The 26-year-old rapper reportedly quit her account shortly after posting, and subsequently deleting, an expletive-filled video rant in which she fired back at her haters and passionately explained how much work went into her Grammy-winning album “Invasion of Privacy.”
The video was captured by fan account Music News Facts prior to its deletion and finds Cardi yelling into the camera about the comments she'd seen posted since her big win.
“I’ve been taking a lot of s--- today. I’m seeing a lot of bulls--- today and I saw a lot of s--- last night, and I’m sick of this s---. I work hard for my motherf---ing album,” she shouts into the camera.
The star reflected on last year’s award show, where she didn’t win for “Bodak Yellow” and how fans’ reactions are much different now that she won.
“I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow’ and everybody was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed,'” the rapper says. “Now this year’s a f---ing problem?! My album went two-time platinum, my n-----, and every chart that there was, my album was always Top 10. Number one album, as well.”
The star also noted that no one knows how much work and sleepless nights went into the making of “Invasion of Privacy” and reminded them that she was pregnant with daughter Kulture Kiari at the time.
“I locked myself in the studio for three months, my n-----. Didn’t went to sleep in my bed sometimes for four days straight — pregnant!” she explained, noting that the pregnancy affected her voice at times. “While everybody was harassing me like, ‘You’re not gonna do it, we know you pregnant, your career’s over…'”
As People reports, Cardi B posted a cleaner version of her complaint on Instagram shortly before deleting her account from the app altogether. In it, she shared a congratulatory post from Chance the Rapper, who appeared on the Grammy-winning album, along with a lengthy caption.
“Slept in the studio on leather sofas for 3 months straight, migraines, in Atlanta in Miami away from my family. I have 4 songs that couldn’t make the album cause my nose was so stuffy bro I was huffy puffy,” she reportedly wrote.
