Cardi B makes historical past.
The Bronx-bred MC turned the primary solo feminine rapper to win Best Rap Album at Sunday’s Grammys. Her debut album Invasion of Privacy beat out the competitors, which included Pusha-T’s Daytona, Mac Miller’s Swimming, Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap, and Travis Scott’s Astroworld.
An emotional Cardi took the stage to just accept the glory alongside her husband Offset. “The nerves are so unhealthy. Maybe I want to start out smoking weed,” she joked.
The final time a feminine took house the award for Best Rap Album was in 1997, when Lauryn Hill received as a part of The Fugees for the group’s album The Score.
Cardi later took to Instagram to have a good time her win and share the glory with the late Mac Miller. “I’m sharing this Grammy with you, motherfu**er. Rest in peace,” she stated.

Cardi’s friends together with Lil’ Kim and Remy Ma took to Twitter to congratulate her.

But not everybody was comfortable. After her ex Mac Miller misplaced within the class, Ariana Grande tweeted “fuck,” “trash,” and “literal bullshit.” She rapidly deleted the feedback. However, she stated her tweets weren’t shading Cardi.
A fan tweeted, “Ariana isn’t shading Cardi it’s trigger Mac didn’t win,” to which Grande responded, “nothing to do w her. good for her. i promise. i’m sorry.”
Another Twitter consumer stated Cardi is “trash tho [for real].” Ariana replied: “she’s by no means and that’s not what i meant and u know that.”
Another fan expressed their dismay, writing, “Y’all invited Mac’s mother and father out and also you didn’t give him an award are y’all DUMB? @RecordingAcad.” Grande responded, writing, “this. that is what i meant. karen was gonna have a inexperienced swimsuit made.”
Miller’s household was invited to attend the Grammys on his behalf. His mom Karen Meyer attended the ceremony with Pete Davidson’s ex Cazzie David.
