American rapper and songwriter, Cardi B officially open up about female rappers that they are the most disrespected despite making “great music.”
She replied to one of his fans who poking out the frequent criticism female rappers receive despite their strong talent and impressive production values.
“I hate how Women rappers can perform & have whole ass choreography routines & still get criticized & picked apart while men rappers just walk around in one circle, jump up & down, giving the bare minimum with no criticism @ all,” @ReinaHoneey posted, herself replying to a user that shared footage of Cardi’s performance at the 2019 BET Awards.
“Female rappers have to bust their ass on performances, great visuals, hours on makeup, hours on hair, pressure by the public to look perfect, make great music and yet are the most disrespected,” Cardi replied. “Always they not good enough, what’s new? It’s boring, why her not me.
In a 2020 interview with Billboard, she noted the pressure female rappers face to continuously deliver new material. “If you don’t have a super crazy smash, it’s like oh, you flop, flop,” she said.
“The song could be like two-times platinum and it’s still flop, flop, flop. You’re always under pressure, and I feel like it’s not fair. I feel like there’s male artists who go two years without putting a fucking song out and they don’t go, ‘Oh, you’re irrelevant. It’s over for you.’ Me, I didn’t put out songs for nine months and it’s like, ‘Oh, she’s irrelevant. She’s over. She’s a flop. We told you that.’”
