Offset Proposed to Cardi B and She Said Yes

Offset has proposed to Cardi B. Offset asked the very large question on bended knee (sort of, it was more of a Crouching Tiger Hidden Migos thing) at Power 99's Powerhouse in Philadelphia. The two have been dating since the top of the year. Watch the cuteness of the proposal and Cardi's ecstatic reaction below.

#OFFSET JUST PROPOSED IM SCREAMING 😩😨😨❤️ – @offsetyrn @iamcardib

A post shared by #1 Offset ❤️ Cardi B Fanpage (@bardiset.page) on Oct 27, 2017 at 8:18pm PDT

Cardi took to Instagram to express her love for Offset following the proposal. 

People responded to the beautiful news on the very popular website Twitter.com. 

Rumors that the couple got engaged started to circulate not too long back. It began after the two went jewelry shopping in Atlanta back on August 22. 

An article from Real Cool Nation titled “Exclusive: Cardi B Just Got Engaged To Migos Rapper Offset — He Proposed Last Night!” was published and added fuel to the fire. The article turned out not to be true, well, not until now at least. 

Cardi is featured on Migos' new Culture 2 single “MotorSport” featuring Nicki Minaj. The track came out just hours prior to the proposal. Both Offset and Cardi B's 2017, even not taking into account this whole engagement​ business, has been spectacular. 

Cardi's summer anthem “Bodak Yellow” clenched the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 while Offset's group Migos dropped their second studio album Culture. The album debuted at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 and reached platinum status back in July.

Congratulations are in order, so congratulations to Cardi B and Offset.

Cardi B Explains Cryptic ‘Single’ Instagram Post: ‘I Was Really Upset’

When Instagram aped Snapchat’s “Stories” feature, the mini-clips were set by default to disappear within 24 hours. That setting will likely work to Cardi B’s benefit Saturday after the reality show star-turned chart-topping rapper posted a message hinting at a breakup with her boyfriend and Migos member Offset. Cardi posted a selfie with a text overlay simply reading “Single.”

 

Peace nikka ✌🏽

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on Oct 20, 2017 at 6:44pm PDT

She then appeared to double down on the claim with a standard Instagram picture post featuring her throwing up the “peace” sign with both hands with a caption that read “Peace nikka.”

It was a seemingly abrupt about-face for a couple that was surrounded by some false engagement rumors as recently as August. Despite the fact that many celebrity relationships have the lifespan of a common fruit fly, mutual fans of Cardi and Offset took to Twitter and went into freak out mode.

Later Saturday, by Cardi’s own admission, cooler heads prevailed. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper explained her rationale for the relationship status update.

“So listed babes, I exaggerated a lil bit ’cause earlier I was really upset and the Bronx girl in me always have to go to the extreme,” Cardi said in a subsequent IG Stories post. “I came to my senses now. I’m sorry…Waffle House on me?”

Most fans will likely never find out what caused the spat between Cardi B and Offset because it’s none of our collective business. However, hours after everything calmed down, Cardi had some jokes about the source of the friction.

“Reasons why me and Offset got into it …I think he stoled my purple blanket but it wasn’t him so I’m still looking for the suspect,” she tweeted when fans flooded her mentions about the potential split.

“Why my dad was yelling at me cause somebody told him me and Offset broke up😒..and I’m quick cut my dad off so don’t get comfortable,” Cardi joked via Twitter, referencing a prominent line from the chorus of “Bodak Yellow.”

If Cardi B and Offset were your figurative #RelationshipGoals, you can take solace in the fact that love’s turbulent emotional waters can be navigated by a patty melt and some “scattered, covered and chunked” hash browns at the nearest Waffle House. Love wins.

Safaree Believes Nicki Minaj Is Sweating Over Cardi B’s Success

Because of the world we live in, there seems to only be a few women in the hip-hop game that people talk about. Think about it: even though Cardi B is the people's champ, the conversation immediately cycled to how Nicki Minaj would be reacting to Cardi's “Bodak Yellow” going No. 1, or Cardi being a “poor man's Nicki” or how Cardi reacts when Nicki is even mentioned in conversation. That said, you can't have Nicki's ex Safaree on Everyday Struggle and NOT expect Akademiks or Joe Budden to ask him about the Cardi/Nicki situation.

