Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar known as Cardi B was born in Manhattan and raised in the Bronx, New York. Cardi B is a former stripper and Love & Hip-Hop co-star who is now one of the top female rappers in the industry. Cardi B had a lot of people going against her due to her former stripper and co-star on L&HH, but she proved them wrong by achieving her goal and becoming a rapper and mother of her 1-year old daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus. She’s had multiple hits on the top 100 hits, but one song that made her career take off was “Bodak Yellow.” Many people would say Cardi B is a great role model because of all the obstacles she had to face and how she changed her life for the better. Would you agree?
