Cardi B Calls Out Haters Who Discredit Her Success
Cardi B works hard for her success.
The 25-year-old "Bodak Yellow" rapper took to Twitter on Tuesday to call out haters who question her career.
"I will never let nobody discredit me, before I sign to Atlantic I put 2 mixtapes out and I was pushing FOREVA by myself," she wrote. "I went to Renaissance HS for musical theater. I been love music .After high school i Stopped wanna know why ?cause music DONT PAY YOUR F**KING BILLS A JOB DOES."
The hip-hop artist released two mixtapes, 2016’s Gangsta B***h, Vol. 1 and last year’s Gangsta B***h, Vol. 2. She's also collaborated with a slew of singers including Jennifer Lopez, Bruno Mars, whom she'll go on tour with later this year, and Nicki Minaj.
Earlier this week, the Bronx, New York, native not only announced that her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, would be released on April 6, but she also shared the cover art.
“My album cover!!!” she wrote alongside a picture of her sitting on a yellow chair wearing a checkered black-and-white outfit. “LADIES AND GENTS ! My album INVASION OF PRIVACY will be out next week April 6!!!!!!!❤.”
Fans started to get super excited online, though the pressure seems to have gotten to Cardi, who tweeted that she's "having bad anxiety."
"I’m seeing maaa fake track list already ??," she tweeted, followed by, "I’m also seeing predictions on sales and numbers .Please STOP! I’m already having bad anxiety. Let the sh*t drop and do what it do."
In an interview with CR Fashion Book, the "Bartier Cardi" singer opened up about the highs and lows of fame, admitting that she was "a little bit happier" two or three years ago when she had less money.
"I had less people who had opinions about my life," she expressed. "I felt like my life was mine. Now I feel like I don't even own my life. I feel like the world owns me."
