A creative Cardi B fan on Instagram.com took the time to create this graphic showing the hardware the Bronx rapper hauled home from awards shows in less than 2 years. The "Bodak Yellow" rapper managed to win a total of 60 major music awards while earning a whopping 117 award nominations.

Those of us who are music connoisseurs remember when it took years for truly talented magicians like Michael Jackson or Madonna to win a single Grammy. Cardi accomplished this feat in one year.

If anything, this graphic shows us how far the music industry has declined over the past 10 years. Rather than celebrate musical genius like we did in the past, we tolerate rappers who can barely speak proper English.

Last night, following her red carpet mishap at the 2019 Billboard Awards, Cardi took to social media to complain about users circulating a photo that shows a little skin under her dress that some fans mistook for a wardrobe malfunction.

Cardi posted a video that shows her posing in the nude while giving social media users a vulgar anatomy lesson about the difference between her vagina and her buttocks. The irony is she completely disrespected herself while chastising others for disrespecting her.

"Naaa ya just be mad cause ya wanna drag me then when I show yaaa I don't give a f–k ya complain about that too. I didn't even show my p--sy," she tweeted.

Within hours the video was deleted, but fans are still buzzing over Cardi's lack of self control. Is this who we want to represent Black music in America?

Others who were wary of the debate over Culture Vultures like Cardi simply give up. "This generation deserves an artist like Cardi B," wrote one disgusted social media user.

Below is a list of the hardware Cardi B has collected in less than 2 years.

    You don't like her, mute her. She's trash, you ain't missing nothing. This is what they are promoting. Just ignore her.

  • xenaD

    The younger generation is just different! We have to stick to our playlists and keep it moving... In 10 more years they’re going to be singing the same song. It’s not just cardi either, there’s a thousand “Rapper’s” these kids listen to! Cardi just slipped thru the cracks good for her. I never understood how abc123 Nicki got so big either but hey

  • SoulfulLove

    How many did Nicki get this year? Asking for a friend

  • stav

    Don't care! She represents herself!

  • Candie P

    Michael actually grew up in a era where there was actual competition like Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie etc. Hell, even Miss Diana Ross didn't win a Grammy Award until 2012 which I found long overdue and absurd. Nowadays music is sh*t and everyone knows it, it's like going to assembly and watching the school give away awards to the students just for showing up. These award shows lost their status just as much good music did.

  • Gloria

    She’s an industry plant. Don’t act like y’all that know who is behind these major labels ? Even our most beloved “woke” rappers our programmed.

    An old coworker of mine went into hysterics congratulating Cardi B on Instagram last night. Mind you, we are almost 40 years old. I will never look at him the same again.

    I'm not going to blame culture vulture....why, because we have done it to ourselves. We stopped demanding quality music. We stopped demanded good writers. We stopped demanding that if you stand in the spotlight that you hold a responsibility to the rest of the community. We stopped telling radio stations that we didn't like certain songs. We make excuses for culture vultures everyday. There was a time when R+B groups couldn't be the same, Whitney, Mariah, Janet, and Madonna HAD to be different and was appreciated because they were. ALL rappers had to bring something NEW and ORIGINAL to the format. We didn't let just any rapper, singer, etc., represent us. WE as a black community had standards. Now we don't. Our kids don't. Every little creature that has an ounce of rebellion in them we glorify. We say they're keeping it real, when really they aren't. We don't have black pride anymore. We're happy with strippers, fake reality tv, and mumble music. So basically nothing is sacred to us anymore. Like I said earlier, DRAKE ALWAYS when at award shows. Even Mike, Prince, and Janet didn't when ALL the damn time. Cardi is celebrated regardless of her lack of class and respect for the black community, black men, and black women. But black women defend her when she doesn't defend the black woman. If we didn't play Cardi's music, then she wouldn't have a platform. To me, it's not about the culture vultures, it's about us, the black community having low morals, principles, integrity, standards, and pride. The only way the culture vulture can exist is if we give them life, and unfortunately we as the black community do just that. We are the ones that are breathing life into their careers.

    Because black folks love inviting everybody to the cookout. All you have to do is pretend to like black culture.

