Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
Cardi B sometimes gets tired of being a millionaire, of having money and fame and having virtually anything she wants. Instead, the former Bronx rapper reminisces about her days living the hood, where she can tote guns, and live an adventurous life, Media Take Out has learned.
Cardi let one of her fans into her inner thoughts yesterday, when the fan criticized Cardi for going to the hood to film her latest music video Put It On The Floor.
In criticizing the imagery in Cardi’s new video, the fan asked Cardi, “who escapes the hood just to relive it every chance they get?”
Cardi B responded, saying “I was tearing up the other day because I miss my old life.” Cardi’s old life involved, dancing and robbing men. She was also involved in gangs and violence.
Cardi added that “sometimes having everything gets boring.”
She is also the female rapper with the most diamond-certified songs (three) by the RIAA, the highest-certified female rapper of all time on their Top Artists (Digital Singles) ranking, and has 100 million certified units (album and songs) sold in the US alone. Additionally, she is the female rapper with the most songs with a billion streams on Spotify—where she also has the most-streamed female rap album. She was the first lead artist to top the Billboard Global 200.
Her accolades include a Grammy Award, eight Billboard Music Awards, six Guinness World Records, six American Music Awards, 14 BET Hip Hop Awards, and two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year awards. In 2018, Time magazine included her on its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2020, Billboard honored her as Woman of the Year. Outside of music, she became the creative director of entertainment magazine Playboy in 2022.
