Rapper Cardi B was among the well-heeled performers at Jay-Z's star-studded TIDAL X: Brooklyn Benefit Concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on Tuesday, October 17.

People are still buzzing about the 6 hour concert where top tier superstars like Jennifer Lopez, center, shared the stage with unknowns and up-and-coming artists. At age 48, J-Lo put the younger performers to shame.

Performers included Chris Brown, pictured, Stevie Wonder, T.I., Remy Ma, Cardi B, DJ Khaled, Iggy Azalea, Willow Smith, Jadakiss, Yo Gotti, A$AP Ferg, Fifth Harmony, Mack Wilds, Fabolous, Fat Joe, Swizz Beatz, Daddy Yankee, and many more.

Remy Ma, pictured above, also performed. Proceeds from the concert will go toward disaster relief efforts in the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico -- after Jay-Z and organizers take their cut.


Jay-Z's wife, Beyonce, was also in the house looking pretty. But she's still recovering from tummy tuck surgery, so she did not perform.

  • Noirluv45

    You know the system, right? I'm sure they signed her because she's the hottest thing out by today's standard. They always pimp non-Black people and they rise like cream to the top imitating us. It's not surprising she has a deal.

  • KA

    I also want a post on Kim K’s supposed body issues from the pics of her cellulite when she was in Mexico. How this chick gonna have body issues when she got famous for a sex tape??? I want to know what Sandra and everybody has to say about that!!

  • my view

    i still think she's just a one hit wonder

  • KA

    Oh wow!

  • Noirluv45

    I heard something by her (don't know the name and didn't care to find out) and my ears rang for days. Horrid! I'm like, "Good grief, this passes for fame?"

  • KcoolMuziq

    Well Jennifer Lopez can't sing for her life. She's been making albums for decades. So I guess your right.

  • Pamela

    The shade.

  • Noirluv45

    Yep, can't argue with that. I heard she's a royal female dog too!

  • nick c

  • XoXo

    A whole bunch of artists are signed on with companies, but don't make music.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I'm hoping she is because that song she came out with is garbage. She's not talking about anything or making any sense. Just a catchy tune for the youngstas!

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    No, she sure can't sing.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Omg ????????

    CARDI YEs!
    Iggy her little leg is nasty and look like clumps of fat. YUCK

  • Dahl

    Lol at tummy tuck surgery, just can't let it go. I thought Jlo was actually Beyoncé, love her boots. Cardi's wig looks cheap. Hate CB's braids. And Iggy got to perform? I guess Jay or TI is still plowing...

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Her body wasn’t tore up after years and numerous surgeries later in that tape! She should have stopped at the surgeries then smh. I saw a clip of her and she legit freaked out “omg I have un tag myself in everything” ??

    That man can perform his ass off. His concerts are always off the chain.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    Kiss of death??

  • Bob Dilla

    Where's Nicky? Was she invited? ? ??

  • starbright9449

    How come Nicki didn't perform, did she have other obligations? I see Remy is there....... JLo still killin it!! If it had been Bey up there, people would've said she should be home with her twins and Blue and she's too old to be dancing around on stage but Jlo is a lot older than her and still getting praises. Tummy tuck? Lies!! Bey is known for waist training and working for crazy abs. I've seen some videos and pics of her abs at their best. While pregnant with those twins she only gained a preggo belly, no arm fat, no nothing.

  • starbright9449

    So what about noses? My sis got pregnant with her first kid and her nose blew alllllllll the way up. Her pregnancy pics were funny looking lol but still adorable. After she had my niece the nose never left. Its been years. Her nose is still huge. Pregnancy can change some people's features permanently but I guess cause it's Beyonce, she must have had work done. Silliness.

  • starbright9449

    Reading these comments I can tell Beyonce and Cardi really pissed in a lot of peoples coffee lol.

  • leapyearpisces

    Cardi, you morphing into Nicki, girl. That first pic, I thought that was Onika.

  • missmiami305

    Remy needs to hire a new stylist. She always looks so dated.

  • Ozad

    she found out Remy ma was there and got scurred

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed


  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Cardi don't even realize the industry and the stylists tryna turn her into Nicki. Speaking of Nicki why she always absent when its time to show up! Either A. Cardi #1 song on the Hot 100 and Nicki didn't want to feel second best or B. She knew Remy was gonna be there so she decided it was best schedule an appearance elsewhere to seem booked. or C. Jay and Bey forgot to invite her. This has happened before!

    Everybody looks nice, Bey more than others.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    So Sandy, you couldn't compliment Beyonce without throwing in much shade huh?? tuh!

    I like Beyonce new surgery body go girl

  • speakinmymind


  • speakinmymind

    Remy is big...

  • Kimberly King

    Baddie Bey did not come to play. Love everything from the attire, to the makeup, to the hair.

  • Jussjess25

    Both choices are correct. Nicki always screaming she the best, yet she never around for nothing ?. However, much of her fan base is European she spends alot of time there.

  • Cie Be

    Okay, Whew....here we go! Beyonce, badd dress and all, hair should've been pinned up though, but as she sang "they'll neva take the country outta me"..so, you go gal. JLo....wanna be Beyonce, that's it, that's all....Remy Ma....Gotta love her, Bless her heart...Cardi B., I don't know her, but she might think she's Nikki....Jay Z, to old for all that shyt....Chris Brown, is my little brother, I just love him, and he can do no wrong, but I'm gone Pray for him....Iggy Mae, best ta' get her life back in Australia....TI, needs to quit playing, out chea' looking like a black Pee Wee Herman! The rest I got nothing! Peace.

  • Merrygoround

    JLo is still keeping that Jenny from the block look. Cardi B looks like she's having all out fun. Beyoncé bringing the JLo 2000 back. Remy look likes she ain't playing, bless her soul. Chris brown looks corpse-y in the face..That's it.

  • tintin

    Chris B performed at something Jay Z planned?.?? When did they make up didn't know they became friends..didnt he blacklist him because of Rihanna?

  • Marlika

    I never cared for Remy MA's style or rapping. The only hook she was ever on that I ever liked was Ante up. I wish she would disappear some where. Mofo's keep hyping her up like she's doing something. She keeps talking bout Nikki the same way Kim always talks about BIG. LET IT GO AND MOVE TF ON!!!!??
    Matter of fact I'm sick of all these so called female rappers??

    Wish Beyoncé would retire that blond shit on her head.??

  • the guest


  • the guest

    Rihanna forgave him and probably asked her circle to. Chris since became a dad and Jay Z is righteous about fatherhood.

  • the guest

    Good for Nicki, Europeans are real nice to black artists and they treat her like royalty. Being where the love, least stress, and money is, is being smart.

  • Yetunde

    I think so too, I was beginning to think I was the only one.

  • Coco

    They also buy music. Unlike some people ??

  • Coco

    Speaking like that is what appealed her fan base.

    I dont know about shut down with only 1 hit song boo..but definitely swagga jacked!

  • Dowoop

    Fabolous all day every day.

  • pika12

    Well, Nicki got it from Kim so what goes around always comes back around. That's how the industry works sometimes. R. Kelly stole Aaron Hall's (Guy) singing style, but Aaron Hall was obviously heavily influenced by Charlie Wilson (formerly of the Gap Band & now solo). Kelly later developed his own sound. There are countless examples of one star piggy backing another. Sometimes they are heavily influenced by one older performer (like Madonna for early Lada Gaga) or sometimes it's a combination of inspirations as in the case of Beyonce. But back to Cardi B; Nicki did it to Kim and now it's happening to her with Cardi.

  • pika12

    Well, Nicki morphed into Kim, so it's no surprise that now she is the one influencing younger or newer artists. It just goes on and on. Just about everyone was heavily influenced by one or more previous performer(s).

  • datATLboi

    Where in the HELL was Rihanna?!?!?! QTNA

  • Diva4lyfe

    Mack Wilds got me thinking lol

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    ALL THIS!!! You aint lying cuz they tried to make Trey Songz the new R.Kelly but you see how that turned out.

  • Vegas1989

    These are the following people that needs to stay after school and wait in the gym. Cardi B and Remy Ma. for violated the wig/lacefront policy. TI for dressing like a 3rd grader in your Easter Speech outfit and Iggy please pick up your plane ticket and leave you passport and return to Australia because a baby joey needs you than rap music. Thank you very much.

  • Jussjess25


  • MRiGOThim

    too busy, lol

  • MRiGOThim

    Beyonce's body looks good, but the dress, faux fur, & lace front is a CHOP!!!
