Cardi B bio
The future rap queen was born on October 11, 1992, in Bronx (one of the five boroughs of New York). She was born in a low-income family of a Dominican father and mother of African-Trinidad origin. She spent a lot of time at her grandmother's house in Manhattan, where she acquired her present peculiar manner of the pronunciation of words.
Living not in the most prosperous, Latin American area of the city, at the age of 16 she was already in touch with members of the Bloods street group that was looting and re-selling.
Then she worked in a supermarket, was a stripper at a club, and studied at the Borough of Manhattan Community College. In 2013, Belkalis began posting interesting videos of her rap-style songs on Vine and her Instagram page that suddenly attracted lots of followers.
In 2015, the girl became the heroine of the reality show “Love and Hip-Hop” about the life of people connected with the music of this genre. The number of subscribers to her Instagram snowballed. In the same period, she released her debut video for the song “Cheap Ass Weave”. After participating in the sixth and seventh season of the show, the singer announced her retirement and intention to devote herself entirely to music.
In March 2016, her first mixtape was released. It was called “Gangsta Bitch Musici, Vol. 1”, and included 13 compositions. Its cover, which depicts a man with a tattooed back, leaning between the legs of the singer, was the cause of a lawsuit.
The fashion model Kevin Brophy allegedly recognised himself in the phot and noticed the identical tattoos he had. He was outraged by the publication of his photo in such a perspective without his knowledge and permission. Through the court, he demanded moral damages, valuing him at $ 5 million.
In January 2017, the second mixtape collection appeared and was called “Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2” and included ten new tracks.
In 2018, about 13 million fans had already followed the creative work of the glamorous rap icon on Instagram. At the same time, her first studio album, “Invasion of Privacy,” was at the top of the Billboard 200. Subsequently, it twice received platinum status in the USA (with three million copies sold), and was named in the press as "one of the most powerful debuts of the millennium" and brought her Grammy.
The rapid development of the singer's career was not without scandals. In 2018, at the after-party of Harper's Bazaar magazine, which was held as part of the New York Fashion Week, she fought with the rap singer Nicky Minaj, accusing her of spreading lies about her achievements.
