If you come for Cardi B, she is bound to hit back twice as hard. Following her recent rise to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 charts with her single “Bodak Yellow,” a number of haters have been at the Bronx native’s neck, accusing her of getting fame by stealing Kodak Black’s flow. Tired of the hate, Cardi clapped back like only she can, swearing that she could “body” any flow out there.
In the past, Cardi has admitted to drawing inspiration from Kodak Black’s “No Flockin’” track for her platinum-selling record. But she’s sick of people hanging it above her head. “And for anybody that telling me, ‘Oh b***h, you copied Kodak flow, you copied this and that flow.’ So what, b***h? So what? I’ma sound like all your favorite rappers,” Cardi said at a recent concert. “I’ma take all they flows and I’ma body it, b***h. One day I’ma sound like Kodak, the next day I’ma sound like Meek Mill, the next day I’ma sound like Migos. I don’t give a f**k.”
Although Cardi’s single has done significantly better than Kodak’s 2015 track, she’s never shied away from mentioning the rapper or giving him credit when it’s due. In fact, the rapper even featured the Florida artist on the “Bodak Yellow (Remix),” which debuted on Sept. 20.
Fame comes with its challenges, but hopefully people will let Cardi B live and prosper in peace.
