For years Nicki Minaj has been one of the only female hip hop artists on the radio, but it looks like all that is changing.
Newcomer Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow is one of the most popular songs out right now, and while she may be new to some, she sure isn’t new to the spotlight.
To help you get better acquainted with hip hop’s newest “it girl,” check out my 5 fun facts about Cardi B below.
