Cardi B’s career transition, in such a short timespan, has everyone’s head spinning.
An interesting fact about Cardi’s career is that her net worth increased a while before releasing her debut album “Invasion of Privacy,” on April 5, 2018.
Here’s the inspiring part! Cardi, born Belcalis Almanzar, will easily disclose where she’s come from and what she’s done to make it.
It hasn’t always been glory and multiple “Billboard Hot 100 smashes” for the rapper.
“I went from making tuna sandwiches to making the news,” says the rapper on the opening track from her album, “Get Up 10.”
Despite her raw and uncut delivery, Cardi teaches some valuable lessons, especially in the opening track of her album. Any women who’s been through the struggle of trying to make it can identify with her story.
The lyricists speaks of how she was degraded and shamed when she began as an exotic dancer, struggling to survive.
“Mama couldn’t give it to me, had to get it at Sue’s
Lord only knows how I got in those shoes
I was covered in dollars, now I’m drippin’ in jewels.”
The chorus of the song also goes,
“Knock me down 10 times bet I get up 10.”
The lyrics are extremely empowering and shows the level of her determination and a message that anything is possible.
Cardi began her short-term rap career with dropping a Vol. 1 mix-tape in 2016 followed by Vol. 2 and “Bodak Yellow” in 2017. Her work landed her the first woman to notch five top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
What really tipped her net worth up 2 million was after dropping, “Bodak Yellow.” Her net worth was $1.5 million on (February 9, 2017) and just seven months later (in September 2017), her worth increased to $4 million.
Watching the hip-hop star transform from a reality star on “Love & Hip-Hop” to a respected and successful artist, wife and mom in just three years has been inspirational.
