You probably love to hate her, Cardi B is a chart-topping artist who is making history in the music scene, her song “Bodak Yellow” debuted in 2017 and took the top spot on the us billboard charts.
Making her the first female rapper to reach number one in 19 years but if you rewind a couple of years you would see Cardi struggling to pay bills, dropping out of college and turning to exotic dancing as a way to make it rain today.
Cardi B was a member of the bloods gang
Rumors started after Cardi dropped her single called “Bodak Yellow“, where she wrapped the phrase “These is Bloody Shoes”. People started to claim that she had connections with the gang or she did in the past.
But the rapper herself later confirmed it during an interview with GQ she was part of the gang in some ways still is and yes she regrets ever getting involved she told her story saying
““When I was 16 years old, I used to hang out with a lot of”—agonizing,
cliff-diver pause—”Bloods. I used to pop off with my homies. And
they’d say, ‘Yo, you really get it poppin’. You should come home. You
should turn Blood.’ And I did. Yes, I did.”
She describes it and says it is similar to “a fraternity, or a sorority,” it wasn’t about the violence or money for her but she wants young girls to know that they should not join one.
Cardi remained silent about it for so long, because she didn’t want to lose endorsement deals or have it affect on the chances of her getting a big signed contract deal. now that she has that she disclosed her connection.
She doesn’t have a driver’s license
She’s no problem rapping about expensive cars and she even owns Lamborghinis and Bentleys of her own, but usually people who drive these sorts of cars have their driver’s license.
She openly talked about the fact that she owns five wildly expensive cars that she can’t even drive and she proved it to the world. During an episode of “Carpool Karaoke” where she got behind the wheel of James Cordon’s Range Rover in a parking lot, they had set up cones and flags to try and teach her how to drive through a mini driving course but she failed miserably.
They even had her try to parallel park for the first time and she ended up backing up over a camera but James asked her what we are all wondering “why own so many cars if you can’t even drive them” she responded by saying “to take pictures with”.
Apparently she couldn’t rap about having expensive cars before owning them. She said that she was being an imposter. The reason for not getting her license is also very simple she said that “she’s scared!! Driving makes her scared”.
Her body swells when she goes on a plane
Now it’s a pretty common thing for people’s feet to swell on airplanes, basically all the liquids in your body sink to your feet during the altitude change. But the reason for Cardi swelling is a bit more serious because it comes to her plastic surgery.
After flying one day she posted a close-up video that showed her ankles and feet severely swollen. In the video she said that it was a scary side effect from her recent liposuction and breast augmentation.
In the video she said you cannot be doing all these shows because you’re not fully healed. She said “I gotta get better the way that my body is swelling up when Ii catch planes and it’s scary that I’d be freaking out.”
She has a younger sister
I just assumed that Cardi didn’t have any siblings; I was just left in the dark when it came to her having siblings. She has one younger sister named Hennessy and it is not a made-up name like Cardi’s.
Her real name is Hennessy Carolina like kruller’s sister she too is becoming a star but for a different talent. Hennessey is now a social media star after she started uploading a series of videos about her career as a stripper. Some of them went viral on Instagram and Tik tok.
The 22 year old sounds just like Cardi, they share a lot of those crazy sounds and facial expressions and that very interesting slang.
When asked how she got her name she says it came from her dad who went straight to the delivery room after a party where he had been drinking his favorite Hennessy. He suggested it as her daughter’s new name and apparently Cardi’s mom really liked it so they went with it and named her Hennessy.
How did Cardi B get her name
We’ve all wondered this at some point in time, there is no way this girl’s real name is Cardi B. her real birth name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar. Which was chosen by her parents when she was born in the Bronx.
She didn’t switch her name until she started to pursue her career as a rapper, because her sister’s name is Hennessy she says that everyone they grew up with used to call her Bacardi. So when she was growing up in New York she was known as Bacardi which she actually liked.
She told Wendy Williams “then I shortened it to Cardi B, the B stands for whatever depending on the day”
She went to college but dropped out
People often make comments to the rapper saying that she isn’t educated, but she did actually attend school for some time. She attended Renaissance High School for Musical Theater and Technology which was a small specialty school on the Herbert H. Lehmann Campus.
Cardi actually loved going to school and she was bummed when she had to drop out, she has opened up about her past and explained that she once had a dream of being a history teacher but had to leave school because she couldn’t afford it any longer. She just couldn’t support herself.
but she doesn’t give up on getting an education she recently revealed that she still aims on going back to school she said “Maybe when I’m older, I’ll have time to go to college why not, it’s never too late to make your dreams come true”.
Cardi also admitted that leaving college gave her the time and opportunity to get caught up in music so maybe it all happened for a reason.
She got plastic surgery at 19 years old
If there’s one thing Cardi doesn’t hide, it’s all the plastic surgery that she’s gotten. She flaunts it, she talks about it, and she fully admits it to her fans.
She even shared that the first time she ever went under the Surgery was at 19 years old. During that time of her life she was working as a stripper so she felt that it would enhance her career.
She got breast implants done and butt injections; she was making enough money from the strip club so that she could fund the surgeries on her own.
She used to work at a grocery store
Cardi wasn’t always a rapper and she wasn’t always a stripper, surely she had a first job like the rest of us.
She was a cashier at the grocery supermarket which basically sold all organic stuff, but she ended up getting fired from her job because she was showing up late too often and was giving her co-workers way too many discounts. It was actually the manager from the supermarket that suggested she become a stripper.
Stripping saved her life
It is no secret that she made a living from being an exotic dancer but she claims that it was a saving grace at that point in her life. She was kicked out of her mom’s house, so she moved in with her abusive ex-boyfriend’s home where he lived with his sisters and dogs.
She revealed that the home was filled with bed bugs and she had horrible asthma due to the two pit bulls that he had. His sister would also steal the little bit of money that she had and she just said that she felt trapped. Even though he was cheating on her and abusing her she said that she had nowhere to go because she literally couldn’t afford it.
It was actually stripping that gave her the financial freedom and confidence that she needed to get back on her own two feet and move out of that place.