Around the 30:45 mark in the video up above, Ak point-blank asks Safaree if he feels Cardi has Nicki sweating, to which Safaree simply says, “100 percent.” When Budden asks Safaree why he feels that way, he replies, “Because I know how she is.” Nicki did tweet congrats to Cardi when the news was announced, to which Safaree chalks up to one thing: “You can't like… a hater.” Why would he think she was playing a role as opposed to being sincere with her congrats? Safaree says “if you know somebody, you don’t even have to second guess or wonder.”

That wasn't the only time Nicki's name came up, though. After shying away from breaking down what, specifically, he wrote for her during their relationship, Safaree also answered the question of Nicki possibly falling off by changing from one mink coat to another (28:18 in the video), harkening back to that viral freestyle from back in September.

What Safaree would get into is the altercation with Meek Mill's crew during the BET Awards weekend back in June. As Safaree puts it (around the 14:55 mark), the funny thing was that “I was waiting for my security,” which drew laughs from the crew. He was outside for “30 seconds” talking to “a camera dude” that he knew. Safaree then said he was speaking with DJ Self when all of the sudden, “Boom, I just felt that shit happen in the back of my head.” After getting hit, Safaree remembered that he saw “two people” coming at him “from the front,” and “another group of more people coming at me from the side,” and that's when he started running. He eventually got caught by a bunch of people and getting hit by the side of a car (Safaree remembers just seeing “feet shuffling”), and when he had an open moment, he took off.

When asked about his friend that stayed to fight, Safaree says he “didn't even realize what was happening,” and that he “wanted to go back,” but at that point the people who beat on him were gone.

Safaree got into so much more, from feeling like he has a “black cloud” over him to his lifestyle these days. You can check out all of the full interview with Safaree on Everyday Struggle up above.

This Is What Christian Louboutin Thinks of Cardi B and Her Love for Red Bottoms

Jay Z, Drake, Future, and Kanye West are just some of the many rappers who’ve shown love to designer Christian Louboutin—or, more specifically, his iconic red-soled shoes commonly referred to as “red bottoms.”

Though the reference has become somewhat of a cliché, Cardi B has seemingly given new life to the luxury footwear with her breakout song “Bodak Yellow.” You know the lines: “These expensive, these is red bottoms/These is bloody shoes/Hit the store, I can get 'em both/I don't wanna choose.”

Though the infectious track was released in mid-June, it wasn’t until recently that it became the first solo female rap record to reach No. 1 in nearly two decades. (The last artist to accomplish this was Lauryn Hill with her 1998 hit “Doo Wop (That Thing).”

Clearly, people can’t get enough of Cardi or “Bodak Yellow,” which has now dominated the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a second week in a row. But what does Louboutin think of Cardi and her love for red bottoms? Well, it seems he’s only vaguely familiar with the Bronx MC.

“She has the hair like that?” the French designer told the New York Times, as he put his hands around chin level. “She’s a rapper? This ‘Yellow’ song? […] I don’t know much more than that, to be honest.”

Though he admits he’s not a big rap fan, Louboutin suggested he’d be open to meeting Cardi one day. He also said it seemed fitting that so many performers enjoy his designs, considering where he got his start.

“In a way, it comes back to some of my origins,” he said. “The first shoes I ever designed were for showgirls, people on stage. Showgirls have a kind of attitude—they’re driving forces.”

In a recent interview with Billboard, Cardi’s stylist spoke about the rapper’s affinity for Louboutin and revealed just how many pairs of red bottoms she owned.

“She has to have over 90 pairs,” stylist Kollin Carter said. “[…] She usually buys a pair or two every couple of weeks. Where she’s from, when girls are ready to get dressed up that’s what you wear. And in real life, before 'Bodak' blew up, she wore red bottoms because that’s what it means to make it in the Bronx. It’s a status symbol that the masses can relate to; everyday girls work hard and save up their money to have that shoe. Cardi did the same.”

Cardi B’s Dentist Also Making Money Moves After Shout-Out on “Bodak Yellow”

Cardi B is absolutely killing it right now. She has officially dethroned Taylor Swift from the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow,” making it the first solo woman-fronted rap single to top the chart since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” back in 1998. But Cardi’s song has done a lot more than just make America’s summer better. 

