This week, the “Bartier Cardi” rapper became only the third artist in history to have their first three entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the top 10 simultaneously, the other two artists are The Beatles and Ashanti. Chris Brown posted on his Instagram yesterday that he and a bunch of other artists have achieved three songs in the top 10 on the chart simultaneously. Breezy clearly misunderstood the difference between having any three of your songs in the top ten at the same time and having your first three songs ever to enter the chart making it to the top ten at the same time.
Cardi B posted a response on Instagram clarifying her achievement for her detractors. “Yall say that I don’t know how to speak proper English, and I say that a lot of yall don’t know how to read,” she said. “Let me be clear! I did not make history for having three songs on the top 10 Billboard Hot 100 at the same time, that’s been done before, more than a few times! I made history for having my first threesongs ever to be entered on the charts hit the top 10 Billboard Hot 100 at the same time, and that has only been done three times.”
She ended her statement saying, “Respect my sh*t and let me live my best life in peace I just wanna be, I just wanna be, successful.” Cardi B’s breakout hit “Bodak Yellow” was the most streamed single by a female artist last year and since the start of the year, the track is seeing a new surge in momentum, jumping two places on the Hot 100 chart this week to No. 10. Can she repeat the same level of success this year with her pending debut album?
Cardi B says she was kicked out a Hilton hotel in Albany in upstate New York on Saturday after authorities accused her and her team of smoking weed, which she denies, adding that the allegation was racially-motivated.
Hotel reps declined to comment on the incident. Albany police confirmed to E! News that cops responded a report from the hotel but declined to give details. The incident took place after the “Bodak Yellow” rapper, who is from New York City, performed at Times Union Center in Albany, whose African-American population is less than 14 percent. No arrests were reported.
TMZ posted a video of Cardi B leaving the hotel. While walking, she called someone a “racist motherf–ker” and appeared to knock down a display.
“So me & my team got kicked out of this hotel in Albany cause my floor smell like weed mine You I hate weed,” she tweeted on Sunday morning.
She soon posted a series of selfie videos talking about the incident.
“You wanna know something? Albany is known for being racist,” she said. “The floor that I was staying in in my hotel room, it smelled like weed. So the cops came in the middle of the night, knocking on my manager and on my door, talking about that we were smoking weed and we gotta get kicked out.”
Cardi B said that she doesn’t even “talk about smoking weed” because “everybody knows that I do not smoke weed; I get very paranoid.”
“And none of my team members smoke weed,” she said. “We could all get drug tests—nobody smokes. Nobody smokes. Especially when I’m sleeping and…you’re not gonna do that to me. Mind you, everybody on the floor was Caucasian but you wanna kick us out.”
“And then n—as is just gonna pick out of everybody on the floor, Caucasians, that it was us that was smoking the weed in the middle of the night?” she said. “That s–t is not f–king right. Like, n—as was really being racists. Motherf–kers was being prejudiced and picking on who the f–k they thought that was smoking weed and you got the wrong f–king one. I’m telling you, I do not smoke weed.”
“And I really don’t want to be the one that pulls the ‘race card,’ like, ‘Oh, they did that ’cause they’re racist,’ but that is the only explanation that I could f–king find because I don’t understand, like, lemme tell you something, I don’t walk around with a whole entourage; it just be me, my manager, my security guard, the DJ and my dancers and nobody smokes weed,” Cardi B continued. “So for motherf–kers to just say like, ‘Oh, we’re kicking you guys out because there’s a smell of marijuana,’ so why don’t ya’ll search the room? And then they told us that earlier, there was some rap artist that was smoking weed and they got kicked out too. We’re not associated with them. So why- I just can’t. I can’t, really. I really can’t.”
Ahead of her rant, Cardi B had what appeared to be a drama-filled night. She shocked fans when she posted on Instagram Stories a video of herself that read, “Single.”
