They say the best things in life are free, and that big things come in small packages, and these both ring true for everyone's favorite Love & Hip Hop star Cardi B. Cardi is quickly on the rise to becoming more than just a "stripper bih". Cardi has proven she is more than just a LHHNY charicature, and a fat ass. Though she isn't in what some may deem the socially acceptable packaging, Cardi is a feminist force to be reckoned with. If you have been keeping up with the Love & Hip-Hop series, then I'm sure you can mindlessly recite the countless quotables our girl Cardi constantly rattles off.
From day one Cardi has unapologetically stood in her truth. She has never tried to moonlight for public praise. In spite of criticism, Cardi has continued to stand up for women, and social justice, using her platform to bring awareness to racial issues in America, as well as the double standards the women face in relation to sex, and feminine hygiene. Most recently Cardi B has stunned the world in her Fashion Bomb Daily shoot. The now Rapper donn's high end garments styled by Atiba Newsome exclusively for Claire Summer's FBD. Opposite the Cardi the world was introduced to, Newsome brought to life the refined Cardi that I'm sure is here to stay.
Like Chance The Rapper, Cardi is another example of God's work. While Cardi didn't get her start on the straight and narrow it is clear is she is taking her blessings and running with them. As she continues to move up and onward from her initial struggle, the growth Cardi is beginning to exude is undeniable. As La Presidente of the Cardi B club, I am so happy for her growth, and success as it is a shining reminder to us all that nothing is impossible.
