Invasion of Privacy: Cardi B & Migos Collaborate On New Album

From riding brass poles to striking music gold, Cardi B has come a long way. Thanks to a role in VH1's Love & Hip Hop: New York and her rhythmic 2017 hit "Bodak Yellow" the New York rapper is munching on more than saltines these days.

Now, she's released Invasion of Privacy, which showcases her collaborations with Migos, the rap outfit led by her fiancé Kiari Kendrell Cephus, better known as Offset, according to eOnline.

It's not surprising, the single is autobiographical in nature as Cardi's lyrics outline her leap from the strip circuit to the hip-hop market, even boasting about being behind the wheel of her spanking-new Bentley and the diamonds she's now able to afford.

"Drip" isn't the first time that she's hooked up in the studio with Offset. In 2016, the two collaborated on her piece, "Lick," issued late in 2016 off the release Gangsta B*tch Music Vol. 2.

The Dominican-Trinidadian celebrity, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, has been one of rap's biggest curiosities ever since her breakthrough "Bodak Yellow" hit the Billboard 100 summit, the first female rapper to top those charts in 20 years, equaling an achievement first set by Lauryn Hill. Cardi's never been one to shy away from her chequered past, especially with her former occupation.

She also claims to have been a gang member while living in the Bronx, although tenure at Harlem's Renaissance High School For Musical Theater & Technology did provide her some necessary background training for her current occupation.

So far, 2018 has been a lucrative year for Cardi B, who's recorded a duet with Bruno Mars and even starred in a comedic Amazon Alexa ad that ran during the Super Bowl. But her turn in the spotlight hasn't been without conflict. Hardened after years on the streets, she's brutal in retaliating against her social media haters and has had her share of feuds with other celebrities like Amber Rose and Asia.

Which can mean only one thing: Anyone wanting to drag her off her pedestal had better be prepared for a lot of kicking and screaming.