Cardi B, who is dating fellow hip-hop artist Offset, later wrote, “So listen babes, I exaggerated alil bit earlier cause I was really upset and the Bronx girl in me always have to go to the extreme. I came to my senses now. Im sorry…waffle house on me?”
She later wrote on Twitter, “Reasons why me and Offset got into it …I think he stoled my purple blanket but it wasn’t him so I’m still looking for the suspect.”
“Naaa but on a serious note I really loveeeee my man,” she added. “He was gifted to me from Jesus.”

The duo was once relationship goals for their fans but that’s not the case right now. On Saturday night, both Cardi B and Offset took shots at each other on Snapchat while the “Bodak Yellow” rapper went a step further to announced that she is single. Bardi posted a a photo of herself on Instagram showing the peace sign. “Peace nikka,” she wrote in the caption. The Migos rapper followed suit a short time later by posting the peace emoji on his Snapchat.
The folks on Twitter already have their theory and and all fingers are pointing to Cardi B ex-boyfriend Tommy who they claimed was released from prison three days ago. The Bronx rapper once said that she would help her ex get back on his feet when he leaves jail, so perhaps she is making good on that promise and that is not sitting well with Offset whom she has been dating since last year. There were no signs that their relationship was on the rocks so this bit of news came as a shocker to a lot of their fans and perhaps even their celebrity peers.
While she was a cast member on Love and Hip Hop New York, Cardi B and her relationship with Tommy was her main storyline. They two broke up after he went to prison but it seems like there is no love lost. While Cardi has been making a lot of posts on Instagram, Offset has been radio silent aside from the peace emoji. He even still has several photos of her up which means their could be a chance that they could patch things up. “Sometimes you gotta do sh*t the old you would do,” she wrote on IG. “So mfers know not to play with the NEW you!”
The Bronx rapper has been working on her debut album for the past few months all while she scored her first mainstream single and get a taste of hip hop history. Cardi B became the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill in 1998 to score a solo Billboard No. 1 song. She did it even before veterans like Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, and Remy Ma.
Last month, she teased a new single on Instagram Live that got fans raving and now this week she previewed an upcoming single while hosting a gig at a club. “Get money go hard every motherf***king day / Ain’t never been a fraud in my motherf**** life / Get money go hard damn f****ng right / Never mention these b*tches out of mother****** spite,” Bardi raps.
Hip hop fans have been weighing in on the new single and the reactions have been mixed so far. Some folks thinks that she stole Meek Mill’s flow from Dreams and Nightmares on this new single that sounds like another victory lap track. “I’m not a hater I’m just stating facts. She took kodak’s flow to make bodak yellow now she’s using meek’s flow from dreams and nightmares to make this,” one fan wrote, while another added, “Now she stealing Meek flow. Lmfao can she get her own style. First Kodak, then Drake, and now Meek.”
Cardi B new album doesn’t have a release date yet and there is no word from her camp when this new single will be available. Despite how you may feel about this single, Cardi is winning this year and her female fans can be heard in the background screaming. Take and listen below and let us know what you think in the comments.
Cardi B is still making “Money Moves” with his big performance at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards.
The ceremony was held in Miami last weekend, but it was broadcast on the network on Tuesday night. The New York rapper performed her chart topping single “Bodak Yellow” and got the audience pump in the process. The single is currently in it’s third week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Bardi made a grant entrance on the red carpet turning a lot of heads in the process. But she turned up the heat when she took the stage to perform “Bodak Yellow.” She had the entire audience rapping along to the lyrics word for word as she showed off her banging body with her dancers supporting her.
Cardi B won three BET Hip Hop Awards on Saturday night for Best New Artist, Hustler of the Year, and Single of the Year. Bardi continues to bath in musical success with her single “Bodak Yellow” continues to reign over the chart. The track is currently the most popular song on the planet for a third week straight.
