Cardi B is the baddest woman in the music industry. "Bodak Yellow" has soared to number one on the Billboard Charts and she has continued to grow her music career by being purely original. She's inspiring and (let's face it) our Spotify playlists would be so much weaker without her. Below are 20 Cardi B lyrics that will make you feel like a total badass.
Warning: A lot of these lyrics contain cursing. Cardi B is who she is and doesn't need to apologize. Roll with her and enjoy.
