American rapper, Cardi B, has deactivated her Instagram page barely 48-hours after winning the Grammys.
Recall that Cardi B became the first solo female rapper to win the Grammy for Best Rap Album at the 61 ceremonies.
Cardi B beat the likes of Travis Scott, Mac Miller, Pusha T to win the best rap album, which is her first Grammy, for “Invasion of Privacy”.
However, many called her out and said she did not deserve the win.
Before deleting her page, Cardi B recalled how hard she worked during the process of putting her album together in a video. She said;
“It’s not my style for people to put other people down to uplift somebody else.
“That’s not my style and that’s not what I’m with, I don’t support that.
“However, I’ve been taking a lot of s— today. I’m seeing a lot of bulls— today and I saw a lot of s— last night, and I’m sick of this s—. I work hard for my motherf— album.
Cari B also recalled that last year’s Grammys results were not in her favour and people said all sorts eiher for or against her.
WuzupNaija reports that Cardi earned two nominations in best rap performance and best rap song for her track “Bodak Yellow” but did not win for either one.
“I remember last year when I didn’t win for ‘Bodak Yellow’ and everybody was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed,’” she recalled. “Now this year’s a f— problem?! My album went two-time platinum, my n—, and every chart that there was, my album was always Top 10. Number one album, as well.”
“I locked myself in the studio for three months, my n—. Didn’t go to sleep in my bed sometimes for four days straight — pregnant!” she explained. “While everybody was harassing me like, ‘You’re not gonna do it, we know you pregnant, your career’s over…”
Cardi also spoke about all the work that went into making Invasion of Privacy, before she deleted her account on Monday.
“Slept in the studio on leather sofas for 3 months straight, migraines, in Atlanta in Miami away from my family. I have 4 songs that couldn’t make the album cause my nose was so stuffy bro I was huffy puffy,” Cardi captioned a congratulatory post from Chance the Rapper.
“This is overly deserved, the album was front-to-back hits. It would be inconceivable no to honor u last night,” Chance, 25, who was featured on the project, wrote.
“I had @offsetyrn and @brooklyn.johnny reaching out to the world for a verse on top of that I was depressed [sic] cause everybody was suspecting I was pregnant and I constantly kept reading Cardi you ‘STUPID,’ ‘YOU RUINED YOUR CAREER,’ ‘WHY WOULD YOU HAVE A BABY AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR CAREER,” Cardi continued tagging her husband Offset.
“My album went #1 and spend [sic] 21 weeks straight on billboard top ten! Every song is gold or platinum or higher. I listen to my album and I cry because I know the hell I went through doing the album is always a bittersweet memory.”
“THANK YOU, EVERYONE, THAT SUPPORTED ME AND LISTEN. I’m thankful and grateful and again thank you to all the artist that gave me a feature,” Cardi added.
