as you know,
i didn’t jump on this cardi b wave.
i have no desire to listen to her album.
i’d probably watch.
who i use to rock with,
isn’t on the “cardi” wave either.
when asked about cardi on “the breakfast club”:
she dragged the same beyonce in the past.
irony that same radio station was promoting tf outta cardi.
well it led to cardi responding on her social media…
…which opened the gate for azealia going tf in:
…which also led to cardi’s publicist making a statement:
why did her publicist think that statement was a good idea?????
his/her job is to put out the fire not pour gasoline on it.
it led to this:
even tho i think azealia banks is problematic her damn self,
i don’t see any lies in her rebuttals.
cardi’s “rise” is very strange and i’m left waiting for the “gotcha!”.
she can’t even perform,
her rapping voice makes my skin crawl,
and she comes off like a creation in a lab.
the white folks love everything about her tho.
i’m just so confused at it all.
if beyonce or rihanna was to act like her,
from the bad grammar to the squawking,
we would have been cancelled those two.
black folks need to be absolutely perfect to get any respect.
cardi is the stereotypical traits of our culture being celebrated.
everyone who “acts black”,
but isn’t black,
always gets a pass.
we try that same shtick and our own people will throw us away.
it’s so weird to me,
but azealia is onto something with that one.
i’m half and half in allowing it since the messenger has her own issues too.