Despite every female rapper congratulating the Queen emcee, yesterday Banks offload a Twitter tirade on Cardi B calling her the “poor man’s Nicki Minaj.” The Harlem rapper also accused black men of selling out for supporting Bardi and even singled out Charlamagne Tha God for helping the song “Bodak Yellow” reach number one on Billboard. Despite the hate there is only one of the two dancing all the way to the bank.
Last night Cari B posted an old photo of Azealia Banks dancing and rapping to “Bodak Yellow” while hinting that its haters like her who help get the song to number one. “One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1 cuz even the HATERS LOVE IT,” she tweeted. Before that she wrote on her timeline, “This is the happiest day of my life and no 1 will take this joy from me .I wish you sour patches a good day !Thats how happy I am.”

Several female rappers have congratulated Cardi B on her historic number one. Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott, Rapsody, Nicki Minaj, Dej Loaf, and Remy Ma were among the list of female rappers to congratulate her. She became the first female emcee since Lauryn Hill to score a solo Billboard Hot 100 number one song.
This is the happiest day of my life and no 1 will take this joy from me .I wish you sour patches a good day !Thats how happy I am .

Azealia Banks is perhaps the only female rapper on the planet right now who did not congratulate Cardi B on her No. 1 record on Billboard.
From Nicki all the way back to the OGs like Lauryn Hill and Queen Latifa have all congratulate Cardi B yesterday, but Azealia Banks don’t feel like she deserves the W that she is getting right now. The Harlem rapper offloads a rant on Twitter calling the “Bodak Yellow” rapper a “poor man’s Nicki Minaj.”
“She’s only black when black want to include themselves in a success story,” Banks tweeted. “Because I thought she was going to be a Latina hottie and not a poor mans nicki. It went the other way now I’m over it.” She also blasted Charlamagne Tha God who she claimed is the reason why Cardi B got the number one song in the country. “Charlemagne and black men in hiphop should have gotten me, remy AND nicki a number one before they gave cardi or iggy one,” she continues.
Some hip hop fans think that Azealia Banks is just a bitter female rapper who ain’t got nothing going on for her. Charlamagne will likely give her donkey of the day for the hundredth time for these series of tweets. Even several of the male rappers like J. Cole and Kodak Black have offered their congratulations to Cardi B who created hip hop history this week when she became the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill to get a number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Cardi B responded saying that she will not let Azealia Banks take away her joy. “This is the happiest day of my life and no 1 will take this joy from me .I wish you sour patches a good day !Thats how happy I am,” she tweeted. “Every single FEMALE RAPPER CONGRATULATED ME TODAY .Is the best feeling cause I listened to ALL OF THEM.”
Cardi B is letting her haters know that she is still winning and not a one-hit wonder.
To be fair to the New York rapper, her breakout single “Bodak Yellow” is currently at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and could very well make it to number one. If that is not winning then what else does she have to do to earn more respect. Some fans are saying that she needs another hit to prove herself. In a post on Instagram, Cardi B let the haters know that she is coming from nothing so that in itself is winning.
“Coming from nothing isn’t winning, doing everything they said I couldn’t because of my stripper past isn’t winning, taking care of my family isn’t winning, reaching the top of the billboard charts when everybody said NO isn’t winning?” she wrote. “If this ain’t winning sis you tell me what is!! I know you must be so busy and overbooked that finding the time to give me “advice” was hard!! But I talk to Christ and my mother everyday and I don’t need it!!”
Some folks then responded saying that being busy doesn’t mean that your winning, while others think that she has to prove that she is not another one-hit wonder. Are some fans being too critical of Cardi B and should give her props where its due, in particular for scoring one of the biggest rap songs this year.
Coming from nothing isn't winning, doing everything they said I couldn't because of my stripper past isn't winning, taking care of my family isn't winning, reaching the top of the billboard charts when everybody said NO isn't winning??? If this ain't winning sis you tell me what is!! I know you must be so busy and overbooked that finding the time to give me "advice" was hard!! But I talk to Christ and my mother everyday and I don't need it!!
