Cardi B Accused of Not Writing ‘Bodak Yellow’ – People Are Trying To Discredit Me
Cardi B received a bit of backlash after news hit that she received Grammy nominations. The 25-year-old rapper was nominated for both best rap performance and best rap song for her Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit, “Bodak Yellow.”
However, some pointed out that in the credits for best rap song — an award that honors songwriters — Cardi’s real name, Belcalis Almanzar, was not listed.
And some claimed that the former Love & Hip Hop: NY cast member used a ghostwriter for the song, and others noted that Kodak Black (real name: Dieuson Octave) is listed as a songwriter on the credits. Cardi responded to the backlash and also circled her name listed in the credits for both nominations. She wrote,
Well look at that … So many people try to discredit me … but songwriters? Yeaa [sic] that’s right CARDIB!!!!

Cardi has since deleted the post.
