Cardi B And Offset Bought Their Dream Home 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.

A Trump Supporter Tried To Come For Cardi B After She Said She Wants To Be A Politician And Failed

The 27-year-old queen of rap, Cardi B, announced to her Twitter followers Sunday that she’s thinking about becoming a politician. “I think I want to be a politician,” the rapper tweeted, adding, “I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Goverment.” Since then, the rapper has expanded on what she’s thinking she’ll do next to make those dreams come true, including returning to school. Since announcing her interest, Cardi B’s already started expanding on the issues that matter to her. She wants to represent the vast majority of Americans who don’t want war. Cardi B wants gun screening to look more like screening to join the military. Cardi B says she believes “we have the right to bear arms,” but she also believes in raising the minimum age limit to own a gun, requiring “mental check-ups” and “proper training” to screen for gun owners. 

Of course, Trump supporters have come to drag Cardi B, using coded language to attack her intelligence, education and slut-shame her. Good thing Cardi B is self-secure enough to combat classism.

First, Cardi B says she wants to go back to school “a couple of years” to “shake the table.”

“I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense,” Cardi suggested, saying, “I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table.” A few minutes later, Cardi B recalled all the war documentaries she’s been watching lately. “No matter how many weapons a country have you need people! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming they LOVE being American,” she tweeted.

Trump supporter and internet personality Mindy Robinson decided to try Cardi B.

You’re going to need more school than that.  👌🏻,” Robinson tweeted, along with a proofread version of Cardi B’s tweet and the subversive white supremacy symbol. “Your spaces are off too…but hey, how can we hold you accountable for kindergarten level sh*t, am I right?” Robinson asked of Cardi B. 

Cardi took the bait and clapped back with a warning: “don’t want to dog walk you ❤️”

“Sis your lips ashy and you barely have none …Leave me alone,” Cardi responded to the MAGA right’s internet poster child. “I didn’t insulted your party or your believes so please don’t try me and let’s keep sweet OK….don’t want to dog walk you  ❤️,” Cardi added. Of course, Robinson soaked up the attention and responded to essentially assert classism. “I went to college for both American History and Political Science,” Robinson tweeted, adding, “although to be fair…even my cat is more qualified to run for Congress than Cardi B. 👌🏻” 

Robinson concluded her tweet once again with the controversial “👌🏻” emoji, which was initially used by a small set of white supremacists who thought the hand gesture symbolized the “w” and “p” in “white power.” It’s since grown into an internet sensation for the right as a way to “troll” liberals. The “👌🏻” is so ubiquitous that it’s easy for someone who uses it maliciously to just say they’re making an “okay” symbol. From MAGA far-right supporters, it’s become a well-protected microaggression to people of color.

In response, Cardi followed through on her word and dog walked the mierda out of Robinson.

“You really mad cause you stay takin pics like this and mention Trump 20 times a day to get his attention,” Cardi B tweeted back along with a photo of Robinson in an American flag bikini. “HEY! Don’t take your anger out on me cause he don’t wanna fuck you sis  🤷🏽‍♀️ 😩😩,” Cardi B added. The MAGA-supporting right has been consistent in retweeting photos of Cardi B stripping or wearing bathing suits along with captions like, “she and ole AOC can compare how their cup size is inversely proportionate to their IQs.” A “Women for Trump” account with over 5,000 followers shared the news along with calling the rapper “Low IQ Cardi B.” We don’t even need to explain why “low IQ” is a racist dog whistle.

“Cardi B for Congress” has started a conversation on classism and has already generated campaign banners.

The irony of suggesting someone couldn’t be a member of congress because of their grammar despite the fact that the president you so vehemently support uses nothing higher than 3rd-grade level diction 🤦🏾‍♂️grammatical skills ≠ intelligence,” another supporter tweeted at Robinson and Cardi. “Let me tell you something cause every time I post anything political I get attack all type of crazy,” Cardi later tweeted. “If you are a conservative & if you support a opposite party that’s OK( unless you racist)we can get into friendly debates on here voice your opinion… And I’ll voice mines HOWEVER don’t try me and don’t take my kindness for weakness.I BE VIOLATING!!! I don’t really like being on that type of time. We grown! Let’s be grown. Lets teach and learn.”

