Cardi B’s Hip Hop Awards Twerk Session Is Sending Fans Off The Deep End

It went DOWN.

Published October 16, 2018

With four awards in her name, Bronx rap star Cardi B brought the bars and the cakes to the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, which aired on Tuesday night (October 16).

Opening up her set with “Get Up 10,” the opener of her debut Invasion of Privacy album, Bardi came dressed and danced to impress in camo gear and a thick dance troupe. Cardi gave the fans what they wanted with the lead track’s stirring bars. But in only a way Bardi knows how, she flipped the script and bust down the house with her latest smasher alongside creative partner and rapper Pardison Fontaine for their collaborative, “Backin It Up” single. The 26-year-old did away with her camo trench and did it up with a twerk-happy stage showdown for her verse on the track, dropping down on all fours and bouncing her cakes to Bardi Gang glory.  

The internet is on the floor, too—after fainting from Cardi’s bootylicious performance that is.

See it all go down (literally) in Cardi's performance and the internet's explosive reactions below.
