During his press rounds for Eugene O'Neill's The Iceman Cometh, Washington stopped to speak with the folks at The Root and dished about his admiration for one particular Cardi B song.
When asked if he listens to the newfound chart topper, he wasted no time in pointing out that he loves her breakout smash, "Bodak Yellow."
