I get it. “Bodak Yellow” is a bop. It goes. But let’s be honest, can Cardi B really rap? Is she better than Nicki?
True story, I’m trying to get on radio as an on-air personality. So I go to this “club” in Baltimore where they broadcast live on 92Q every Saturday night. First, I couldn’t believe that this hole in the wall was where Baltimore’s station actually broadcasts live from. Like, if I was out of town and I wanted to go to a popping club that the radio station is broadcasting from, this spot would definitely disappoint. Anywho, I’m there to meet the DJs and the on-air personalities from 92Q.
They play, “Bodak Yellow” and it hit me. Cardi’s music is for girls who, if they had the body would strip their way out of the hood. But they drink too much yak and eat way too many chicken boxes so they live through Cardi.
She’s the hoodbooger savior. I don’t knock anyone’s hustle but Cardi’s recent Twitter statements towards Black women have me side-eyeing her.
It seems that whenever a woman of color comes for Cardi, her first response is to attack their features and call them a roach. Cardi has this weird obsession with calling people roaches that she claims comes from her Bronx upbringing.
But it seems that her name calling is always geared towards Black women and especially a Black woman of darker complexion. It doesn’t get any more colorist/ anti-Black than calling a dark skinned person a ‘brunt roach.’ And it doesn’t get any more anti-Black than calling Black people monkeys either. Both insults Cardi has only directed at Black people and Black women.
Her tweets have then been deleted but Twitter user, Jumah @WokeMutant has an entire thread of Cardi’s less than savory tweets. And don’t come for me, because you’re going to have to try harder than that ‘you must be insecure’ gas lighting tactic that people love to throw at Black women.
I’m just saying, are you calling women of color roaches in your speech? Is Cardi B cancelled or nah? Sound off below!
