During an interview on TMZ's Raq Rants, the recent headline-making director explained that he fell in love with Cardi B after just one meeting. He added that he even asked for a selfie video with her at the time and that was the catalyst that propelled her career.
In addition to that, he said the "I Like It" femcee also auditioned for a role on his hit FOX TV series, Star, almost three years ago.
He sang the rapper's praises during the interview and gushed about their meeting.
"My favorite hip-hop artist today is Cardi B," he said. "I was looking for somebody for Star and she came in to audition for me and I said, 'Do you mind if I [take a video]?... Mona [Scott-Young] told me she hired her [for Love & Hip Hop] from my Instagram."
