If you recall Fiddy’s song “How to Rob,” released back in the 90’s when he was still an unknown, he took aim at a long list of rappers and singers, including Diddy, Jay-Z, Big Pun, Timbaland, Missy Elliot, Whitney Houston and more. The diss track is widely considered an attention grab by 50; a way to get publicity for his debut album by starting up some rap beefs.
It worked for him, and maybe Hernandez is hoping it’ll work for her, too. It was only a matter of time before someone tried to ride Cardi B’s coattails to fame.
Cardi B hasn’t acknowledge the song or Hernandez by name, but it’s safe to assume these tweets were her official response.
LMMMMMMAAAAAAAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO???????????I’m wild dead son
Big time rapper Cardi B might have carved her career from a different path, but there’s no doubt she’s done a lot of things right to get where she is today. The Dominican-Trinidadian rapper managed to transform her career multiple times within the span of just a few years. Having started as a stripper she turned her life around as a reality tv star and then came up on the up as a multi-platinum rapper. Now, the stripper-turned-reality-star-turned-rapper is turning a new leaf and becoming an actress ( if you didn’t already know her film debut will be alongside J.Lo in the film “Hustlers.) So like we said, she’s done a lot of things right and made some clearly lucrative decisions.
However, we’ve gotta say Cardi’s latest choice is giving us some pause.
It looks like Cardi has a new tattoo and the content and location of her newest ink has people talking.

On July 22nd, Cardi’s hubby, Offset, shared a Face-Time snapshot of a call between him and his wife on Instagram. In it, we can see Cardi contoured to show off her newest tattoo. In elaborate script on the back of her thigh, the tattoo reads “Offset.” This tat matches Offset’s own “Cardi B” tattoo that he sports on the back of his neck.
While getting a tattoo isn’t a big deal, the fact that she’s decided to ink her husband’s name on her has us a tad concerned. It’s no secret that Offset and Cardi have been on-again, off-again in the past. As recently as five months ago, the Grammy-winning rapper addressed rumors that Offset was once again stepping out. The pair has appeared publicly many times since their reconciliation and have appeared to be totally in love but, as we know, passions can burn out quickly.
Many see tattooing a lover’s name on oneself as a set up for the relationship to soon end.

It’s tattoo superstition that once you get your love’s name inked on you, the relationship is about to be over. Unlike most superstitions, however; this one has a little bit of truth to back it up.
Take for example the singer and actress Adrienne Bailon.
She famously dated a certain Kardashian brother back in 2007. During their time together, the Latina inked the famous last name on her butt before the relationship ended because of infidelity.
“I made a very bad decision!” Bailon shared. The Latina eventually got the tattoo removed in 2013 in a very painful procedure “You can smell your flesh burning,” she graphically explained.
Bailon is far from alone in her former tattoo regrets.
Actress Eva Longoria also knows the pain of regrettable tattoos.
Back when she was married to NBA star, Tony Parker, the star got a set of three tattoos honoring their marriage. The first was Parker’s jersey number, the second was the date of their wedding and the third was Parker’s initials. When the marriage ended in 2010, Longoria also endured the painful procedure of getting all three tattoos removed.
Christina Aguilera also made the mistake of getting a tattoo in honor of now ex-husband, Jordan Bratman.
The Latina diva got her then-husband’s initials tattooed onto her elbow in the Hebrew alphabet. Whether it was a sign or just a mishap, the tattoo DOESN’T actually say “JB.” It was actually mistranslated and says the number “12” instead. This could have been a lot more embarrassing had the couple stayed together but we’re sure that Aguilera still has to regret the tattoo a little bit.
It isn’t just people who get their loved one’s names tattooed on themselves who regret it.
A spur of the moment decision resulted in Demi Lovato getting her friend’s lips tattooed on her forearm.
The singer soon grew annoyed with the piece, however; and re-dubbed it the “vagina tattoo.” In 2012, the Latina had it covered up with new art in the form of a white rose. Lovato likes the new tat better but still definitely regrets that first one.
Jessica Alba also recently admitted that she had a couple of tattoos that she wishes she never committed to ink.
“I do have a few tattoos, and I regret one of them…maybe two. I got it when I was like 17 and I’m so irritated that I got it. I got it lasered many times and it’s not coming out.”
She’s referring to a back and back-of-neck tattoo that she got as a young woman. The neck tattoo is a sprig of flowers and the back ink is a pair of angel wings. The neck tat has been lasered a few times but some tattoos take longer than others to remove.
The point we’re trying to make is that sometimes you love something and think it makes sense to immortalize it on your skin. Yet, the truth is that a tattoo isn’t all that permanent anymore so maybe you should find a less painful way to commit to your love. Either way, a good tattoo is one that you don’t end up regretting later.
Cardi B isn’t known for keeping quiet. She’s not afraid to speak her mind and share her views. Even if it means pissing off a whole lot of people. It’s one of the things that people love most about her.
Though it’s also one of the things that seems to be sending a lot of people into an angry rage. Maybe because as a hugely popular entertainer, Cardi B has the power to shift some people’s votes…?
Since the “Press” singer came out and publicly supported Bernie Sanders for president, many people have been coming for the rapper saying she needs to keep quiet. Well you know Cardi, that just incensed her to speak out even more.
Cardi B shared a video on her Twitter clapping back at the hate she’s got for speaking her mind when it comes to politics.
In the video Cardi B says that a lot of “Republicans are Conservatives have been dragging her” but tat she hasn’t been saying anything terrible about “these people and their President.”
She also shared how her father is the one who has encouraged her to speak her mind and To use her platform before going full Cardi and saying that since she pays so much in taxes she’ll 100% use her voice just how she wants to.
But Cardi has never been a stranger to sharing her political views.
Cardi, no stranger to a viral moment online, hasn’t shied away from sounding off on politics, whether that means questioning how her tax money is being spent, discussing the repercussions of President Donald Trump’s government shutdown or showing support for Rep. Ilhan Omar in the face of racist attacks.
True Cardi fans (or Bardi gang as they refer to themselves), however, know that Cardi’s interest in politics has been longtime and spurred by a deep love of history, something that was confirmed by her high school history teacher, who noted on social media that not only did Cardi take her AP Government class, but that she was proud of her for using her platform to speak about issues that matter.
She was out there endorsing candidates even before the 2016 election.
Even back in 2016, “Daddy Bernie” had the rapper’s support.
And it seems like Bernie Sanders is totally on board with the support he’s gotten from Cardi.
In an interview with MSCNB, Bernie said he was grateful for her support and shared that they’ve actually had one on one chats to discuss important issues facing the country today.
He also praised Cardi B for her interest in politics and knowledge of American history.
Cardi B was also one of the first to come to the defense of Rep. Ilhan Omar.
After chants of “send her home” at a Trump rally, Cardi B was quick to take to Instagram to show her support for Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN). The congresswoman was the target of the racist chants and also one of the targets of Trump’s racist tweets. But Cardi B wasn’t having any of it.
Even ABC News has admitted that Cardi B’s voice carries a lot of weight.
Never underestimate the voice of a strong woman.
Although Cardi may be taking some heat from people upset about her sharing her views, she’s algo getting a lot of support on social media.
Most comments on social media say they’re not usually happy when celebs try and get involved in politics. But many were absolutely stanning for Cardi B – a strong willed, fierce, Afro-Latina woman sharing her views on politics and speaking her mind. And that is something I think we can all get behind.
