Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar (born October 11, 1992), known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter and television personality.[2] Born and raised in The Bronx, New York City, she first attracted attention for discussing her career as a stripper on social media; she became an Internet celebrity after several of her posts and videos went viral on Vine and Instagram.[3] From 2015 to 2017, she appeared as a regular cast member on the VH1 reality television series Love & Hip Hop: New York to follow her music aspirations, and released two mixtapes--Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 and Vol. 2.[4]

Cardi B has earned three number-one singles on the US Billboard Hot 100; "Bodak Yellow" made her the second female rapper to top the chart with a solo output--following Lauryn Hill in 1998, "I Like It" made her the first female rapper to attain multiple number-one songs on the chart, and her Maroon 5 collaboration "Girls Like You" extended that record.[5] Released through Atlantic Records, her critically acclaimed studio album Invasion of Privacy (2018), on which the first two songs were included, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and broke several streaming records.[6][7] That year, Time included her on their annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.[8]

Among her number of accolades, she has received two Grammy Award nominations, three American Music Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, nine BET Hip Hop Awards, a Billboard Music Award and more.

Early life

Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar was born on October 11, 1992 in The Bronx borough of New York City to a Dominican father and Trinidadian mother.[9][10] She was raised in the Highbridge neighborhood of the South Bronx,[11][12][13][14] and spent much time at her paternal grandmother's home in Washington Heights, which she credits with giving her "such a thick [...] accent."[15] As a youth, Cardi B was a member of the Bloods, and has said she was a gang member since the age of 16.[16][17] She went on to attend Renaissance High School for Musical Theater & Technology, a vocational high school on the Herbert H. Lehman High School campus.[18][19]

During her teenage years, Cardi B was employed at a supermarket in Lower Manhattan, which was the last job that she held before turning to stripping at the age of 19.[20][21] Upon being fired from the supermarket, her former manager recommended she work at a strip club. She has said she became a stripper to escape poverty and domestic violence, having been in an abusive relationship at the time.[22] Cardi B has also said becoming a stripper was positive for her life in many ways: "It really saved me from a lot of things. When I started stripping I went back to school."[23][24][25] She says stripping was her only way out, a way to earn enough money to escape her dire situation and get an education. Nonetheless, she eventually dropped out of college.[26]

In 2013, Cardi B began to gain publicity due to several of her videos going viral on social media, on Vine and her official Instagram page.[3]

Musical career

2015-16: Beginnings

In November 2015, Cardi B made her musical debut on Jamaican reggae fusion singer Shaggy's remix to his single "Boom Boom", alongside fellow Jamaican dancehall singer Popcaan.[27] She made her music video debut on December 15, 2015, with the song "Cheap Ass Weave", her rendition of English rapper Lady Leshurr's "Queen's Speech 4".[28][29] On March 7, 2016, Cardi B released her first full-length project, a mixtape titled Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1.[30][31] In November 2016, she was featured on the digital cover of Vibe magazines "Viva" issue.[32][33] On September 12, 2016, KSR Group released the compilation Underestimated: The Album, which is a collaboration between KSR Group artists Cardi B, Hood Celebrityy, SwiftOnDemand, Cashflow Harlem, and Josh X. It was previously released only to attendees of their U.S. tour. KSR Group's flagship artist Cardi B said "I wanted to make a song that would make girls dance, twerk and at the same time encourage them to go get that Shmoney," in regard to the compilation's single "What a Girl Likes".[34]

2017: Breakthrough

On January 20, 2017, Cardi B released her second mixtape, Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 2.[35][36] In February 2017, Cardi B partnered with MAC Cosmetics and Rio Uribe's Gypsy Sport for an event for New York Fashion Week.[37] In late February, it was reported that Cardi B signed her first major record label recording contract with Atlantic Records.[38][39] On February 25, 2017, Cardi B was the opening act for East Coast hip hop group The Lox's Filthy America... It's Beautiful Tour, alongside fellow New York City-based rappers Lil' Kim and Remy Ma.[40][41] In April 2017, she was featured in i-D's "A-Z of Music" video sponsored by Marc Jacobs.[42]

