As rising Bronx femcee Cardi B has promptly reminded us on another one of her cash cows, Instagram, she’s climbing the rap ranks all by herself and without a co-sign crutch.
But even she couldn’t help herself from bursting with excitement once she received a nod from film star heartthrob Idris Elba. Appearing on Cassius with his Dark Tower co-star Matthew McConaughey, Elba let everyone know that he was a certified fan of Cardi’s breakout hit single, “Bodak Yellow.” In fact, he even said that if he ever booked a gig as a DJ at any New York City turn up, he’d spin Cardi’s hit over another 2017 summer smash radio-favorite from DJ Khaled, Rihanna and Bryson Tiller, “Wild Thoughts.”
There you have it folks: Cardi B is the peoples’ champ. And now, fans have one more reason to turn the dial up on “Bodak Yellow” and their fandom for the Bardi Gang leader.
