Cardi B house dreame In Atlanta On Christmas Day For $5.795 Million

For almost five years, Cardi B has been on a trajectory of success that is unstoppable. From her first appearances on VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: New York” to the release of her music singles and partnerships with various companies, Cardi B has not stopped at all. Even when she gave birth to her daughter Kulture, just months after the release of her debut album “Invasion of Privacy,” Cardi B has earned every ounce of her fame. Through it all, she has taken her fans and followers on the crazy ride via Instagram. We’ve gone on private planes with her, seen her eat the most delicious foods, and of course, experienced every luxurious piece of fashion — but nothing compares to her latest acquisition. 

After two years of house hunting, Cardi B and Offset finally found their dream mansion in Atlanta. The couple also gave fans a tour of the whole place.

The couple closed on their home on Christmas Day and what a present it was. Cardi B was so ecstatic to share her home with her fans. She was giddy and very emotional too. At one point she was about to break down in tears as she walked through the massive living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, but said: “I’m not going to cry, I’m not a p*ssy.” But crying over finally having a home is something to be proud of, and there’s nothing wrong with expressing tearful emotion. 

Cardi B wrote on her Instagram that the journey of buying a house had been a roller coaster. “Houses that @offsetyrn liked there was always a room I didn’t like that we couldn’t agree on ????and a couple of houses that I liked @offsetyrn said NO because the areas they wherein are not too good. We even though about building a house but with a family that’s a bit complicated.”

The house was listed for $5.795 million. It boasts 22,000 square feet of space on 5.8 private acres. It features five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and four half-bathrooms.

Cardi B guided us through every inch of the house. From the master bedroom to Offset’s man cave basement. There’s also a massive room that will be dedicated to the children only. The home also comes with an office/mini library, but Cardi said that would be the room where Kulture would have to go to during her timeouts. 

Here’s how the listing describes the house. “No expense spared or detail overlooked when building this entertainers’ dream home. Chef’s kitchen opens to fireside fam room & outdoor terrace w/ kitchen & fireplace perfect for al fresco dining. Formal LR w/ 30’ ceilings & solarium. Formal DR. Office. Master on Main w/ fireside sitting room, huge h/h closets & spa-like bath. 4 large upstairs bdr/baths plus a great playroom. Terrace level w bar, 1800 bottle wine cellar, fireside family room & much more. Panoramic views of infinity pool & flat, deep backyard. Four car garage.” But according to Cardi’s real estate agent, as many as eight cars fit in the garage. 

What’s so beautiful about Cardi’s success is that she shares it with her family and friends. She also said we were all invited to her house. No kidding!

Just a couple of days before Christmas, Cardi B’s sister Hennessy celebrated a birthday, and her big sis gave her a 2020 Mercedes-AMG G63 that starts at $126,550.

We could tell Hennessy was thrilled to receive her new birthday gift because she could not stop saying, “oh my god.” That is literally all she said, but the best part of the video is seeing Hennessy surprised by the car while she was wearing a bathrobe. Classic. 

And just days before that, Cardi B also gifted her man $500,000 for his birthday.

“You don’t have to give me this money,” Offset said to Cardi B in the video posted on Instagram. “I don’t know what to give you, and I gotta give you something,” she said. “You could buy a car. You could buy more clothes. You could buy jewelry. You could buy me more Birkin bags,” she told him. “You could do whatever … you want.”

We adore Cardi B for being so genuine to those that support her and love her back.

With all those checks pouring in, it’s nice to know that Cardi is still pure at heart. We know that just because she has a large house in Atlanta, she will always be heading out to her grandma’s apartment in the Bronx.

Rising Star Chesca Talks Career Beginnings, Being a Latina in the Music Industry, Performing at Jimmy Kimmel and More

Welcome to Spotlight, where we do a deep dive into the careers of artists, producers, songwriters, and more people making an impact in the Latin music industry.

Puerto Rican singer Chesca is the definition of a hustler. She started as the vocalist for her dad’s cover band in Puerto Rico and became her own manager booking shows in places like China and Greece. The world is hers for the taking and she is going for it.

