The Grammys has dozens of Hip Hop artists in their feelings and Cardi B is no exception.
Amid defending her own honor against Wiz Khalifa on Tuesday (November 24), the multi-platinum superstar also had to contend with her angry fanbase, who went from being mad at The Recording Academy for the hit single “WAP” not being among the nominees to being pissed at Cardi for failing to apply the necessary paperwork.
“Stop playing with me,” she addressed to her massive 78-million strong following. “I’m never pressed for a Grammy, but y’all are not gonna take away something that I know that I worked my ass off that I deserve! If I was pressed for a Grammy I would have submitted ‘WAP’ for this year. I didn’t submitted it! I didn’t submitted it!”
She then revealed she wanted her long-awaited follow-up to Invasion of Privacy to lead the coronations in the future.
“I didn’t want to be submitted to award shows until I put out my album because I think my album is so good, and it just means something and I worked on it a lot,” said the rapper. “I’ve been working on it for almost two years.”
She continued, “Some songs are just so emotional to me because I did them during quarantine. I’m not pressed or nothing, I’m not gonna keep doing this shit constantly, constantly because y’all are upset. Y’all cannot take my success!”
