Cardi B-grammys, offset

*Cardi B is being hit with a firestorm of hate for claiming she “paved” the way for other female rappers in the music industry.

The former stripper attempted to clarify the bold statement in a string of tweets on Wednesday writing:

“I didn’t say I pave the way for female rappers but I deff gave the hood and women hope.Nikkas wasn’t collabing with females rappers.Labels where signing female rappers and putting them in a shelf and not focusing on them.Not giving them proper attention .”

Cardi also noted that “It seem like it was impossible for it to be more then one female rapper.These male rappers where not even takin Money from female rappers for a feature cause it seem far fetch for another woman to make it.I see so many male artists collabing wit females now even,” she wrote, Complex reports

Cardi’s comments follow an episode of Tidal’s Rap Radar podcast, where the former “Love and Hip Hop” star noted how her career has opened the doors for others, Uproxx reports.

“I feel like, after me, I’ll say that it’s kinda easier for a lot of these female artists. Like before me, there was no female rapper that was signed to a label, well, you know the ones that had already been established. Nobody was signing them. And now, everybody’s just signing them if you could rap and you got a couple of followers because nobody want to miss the opportunity. Like, a lot of labels missed the opportunity with me because I went to a couple of motherfuckers and they said, ‘No, no, no, no.’”

T.I. agreed with Cardi saying, “I think she kind of kicked the doors down with being personable. Most women when they came out were extremely mysterious, you hardly heard them talk… You heard them in interviews but never really speaking in a discussion. You feel like you get more a sense of [Cardi’s] personality when she presented herself.”
