Cardi B says she paved the way for the new wave of women in rap

Cardi B has said she believes she paved the way for the latest wave of women in rap.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the Bronx native spoke about her record-breaking music career. She also shared that she believed her success changed the way record labels looked at women who rap – leading to more female rappers being signed.

“These labels [were] not believing in repping new rap artists,” she said. “People from every single label have f**king told me this sh*t in my face. They started signing new female rappers after I got signed.”

“Whether some bitches could be the greatest rappers [or] they just make good music – at the end of the f**king day, guess what? They’re in your playlist right now,” she added.

Elsewhere in the interview, Cardi B gave an update on her long-awaited second album. The record is still without a name or a rollout plan, and is missing at least three more songs.

“I take my music so f**king seriously that that’s why I don’t put it out,” she said about the six-year delay. “If it’s not perfect to my ear, if every fucking word doesn’t sound like it’s pronounced right, if the beat is overpowering the words or the words is overpowering the beat, I don’t want to put it out.”

Her next album will serve as the follow-up to her record-breaking debut LP "Invasion Of Privacy". The record won Best Rap Album at the 2019 Grammys, making her the first-ever solo female act to win the award.

Last week in a now-deleted tweet, Cardi B said she was delaying the release of her second album. “Anyway, NO album this year,” she wrote. “I don’t care. I’m relaxing this year. [I’m] dropping these features I already committed to and travelling and enjoying my summer.”

This seems to be untrue as a representative for the rapper confirmed to Rolling Stone that an album was still on the cards for this year.

Earlier this year, Cardi shared two pop-trap songs in the form of "Enough (Miami)" and "Like What (Freestyle)". The latter sampled Missy Elliott’s 1999 hit "She’s A Bitch".

Also, other singles such as the Lil Durk and Kanye West-assisted "Hot Sh*t", her chart-topping controversial hit with Megan Thee Stallion "WAP", and the upbeat "UP" are expected to feature on the album. Cardi also featured on Shakira‘s "Puntería". It served as the opening track from the Columbian pop singer’s latest album ‘Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran’.

In other news, Cardi B has faced backlash after she forgot the name of the designer behind her Met Gala look, referring to them as “Asian”. She commented on the situation, saying she “was being rushed to the front of the line”, making her “very scared” on the red carpet.
