*Lee Daniels is taking credit for the monstrous success of Cardi B, claiming that a selfie video they took after first meeting each other led to her big break on “Love & Hip Hop.”

The filmmaker told TMZ that Cardi has been his favorite rapper ever since she auditioned for a role on his Fox series, “Star,” nearly three years ago.

He was so taken by the Bronx emcee that he asked her to join him in a video selfie for the ‘Gram.

TMZ points to a previously unseen clip from its “Raq Rants” web show, where Daniels tells host Raquel that Cardi’s addition to “Love & Hip Hop” Season 6 came as the direct result of executive producer Mona Scott-Young seeing their IG video.

Asked if Cardi has ever thanked him for the assist, Daniels pretty much said she hasn’t: “I don’t know. I’ve seen her a little bit. She’s fantastic.”
