Cardi B & Rihanna Land In 2018 100 Most Influential People List

Tiffany Haddish, Issa Rae, Ryan Coogler, Sterling K. Brown and Virgil Abloh also of the land in the list.

Cardi B and Rihanna, among those featured in the TIME 100, a list of the most influential of the pioneers, leaders, titans, artists, and icons of 2018.

The Cardi is listed in the Pioneers section. Their propaganda was written by Taraji P. Henson.

"When his mixtape came out, I thought, That's all. She found him! She is clear in her talent, and she is not trying to get in any lane," Henson wrote. "She recorded 'Bodak Yellow' because that is what she loved. Now she is the biggest thing in music. And even with all those eyeballs watching, she's still without her. Cardi B is here to stay, baby, and I'm happy to be a witness."

Rihanna — whose propaganda was written by Adele — lands in the Icons category.

"[Rihanna] has designed and conquered an entire lane of his own," Adele wrote. "The innovative and revolutionary world of Rihanna that no one else will ever be safe and copy. She makes her own rules and bent to our own".

Black panther star Chadwick Boseman also lands in the Icons category. Their propaganda, written by Sean "Diddy" Combs, it reads: "It feels like every time that Chadwick Boseman is on the screen, has found a new way to inspire. His portraits of American heroes have demonstrated how the blacks of the united states has always been able to transform the pain into something powerful."

Tiffany Haddish, Issa Rae, Ryan Coogler, Sterling K. Brown and Virgil Abloh also of the land in the list.

LL Cool J wrote the entry of Kehinde Wiley, the New York City-based portrait artist, known for his paintings of African-Americans.

"Kehinde Wiley is a classic, a formally trained artist who is transforming the way in which african americans are seen—goes against the grain of what the world is accustomed to," LL wrote. "Some consider irreverent; I see an iconoclast. Some of their songs from the hip hop culture, but he is not a hip-hop artist. To put it simply, he does dope sh-t".
