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.

Someone Turned Cardi B’s Coronavirus Rant Into A Remix Now It’s On The Billboard Charts

Cardi B/ Instagram

Who knew Cardi B’s rants could be music to someone’s ears.

If you haven’t already heard, Cardi B went one very long Instagram rant about the Coronavirus pandemic and its global repercussions. Last Wednesday, the Dominican rapper posted a 46-second video on Instagram airing out her fears and grievances about the disease. Towards the end of the clip Cardi B delivered the lines “Coronavirus! S*** is real! S*** is getting real!”

Now it’s Billboard hit.

Over the weekend, the Brooklyn-based DJ iMarkkeyz chopped up the soundbite and released a track called “Coronavirus.” The bit has Cardi B’s rant on loop as a trap beat plays beneath it. It didn’t take long for “Coronavirus” to take off– the song we mean. The song broke into the pop charts internationally in Bulgaria and Brazil over the weekend and eventually began to climb the ranks of iTunes. By Thursday the song was top 10 in the United States iTunes chart.

You might think the song’s virality is just another schtick but uh uh.

Cardi B and iMarkkeyz have pledged to donate proceeds from streams and downloads to go towards those affected by Coronavirus.

According to Billboard “As preliminary reports indicated, the remixed tune ‘Coronavirus’ sold 3,000 copies in the week ending March 19, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The sales total prompts a No. 9 debut on Billboard’s Rap Digital Song Sales and a No. 13 start on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales charts dated March 28. In addition, ‘Coronavirus’ picked up 626,000 U.S. on-demand streams in the same period”

Cardi B is known for her music and her videos on social media. She has been able to break down issues in our politics as well as defending laborers and sex workers. Now, the rapper is discussing one topic that has everyone talking: the novel coronavirus or COVID-19.

Cardi B is getting nervous about novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Like only Cardi B can, the rapper injected a little bit of humor into this dark and scary time for so many Americans. Schools are being closed. The NBA has suspended the rest of the 2020 season. New York is closing down Broadway after gatherings of 500 people were banned by the governor.

Cardi B addressed the health crisis on Instagram because she often shares her opinions to give a different perspective.

“Government, let me tell y’all m—— f——— something. I don’t know what the f— this coronavirus is about,” Cardi B said in the video. “I don’t understand how this shit was from Wuhan, China now all of a sudden this shit is on our m—— f——— soil. And let me tell y’all something. I’m not even gonna front. A bitch is scared. I’m a little scared, you know what I’m saying. Like, shit got me panicking.”

Cardi B admitted that she might not have taken this viral pandemic seriously enough at the beginning but now “s— is getting real.”

But now, she is getting ready in response to the virus spreading across the U.S. According to the latest numbers, the U.S. currently has more than 1,300 people sick with the novel coronavirus. Thurty-eight people, mainly based in Washington state, have died of COVID-19. The most common demographic to die from the coronavirus are the elderly and those with underlying health conditions, like heart disease and diabetes.

During a second video, Cardi B injects a little bit of her classic style of humor with some rubbing alcohol.

Cardi B speaks on the real effect the coronavirus is having on the stock market and the real impact the virus will have on everyday people.

“Government. Government. Government. You wanna know something. I know s—’s getting real,” Cardi B says in the video. “Once the stock market starts going low, that’s how I know s—’s getting real cause ain’t nothing that white corporate America hates the most than losing m—— f——— money.”

She continued by telling viewers that she just wants to know a basic timetable of what to expect from this disease so she can start stocking up on emergency food. She also says she was considering moving to on of the Caribbean islands but that the disease spreading there is leaving with the option to move to Antarctica.

Health experts are currently working to find a vaccine for COVID-19. However, it is estimated that we are a year and a half away from achieving the vaccine.

The best way to prevent catching the virus is to wash your hands with soap and water for 24 seconds multiple times throughout the day after touching surfaces. It is also beneficial to avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth as that’s one way the virus can take hold.
