Last year, she was named Billboard's Woman of the Year. After receiving the title, Cardi told the outlet, "I don't want to be like, 'Oh, female artists, we have it hard,' but we do f—ing be having it mad hard!"
"I could be bumping to one bitch's music, and the next day, people are telling you, 'Oh, this girl is better than Cardi. She's gonna end Cardi,'" she explained of some music listeners who attempt to pin female artists against each other, as if there's room for just one successful woman in the rap genre at a time. "I hate that y'all do that. Why do you want me to argue and not like this girl?"
