Cardi B is not putting up with critics claiming she doesn't deserve her Best Rap Album GRAMMY!
In Travis Scott's new Netflix documentary, Look Mom I Can Fly, a scene is included that shows the "SICKO MODE" rapper looking visibly disappointed backstage at the awards show in February when Astroworld lost out to Invasion of Privacy, Cardi's multiplatinum-selling debut album.
Soon after the doc's release, fans of Scott took to Twitter to argue that he should have gotten the award. One wrote: "Bro no one cares you didn't even write the s**t, Astroworld should of won that Grammy." Another chimed in, "Travis got robbed of a Grammy Astroworld was easily AOTY."
By Wednesday, all of the talk prompted Cardi to share a series of tweets that not only defend her album and skills, but her long trek to the awards show.
"On my album I showed different sides of me," she wrote. "From my intro talking about my [past.] To living my best life inspiring people. Relationship songs while I was going thru my own relationship drama to shaking a** like Bodak & that A**. Every song went platinum!"
"I did it all while I was pregnant. Throwing up, drowsy, terrible colds and in a rush to finish it so I can start doing music videos before I started showing," the 26-year-old performer continued. "I spend 24 hours for months sleeping on a couch with my pregnant depressed a** in a studio."

I did it all while I was pregnant.Throwing up, drowsy,terrible colds and in a rush to finish it so I can start doing music videos before I started showing .I spend 24 hours for months sleeping on a couch with my pregnant depressed ass in a studio .
I wasn’t even thinking of winning or even the Grammies. All I can think about was ...everybody is disappointed in me,am I still going to have a career after this baby ? Is this album going to make me or break me ? I need to finish before I start showing .
All while I just separated from my long time manager.I had to get my husband to talk to my label cause I never had a relationship with them so we all came together to relocate me to Atlanta and Miami to finish my album before my stomach start showing.
When i kept seeing the certifications of the songs going gold or platinum I was so excited cause my husband was out here asking everybody for a feature on my behalf so the ones that said yes thank you from the bottom of my heart cause TRUST ME ALOT OF ARTIST SAID NO!
Later, she shared the elation she felt when she won her GRAMMY and what the recognition meant to her.
"So when I won a Grammy for it I didn't have no words to say but when I went home I started reminiscing on what I went thru during that period I was like YEA B*TCH YOU DESERVE THIS S**T!" she wrote. "[And] until this day my s**t still charting."

When I won Nipsey said on a comment to me WHEN IS YOUR TIME IS YOUR TIME! Now when I speak to upcoming artist or people who ask me for advice I tell them the same thing ! WHEN IS YOUR TIME IS YOUR TIME and when it comes don’t let nobody take that special moment away from you !
On Thursday, Cardi reminded fans and haters that she supported Scott when his album came out -- and still does -- and that her vitriol isn't for him.
"Ya some grown a** men talking about dragging cardi cause I won a award for a bomb a** album," she posted. "Mind you I myself promoted astroworld on my page when it came out and have a good relationship wit trav while ya some small d**k men talking bout draggginh a girl."
