Los Angeles, Feb 12 (IANS) Singer Cardi B is thrilled to see music genre hip-hop “controlling the music industry”.
“In America, I always look at the charts. Hip-hop is always there. We are controlling the music industry. We control the fashion world. I don’t give a f**k if the fashion comes from a runway or if a Caucasian woman is walking it, once a coloured person wears something, that’s when everybody wants to wear it,” she said.
The rapper believes hip-hop always influences, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The “Bodak yellow” hitmaker told i-D magazine: “We always influence. When you see the Olympics, who always wins? Coloured folks. We win everything. We are a big influence and people want to take that shit away. People like Donald Trump, they’re always going to make us feel like we’re less.”
“But, it’s okay, because a b***h like me knows the truth. It don’t matter if the government and the Republicans try to make us feel like we’re not, cos we is. I know the truth … We run the s**t! We influence. We run everything,” she added.
Cardi B, 25, opened up about being bullied in the past.
“I was getting picked on for the way I dressed. I got jumped in the sixth grade real bad and after that, it changed me. It really did change me. In middle school and high school, it doesn’t matter how tough you are, or it doesn’t matter if you stand for s**t, you ain’t nobody if you are not in a gang,” she said.
“People influence you and tell you that you should join this or you should join that. Then again, it’s a great experience. I wouldn’t be able to rap about the things that I rap about now if I hadn’t grown up there,” added the rapper.
