Cardi B had one of the best nights of her career on Sunday.
And the very next day she was not only showing off her battle scars, but also engaged in a war of words. The 26-year-old rap queen was quite active on Instagram on Monday as she post several videos including one of the bruising on her leg after her very physical performance of Money at the Grammys.
This came after a since-deleted clip of herself using very colorful language while ranting about the criticism she has received over her Best Rap Album win which made her the first solo female ever to win the prize.
Cardi obviously took issue with the criticisms as she later deleted her entire Instagram.
She began the self-taken video by saying:
You know what, it’s not my style for people to put other people down to uplift somebody else. That’s not my style and that’s not what I’m with and I don’t support that, however I’ve been taking a lot of s*** today.
‘I’m seeing a lot of bulls*** today and I saw a lot of s*** last night and I’m sick of this s***. I worked hard for my motherf***ing album.’
Cardi then referenced her two nominations for Bodak Yellow at last year’s Grammys where she came away empty-handed.
She said: ‘Everybody was like, Cardi got snubbed! Cardi got snubbed! Now this year’s a f***ing problem? My album went two times platinum my n***a and every chart that there was my album was always top ten, number one album as well!’
Thee Bronx-native then referenced being pregnant during the recording of Invasion Of Privacy as well as during the filming of the music videos as she said: ‘I f***ing worked my a** off, locked myself in the studio for three months my n***a and then went to sleep in my own bed sometimes for four days straight—pregnant!
Some songs couldn’t even get on the f***ing album because my nose was so f***ing stuffy from my pregnancy.
She concluded the expletive-filled rant: ‘While everybody was harassing me like, you not gonna do it, we know you pregnant, your career’s over—that s–t’s dwelling in my f–king mind while I’m workin!’
The previous night, Cardi impressed as she won in the male-dominated category Best Rap Album beating out Pusha-T, Travis Scott, Nipsey Hussle, and the late Mac Miller.
Cardi seemed overwhelmed as she received her honor as she joked: ‘Oh, the nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed!’
