This isn’t the first time that Cardi has spoken out about this issue. NME reports that in February, she spoke on the “crazy expectations” female rappers are expected to meet. She also said in an interview with Mariah Carey, “It’s not like it’s a competition, but people are always comparing and comparing and comparing. It’s almost like they want to see you fail.”