    When I started a new job I was being trained by a 43 year old, overweight virgin who was a Trey Songz stan. She would buy the VIP package for any concert he gave in GA, TX and LA. I was looking like ? when she wore her 2 new bracelets that were designed with those block letters. Her left arm bracelet spelled Tremaine so I asked oh that’s your husband? Then she pointed to her right arm that spelled Trigga. I was looking crazy then she told me about her obsession. ? She was a good trainer though. ?

  • Jackie Byrd

    Me too because it is no way things have sunk this low but like one comment said, this generation deserves someone like Cardi B because they don't care about things like talent, they just want to party and enjoy. Their attention span is very short so it will be another one like Cardi soon. I am not a fan, but there is a place for her and opportunity knocked and she answered.

  • dru and neil

    Yes girl....

  • Maxx

    Even though her social antics may be a lil too much I love her drive & work ethic. She shows up & shows out & performs well. Her music has good beats & is entertaining. She can be a tad too vulgar at times & certainly needs to stop addressing every freakin thing because that will be her downfall. Time to fall back & leave a lil mystery. I don't even care for Beyoncé much, but she & her team knew that she shouldn't be talking much publically because she was not the best speaker (she has gotten better) but she knows to shut her mouth & keep the hater's guessing.

  • Inconvenient Truth

    And that is why black people cannot reestablish a sense of community because too many us are willfully ignorant, selfish and discipline deficient to boycott against those who seek to keep us oppressed and or denegrate us. In short too many blacks think just like you.

  • https://play.nylaxy.com/twitch twitch.tv/Nylaxy

    Because she downed black people until the culture benefited her. Like a vulture... swooping down on what's believed to be decay to feast on it. That's how.

  • Parent

    For someone that just got her body done, her ass/vag area is not cute. Looking kind of saggy.

  • Reenaface

    I blame corporate for this shit, most underrated artists have more talent in their pinky toe than infectious B. And at the rate that she and Offset keep getting in trouble with the law, you have to wonder do they really want their bought for careers or nah?????

  • scarlet_n_gray

    This!

  • Renee26

    I read it like it's more of a popularity contest than talent

  • Renee26

    Do ghost writers get awards too??

  • Renee26

    Ok ok

  • Inconvenient Truth

    She won a Grammy for an album full of lyrics she recited but did not write. I'm hoping Meghan obliterates her career seeing as how she is actually of the culture and has talent. Cardi is just another Kartrashian, emulating black women, stealing black culture, chasing black men while having no respect for bw. They recognize our value, know they'll never truly own it for themselves and need us to believe they are better than us. Sad thing is it works on most black folks muddled minds.

  • Maxx

    Most artist do not write their own material. Not sure why people keep pointing that out, it means nothing. Some people are meant to write, some to entertain.

  • Renee26

    Her bootie has been sagging for a while... She had back alley shots in the past... I wonder if she needs some fixing

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    She’s black herself.. just Lightskin and of Dominican ethnicity

  • Inconvenient Truth

    Not most, the wack and those that copy the culture but weren't apart of making it.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Yo tambien

  • chris

    You kept it 1000

  • Mark mcharm

    Because hip hop was born on writing your own lyrics that is why big bank hank had bad karma sadly.

  • Mark mcharm

    He actually has talent

  • Anyway

    Same here!

  • Yup, I said it

    That's why Beyonce, JayZ and everyone else thst counts boycott these award shows. They are bogus.

  • The Art

    The Grammy's have never really recognized real hiphop talent, they typically just recognized the most popular hiphop acts. They probably don't even really consider hiphop to be real music.

    As for Cardi, she's a product of the evolution of hiphop. Hiphop is a global phenomenon that has touched almost every culture on the planet. It's impossible to claim exclusivity to it anymore. It's not like country music that's limited to a niche crowd or rock and pop music that requires a little more effort, a bigger budget, and a bit more talent.

