

*Saves for that selfie that never went up because I couldn’t find the right words*

Or this weekend.

Because a girl’s got Instagram to keep up with.

But inspirational quotes aside, we know this is gon’ be us when we hear “Bickenhead” this weekend.

Someone, hold my purse.

Oh and when we heard “I Like It Like That”…

We couldn’t take it! ?

You better believe we got up to dance when we heard the lyrics.

*Adds this to list of potential Instagram captions*

Thank you Cardi for every kind of anthem we didn’t know we needed.

We’re so consumed.

And thank you for giving us something to look forward to this weekend.

I’m staying in to clean and memorize the lyrics.

And congrats you royal queen. You did this!

Now do yourself a favor and listen to Invasion of Privacy.

Video Dug Up From Cardi B’s Past Shows Her Saying She Used To Drug And Rob Men

Stay grateful you did not grow up in the era of Snapchat/ Instagram/ Facebook kids because you can delete but your recorded actions can still come back to bite. Cardi B knows the story. While the Afro-Latina queen of Trap isn’ making any apologies, the latest video to be dug up from her past is requiring her to give some answers.

Video of the singer, recalling a time in her life in which she felt forced to drug and rob men while seducing them has resurfaced.

Over the weekend, video of the “Money” rapper recalling how she used to drug and rob men resurfaced.

The video, which was recorded during an Instagram live broadcast, sees Cardi as she goes on a tearful verbal tirade about her past. This after, someone apparently questioned her success and accused her of not “putting in no fucking work.”

“I had to go ‘oh yeah, you wanna fuck me? Yeah yeah yeah let’s go to this hotel.’ And then I’d drug [expletivie] up and I’d rob them. That’s what I used to do.”

Users online were quick to comment.

“The fact that cardi b admitted to drugging and robbing men she would take back to a hotel for sex blows my mind,” wrote Twitter user @itsangelaa. “That’s not ‘keeping it real.’ that’s a crime.”

“I wonder what woulda happened if it were the other way round,” @BTSisthecauseo5 commented.

At the onset of the backlash, the rapper seemed to take the comments rather lightly.

The following day she also tweeted “IM THAT BITCH THEY LOVE TO HATE, IM THAT BITCH THEY HATE TO LOVE and I love it.”

On Tuesday, however, after users on Instagram and Twitter continued to simmer, she was forced to issue comment.

In a post to her Instagram, the rapper responded to the comments about the video by saying: “I’m a part of a hip hop culture where you can talk about where you come from talk about the wrong things you had to do to get where you are.”

Cardi B To Make Feature Film Debut In Stripper Scam Movie ‘Hustlers’ Alongside J. Lo

Cardi B has dominated the music charts with bangers that allude to her past life as a New York City stripper, and now the hip-hip star is ready to take over the big screen as a scammin’ dancer in the film “Hustlers.”

Deadline reports that the movie, set in New York during the 2008 financial crisis, is a tale of strippers who join together to swindle their Wall Street clients. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria (The Meddler), “Hustlers” is based on a 2015 article by Jessica Pressler for New York Magazine titled “The Hustlers at Scores.”

The film will also star Jennifer Lopez, who Cardi worked with in 2018 on the hit “Dinero,” as well as Constance Wu (“Crazy Rich Asians”), Lili Reinhart (Riverdale), Keke Palmer (Scream Queens), Julia Stiles (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and Oscar-winner Mercedes Ruehl (“The Fisher King”).

Lopez is also producing the movie alongside STXfilms, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina, who collaborated previously on the 2018 rom-com “Second Act.”

While “Hustlers” will mark Cardi’s first major acting role, she isn’t new to the screen. The Bronx rapper appeared as herself on Love and Hip Hop: New York for two seasons, before her explosive music career, and made a guest appearance on Gabrielle Union’s BET series Being Mary Jane in 2017.

Shooting for the film will begin on March 22, 2019, and we’re all excited to see our fave Dominican-Trinidadian on the big screen.