In May 2017, the nominees for the 2017 BET Awards were announced, revealing that Cardi B had been nominated for Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, tying with DJ Khaled and Kendrick Lamar for the most nominations with nine.[43][44] Although she failed to win any awards, losing to Chance the Rapper and Remy Ma, respectively, Cardi B performed at the BET Awards afterparty show.[45][46] On June 11 2017, during Hot 97's annual Summer Jam music festival, Remy Ma brought out Cardi B, along with The Lady of Rage, MC Lyte, Young M.A, Monie Love, Lil' Kim and Queen Latifah, to celebrate female rappers and perform Latifah's 1993 hit single "U.N.I.T.Y." about female empowerment.[47][48] In June 2017, it was revealed that Cardi B would be on the cover of The Faders Summer Music issue for July/August 2017.[49] She performed at MoMA PS1 on August 19 to a crowd of 4,000.[50]

On June 16, 2017, Atlantic Records released Cardi B's commercial debut single, "Bodak Yellow", via digital distribution.[51][52] The song climbed the charts for several months, and, on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated September 25, 2017, "Bodak Yellow" reached number one on the chart, making Cardi B the first female rapper to do so with a solo single since Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)" debuted atop the chart in 1998.[53] The song stayed atop the charts for three consecutive weeks, tying with American pop singer Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" as the longest running female at the number one spot in 2017.[54][55] Cardi B became the first person of Dominican descent to reach number one in the history of the Hot 100, since it was launched in 1958.[56] "Bodak Yellow" was eventually certified sextuple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). An editor of The New York Times called it "the rap anthem of the summer".[50] "Bodak Yellow" received nominations for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the 60th Grammy Awards.[57] The song won Single of the Year at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards.[58]

Several months later, in July 2018, the album's fourth single, "I Like It", which features vocals from Bad Bunny and J Balvin, reached number one on the Hot 100; this marked her second number one on the chart and made her the first female rapper to achieve multiple chart-toppers.[73] Her collaboration with Maroon 5, "Girls Like You," also reached number one the Hot 100 chart, extending her record among female rappers.[5] The song's music video reached 1 billion views on YouTube.[74] With "Girls Like You" following "I Like It" at the top of the Billboard Radio Songs chart, Cardi B became the first female rapper to ever replace herself at number one on that chart.[75] The fourth week atop the Hot 100 for the single made Cardi the female rapper with most cumulative weeks atop the chart, with eight weeks.[76] In October 2018, Invasion of Privacy was certified double platinum by the RIAA, while 12 from the 13 tracks were certified gold or higher.[77]

Artistry

Influences

In Billboard's "You Should Know" series, Cardi B said the first albums she ever purchased were by American entertainers Missy Elliott and Tweet, respectively.[15] She has credited Puerto Rican rapper Ivy Queen[97] and Jamaican dancehall artist Spice[98] as influences as well.

When asked about the initial direction for her music, Cardi B said in an interview, "When I first started rapping [...] I liked certain songs from Khia and Trina, and they [were] fighting songs. I haven't heard fighting songs for a very long time," crediting the two female rappers for her aggressive rap style. She continued saying "a lot of girls they can not afford red bottoms, a lot of girls they can not afford foreign cars [...] but I know that every girl has beef with a girl [...] I know that every bitch don't like some bitch, and it's like 'that's what I wanna rap about.'"[99][100]

Musical style

AllMusic editor David Jeffries called Cardi B "a raw and aggressive rapper in the style of Lil' Kim and Foxy Brown."[9]Stereogum called her voice "a full-bodied New Yawk nasal bleat, the sort of thing that you've heard if someone has ever told you that you stupid for taking too long at swiping your MetroCard." They continued to call her voice "an unabashedly loud and sexual fuck-you New York honk--that translates perfectly to rap."[101] In a 2017 Complex article about her, the editor wrote "unapologetic does not begin to describe the totally unfiltered and sheer Cardi B-ness of Cardi B's personality. She's a hood chick who's not afraid to be hood no matter the setting. Cardi B is Cardi B 24/7, 365, this is why she resonates with people, and that same energy comes out in her music."[102] Her first studio album Invasion of Privacy is primarily a hip hop record, which comprises elements of trap and Latin music.[103]

Other ventures

In February 2017, she partnered with M.A.C and Rio Uribe's Gypsy Sport for an event for New York Fashion Week.[37] During an April 2017 interview with HotNewHipHop, Cardi B spoke on being rejected by fashion designers.[104] Her April appearance in i-D's "A-Z of Music" video was sponsored by designer Marc Jacobs,[42] and she made the cover of The Faders July/August 2017 Summer Music issue.[93]

