Cardi B creates history at last night’s Grammy Awards.
The “Money” rapper became the first solo female rapper to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album. Cardi B was speechless when her name was announced as the winner for the most covetous Grammy in the rap category. She took home the prize for her debut album Invasion Of Privacy while beating out competitions from Nipsey Hussle (Victory Lap), Travis Scott (Astroworld), and Pusha T (Daytona).
Cardi B cracks a few jokes to break the ice as she was visibly shaking while accepting her award. “The nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed,” she told the crowd while her husband Offset supported her on stage. She also sends a big shout-out to the late Mac Miller.
Lauryn Hill was the last female rapper to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album in 1997 when she won the award as part of The Fugees for their classic album The Score.
After winning her Grammy, Cardi B celebrated with her crew late last night. She posted a video on her Instagram where she thanked her fans and her team while turning up with Offset and her sister Hennessy Caroline. Her rap peers including Lil Kim and Remy Ma all congratulate her on her Grammy win.
