Cardi B made history 

Rap singer Cardi B became the first woman who won the best rap album (Invasion of Privacy).

“I can’t breath. Oh my goodness. The nerves are so bad!” Cardi tried to hold back tears, “Maybe I need start smoking weed.”

“I want to thank my daughter. I’m not just saying thank you because she’s my daughter, it’s because when I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete.”

“We were like, ‘We have to get this album done so I could still do videos while I’m still not showing. And it was very long nights,” she added.

She also thanked Offset for supporting her during the pregnancy: “You husband, thank you. Seriously, he was like, ‘You want to do this album, girl. You’re going to have this baby and we’re going to make this album.”