    Hiphop is relatively easy to get into: a catchy beat, some charisma, a few clever lines, a ton of marketing and BOOM! you're a star!! How many mumbling and fumbling rap idiots are on the radio right now not saying a damn thing, but making money hand over fist? How many rappers, in general have 3 or more Grammy's and multi platinum hits, where as real talented singers and musicians have struggled to get one hit that barely goes gold to earn at least 1 Grammy?

    Hiphop is sexy because it provides the very REAL hope of a better life to a LOT of otherwise hopeless and talentless people. Let's just keep it 100!

  • Li-Wright

    Nah, that's her vagina. And I agree with Sandra. It don't take much talent these days to win awards, they're giving them out like candy. I don't watch the awards shows because it's like a long concert.

  • Ni Ni

    "This generation deserves an artist like Cardi B," wrote one disgusted social media user.
    _________
    I agree, a bunch of darn ignorant junkies. At least my generation of junkies had class and talent?

  • Li-Wright

    Nah, blame the youngsters who don't know the difference between real talent and just MEH talent. You can go to any urban street corner and hear somebody rapping.

  • teather

    The music industry took advantage of us for years. When we got smarter about distribution and rights to our own music, they took it here. They punish us for not playing their game and reward those like this one you noted here. I don't watch those shows so I only know her when you all post things like this. She's very difficult to digest for me, but to each his own. I understand to some extent that ppl like her for simply shock value, which is really profitable these days. I just know that if a woman that was black said the things she says that woman would never have endorsement deals, etc. It would simply not be ok.

  • Anyway

    Not as much as black folks though. I see mostly white Latinos and the Jlo, Zoe Saldana type on their covers. I think they're embarrassed to claim her.

  • Yup, I said it

    No one has a better work ethic than a prostitute working for their next hit (of dope).
    Cardi just wanted a reason to cock up her leg like a dog in heat and show her cooter because that was really unnessecary.

  • The Art

    I get what you're saying, but the industry didn't force anyone to buy her music. For some reason people just seem to like her. Some things can't always be explained. I just think he's conducive to the times and is appealing to the youngins. When they out grow her, she'll be finished.

  • Yup, I said it

    When women behave like that make the think of the line ole Mr, said from The Color Purple:

    "Old Mr.:
    She black as tar, nappy-headed, got legs like baseball bats, and I hear she got that nasty women's disease."

  • Ni Ni

    They will realize the damage in about 20 years, at least the black people that are really from black culture

  • GinJen

    Damn lol

  • Bleu Lantern

    Mimicking old soul, funk and R&B records is not talent. Many of the notes on the studio versions he cannot hit live. Why is he the face of R&B? There are so many talented VOCAL and DANCING R&B men who get overlooked. They studied us and now dominate OUR genres.

  • Ni Ni

    ?

  • Ni Ni

  • Maxx

    Okay, coming from that point of view I understand, but again, most artist don't write their own music. Hip Hop included. It isn't right, but it is where we are. Trust me I miss the strength of the lyrics that were out back in the day that were really talking about something & made you feel some real s***

  • Truth Hurts

    so they shouldnt brag about how many that they have then either. they should throw them all away

  • Reina1718

    U rite, i agree

  • Maxx

    I have never heard him sing live, but I love his voice from what I hear otherwise. Can't take that away from him. Even those that can sing now a days are having their voices altered by studio.

  • Maxx

    That's what I was going to point out. These people all come from us anyway. Their culture may be different in ways, but they black too.

  • Reina1718

    I see this girl spilling all the industry dirt once the ppl are over her & not playing her music

  • Maxx

    Ya'll do know Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Panamanians, etc. they all are black, just different cultures

  • Reina1718

    Buying barely matters, as long as you streaming u good.

  • xxxgracious

    Yall remember Roscoe Dash. When I was a senior he was the most popping guy in music for us. Everyone was blasting his mixtapes. Literally 10 years later he drives for Lyft. I agree once the youngins get older they'll move on to something else. I'm almost thirty and could care less about music like I did when I was 17.

  • Reina1718

    Its a joke& disrespect to artist like michael, whitney etc

  • Reina1718

Fame can be a gift that evaporates into a curse. The industry and how it operates and what to promote or commercialize to a certain appeal is almost as corrupt as the government...?

  • MrsSpice1

    Lol...maybe she recognized that the industry can choose u and loose u for another...esp if that other is younger and more of what they want ?. Nicki is gettin too old for the gimmicks..now, she needs to reinvent her approach before she look up n be 40 still rappin about being a barbie girl n sht.

  • Clopretty

    Nicki's fall from the throne she thought she sat on has became too much to handle so she has settled for a more calm life with her man for now.

  • Well$$Well$$?

    Cardi can be annoying but she did have one of the best selling albums of 2018. I believe that's how Billboard bases it's awards right? Album sales etc.

  • Reenaface

    Oh yeah the youngsters can get it too but without the backing of a conglomerate global record companies we wouldn't be subjected to such nonsensical mess. I can bypass some youngsters with a shrug rapping jibberish on the streets but when you start assaulting my ears with that mess in the radio it's a different story and along with my visual senses. Corporate ain't looking for real talent and is backing meh talent.

  • Reenaface

    Black people don't own their image and that's why it her races have full carte blanche to walk through and takeover. If we weren't so willing to invite everyone through then we wouldn't be discussing culture vulture issues. Other races believe in self preservation meaning they preserve and preside over their culture, they're neighborhoods but when it comes to us our shit is all over the place.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    These awards don’t bother me, I’m not impressed, even when it wasn’t Cardi winning them!

    Awards are industry promotional and marketing tools!

    I saw a documentary, and found out Marvin Gaye didn’t win not one Grammy for any of his legendary music, until shortly before his death, S Healing, they were bogus then, even worst now!

    Cardi’s talent is her personality and popularity as a mediocre rapper, why she has to be loud and seen, distractions. Why she does “shock (gross) theater!”

    Charting big and making money moves isn’t enough for her because she knows her skill level and range of talent! At heart, she’s a VERY successful, glammed up “hood Rat!”

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    Talent doesn't always win. I watched a Spinners concert last week and it's a shame no Grammy they aren't in the hall of fame. Award shows used to mean something when I was a kid, not so much now.

    I don't think she is a culture vulture. Hispanics have always been a part of New York Hip Hop. I actually like her playing up her Hispanic side, she is playing the HOT LATINA and I don't hear Jennifer Lopez or Gloria Esteban complaining because they did it too. The world has changed, Whitney Houston was a creation- she was totally opposite of what she portrayed and I think that act likely was the reason behind her addiction. Be yourself, ratchet and all- Teyana Taylor went the sex kitten route and she is beyond talented, sex sells.

  • GinJen

    Have you all seen the unredacted picture with her whole vag hanging out? Beyond shameful!! She has very reckless behaviors and is very impulsive and undisciplined. As women, we have to move with purpose and watch how we present ourselves in public. If not for self, for our damn children. Who wants their mom's vag on full display for everyone in the world to see..and forever and ever on the internet?? I get that she don't want the responsibility of being a role model for other's children, but what about being one for your own damn daughter? Once you become a mother, you should be especially careful about what you do and how you do it in public. And what kind of husband would allow his wife's cooch to be out like that? You can tell offset is trash too.. A real man would try to camouflage his women's goods with her dress, his hand, or somethin if they HAD to do that particular pose! She knew that she left the house without panties on, so why pose like that, show cooch, then get online and argue that her cooch was not her cooch but her a$$?? I used to be impartial to Cardi, but now I feel like she's undisciplined, uncaring, uncouth trash. https://media0.giphy.com/media/ZmNEGGIB9mkH6/giphy.gif

    I admit I don't like her. Historically "black music" has.borrowed from the African diaspora. Whether hot polyrhythms or from "toasting". Music is fluid and global. I love Motown but where would they've been without congueros in the 60s?

  • Anji

    Which makes it easy for us musicians to work with them...unlike Europeans who don't feel complexities In rhythm. African vibes are strong.

  • Anji

    So hate on. I breathe music and prefer musical talent period.?

  • 1BlueStar

    Her stomach and underarm steas look horrible!

  • Yup, I said it

    Her stomach looks like a slab of uncooked pork.

  • Oh Tommie

    This sounds bad...but at least she isn’t mayo flavored....

  • Yup, I said it

    That's how a person with some self respect would feel. To her this was a 25 cent peep show. She was a stripper that did totally nude dancing. She's used to spreading eagle v formation in the buff nightly to pay her bills.

    No it don't! I agree with you.

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Shiii...what album are you talking about? You like that kind of music?

  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    Cardi...is just a disgrace to life. Everything about her is a no...just everything. Those wigs and make up really help her out. She is everything that young girls should be opposed to. No class, no education, talentless, profane language all of the time, naked all of the time, and just a loud mouth stank azz hoe. Her stomach...omg. What is it? What happened? Did the surgery not go right? Her stomach is a whole other shade of something. She actually was the worse looking and the worse dressed. She just gives me a headache. Uggghhh.

    Quadroon types open the door for the complete takeover & gentrification of black music... just look at rock & roll

    goddddaammn!! for REAL??? wow. i haven't seen an awards show in years and i ain't never watching.

  • free

    if i were nicki, i'd try to reinvent myself. it's really cardi's time right now. she's like trump; she ain't going away no matter what. if nicki comes out, she's got to come out 200%, but she can't really fight the machine.

  • free

    black rap is selling CHARACTERS, not MUSIC. this bytch is a character. a "lift yourself up from your bootstraps" hood rat inspiration for all other rats. she went from stripper to rapper to wife to mother to icon and you can too! not only that, you can "be true to yourself" with no consequences. this is the same shyt as the rappin' killers, dealers, and kingpins where mf's from the hood started doing the same shyt they heard on a record and went they ass right to jail. the sad part is they can just as easily find a stripper who got a degree and write rhymes for her and market her but that ain't gonna happen cause it ain't gonna sell. as people are mentioning below, somebody is buying this shyt or she woulda been dropped already.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    I still like Cardi. She needs a Life Coach/Mentor/Therapist/Spiritual Mother because she is so super sensitive.

  • Karen Brady

    Your first sentence ?

  • Ayeola George

    a trace? just go to Cuba... i've been... lots of beautiful chocolate people that look like me... at the same time there are white and mixed race Cubans, some who live in the exact same environment, eat the same type of food, listen to the same type of music etc. and you want them somehow to act different because they are a different colour? I think we need to take in context when we speak about our Latin American brothers and sisters.

    I guess no one talked bout the vulture taylor that got on stage with the drumline and tried a Beyonce' https://media2.giphy.com/media/pq2pU6B2Ht3pu/giphy.gif

  • Nita Pie

    its a little Cardi in everybody, what people fell to realize is she had a mass following before love and hip hop. Thats how Mon Scott found her, she has never pretended to be nothing but herself which happens to be gutter, ratchet, loud sometimes to much. But idk where you from but that same bitch live next door to me and on the corner she just older, ran thru and got 5 kids with 4 different daddies. That why she sell.

  • Nita Pie

    Beyonce was not the first person to perform with a drumline, Taylor will not be the last to perform with a drumline. Get over it

  • Topic Influencer

    I didn't like it. But it was pointed out she has used the band concept previously. Still don't like it

  • Topic Influencer

    So Hispanics haven't been present in hip hop from the start? There were no Hispanics at Kool Here's community room parties when hip hop was born? No Hispanic MCs hopped on the mic? No Hispanic break dancers? No Hispanic DJs?

  • WutizstillHERE!

    If she did it in a different form it would have been different but it was definately a rip off sparkly tassles and all soo whoeveryouare https://media3.giphy.com/media/QqostCXAat440/giphy.gif

    Thats every Drumline college performance. They mocking the drumline, majorettes are sparkly. Check out the HBCU performances that is not NEW. Beyonce did a homage to black colleges. Have you never see Drumline.

  • Wildcat34

    I don't get the separation. You are aware the 'black Americans' are African right?

  • Truth Or Die

    Most dont know the history of Hip Hop starting in the BX where blacks and Hispanics lived side by side in the ghetto and helped create the genre. The issue with Cardi is not a race or ethnic vulture issue its degenerate/dysfunctional behavior being pushed to the forefront of popular culture by the powers that be using artists like Cardi as a vessel.

