Cardi B Clarifies Recent Remarks About Rap: I Just Want A Balance

Update #1 (Nov. 2): Cardi B is clarifying her recent comments about the rap industry.

She tweeted yesterday (Monday, Nov. 1),

“I just want a balance sorry if I worded things wrong. I just love music that drop hard and turn the club up like dreams & nightmare & First day out by tee grizzly. A perfect balance of rap and turn up.”

Original Story: Cardi B didn’t hold back while dishing on the rap and club scenes!

Recently, Cardi B (real name Belcalis Almánzar) jumped on Instagram Live and spoke her mind on the current state of the rap game. Initially, the 29-year-old rapper proclaimed that she aims to make turn-up music for the club:

“I know what n***as is missing in the club–me! They missing me, they missing my music! Lemme tell you something, I am sick and tired of hearing the same motherf***ing s**t. I came from the strip club, and now that I’m in the game and everything and I be seeing all these motherf***ers on Twitter like ‘You need to have rap, you need to have bars, you need to have this.’ I want to make music to turn the f**k up! ‘Cause when I go to the club, that’s what n***as wanna hear. N***as ain’t hearing no [gibberish]–nobody wanna hear that s**t, we wanna turn up!… I wanna hear that turn up s**t. That’s what the f**k I’m gonna do. That’s what they missing–they missing Belcalis!”

As she continued, Cardi B critiqued certain aspects of modern rap music. Specifically, the mother of two said that many current rappers “wanna die” and have issues with consuming lean and marijuana:

“I feel like n***as nowadays making music with this type of beat that is mad depressing. All these rappers nowadays, all of them wanna die. They all wanna die–all of ’em! All these n***as need to stop doing lean and smoking weed. You know, this the thing about these rappers: they get money and they start buying too much motherf***in’ weed and too much lean and they make that slow s**t. I wanna turn up–tired of the same song every time I go to the motherf***ing club.”

Cardi B then stated:

“The club needs me! The strippers need me. The bartenders need me! The h*es need me. The motherf***ing get-money n***as need me. I wanna shake my a**, n***a! Am I lying?”