Cardi’s dentist, Dr. Catrise Austin, has reported a significant boom in business due to just one shout-out in the song, proving Cardi B is really out here helping everyone she can make money moves, just like herself. For reference: in one of the verses of “Bodak Yellow,” Cardi raps, “Got a bag and fixed my teeth/Hope you hoes know it ain’t cheap.”

Cardi’s dentist has also done work on DJ Khaled, Common, Toni Braxton, Omarosa Manigault, and Busta Rhymes—but it was only after Cardi B rapped about her work that Dr. Austin noticed a bump in her business. And it’s a pretty significant one: Dr. Austin told TMZ her business has tripled so far, with people Googling and calling her to find out more. She also claims that Cardi’s dental work cost as much as a luxury SUV.

“Just this week, I've got so many calls because people want to know 'who is Cardi B's dentist,'” Dr. Austin said in a video posted to TMZ. She also said Cardi's major dental work last year, followed by the rapper's skyrocketing success, has inspired people of all kinds to come in and change their smile, and consequently “change their lives.”

A post shared by Fabolous (@myfabolouslife) on Sep 1, 2017 at 3:14pm PDT

Rapper Fabolous realized the genius of the line a while ago when he posted a photo with Cardi to his Instagram with the lyrics as a caption, also pointing to some dental work he had done as well. After all, Cardi is definitely not ashamed of her come-up, nor is she trying to hide the fact that she knows where to spend the money coming in from her burgeoning music career. She's open about the work she's done with Dr. Austin in the past, claiming “if you don't feel comfortable about something, go and fix it.”

But it's a testament to Cardi's confidence that she didn't even seem all that bothered pre-dental work. At least not as bothered as her haters, as she tweeted in 2016.

Azealia Banks Accuses Cardi B of Being a ‘Poor Man’s Nicki’ (UPDATE)

UPDATED 11:20 p.m. ET: Cardi responded to Azealia Banks' criticisms with a pointed tweet. She shared a short video of Banks singing along to “Bodak Yellow” in a crowded club. To go along with the clip, Cardi wrote, “One of the reasons Bodak Yellow went #1 cuz even the HATERS LOVE IT !!”

Banks struck back with a vicious social media message of her own, accusing Cardi of using a ghostwriter. “Great songwriting,” she wrote. “Might get the nigga to write for me too!” 

Banks also included an audio message naming the person who she says wrote “Bodak Yellow.” “We know the nigga from Harlem who wrote the song,” she said. “His name is Cole. He's friends with your boyfriend from jail… Everybody in the hood knows you fuck for raps… A bum bitch from the Bronx like you, it's great that you made it. I'm sure it inspired a lot of other bum bitches.” 

You can see and hear Banks' message for yourself below.

Original story below:

It's no secret that Azealia Banks is opinionated. Perhaps, one of the most opinionated rappers of our time. Under the username @XoCheapy, Banks took to Twitter on Monday night to deliver yet another opinion on the heels of Cardi B's widely celebrated No. 1 single, “Bodak Yellow.” In a series of now-deleted tweets, Banks gave her take on what contributed to Cardi's success.

“I'm sorry,” she started off. “Black industry men are too hype for this Latina girl I've never seen them jump like this for remy or nicki.”

She continued: “Spinning this 'for the culture' story when they are simply letting white men at Atlantic buy them into hating their own women.”

She then made a pretty bold fucking statement: “Charlemagne and black men in hiphop should have gotten me, remy AND nicki a number one before they gave cardi or iggy one.”

Pause: I'm sorry, how exactly did they give her a No. 1? Don't you earn a No. 1? Has Cardi not been out here busting her ass, performing non-stop at sold-out shows, dropping remixes of the song to keep it fresh, staying active on social media, and building with another hot rapper who's a part of the biggest group in hip-hop right now? What?

Anyway, Azealia went on to say that white men in the industry are deliberately trying to “buy black men away from black women” and claimed Cardi is only considered as black when it's convenient for a success story. And then, she capped the rant off with a particularly offensive statement: “I wanted spicy Latina and she gave me poor mans nicki.”

One: at this point, it's just lazy to keep comparing Cardi to Nicki. They're both over it, and it's a tired analysis. Two: there's nothing wrong with being mixed race. There's nothing wrong with being Latina. There's nothing wrong with a mixed-race or Latina rapper being successful. 

Regardless of whether Cardi caught wind of this or not, she seems to be just fine. On Monday, when “Bodak Yellow” officially reached the top of the charts, she tweeted this:
