Cardi B’s net worth, as you’ve just read, is $40 million – behind which is a more interesting and inspiring story than the rags-to-riches stories that we’re so used to.
She actually started off with nothing and not only did she manage to make all this money, but she also started a family with another famous American rapper: Offset.
A Check Into Cardi B (Personal) Life Achievements
I bet that if you love Cardi B you want to know more about her than just her net worth. In this part, we will discover everything about her personal life and achievements in terms of career as well as family.
She Kept The Information About Her Parent’s Names Undisclosed
We do not know much about Cardi B’s early life because of even the names of her parents. All that we know about her early life is through her interviews or her website Cardi B Official.
Even her name is not the same as it used to be; her birth name was actually Belcalis Almanzar. She is called Cardi B for a very funny and interesting reason.
She has been through a lot (from stripping to gangs) and she loved a particular rum brand known as Bacardi.
The gang that she was a member of, was known as Bloods. She picked Cardi from Bacardi and B from Bloods and since then she’s been known as Cardi B.
Coming back to her parents, we do not know their names, but her father was Dominican, and her mother was from Trinidad. They raised her in Highbridge, South Bronx – but mostly it was her paternal grandmother from Washington Heights who took care of her.
She Started Her Career In An Amish Market In Tribeca
Well, Cardi B’s early practical life was not something that she’d be proud of. She was initially employed by an Amish market in Tribeca, but that did not last for very long.
At the age of 19, she started stripping to raise money. While some would consider this immoral, that helped her in many ways as she joined the school again and avoided domestic violence and other issues.
In 2015 she was cast by VH1 reality show Love & Hip Hop: New York. That was her debut entry in showbiz.
She left the show in 2016 after being one of the most important members of the cast.
Her musical debut was her 2015 remix of Jamaican reggae singer Shaggy’s “Boom Boom” with fellow singer Popcaan. Her solo debut was her 2015 song “Cheap Ass Weave”.
She Have Dated Several Men In Her Music Career
Cardi B had a very active love life before they fell in love with the famous rapper Offset and then married him.
Before doing that, she has been in a relationship with 3 or more men (that are known to the media).
Famous DJ Self is known as Cardi B’s first known and well-established ex-boyfriend. He and Cardi B were dating back in 2015.
Then she started dating King Yella. Although this is not confirmed, because King Yella made this claim after rumors of infidelity between Cardi B and Offset became known. However, Cardi B has rejected this claim.
However, a very well-known relationship is one between Cardi B and Love & Hip Hop co-star and rapper Tommy Geez.
Her Sister Is A Makeup Artist And Model
All these true and false love affairs only proved to be very temporary (as you can see that within the time period of 2015-2016, she had 3 or 4 (established or not) boyfriends.
It was back in 2017 that Cardi B met her then-boyfriend and now-husband Offset: another rapper.
They dated a lot and by the end of that year, both of them got engaged at a private Carmoney in front of a few fellow rappers, friends, and family members.
In 2018 both of them have gotten “secretly” married to each other. In the same year, due to an iCloud leak, a series of cheating scandals came known to the public.
In the same year, she let people know that she was expecting from his husband and she gave birth to Kulture – her only child so far.
Her only known sibling, Hennessy Carolina (sister) is a makeup artist and model.
Let’s Have A Peek Into Her Professional
Her milestone career achievement, other than random hits, was her first and only studio album: “Invasion of Privacy”.
The album was released on April 6, 2018, and won universal acclaim from critics; it was called “one of the best powerful debuts of this millennium”.
Another big career achievement is her debut appearance in a Hollywood movie – loosely based on her own life – “Hustlers”.
An even bigger achievement, in her own field, is being picked as a judge for Netflix’s Rhythm + Flow 2019-2020. She is also the Executive Producer of this show whose aim is to find the USA’s next breakout hip-hop star.
Which Assets Does She like Buying?
In December 2019 the duo purchased a big mansion in Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia for $5.5 million. Likewise, in 2018, she told the media that she bought an expensive house for her mother, who supported Cardi the most whenever she was lacking the motivation to restart making music and not bother about what people say about her voice or features.
Where Does the Money Go?
Cardi spends a major chunk of her money on real estate properties and cars. Other than the $5.5million+ mansion, the family owns many luxury cars, including Rolls Royce.
Well, she usually doesn’t drive her cars, as she always has a driver beside her, but when she is visiting a studio for making new music, she drives her Rolls Royce often.