  • Reenaface

    But notice who he was targeting in his video and song for "Beautiful". Black and brown women which there isn't anything wrong with it all but if the others don't see visuals of themselves in songs and videos praising their standard of beauty than songs and videos like "Beautiful" won't get recognized at the Grammys.

  • Topic Influencer

    This. Bc Imma need folks to stop calling her a culture vulture based on the Hispanic part. Hispanics have ALWAYS been present in hip hop. If you dont like her bc of her behavior then say that. But culture vulture to a Hispanic in hip hop is a bold ass lie.

  • GinJen

    I see he has settled into his role as her nasty, cringy ACCESSORY. No one mentions him at award shows unless their mentioning him being her accessory in outlandish behavior. Now that the dust has settled in his cheating scandal, he has willingly cranked up his public display of affection and has become this overly obsessed, infatuated, sex crazed husband. Before.. he sat at her award's performance looking unimpressed and unfazed.... now.. it's tongue hanging, tongue licking, booty grabbing, and pu$$y showing.

  • GinJen

    !!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Topic Influencer

    It irks my nerves that folks dont know that Latinos been in hip hop since inception

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    I have a question thank god its an open post...Is it wrong to hate a child??? I have a gf who's litte girl is a terror. I mean killing animals getting smart and rolling her eyes... Taking people's phone and charging 100s in app purchases and all she does is bats her eyes and her momma doesn't chastize her... I try to keep as far away from this child as much possible (and hide my wallet and phone) but its to the point where I can only be around her mom when its just us without her daughter IDK what to do??

  • Lisa Left Eye

    Wow sounds like a sociopath in the making. Me personally i don't find it wrong to hate children. Every now and then ill read a story of child abuse/harm and sympathize with the abuser because i know the hell some kids can stir up. Society still views kids as always faultless and innocent, for the most part. So just keep it to urself but try to minimize contact with the kid for ur own sanity

  • tintin

    I like Cardi and honestly it definitely is weird that her music is what is considered quality nowadays. But in a time and age where social media is what makes you who you are, i am not surprised she is as big as she is.. Even before Cardi began her career, she had those dumb videos acting all ratchet which of course enabled her to build her brand along with the help of Love and Hip Hop. She is smart and honestly she needs to ride this gravy train as much as she can.

    I don't call her a culture vulture, she's hispanic, hip hop and rap is not only black. Let her be. Congrats to her but in regards to her music, i don't think she is worthy of all these awards. But the pickings are slim nowadays and in order to win , you have to act a fool and Cardi takes the cake in that.

    remember when Nicki came out, she was acting all weird with them voices, rapping in cartoon character and her pussy was printed out on front page. We accepted the foolishness with her, so might as well accept the foolishness with Cardi.

    someone new is on the way, just like Nicki light is dim, Cardi's will also be out soon so she needs to scoop it all while she can.

  • Lisa Left Eye

    The deterioration of black music didn't start with cardi, and it won't end with her. As with all things that exist to turn a profit, dollars and cents will determine what is allowed to exist in the space of black culture. You can complain about Cardi, but if you aren't financially supporting the artist who you think belong in this space, then ur opinion is just hot air

  • The Art

    Hispanics were definitely a part of hip hop from the start. Blacks just dominated it.

  • Mar Love

    Duh. Who doesn't know that times change. And the world that we live in now on some instances isn't changing for the better. All over the world. She isn't the only one in the culture that is a mess. Let that lady make her bread take care of her child and stop hating. Why does it bother y'all so much about the artist. It is what it is. Back in the day the were all drug addicts and pedophiles . How bout this. Post everyday about the real injustices of what is going on in the black community. Police shootings, gun violence, bullying, black on black crime, etc. Oh I forgot, we don't care about that. That's not interesting enough. God bless black America.
    We are some hating, jealous, coveting people. Leave that lady alone.

