Bronx bred reality star and rapper Belcalis “Cardi B” Almanzar gained fame as an Instagram star with her comedic twist on real life issues in 15 second video clips. After dropping out of college at the age of 18 and becoming an exotic dancer until she was 23, the fiery Afro-Latina didn’t let her career path define her. It was her raw and real delivery as she shared her views on today’s world that garnered her 780,000 loyal followers.

Cardi B instantly became an Internet sensation and started locking in gigs to host at top venues in NYC, but it was her increasing fan base (now over 4 million) along with her unfiltered views that caught the attention of Love and Hip Hop: New York producers and history began to write itself for Cardi B.

From the moment that she appeared on our TV screens during season six of LHHNY, we followed her on Instagram (@iamcardib) and became fans FOREVA.
