Fresh off her MTV EMAs win in the category for Best Hip-Hop, Cardi B sat down for an interview wherein she opened up about her climb to the top of the ladder. Following the success of ‘WAP,’ Cardi has become one of the most powerful rappers on the scene and yet, she has no plans of resting on her laurels, atleast not anytime soon.
“I’m such an ambitious person. I feel like I lost so much. Now that I’m winning, it’s a very addicting feeling. I can go to sleep with the No. 1 record, but I’m going to sleep and thinking, ‘I need my other album to go No. 1,’” Cardi explained. She went on to confess that with the building pressures of the industry, she’s always been one to push herself and her team to put out something fresh every single time.
“I’m very hard on myself,” she admitted, “I’m hard on my entire team. We don’t focus on nobody else, we are just focusing on our last — the last music video, the last collaboration, we always compare it to our last best. We want to do better and better. When I do something positive and when I see my things selling out or my record doing pretty good, I get this crazy rush of happiness, but then it’s this rush of overwhelmingness that makes me want more [and] want more.” And so, in light of Cardi’s journey to the summit, we’re here to show you how she’s made such a prominent mark on the music landscape. It ultimately all boils down to a raging passion, practicality and perseverance. Take a look-
