Cardi B Claps Back at Racist Haters to Her Birkin Collection: ‘Y’all Don’t Do This to White Celebrities’

*Cardi B has clapped back at racists saying Hermés Birkin bags “lost their value” because Black female rappers wear them.

Cardi’s response is to a social media post about how rappers make the pricy handbags less “exclusive.” Hermés Birkin bags typically range anywhere from $12,000 to $200,000.

“I’ve been seeing this tweet right. It had me and it had other female rappers on it. They were talking about if we could get Birkins from the Hermés store and they [were] also saying how we depreciate the value of a Hermés Birkin bag. I find that really interesting because, first thing first, I definitely could get a bag. Actually, I got four bags today from the Hermés store,” the 28-year-old hip-hop star said in a video shared on Instagram.

Check out Cardi’s profane and is NSFW video below.

So I had this convo with my team about this topic after seeing this viral tweet …what do you guys think ? Watch till the end

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The “WAP” rapper recently shared a glimpse of her Hermès handbag collection — 23 Birkin bags and counting… with rare and one-of-a-kind designs, like camouflage, glitter and a paisley-print pattern, per PEOPLE. Check out her post below. 

In the comments, Cardi B’s estranged husband Offset wrote, “I’m Responsible for 15 of them.”

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

Cardi explained in her IG post on Oct. 25 that folks should stop questioning how and why Black women can “get a bag from the Hermés store” because “y’all don’t do this to these white celebrities,” she said. 

“So why is it that y’all gotta be asking us? What the f—? It just makes you want to brag like, ‘Bitch do you know who the f— you’re talking to?’ But no, I’m not even going to take it there,” Cardi B added.

“Another thing is that they’re saying we’re depreciating the value,” she contonued. “Actually, we add value because when we mention brands in hip-hop, s— go up.”

She then referenced her hit single “Bodak Yellow,” which mentions designer Christian Louboutin and the song “I Like It Like That” which mentions  Balenciaga. 

“When ‘Bodak Yellow’ came out you could actually Google that their sales went up 1000+%,” said Cardi. And when it comes to the Balenciaga sales spike, Cardi added…”That s— went up too and that’s why they worked with me this year. Like hip-hop, we start trends,” she explaiined. “When y’all say that we devalue s—, no we actually add value.”

RADIOSCOPE RAW Podcast: Our Uncut 1989 Interview with Kool Moe Dee

Kool Moe Dee

*Episode 5 of the Radioscope Raw podcast features our Spring 1989 interview with rapper Kool Moe Dee.

The emcee and former member of the Treacherous Three was among hip hop’s most successful artists, with the singles “How You Like Me Now” and “Wild Wild West” having saturated urban radio two years prior.

In our interview, Kool Moe Dee (the Moe Dee short for his real name Mohandas Dewese) spoke to us about a wide range of topics, including an exchange about systemic racism and police brutality that could’ve happened yesterday, a very strong opinion on Robin Givens wanting half of ex-husband Mike Tyson’s fortune in their divorce (which inspired the album’s single “They Want Money”), and an extended dissection of his beef with LL Cool J.

“Our whole little conflict started because I felt his ego was out of hand,” he told us, adding that his frustration with LL stemmed from an opinion that the Queens rapper “never left you with any knowledge. His whole thing was like enticing the females, taking off his shirt, humping the couch and things like that, and he never went to another level. When you have that type of impact on kids, I think it’s extremely important to let them walk away with something, walk away with something inspiring.”

Sasha Obama (TikTok)

*The youngest daughter of former POTUS Barack Obama has the Internet shook with a batch of TikTok videos that suddenly surfaced, went viral, then disappeared from the platform just as quickly.

Sasha Obama went viral simply by lip-syncing the City Girls rap on Money Bagg Yo’s “Said Sumn.” If you know City Girls and their particular Miami-drenched, n-word infused, sexually explicit vernacular, and you remember Sasha as a seven-year-old holding her Daddy’s hand as he and the family took the stage at Chicago’s Grant Park on Nov. 4, 2008, like it was yesterday, then you understand why the Internet is thrown!

The now 19-year-old, who appeared in the Tik Tok clip with a friend, had JT’s verse down word for word.

Below, watch her City Girls rendition and all of her other now-deleted TikToks that briefly surfaced:
