Cardi B has come a bit of a way since the days when nobody really know who she was. Once a former stripper, Cardi, is now a major rapper signed to Atlantic Records. The New York based rapper appears in the latest issue of Fader Magazine, where, she revealed that she recently signed to Atlantic Records.
On that now famous Atlantic Records deal:
“I had a lot of deals on the table but like they gave me the best offer, the one that I don’t have to owe them much, and they just gave me a lot of money so I took it.
They gave the right number, so I chose them. It was significantly more than other [deals]. I heard a lot of good things and they was really eager to work with me so I was just like, if they want to give this money then it’s because they’re really gonna work hard for me.”
On her rise to wealth and fame:
I do feel kind of guilty sometimes ’cause, like, I could buy myself a $5,000 dress or a $3,000 dress and I’m buying these things but I’m knowing that my cousin need money for the rent. And then I gotta tell myself, ‘Stop feeling guilty. You worked for this.’ When I was a stripper, I used to strip like six nights a week. I used to bust my ass. And I didn’t stop [working]. Until today I work just as hard as I did before.”
Among other things.
