Who Is Cardi B?

Cardi B first got the world's attention through social media with her tough and frank attitude about life as a stripper. Starting in 2015 she appeared on VH1's reality show Love & Hip Hop: New York and left the show in 2017 to pursue music full time. That same year she released her No. 1 single "Bodak Yellow" through Atlantic Records, and in 2019 she won a Grammy for her debut album, Invasion of Privacy.

She secretly got married to Migos group member Offset in September 2017.

Cardi B revealed her name comes from the alcoholic beverage Bacardi. "My sister's name, her name is Hennessy, so everybody used to be like Bacardi to me... then I shortened it to Cardi B, and the 'B' stands for whatever... depending on the day," she said.

Early Life and Parents

Cardi B, real name Belcalis Almanzar, was born on October 11, 1992, in The Bronx, New York. In addition, she spent a lot of time with her grandmother in nearby Washington Heights. Her father is Dominican, and her mother is Trinidadian, so she has a mixed Caribbean ancestry.

She attended Renaissance High School for Musical Theater & Technology as a teen and was a member of the Bloods gang. She chose to become a stripper in order to escape an abusive relationship and poverty, and she has made no secret of her satisfaction with this decision.

"It truly protected me from many dangers. "I went back to school when I started stripping," the woman said.

Cardi B forged her own path to success, despite dropping out of school: first on social media (via Vine and Instagram), then as a reality star (Love & Hip Hop: New York), and finally as a powerful figure in the music industry.

In a viral Instagram Live video from March 2019, Cardi B admitted to using drugs and robbing men while working as a stripper. A few days later, she addressed the situation on social media, saying, "I did what I had to do to survive," but she did not apologize.

Cardi B: Career

A million-like photo: Cardi B, the female singer who once shocked the audience by throwing a mic at the audience's head, attracted attention when posting a photo as the cover for her new album.

After a number of her Vine and Instagram videos and posts gained popularity, she became well-known online.

She was a regular cast member of the VH1 reality television series Love & Hip Hop (2010) from 2015 to 2017, which followed her as she pursued her dreams of becoming a musician. Before joining Atlantic Records in the early months of 2017, she put out two mixtapes, Gangsta Bitch Music, Vol. 1 & Vol. 2. Invasion of Privacy (2018), her debut studio album, broke multiple streaming records, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, was certified triple platinum by the RIAA, and was named the best female rap album of the 2010s by Billboard.

It was widely praised and went on to win the Grammy for Best Rap Album, making Cardi the first female rap artist to win the category as a solo performer and the first to be nominated for Album of the Year in 15 years. It gave rise to two number-one hits on the Billboard Hot 100: I Like It, which made her the first female rapper to have multiple number-one hits on the chart, and Bodak Yellow, which made her the second female rapper to top the chart with a solo output (after Lauryn Hill in 1998).

She became the only female rapper to reach the top of the Hot 100 three times with her Maroon 5 collaboration, Girls Like You. WAP, the lead single from her second album, became her fourth Hot 100 number-one single, expanding her record as the most successful female rapper. It also made her the only female rapper to have chart-topping singles in two decades (the 2010s and 2020s).

Cardi B, who has garnered extensive media coverage for her candid lyrics and aggressive flow, is regarded by Forbes as one of the most influential female rappers of all time. According to the RIAA's Top Artists (Digital Singles) ranking, she is the most certified female rapper of all time.

She also has the highest certified song by a female rap artist and ranks among the top ten highest-certified female artists. The only other female rapper on Spotify with multiple billion-streamers is her. A Grammy Award, eight Billboard Music Awards, five Guinness World Records, four American Music Awards, eleven BET Hip Hop Awards, and two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year awards are just a few of her accomplishments. She was listed as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time in 2018.

Cardi B and Offset's Kids

Despite their breakup, Cardi B and Offset are still embracing parenthood and living as a contemporary family.

The former couple has a 5-year-old daughter named Culture Kiari Cephus and a 2-year-old son named Wave Set Cephus. Offset's sons, Jordan Cephus, 14, and Kody Cephus, 9, as well as his daughter, Kalea Marie Cephus, 9, are also his biological children from prior partnerships.

During an Instagram Live in December 2023, Cardi B revealed that she and Offset had split up. She began, "I've been single for a minute now," and then she said that she hadn't shared the news because she was "afraid."

The Migos rapper previously told Essence in April 2022 how appreciative he was of his blended family. "It's a blessing to be able to have them all together, and to have a wife who's open and treats them as if they're her kids," he said. "It could be an issue, but I don't have to go through that, and that's beautiful."

Cardi accepted her role as a stepmother as well. "I first met his children after we were married. They genuinely do love me, which is what I've always wanted. That's what they tell me. I hope our relationship continues to be wonderful because I sense it," she remarked.

Long before she dropped her bankable 2018 single "Money," Cardi B was all about her money.

The 31-year-old Bronx native recently spoke with Complex's Speedy Morman, who inquired about Cardi's purported $80 million net worth, which she feels is far in the past now that she's in a higher tax bracket.

Cardi B also made sure to clarify that the checks aren't just filling her wallet—rather, they're helping her many friends and family members who are struggling financially.
