Cardi B Mentions Her Daughter Kulture in Her Newest Song and Our Hearts Just Exploded

Cardi knows how to multitask. In her the Dominican-Trinidadian rappers latest single, which dropped on Tuesday, October 23rd, the “I Like It Rapper” proves that when she makes moves they’re all about the mommy and money profits.  In her latest song, aptly titled “Money”, the Bronx-born rapper avows an un-apologetically indulgent celebration of the things that matter most to her in life.

Among this list is “checks” “boardin’ jets”, “morning sex” and of course her newborn daughter Kulture.

Cardi’s new song “Money” is the kind of quality banger we expect to get from her.

The charismatic MC rattles of her verses business as usual, flexing about her bank account and her love of dinero. Still, she takes the listener by surprise in her final verse when she changes the lyric from “But nothing in this world that I like more than checks” to “But nothing in this world that I like more than Kulture”. Although it’s a small nod to the massive change of becoming a mother that’s she’s experienced, that doesn’t make it any less powerful. In this verse, Cardi displays that she’s the same person we’ve grown to love, but with a different, more mature, even more responsible outlook on life.

As usual, Cardi B stans on Twitter were all about her new single.

Each time @iamcardib comes out with a song I feel like I relate to it more than the last.

“Money” has reached us on a whole other level.

In the past, Cardi has made no secret of the financial struggle she endured before finding success, telling stories of how she felt compelled to stay in an abusive relationship because of her financial situation: “I was dictated to, and had to do things I didn’t want to do because I was living under a man’s roof…and I didn’t have money”. Additionally, she’s talked about the struggle her parents went through raising her on a limited income, stating, “I have real good parents, they poor….They real good people and what not, I was just raised in a bad society”.

This isn’t the first time Cardi has been upfront about how much money means to her.

It’s hard to believe that Cardi’s chart-topping single “Bodak Yellow” was released in June 2017, just a little over a year ago. Since then, she’s released her incredibly successful debut album “Invasion of Privacy,” been on the cover of Rolling Stone, been the first female rapper to have two number one singles, and of course, gotten married and had a baby. Recently, she took to Instagram Live to discuss the work she’s doing on her latest album and how she hopes to finish at least ten more songs before the year’s end. With a drive like this, it’s no wonder she’s sometimes referred to as the hardest-working rapper in the hip-hop game today.

As for arguably the most important job she’s had so far, that of a new momm, Cardi’s journey has just begun. She recently told Jimmy Kimmel that she plans on having three or four children because she’s loved the experience so much. As for us, we’re most excited that Cardi is finally able to break the cycle of poverty she was born into and provide for her daughter in a way that her parents were unfortunately never able to do.

Kehlani Welcomes Baby Girl After “Hard But Powerful” Unmedicated Home Birth

R&B star Kehlani is a mommy. The singer welcomed her first child, baby girl Adeya, over the weekend.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Lani disclosed that she had an unmedicated home birth, describing the experience as both strenuous and beautiful.

“This weekend our angel arrived healthy & perfect in every way in our bathroom at home,” the 23-year-old crooner captioned a photo of a baby blanket with colorful pine trees. “Unmedicated home birth was the absolute hardest yet most powerful thing I’ve ever done. Thankful beyond words. In love beyond comparison.”

Lani, who had her first baby with guitarist Javie Young-White, talked more about her decision to have a home birth on Twitter.

“All birth is extremely hard and transformative,” she said. “Home birth is a medical decision as is hospital birth, all birth is mind blowing & powerful. … it’s a next level journey whichever way.”

While emphasizing the splendor and power of childbirth, she didn’t deny the physical pain that accompanies it.

“But I hope everyone knows no one can tell me SHIT after that because LORD…next level, no words!”

Lani said she wouldn’t be posting on social media much in order to rest and spend time with her new family but sent her gratitude to her fans for their love, support and well wishes.

Days before the birth of her child, Lani released the music video for “Butterfly,” which appears on the singer’s While We Wait mixtape that dropped last month.

Watch the video for “Butterfly” below:

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.
