We think it's safe to say that Cardi B's hit music and sold-out fashion collabs helped her secure some serious bags, and being one that's not afraid to flaunt her success on the ‘gram, the 26-year-old took to social media to announce to the world that she fulfilled her childhood dream— she bought her mama a house!
See for yourself how the 'Money’ rapper, took her 35.8 Instagram followers on a tour of her mom's brand new house in New York:
“Happiest day of my life,” Cardi expressed while taking fans on a tour.
The video starts off in the kitchen, which is equipped with white cabinets and stainless steel appliances. She goes on to explain, “Last year, I was so thirsty to buy my mom a home, and I could only afford a house that cost $600,000, and you know, we live in New York.”
“I waited, I waited, I waited, I waited until I could afford a dream home,” she added.
As the New York native whizzed by the foyer and marveled over her success, she later took us to where she’ll probably be spending most of her time when she visits.
“My favorite part is the basement. Let me show you,” said a proud Cardi as she headed into the basement, which holds an extra bathroom, a gym, and the makings of a home movie theater.
While surveying the new house, the new mom thought about how happy she will be when her daughter, Kulture, whom she shares with rapper Offset, visits her maternal grandmother.
“I’m emotional. […] I’m just happy that when my daughter visits her grandma’s house, she’s going to come here.”
On the next video, she even took us to the top floor showing off the beautiful hardwood floors and extremely long curtains. “So this is upstairs. So happy,” she acclaimed.
“Stay down till you come up!” she captioned her videos, which has already garnered over 3M likes.
“Thank you, everybody, who supported me to make my childhood dreams come true! Buy my momma a house!!” the rapper shared pulled at our heart-strings before adding, “don’t ask me for sh*t motherf*ckers I got big girls bills.”
She's giving us millennials Jeffersons vibes!
