(AllHipHop News) Cardi B continues to prove why she’s the superstar she is.
The rap star recently took the time to shout out some other big names in hip-hop — specifically the females.
She said in a seflie video, “Let me tell you about some rappers that be really f##king dope, that be rapping their asses off. I don’t feel like they get the recognition they deserve.”
The “Bodak Yellow” then listed Tierra Whack, Rapsody, Kamaiyah, and CHIKA, whose name she wasn’t sure how to pronounce.
North Carolina MC Rapsody took to her own social media to thank Cardi B in length for using her platform to support other female rappers.
In the caption, she wrote, “It takes a village. Reals ones always rise. Stay your authentic self always, @iamcardib !! People ask me about the state of Hip Hop and women in it all the time....my answer is always it’s BEAUTIFUL! There are sooooo many dope ladies rockin! To the sisterhood....keep doing YOU....there’s room for us all! And space to show love. It doesn’t dim your light to see the light in others. To our folk....know our power....the culture moves thru us. Mad love always!! - Rap 🔻”
Kamaiyah also reposted Cardi B’s video and thanks her for the recognition, which came in the wake of statements Jermaine Dupri made comparing most female rappers to strippers.