In August 2017, the Style section of The New York Times's Sunday edition did a half-page story on her. The writer reported on her preparations for her first public performance in New York City, at MoMA PS1, describing her appearance as she arrived to the interview in "leggings, an Atlanta Braves 'Los Bravos' logo jersey and white Adidas Yeezy sneakers". She also covered Cardi's affinity for Christian Louboutin heels (a running theme in her song "Bodak Yellow"), and the custom local designer, LaQuan Smith, whose red dress she wore to perform.[50]

Tom Ford's Cardi B-inspired lipstick, and named after her, was released in September 2018. It sold out within 24 hours.[105]

Public image

Cardi B's logo

Cardi B identifies as a feminist.[106][107]The New York Times wrote "on Love & Hip Hop: New York some viewers saw her as a hero of female empowerment, as she made pronouncements like

'Ever since I started using guys, I feel so much better about myself. I feel so damn powerful.'"[108]

When commenting on her rise to stardom The Fader wrote "one video in particular tipped her popularity over the edge. It was a 13-second clip that doubles as a neat précis of her ethos:

'People be asking me, 'What do you does? Are you a model? Are you, like, a comedian or something?' Nah, I ain't none of that. I'm a hoe. I'm a stripper hoe. I'm about this shmoney.'"[21][109]

Cardi B was a member of the Bloods, and has said she became a gang member at the age of 16.[16][17] However, she since has stated that she would not encourage joining a gang.[110]

Political statements

Cardi B has been called "unabashedly, directly political"[110] and often uses social media to advocate for causes she believes in, such as gun control.[111] During the 2016 presidential primaries, she warned her fans of Donald Trump's immigration policies and encouraged them to "vote for daddy Bernie [Sanders]."[112] At the 60th annual Grammy Awards in 2018, she appeared in a video along with Hillary Clinton to narrate a portion of Fire and Fury, Michael Wolff's insider's account of Donald Trump's administration, and stated ""Why am I even reading this s-t? I can't believe this. I can't believe -- this is how he really lives his life?"[113]

She has praised president Franklin D. Roosevelt as the "real 'Make America Great Again'" for advocating for the Social Security program and the New Deal project in general,[114] and has noted her admiration for his wife Eleanor Roosevelt's humanitarianism and advocacy for African-Americans.[115] She said of Franklin D. Roosevelt, "he helped us get over the Depression, all while he was in a wheelchair. Like, this man was suffering from polio at the time of his presidency, and yet all he was worried about was trying to make America great--make America great again for real. He's the real 'Make America Great Again,' because if it wasn't for him, old people wouldn't even get Social Security."[116] Senator Bernie Sanders has praised Cardi B for her "leading role" in calling attention to Social Security.[117]

Controversy

Cardi B caused controversy after throwing one of her shoes at, and attempting to fight Nicki Minaj at a party during New York Fashion Week 2018.[118] She later stated that Minaj liked comments about her as a mother, and made comments about her abilities to her care of her daughter.[119]

Personal life

Cardi B is Catholic;[120] she has mentioned her "strong relationship" with God in interviews, often saying that she directly communicates with God.[121][122][123][124]

As of early 2017, Cardi B began publicly dating fellow American rapper Offset, of the southern hip hop group Migos.[50] When speaking on her relationship with Offset, Cardi B told The Fader, "It's been a blessing, me meeting him and meeting his friends. I see how hard they work. And that motivated me to work even harder. And I see how good things are going for them and how popping it is to be number one. And I'm like, I want that. A lot of people just see they jewelry and they money, but I don't think a lot of people see how hard they work for that shit every single day."[3] Cardi B and Offset became engaged on October 27, after Offset proposed to Cardi B at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, during the Power 99 Powerhouse concert.[125] On April 7, 2018, Cardi B revealed that she was pregnant with Offset's child on Saturday Night Live.[126] On June 25, 2018, TMZ found a marriage license revealing Cardi B and Offset had secretly gotten married in September 2017 privately in their bedroom. Cardi B later went on to confirm this revelation in a social media post.[127] On July 10, 2018, Cardi B gave birth to her first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, a daughter.[128]

Cardi B's younger sister, Hennessy Carolina, also has a strong following on social media and has accompanied her to award shows, such as the 2017 Grammy Awards.[129]
