(AllHipHop News) Cardi B led the winners at the Bet Awards on Sunday night, taking home two gongs including the prestigious prize for Album of the Year.
The 26-year-old rapper collected the honor for her record Invasion of Privacy from Anderson Paak, and couldn’t contain her excitement as she thanked the audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
“Thank you so much everybody,” Cardi said. “As a female artist I always feel like, damn, sometimes I feel like I’m doing too much, and sometimes I feel like I’m not doing too much. You know what I’m saying? It’s like you’re never motherf##king perfect to these people, but, the numbers don’t lie. Three times platinum and I want to thank everybody who participated on the album… I’m glad I made an album that your sister, your mother, your grandmother like it.”
Cardi, who went on to take home the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist prize, was also in charge of opening the awards, and pulled out all the stops with an energetic performance of her tracks "Press" and "Clout."
Wearing a barely-there green outfit, the mother-of-one also delighted her husband, Migos star Offset, with a sexy lap dance on stage as she performed her latest single.
Despite winning two prizes at the awards, Cardi was actually nominated for seven, but lost out on categories such as Collaboration of the Year, which went to Travis Scott and Drake for "Sicko Mode," and Video of the Year, which was won by Childish Gambino for "This Is America."
