This was Bronx meets Broadway play.

After making historic waves on the Billboard charts and racking up at her very first BET Hip Hop Awards, there was no way rap’s beloved breakout star Cardi B would’ve repaid the people with a lukewarm performance. Your girl went all out by bringing a piece of the Bronx to Miami. I mean, this whole performance was so New York, hipsters are already trying to gentrify it.

Cardi B was bussin’ all kinds of money moves on a set designed to look like a block in the Boogie Down Bronx. No, we’re not talking about cheesy little subway backdrops. Our sis emerged on staged from a bodega with street dudes shooting dice and doing jungle gym pull ups in the distance. As if that weren’t Cardi enough, her army of dancers turned the sexy all the way up, adding high energy to the performance. And can we just talk about how fab she looked? There was absolutely nothing regular or degular about her floor length multi-color mink coat with matching Gucci shades – a look fit for a star!

Now that’s how you prove your talent and put on for your city! Way to go, Cardi B!
