Cardi B wants you to know that she’s not making music for your kids or your grandkids. In a recent interview on New York City’s FM 97.9 “El Vacilón De La Mañana,” a show known for making your dad laugh and your abuela blush – appropriate for Cardi B’s “get out of my face” attitude – an abuela called in to speak with Cardi. The abuela, trying to be as respectful as she saw fit, tells Cardi that her kids and grandkids love her music, but she has one problem with it herself: the swear words. Cardi B, wasn’t having it.
Cardi B had to pump the breaks on this grandma who was trying to tell the rapper about her music. And she did it in pure Dominicana fashion.

She stops the caller with a strong case for artistic independence saying, in Spanish, “No no no no no, let me tell you, I’m not raising your kids or grandkids. I’m not raising them. The only kids I’m going to have to explain myself to are my kids.” She goes on to further explain how not expressing herself the way she wants to would leave her depressed.
“I’m not going to water down my life, just to be a good example to people,” she said. “Then I won’t be who I am.” Word up, tell’ em, Cardi!

At one point DJ Aneudy nails it saying “ella es ella,” meaning, she’s exactly who she is. You’re damn right. ???