Chesca is ready for global stardom and she’s taking it one step at a time.

During our interview here at Latido Music by mitú, Chesca opened up about how a tragic accident at 11 years old changed her life, how music literally saved her, and the sacrifices she’s had to make to be where she is today.

Watch the full interview below:

Chesca is aware that being a Latina in the music industry isn’t easy but feels compelled to share her story and everything she’s had to do to get here. She would pretend to be her own manager and publicist at the beginning of her career. Chesca would book herself shows around the world where she would get to perform her own original songs. One of her songs actually got picked up by the radio in China, which is a market not many Latin stars even imagine entering, especially not when they’re just starting their careers.

“With everything that I’ve been through, I have a voice, and I have a story to tell that can motivate so many young women, that’s what keeps me going,” Chesca says.

While she had some success performing in English, she felt that she needed to go back to her roots and start doing music in Spanish. The stars aligned, and Chesca was signed by Saban Music Group, and currently has some high-profile collaborations under her belt. She’s behind the viral hit like “Te Quiero Baby (I Love You Baby),” which blew up on TikTok and led her to perform at the Latin Billboards last year with Pitbull.

Chesca most recently performed at the 2021 Latin AMAs red carpet and received a nomination for Best New Latin Artist at the 2021 iHeart Radio Music Awards.

After our conversation with Chesca, it’s clear that she’s making the right moves at the right time to make a name for herself in the industry, and we can’t wait to see what’s next for her career.

Cardi B Says She’s Planning on Releasing a Line of Hair-Care Products For Afro-Latinas

Looks like Cardi B is following in Rihanna’s footsteps and getting into the beauty game! According to a recent Instagram post, the Bronx-born rapper is going to be releasing a line of hair-care products for Afro-Latinas this year.

“This year I will be coming out with a hair[care] line that I been working on at home for my hair and my daughter’s,” Cardi announced on Instagram on Tuesday.

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib)

She explained that the decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas was inspired by her realization that it’s “time for people to educate themselves on nationality, race and ethnicity.”

“Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light, or don’t make your face features slim, [e]specially Latin countries from the Caribbean islands,” she explained further. “DNA [has] something to do with your hair, not your nationality.”

As many Latinos know, many non-Latinos are uneducated about the diversity of Latinidad. People expect all Latinos to look like Eva Longoria or Salma Hayek. But as we know, Latino is an ethnicity, not a race. Latinos come in all different shades, with vastly different features.

The comments on Cardi’s post were elated at the news that she would be releasing hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.

“Thank you!!! I’m Panamanian and they act like we don’t exist!” wrote one fan.

“Hair doesn’t have ethnicity. It has texture. It’s not black hair or white hair. It’s curly hair or straight hair. Kinky hairy or curly. 4a or 4c. People just generalize it and don’t understand,” wrote another.

On Twitter, another fan wrote: “Ok fav let’s talk about the hair care line you talking about so I can buy it and I won’t have to keep making the mask, forget everything else.”

Cardi’s decision to make hair-care products for Afro-Latinas came from (what else?) a Twitter argument.

When a Twitter user decided to challenge Cardi’s Blackness (again). The argument started when a Twitter user was claiming that Cardi’s hair pattern disqualifies her from being considered “Black.” So Cardi took it upon herself to educate her followers about the existence of Afro-Latinos. She also gave her followers a history lesson on the Dominican Republic.

The conversation got so frustrating that Cardi tweeted: “I think I’m going to do a video of different Hispanic people or Latin people or w.e. the correct term is nowadays. Cause people be thinking that every Hispanic is Mexican or something and must have the same hair texture, color, and features.”

Cardi B has always been passionate about hair-care. Last year, she shared a DIY hair mask recipe that she uses on her and Kulture’s rizos.

The hair mask consisted of argan oil, castor oil, olive oil, and mayonnaise. Since then, the at-home hair mask has gained a small but vocal fan club online.

If her hair mask recipe is a preview for things to come, we can’t wait to buy Cardi B’s hair-care products for Afro-Latinas.
