Cardi B Says Last Year Was One Of The Most Difficult Periods Of Her Life

Cardi B doesn’t often get serious. She likes to joke around and put on this big personality, but during a recent interview for Complex’s “360 with Speedy” series, the 31-year-old rapper decided to get deep.

She admitted she hardly accomplished anything last year because she was afraid to post anything or just live her life, in fear of negative comments.

I just feel like I lost myself with everything. A lot of music commenters and everything and a lot of people just be like, ‘She’s afraid to drop an album, she’s afraid to drop music. Like last year, I barely dropped music. It’s just like I was just afraid to do everything.

She did release “Bongos” with Megan Thee Stallion last year, but that was it. She hasn’t dropped a full album since 2018, but obviously she’s stayed in the game with smash hits like “WAP” and “Up

It sounds like she’s placing at least some of the blame on all the trolls and haters online…

I was afraid to go live, I was afraid to post a picture, I was afraid to go to the club, and then the next day seeing people, what they going to say about me. All I see is the next day, ‘Oh, Cardi got her nose done!’ I don’t even want people to know where the f–k I’m at or what the f–k I’m doing … every day is some new s–t.

The good news for her fans? She’s entering her “DGAF” phase, and she’s coming back strong. She’s already released two songs this month and has plans to drop a new album soon.

I  should be catering to [the fans], ’cause you’re the ones that put money in my pocket, and you’re the ones that love me. One single and y’all getting an album.
