The American pop artist Cardi B won a Grammy award for a reason. She turns 28 on October eleventh, and is known to be one of the leanest, meanest, most trending rap artist out there. The song WAP from this year has been hitting billboards hard, making it to top hot 100 and is dominating that number three spot. Among the greats such as BTS and Travis Scott and competing with songs like Dynamite and Franchise, Cardi B is clearly no joke, and an icon of the current age. A minority in voice, Cardi B has spoken out in support for Black Lives Matter, and has impressively attacked Donald Trump’s administration. Her bold statements, lyrics, and everything she does stands out to both fans and onlookers worldwide to strike them with inspiration.
