Young Cardi B Is Dropping Some Truth In Some Of The Funniest Memes On The Internet

Cardi B has been dropping albums and collabs left and right, working straight through her pregnancy. In the mere ten days since Baby Kulture Kiari Cephas was born, the Internet has taken to turning a 5-year-old “Young Cardi” photo into all the memes.

We are definitely hoping that Baby Kulture has all the same sass that her mama was born with.

Cardi B started it by offering up the pic and asking the Internet to make a meme.

IDK WHY THIS ONE IS SO FUNNY. ???? ????

I’m praying for Kulture to be as confident in her right to know everything as we imagine young Cardi to be.

In case you had a hard time visualizing it the first time: History Buff Cardi.

Baby Cardi B was so ahead of her time, you guys. Screw Superman Pose*, I’m going for a Young Cardi Pose before any interaction with a human.

*Studies show that if you put your hands on your hips and boast your chest out and look up (Super Man), you’re more likely to perform higher on tests, before speeches, etc. It’s a confidence pose, and Cardi has it on lock.

Then there are the meme mashups…

A viral video of a little girl throwing her dad a comeback, “Want to see my stupid face?” has become an internet meme in it’s own right. But Young Cardi will always have the last laugh: “Psh, you already have.”

Of course Neymar made it.

Literally, people are using this image just as a response to people. No caption needed. This breaks all meme rules, but we’re not crying about it. 😉

The most relatable meme ever, however, is here.

You know how you used to invite your non-Latino friends over after school when you knew you might be in trouble because your mom wouldn’t beat you in front of them. Cousins are family, so they don’t count, which means that if the playing were to go on, “that ain’t even hurt.” ????????

“My mom says if you don’t bring me, you’re not going.”

This is how our mother’s trained us to be just like them. The most believeable meme of them all: yes, your mama said that, and yes, Cardi B., we know you did, too.

She has some s a v a g e burns.

@ProjectMonz / Twitter

We love/hate kids for their brutal honesty. Thanks, Young Cardi, thanks a lot.

I’m cringing.

@xotokyoo / Twitter

Look into her eyes and tell me you can’t see her saying just that. ????

And don’t even play like you didn’t say the same thing to 8 of your friends growing up.

Corn Chip Cardi is everything.

@melinacnza / Twitter

Do you ever wonder if our moms just used us to speak their confrontational thoughts so that they can keep being polite? Yeah, it doesn’t ring true to me either. Nobody gave a f*ck.

Some of the memes are trying to bring people closer to the Lord.

@melinacnza / TwitterYou guyyysss…. Saturday night sleepovers were only allowed with your Catholic friends, because the Lord knows everything, and sees everything.

Body Shamer Young Cardi

I can see why adult Cardi started to have a problem with these memes. Although it’s very likely that at some point in the 90’s, a young Cardi might have said that.

PoPo Young Cardi.

@FidelMartinez_1 / Twitter

She’s very attached to her chancletas and wants me to make sure that you don’t take a single one.

“My mamá says why can’t she and my aunts see what you post publicly on Facebook?”

@CashFlow_The1 / Twitter

Ummm… it must be a Facebook error or something. ????????‍♀️ Of course, I want your family to know todo que me hace. ????

Walmart Thief Young Cardi.

@YoungCardiB / Twitter

Someone legit started a new Twitter handle called @YoungCardiB. ????

Honestly, Cardi B. would excel in any career she chose to go down.

 Feminist Young Cardi

Translation: “When you write him and he leaves you on sight. NAH, YOU DIDN’T HURT ME.”

And a diss to Nicki Minaj.

Translation: “My mom says you can’t listen to Nicki Minaj because she curses so much.”

Everyone thinks that Cardi and Nicki have beef, but it’s all #fakenews. This is just the most ironic meme yet.

Cardi B and Mariah Carey Teamed Up to Talk About Confidence, Insecurity, and Prejudice in the Music Industry

At first glance, you may not think Cardi B and Mariah Carey have much in common. But the two chart-topping divas might actually be more similar than they are different.

Cardi B once called herself the “strip-club Mariah Carey”, so Interview magazine recruited the Afro-Venezuelan songstress herself to interview Belcalis.

In a new conversation in Interview magazine, Cardi B and Mariah Carey teamed up to talk about the challenges they’ve had to face as famous women of color coming from tough backgrounds.

