Let's not forget that she was pregnant and going through stuff.
When she was recording the album, she was pregnant, throwing up from the pregnancy, going through relationship problems, suffering from colds, sleeping on a couch in the studio, and feeling depressed. That's a lot for any artist to go through, but Cardi did it and managed to create an album full of hits.
All the hard work paid off big time.
Imagine having to go through the recording process without a manager! Thankfully, Cardi had help. She acknowledges all of the hard work that her husband Offset put in, too. He talked to her label for her and hooked her up with featured artists.
She's not trying to be humble, and that's OK.
There is nothing wrong with Cardi being proud of herself and feeling like she deserves all the awards, accolades, and success that have come from her efforts. Enough with expecting women kicking butt to express false modesty or humble-brag at best! Let's all take a page from Cardi's book and celebrate our accomplishments shamelessly.
Let's let Nipsey have the last word.
As the late Nipsey Hussle said to Cardi, "WHEN IS YOUR TIME IS YOUR TIME!" So listen up, haters, it's Cardi's time, and there ain't nothing you can do about it.
