So I was sitting in the dentist’s office scrolling through Instagram, and low and behold I see a post from Cardi B. Her new video for “Money” dropped. I quickly go to my YouTube app and search for the video. After watching it, my first thought was, “Did you expect anything less?” And I mean that in the most respectful way.
I have so much respect for her simply because she does not try to be anything that she’s not. She’s not fake and she’s humble about where she came from, from being a stripper, dancing in the club, to still using her skills to make money today. She always talks about when she was a dancer and is still proud of it. She’s also apart of the Bloods gang. She appreciates everything that she has gone through and done because it has gotten her to where she is today.
I honestly imagined her video would be raunchy with class. She filmed it in a bank and a strip c!ub. She also showcases her skills on the stripper pole and dancing. That’s who she is and she’s humble about it. She’s not ashamed of where she came from, because if it wasn’t for that, I don’t think she’d be rapping today.
What gave me the biggest respect about her video is seeing her breastfeeding her child. Many people made the comment that that wasn’t actually her baby, however, I think those parts were shot when Kulture was first born. Regardless, from one breastfeeding mom to another, hats off to her.
She takes pride in being a mother and I honestly think that’s why she hasn’t taken Offset back. I also don’t blame her. She has a baby and a booming career. She doesn’t have time for the constant public humiliation. She is the epitome of a hardworking mother and I can only giver her props for it.
I know many people after seeing the video called her a ho. Do you think she’s bothered? She has capitalized on what many call “hoish” ways and behavior. Also, Cardi doesn’t give a fuck about what people think of her as long as she’s still getting them coins.
What did y’all think of her video?
