I do like the song with Chance The Rapper "Best Life".

Cardi B is someone you want to "win" .

Had to Google who she was because I thought the name sounded familiar. It turns out that she's not who I thought she was but I kind of surprised myself that I actually had heard of her before from being on that remix of the Bruno Mars song.

Anyway, I downloaded her album out of curiosity and after listening to the first 4 songs I deleted it. Really not my cup of tea.

Cardi B to Join Jimmy Fallon as First-Ever 'Tonight Show' Co-Host
April 03, 2018 by Evan Real The Hollywood Reporter
nup_181188_1039-h_2018.jpg
Cardi B can now add late-night co-host to her résumé.

The Bartier Cardi rapper is set to join Jimmy Fallon as The Tonight Show's first-ever co-host. Cardi B will work alongside Fallon when she returns to Studio 6B on April 9, NBC announced Tuesday.

This will mark the chart-topper's third appearance on Fallon's late-night show. Back in September, she and G-Eazy performed their hit No Limit, and this past December, Cardi B delighted fans — and Fallon himself — when she ranted about the downside of fame and fortune.

"Everybody that I know got kids. And this is like, a lot of kids. And I got new godkids out of nowhere," the former reality TV personality said. "You know, once you start making money everybody wants you to be their kid’s godmother or something."

While Cardi B will undoubtedly reveal more anecdotes during another one-on-one with Fallon, she also will stick around to help him interview other guests throughout the program. The Bronx native will then double as the night's musical guest and perform material from her debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy, available everywhere April 6.

Cardi, born Belcalis Almanzar, made history in 2017 with the release of her global smash Bodak Yellow, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a staggering three weeks, making it the longest-charting unaccompanied No. 1 hit by a female rapper since Lauryn Hill's Doo Wop (That Thing) spent two weeks at No. 1 in 1998.

Cardi, whose "Bodak Yellow" was nominated for best rap song and best rap performance at the 2018 Grammys, has also surpassed Beyonce as the first woman to have five top 10 singles simultaneously on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Cardi will also be the musical guest on the April 7 episode of Saturday Night Live with guest host Chadwick Boseman, star of Black Panther and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

Pretty sure that Geto Boys, Snoop Dogg, NWA, Ice-T, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, 2pac, etc. and movies like Boyz In The Hood and New Jack City did that over 20 years ago. lol Even Kris Kross had a few songs about gang life and their 1st album was huge in the early 1990s. You can even count Michael Jackson with the Beat It, Bad, & The Way You Make Me Feel videos in the 1980s and Smooth Criminal had a mafia style speakeasy club and a drug dealer played by Joe Pesci. Mike was way bigger at the time than Cardi B is now.

lol but MJ wasn't initiated, right?

Idk I'm just tired of hearing about gang members killing innocent people around here... its kinda sad that we glamorize violence in pop culture in the 20-teens because people "did it in the 90s". It wasn't cool then, isn't cool now when innocent people are shot down in crossfire/collateral damage over dumb shit like using c and k sounds in words.

Hmm, that's always been the case like the deacdes long popularity of westerns in the US plus Jimmy Cagney era mob movies, film noir, Sinbad the sailor, Godzilla/Mothra/King Kong, Dracula, Frankenstein, Invisible Man, and 1950s juvenile delinquent movies and 1960s biker movies. There's violence in the 3 Stooges, Tom & Jerry, Bugs Bunny, The Simpsons, 1970s Blaxploitation movies, Shakespere, Hong Kong martial arts flix, mythology, comic books, soap operas, video games, old fairy tales, Aesop's Fables, Brer Rabbit, TV cop shows, etc. John Wayne was not popular because he played nice and kind characters. lol Star Trek is basically a outer space military and the other movie series is called Star Wars. People are patriotic for the military and police, and they're basically formal gangs. There's even initation rituals like "wog day". Some of the general public has been fascinated by outlaws like Billy the Kid, Bonnie & Clyde, Charles Manson, Jack the ripper, Adolf Hitler, and others. There's true crime TV shows like Dateline and Cops. The bible is full of violence, including Jesus' crucifixion. Even the game where you have to guess the word is called "hangman". People watch boxing, MMA, WWE, American football, and people post videos of schoolyard fights on Youtube, Vine, and Worldstar. Superhero movies are some of the biggest box office money makers now. There's the popularity of Chuck Norris jokes & memes. Also those guys who shoot up schools & churches and suicide bombers are not members of street gangs. The popularity of violence didn't begin with the invention of movies, recorded music, & TV. People stood around to watch lynchings, hangings, and to see if people were witches by seeing if they could float or survive being set on fire, the Roman gladiator era, and those ancient torture devices.

From watching the Tonight Show now, I'd like to see Cardi, Rosie Perez, Sofía Vergara, Iris Chacón, Gloria Trevi, & Charo together on a show or movie. lol Maybe add Aubrey Plaza.

LOL

I know on the majority of Whodini's classic hits Larry Smith was puttin the nasty on it

with that bass geetar. I'm guessing Thomas done some work on their debut album with

Haunted House of Rock.

As for Cardi B I thought Bodak Yellow was mad weak. Money Bag sounds better but it also pretty

much sounds like it's straight from Nikki Minaj's factory. I'm waiting on Mariah Carey to dial her

up any minute now for a collaboration. lol
