Cardi B is a real name and she is an American rapper, producer, reality television star, activist, and businesswoman. Cardi B has a net worth of forty million dollars as of the time of this writing. Cardi rose to prominence after becoming a viral sensation on platforms such as Vine and Instagram.
She was a regular cast member on the VH1 reality show “Love & Hip: New York” from 2015 through 2017; the show aired during those years. The success of Cardi B’s single “Bodak Yellow” in 2017 was the genuine catapult that propelled her career into the upper echelons of the music industry.
That single reached diamond status. She is the only female rapper who has ever had a song receive a diamond certification from the RIAA. Cardi B’s 2018 studio album “Invasion of Privacy” shattered a number of streaming records, was certified three times platinum, and would go on to win the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album later that year.
Cardi B is a social media megastar outside of the realm of music. She has more than 35 million monthly Spotify listeners, more than 10 million TikTok admirers, and more than 100 million followers on Instagram. She also has more than 6 billion streams on YouTube.
Cardi B’s real name is Belcalis Almanzar, and she was born in the South Bronx, New York, on October 11th, 1992. Her mother is from Trinidad, while her father is from the Dominican Republic.
She admitted in the past that she had been involved in criminal activity since the age of 16, and she was a member of the Bloods street gang when she was a teenager.
She got her start in the adult entertainment industry at the age of 19, after completing her high school education at the Renaissance High School for Musical Theater & Technology and having a brief stint of employment at an Amish grocery store.
Cardi said that she entered the stripping industry as a means of evading poverty and domestic violence when she was involved in an abusive relationship. In addition to that, the money that she was making allowed her to resume her studies.
Cardi B went public with her relationship with rapper Offset, who is a member of the hip-hop group Migos, at the beginning of 2017.
After Offset proposed to Cardi during the Power 99 Powerhouse concert in October of that same year, the couple announced their engagement to the public in October of that same year.
However, TMZ revealed in 2018 that their marriage license indicates that the couple married covertly in September of 2017, which was a year earlier than previously thought. This information was subsequently verified by Cardi B on social media. In July of 2018, she gave birth to the couple’s daughter.
Cardi B was 23 years old when she launched her career as a musician, which was in late 2015. She published her first mixtape in 2016, and in November of that same year, she was featured on the front cover of the “Diva” issue of Vibe Magazine.
In 2017, she issued her second mixtape, and just one month later, she secured a recording contract with Atlantic Records. Since several of Cardi’s videos have gained millions of views on Instagram over the past year, she has emerged as a prominent figure on social media, and she has also had significant success in the music industry.
Since the beginning of her career more than three years ago, Cardi B has collaborated with a wide variety of musicians, including Selena Gomez, Nicki Minaj, G-Eazy, and Bruno Mars, among many others.
