Cardi B Becomes First Solo Female To Win Best Rap Album At Grammys

Cardi B became the first solo female artist to win best rap album at the Grammys after being honoured for her debut effort Invasion Of Privacy.

The Bronx-born hip-hop star was visibly emotional after her name was read out ahead of genre heavyweights Pusha T, Travis Scott and the late Mac Miller.

Accompanied to the stage by her husband, Migos rapper Offset, Cardi B thanked the couple’s daughter, Kulture, who was born in July last year.


She said:  “I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter. It’s because, you know, when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete, like three songs that I was for sure having.

“And then you know, you know how it was, we was like, we have to get this album done so I could still do videos while I’m still not showing. And it was very long nights.”

In a typically colourful aside, Cardi B admitted she was nervous and joked: “The nerves are so bad. Maybe I need to start smoking weed.”

The 26-year-old became the first female solo artist to win the best rap album Grammy since its inception in 1996, though Lauryn Hill won it as part of hip-hop group Fugees, alongside Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel in 1997.
