From the strip clubs of New York, to becoming a social media diva, a reality star on Love and Hip New York and now one of the hardest, hit making female rappers, Cardi B signed her first major label deal with Atlantic Records earlier this year.
Her single, “Bodak Yellow” reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with the New York Times calling it “the rap anthem of the summer”. When I say Cardi wasn’t playing, she wasn’t playing. Too many people were sleeping on her but she wasn’t sleeping on herself and that’s why she is where she is today. She is what I call an inspiration to a lot of young girls, don’t let your circumstances or your surroundings prevent you from dreaming and working hard to attain those dreams.
As of today, “Bodak Yellow,” Cardi’s video for the song which is pretty interesting and has over 170,440,294 views according to several media outlets. That’s a whole lotta people watching her video, she doing the damn thing and I can’t be mad at her.
“Bodak Yellow” is a song that young girls who are coming of age can relate too, the young girls today have their Cardi B like I had my Janet Jackson. I can definitely relate to her elevation and why she’s so popular, Cardi is down to earth, she never comes at you side ways and our generation today needs someone like a Cardi B, regular people can be successful too.
Cardi said, “While I was recording it, every b-tch I don’t like came into my head.” And that is literally the effect this song has on people. I also cannot afford Louboutins, but you bet I’ll be screaming, “THESE EXPENSIVE, THESE IS RED BOTTOMS, THESE IS BLOODY SHOES” like I can. It’s just one of those songs that gets it. And everyone loves it.
Yes and Miss Jackson if your nasty loves her some Cardi B. This is what Cardi posted on her Instagram:
“I really can’t even believe this .Its soo surreal .Like ommmmmmmgggg son this the type of shit you dream about .Thank you Janet Jackson for showing Bodak Yellow some love. Im so happy.”
An alleged reliable source who works for Billboard said, “it was particularly crazy how quickly Cardi B, someone who was virtually unknown in the world of mainstream music, climbed the charts because it happened “without a meme” and “without a dance.”
Cardi B made it to the top because of who she is and not who she was trying to be. I am definitely team Cardi, watching her grow and make them money moves lets me know that anything is possible when you work hard to get it. So proud of her, yes she has haters, but who doesn’t!!
“Thank you everybody that had helped me climb the charts .Everybody have been a big help to me !!!This is crazy and new to me !!! it’s a different feeling.”
Toni Braxton & Birdman Married
Allegedly congrats are in order, several reliable sources have reported that Toni Braxton recently got married!! What a match made heaven
According to several reliable sources, its true that Toni Braxton and Birdman have secretly got married and now the bat is out of the bag. The weirdest looking couple and I still don’t see their connection when Birdman was allegedly sleeping with other women.
“They don’t want anyone to know yet. They’re trying to keep it secret, just like their relationship. They tried for as long as they could to deny that they were actually together.”
Word on the street, Toni and Birdman has been taking advantage I guess but for about 2 months now to make up for the secret ceremony, the two will have a big reception for their family and friends to celebrate.
When Birdman and Keyshia Cole were dating, that just shows Birdman she is moving with the man in charge, the bus driver. We have heard all of Birdman’s dirty dog past that lead to Keyshia Cole acting a fool and tapping that a$$.
Congrats to the happy couple!!
Are you guys ready for a B2K Reunion? Former B2K group member Fizz who is currently on the hit reality show Love and Hip Hollywood is looking to get his group back together. If New Edition can make come back and the group Xscape, why shouldn’t B2K reunite and create some grown and sexy music?
When B2K hit the music industry, the group exploded, so many young girls were in love with the group, they made some groundbreaking music, creative dance moves they and they were an instant hit. The group consisted of four black teens who were easy on the eyes and they could actually really sing and dance. The group was successful from from 1998 to 2004, music video’s were a must in the 90’s and that only helped elevate their careers which in turn, made them stars.
There were so rumors about B2K’s manager Chris Stokes, he was accused of allegedly touching Raz-B when he was a child and allegedly forced him to shower with the other members of the group. At the time when these allegations hit, of course Chris Stokes denied the claim but Raz-B and Chris Stokes could have been creeping on the low while he was his manager. Raz-B may have been in his feelings where maybe him and Chris could of have had a consensual relationship behind the groups back. I don”t know but a video surfaced online where in that particular video, they alleged that Marques Houston was also allegedly molested by Chris Stokes.
Omarion issued a statement years ago about Raz-B who accused their manager Chris Stokes of molesting him but I guess Omarion is in denial or Raz-B was lying. Chris Stokes was super manager and Raz-B so far, was the only one accusing their manager. However, Omarion decided to defend his manager against the false allegations that supposedly occurred years ago. Omariom says Chris Stokes was a father figure to him and the group, and that his manager never molested any of them.
After the B2K breakup, the former group claimed Chris Stokes didn’t handle their money right, another allegation Omarion has denied. But why is Omarion so quick to jump of and defend his former manager? Were they creeping on the low low too?
However that is in the past and Fizz wants to really bring the group back together but he is having a few issues with all of them getting on board. When Fizz tried contacting Omarion about B2K reuniting, he never responded to any text messages or tweets so he decided on his own to recruit Ray J as a replacement member. Ray J isn’t that great of a singer, but he’s had some hits but I can’t see Ray J being in a group when he believes he’s hot sh$t and doesn’t need a group and Omarion is successful as a solo artist but I would love to see the original group back together and create a grown and sexy album.
Omarion just wants to be the only star, he thinks the other group members need him and not the other way around. The fans have spoken and they are breaking social media, they want to see this group back together. I know they had issues in the past, they are now much older, married, kids and girlfriends, they can create a grown and sexy album and I guarantee this group would be back on top.
