If you’ve been streaming, YouTube-ing, or simply blasting Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” from its June release up until now, you should be privy to what much of hip-hop is celebrating right now: Cardi is No. 1!
Seated next to Lauryn Hill’s 1998 “Doo Wop (That Thing),” Cardi’s breakout smash hit has not only snatched the top-tier of Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, but also the attention of Hollywood’s top players. That’s right — the regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx with a mic, some bars and a dream has not only bagged a huge thumbs-up from Roc Nation’s J. Cole, but also the OG legends such as Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, and even Olympian gold medalist Simone Biles.
So if you didn’t think summer of 2017 was Bardi Gang-heavy before, these 17 artists below who are shouting-out Cardi for her Billboard throne spot should certainly do it.
