Whether you’re Oprah Winfrey, a fan from around the way, or the biggest hater on the Internet, you know Cardi B.’s name. And regardless of what you know, the Bronx-bred beauty is winning. Period.

In the past four years, Cardi has gone from being just another face on Love and Hip-Hop to rap’s most revered female artist in years — just take a look at her track record. After being formally introduced to the public via her 2017 single, “Bodak Yellow,” she hasn’t left the spotlight. The self-proclaimed Trap Selena has broken world records (including ones held by Beyonce), racked up a seven-figure bank account, tied the knot to one of today’s biggest names in hip-hop, and proven that you can be yourself in a cutthroat business and still coming out winning. 

As she continues to define the term “from nothing to something,” Cardi B. is getting ready to headline this year’s Summer Jam music festival, and expected to really give the public something to talk about. But before you stampede the floors of Met Life Stadium to get a glimpse of the rap queen, we’re hear to let you know why the Bardi Gang leader is the rapper everyone loves to hate. 

1. Her net worth skyrocketed in a two-year period. And when you have money, you demand power and respect.


2. She became the first woman to win a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.

4. She’s candidly vocal about social and political issues, and calls out Trump any chance she gets.


5. She shows “nothing to something” is possible.


6. Cardi broke two Beyonce’s Guiness World Records — one for Most Streaming Songs Charting at the Same Time and one for Most Simultaneous Billboard US Hot 100 Entries by a Female.