In conclusion, in the words of another Twitter user, “If Donald Trump is the president of the United States right now I don’t see why Cardi B can’t be a politician.”

Cardi B Is Releasing A New Album In 2020 And She Just Posted A Sneak Peek

iamcardib / Instagram

Cardi B’s career has absolutely skyrocketed since she exploded onto the scene in 2017. Of course, she had already been around for awhile before releasing “Bodak Yellow,” appearing regularly on VH1’s reality series Love and Hip Hop: New York in pursuit of big music dreams (she also released two mixtapes long before her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts in 2018). In 2019, Cardi B took her career up a notch, serving as a judge on Netflix’s Rhythm + Flow and making her acting debut alongside J Lo and Constance Wu in Hustlers.

And although fans are excited that she’s been exploring other creative opportunities, several folks are starting to get restless for more music. Fortunately for them, the NYC rapper confirmed that a new album is due to arrive sometime in 2020, sharing a brief clip of her upcoming single on Twitter last week.

While Friday, January 10 is Global Release Day for music, few artists actually participate, and Cardi B’s album is no exception—while little is known about the upcoming LP, it is unlikely to appear right away. In the meantime, fans have enjoyed the two singles she’s dropped since Invasion of Privacy: “Press” and “Please Me,” though Cardi B told Billboard that she’s hoping to embrace a different sound with her new album.

“It has evolved a lot, especially because I’ve been listening to different types of music,” she said. “But . . . there’s the challenge of it. Because there’s certain types of music that I want to do, but I feel like—is people interested in that? I feel like things have changed . . . but I cannot just go with what’s hot. I still gotta do what I want to do.”

That approach seemed to work out for Cardi B’s first album which, in addition to topping the Billboard 200, earned her a Grammy for best rap album (and making her the first solo female rapper to win in that category). But even if the rapper is trying to stay true to her vision, she’s not trying to replicate what she achieved with Invasion of Privacy. Referring to that record, she told Billboard: “I was going with what I want people to hear, and what I like, so that’s what I’m doing now,” adding, “I’m just having fun in the studio, because if you think, ‘My first album was like this, I gotta have the same recipe,’ it’s just not gonna work.”

And in spite of another acting role in Fast and Furious 9—as well as another lead film role that the rapper mentioned, but wasn’t at liberty to describe—Cardi B is devoting as much time as possible to the production of her new album.

“My album is on my mind 24/7,” she said. “It’s practically all I’m focusing on.”

The news of Cardi B’s upcoming album is also accompanied by another major milestone: Invasion of Privacy currently sits at No. 56 on the Billboard Top 200, meaning that Cardi B is tied with Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill for the longest-charting debut album by a female rapper in history. Miseducation occupied its place on the charts for 91 weeks, and it appears as though Invasion of Privacy just might break that record.

In addition to winning Cardi B a record-breaking Grammy, Invasion of Privacy also earned a nomination for Album of the Year. The single “I Like It” won a nomination for Record of the Year and “Be Careful” earned a nomination for Best Rap Performance. With such a hard-hitting debut, Cardi B’s sophomore album has a lot of hype to live up to—but when asked about the legacy of “Bodak Yellow,” the hit that started it all, Cardi B seemed proud of her past success, alluding to great optimism and enthusiasm for what’s to follow.

“It’s just the littest song of ever,” she said about the song. “Every party, every New Year, every Cinco de Mayo, every Thanksgiving, it’s just that type of song that you want to play to turn the party up . . . It’s that song that makes you feel like that b–ch, that girl. ‘Bodak Yellow’ is that girl.”

So if “Bodak Yellow” is “that girl,” what kind of bops can we expect from album number 2? The sneak preview above gives us a bit of an idea, and Cardi B’s statement last fall about naming her next album Tiger Woods—which she has since dismissed as a joke—might also offer some clues about the vibes of her upcoming record.

“I think I’m going to name my album Tiger Woods . . . because, remember when everybody was talking sh*t on Tiger Woods . . . and then he f*cking came and won that green jacket? That’s what I’m going to name my album.”
