Just when Cardi B should be flying high after her Grammy Award win for Best Rap Album (Invasion of Privacy) Sunday night (Feb. 10), the rapper found it necessary to go off on all the haters on social media.
Apparently, some people didn’t think Cardi, who made history becoming the first female solo rapper to win in that category, deserved the award. The 26-year-old was sick of all the negativity going around and in a video she posted on Instagram, which has since been deleted along with her entire Instagram account, Cardi goes off.
“It’s not my style for people to put other people down to uplift somebody else. That’s not my style and that’s not what I’m with. I don’t support that,” she began the video.
“However, I’ve been taking a lot of sh*t today and I saw a lot of sh*t last night… I work hard for my motherf**kin album. I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow’ and everybody was like, Cardi got snubbed! Cardi got snubbed! Now this year’s a f–king problem? My album went two times platinum my n***a and every chart that there was my album was always top ten, number one album as well!” she said.
“I locked myself in the studio for 3 months” she continued.”Didn’t went to sleep in my own bed sometimes for four days, pregnant… while everybody was harassing me like ‘You not gonna do it, we know you pregnant, your careers over’ that s**t dwelling in my mind while I’m working.”
Then the video cuts off.
Soon after, Cardi deleted her Instagram account altogether. It remains to be seen if the award-winning rapper will return to the medium. She is still active on Twitter and is retweeting congratulatory messages from her famous friends in the industry.
