Cardi B makes it clear "I've Been Grinding"
Many of us don't like to hear people complain and be all winy about their life in general. But there are times when you need to just clear the air and set the record straight...once and for all. In no other way to do it the best, Cardi B did just that so everyone can know she know how she got to the billboard top #8 position and its all the way from there! On a busy Sunday for entertainment Instagram releases, the rapper Cardi B wants people to know how hard she's worked for this."Y'all think that, 'Oh, [Bodak Yellow] came out and it was just that easy'," stated Cardi.
"I've been really hustling for my career since I was 21 my n****." She goes on to detail how she been on podcasts with few listeners, roll up to various radio station and beg the DJ's to play her music and even agree to perform in many "ratchet" clubs across the United States, all for the sake of turning up for her true fans and proving that she could build a following. She also mentions how she's gotten snubbed by some of her favorite artists (although she wouldn't say who) when she asked for a feature and has been offered record deals for paltry sums of money - all things that she considers just part of the journey.
However, it doesn't sound like she's ready to forgive or forget."I've been really hustling for this motherf**king s**t," she exclaimed at the end of the video. "This s**t wasn't given to me bitch." Strong words from Cardi to be sure, but this isn't the first time she's expressed frustration with fair weather fans or even celebrities who all of a sudden want to be her friend just because she's now reached a certain level of fame. Remember the mystery woman she called out? although there are those Cardi B can she'd like to say similar words about, or at least it sounds that way, given her disposition in this new Instagram video, yet re framed for doing so.
Yet, in a reversal, Cardi B had many celebrities to show her love for posting and united with the artist in support.
