Cardi B Admits She Never Felt Welcomed In The Industry: 'My Feelings Got Hurt A Lot'

The Grammy Award winner also insisted there's room for all kinds of female rappers.

Cardi B has been laying relatively low over the past nine months. The coronavirus pandemic and inability to tour have made an artist’s visibility that much more scarce. But that changed on Friday (August 7) when Cardi made her triumphant return with “WAP” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, her first new single and video since May 2019.

“When I first started doing music and everything, my feelings got hurt like a lot of times,” she explained. “I felt people just kept denying me in my face ’cause my manager at the time, they said you have to be more friendly. You got to go out more. And even when I was being friendly to other artists — and I’m not talking about female artists, just being more mix-y in the industry — I just felt I’m shaking hands with everybody, but nobody want to do a fucking feature with me.

“I was like, ‘What the hell?’ And then my husband, he was the one that gave me a feature. And, I still didn’t blow up as crazy as I thought I was going to blow up. But like I said, once you get up there, oh people gonna to be on it and you can’t take it personal.”