  • Greatgrape37

    Exactly

  • chaisun

    Hispanic isn’t a race. Hip hop is an African American art form created within the black community. We aren’t allowed or welcomed into other music or culture spaces that “reinvent” and have down right stolen from us but it's expected for us to welcome everyone else. These same people have laughed at us and made a mockery out of our music, hair, bodies, complexions, food, our history, the way we speak etc. We have a culture that everyone latches on to and we have every right to have expectations and not want people like her in. Our African American culture is constantly disrespected but is the most copied. Not even just us but everywhere. Hispanics laughed at reggae and dancehall, thought it was trash then they came out with reggaeton...something they think they’ve created. Or the Ghana must go bags that sell for hundreds of dollars at high end good stores that white people laughed at for decades. Those are on two of the millions of things that have been rebranded by culture vultures. She’s not black. She’s Asian / Indian at most. You can look at her parents and see that they don’t have high African admixture. All over Brooklyn you see women that are Caribbean Trini or Guyanese that look just like her that aren’t black.

  • chaisun

    She’s praised for being ratchet when there are women like her everywhere that society looks down upon. Only she and women that look like her can get away with behaving like that.

  • RedBullWoke

    Drake seems like a genuine person and I like his songs but I do agree with most of what you said. You made some great points. Thanks for that.

  • chaisun

    People also should acknowledge that Hispanic isn’t a race.

  • Malai

    I don’t understand the women that go without panties to events..I can understand being at home or whatever but don’t yall have discharge? Are y’all just draining on yourselves? Like I need details from those that know ?

  • chaisun

    We’re all African though. There’s a reason why black Brazilians and is all over the diaspora dance the same and have similar music. That’s because we’re all African. I don’t understand the separation either. How can we “borrow” from what we are.

    You forgot about her Pornhub award- 2

  • Let them eat cake

    black folks let it happen. we continue to invite folks to the cookout that shouldn't be there. We don't preserve our culture like other races, shrug. and the grammys and all these award shows aren't even what they used to be anymore so whatever. Anyway cardi is trash, PERIOD.

  • Reina1718

    ????

  • Nita Pie

    Exactly, the women that are being looked down upon are the ones that are praising her, because in their world thats whats praised. Loud weaves, stripping, rachetness, drugs, guns. Somebody made it, that sounds like them, that looks like them, that strips to pay bills, that may take a man to a hotel and her tranny homegirl come out and they robbed him. This is LIFE for people in the hood and sometimes (ALOT of the time) they dont have a choice. This is why she and the things she does is praised, Just my opinion though. Im telling you I know alot of Cardi's that are just living, she just happen to make it big.

  • chaisun

    Yep. Agree completely.

  • tintin

    lmao. why am i laughing so hard at this

    Retadi B isnt black! Why do y'all keep running with this lie! Google her parents they are not black people. Google her family they're not black either. Her own husband has said she isn't black! She herself has said she isn't black. Her damn family doesn't have any black people in it. She's a mutt! Goodness gracious! Y'all really sitting up here claiming all Hispanics are black when that's a lie! Hispanic isn't a race. Little known fact black domincans are actually Haitians. I'm talking about real black dominicans not the ones that look like Retardi .You have Hispanics that are black, white, mixed etc. But they're not exclusively black. Sammy Sosa is a black Dominican, Retardi B isn't. Cecile Cruz and her husband were black Cubans. Ricky Ricardo was a white one. See the difference now? Smh. Also not all Hispanics are mixed. Some are monoracial aka no Spanish or "Taino" add mixture. Some are just Spanish speaking fully black and or white people. I've seen fully black Hispanics and they look nothing like Retardi. The ones that look like her don't call themselves black because they're not. They look black but they're generationally mixed people. That's all. They're not full black people. Learn about history of the island of hispaniola before you start talking nonsense.

    Decline in artistry definitely, sampling and lack of TRUE musical instrument skills, decline of bands , the end of ROCK all add to the lower artistic standards ........HOWEVER..."Culture Vulture" is NOT a term for Cardi....Hip Hop/RAP started in NY with Puerto Rican/Latinos and Black Americans...they can ALL claim Hip Hop.

    Cardi Is Mexicannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. I call all Spanish people Mexicans. That’s just the racist in me. Lol Who cares what white people think ? I don’t. And never will.