And in case you thought otherwise, Mariah Carey was not throwing any softballs. The conversation was intense. The women covered everything from confidence, to body image, to prejudice in the music industry. It didn’t seem like either of the women held back.

Mimi opened the interview by asking Cardi if she ever felt beautiful as a child. Surprisingly, Cardi responded opened up about a topic that society doesn’t take about very often: anti-Blackness in the Latino community.

“I’m Trini and I’m Dominican, there’s a lot of Dominicans that look a certain type of way [in the Bronx]. They have soft, pretty, curly hair. Growing up, guys would ask me weird questions like, ‘If you’re Dominican, why is your hair so nappy?'”

Cardi went on to admit that she bleached and permed her hair when she was young to the point where she damaged her hair. But she soon learned to take care of her natural hair and appreciate it for what it was.

Cardi’s confession about her hair prompted Mariah to reveal her own vulnerable story. “It was a very traumatizing thing for me having a black father and a white mother, because my mother, who raised me, didn’t really know about textured hair,” Mariah said.

The superstar duo also touched on the sensitive topics of racism and prejudice in the music and fashion industries.

In fact, MC point-blank asked Cardi B: “Do you feel that the record industry or the fashion industry, from your perspective, is inherently racist?”. Cardi explained that she wouldn’t technically use the word racist, but has “felt prejudice.”

“I have been involved in endorsement deals, and then I found out that certain white people got more money for their deals from the same company,” she said. “So it’s like, ‘When you’re not paying me what you’re paying these other people, why is that?’ It’s kind of insulting.”

Cardi also added that Black artists have a tougher time getting dressed by designers and getting seats at fashion shows, even though hip-hop culture influences fashion in so many ways.

Cardi B and Mariah Carey then bonded over the fact that both of them could only be themselves throughout their careers in the public eye.

Mariah applauded the fact that the public doesn’t require celebrities to have a squeaky-clean image anymore. “I do think people are much more accepting now,” she said. “…I do feel like people are, at least in some circles, allowed to be themselves and express themselves more than they were back in the day.”

“People expected me to be something specific, but I can only be me,” she added. “We’re similar in that way.”

Cardi B Goes On Jimmy Fallon And Talks About A Poop Issue So Many Of Us Can Relate To

Cardi B Goes On Jimmy Fallon And Talks About A Poop Issue So Many Of Us Can Relate To

It’s not too often that the lyrics of a Cardi B song are highly ambiguous or leave you wondering what she’s talking about. I mean take the lyrics for her song “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion, we all know what they’re talking about there.

But the lyrics to her song “Up” are a bit less transparent and more open to interpretation. So, during a recent guest appearance on The Tonight Show, she explained to Jimmy Fallon the actual meaning behind the lyrics and although they also have to do with the body, it’s quite a different angle for the “Bodak Yellow” rapper.

Cardi B explained to Jimmy Fallon the meaning behind the lyrics for her song “Up.”

Cardi B left Jimmy Fallon lost for words after explaining the unexpected meaning behind a line in her new single “Up,” as she revealed one part of the song originally referred to an uncomfortable constipation situation. The line in question, which she had borrowed from her husband Offset, is: “If it’s up, then it’s stuck.”

Cardi admitted she initially thought it was a “Georgia thing” as Offset, who is from the state, says it “a lot”, but she soon learned fans from other Southern U.S. states are also familiar with the phrase, so she was inspired to use it too. She said, “After the song came out, I thought it was a Georgia thing, but then people were like, ‘We say that in New Orleans,’ ‘We say that in Florida.’ I’m like, ‘OK, man, listen. I guess, whatever.” 

During the exchange with Fallon, Cardi added: “Um, so have you ever taken a poop, right, and it don’t come out?” “It’s just up and it’s stuck. Yeah,” she shared. After an awkward silence, Fallon uttered, “Wow,” while Cardi simply nodded.

Fallon tried to look for other meanings in the ambiguous lyrics.

A stunned Fallon then offered his own take, suggesting the phrase could be about reaching a certain level of success and then maintaining it.

Cardi followed up, “It’s a metaphorical quote,” suggesting that achievement and constipation are just two of many possible interpretations of the song and that poop probably wasn’t actually on Cardi’s mind when she wrote the tune.

The pair also had fun during the show’s Mimic Challenge segment.

She is always one of the best guests on these shows. It makes them so much more fun to watch.

Meanwhile, get a look at the video for her song “Up” below.

And tell us what you think of the lyrics!
