Cardi B is undoubtedly one of the hardest working women in hip-hop right now. Not only is the “Bodak Yellow” rapper booked to perform all over the country (with barely any days off), she’s also stacked her money and has made smart investments to ensure her bank account has plenty of cushion. Translation: everyone needs to stop clocking what she spends her money on.
This week, Cardi surprised her fiancé Offset with some pricey birthday gifts: a Rolls Royce Wraith (valued at $300,000) and a diamond encrusted watch. Check out this video of Offset flossing his new birthday toys.
Even though the overwhelming majority of fans are proud of Cardi B’s glow up, some seem to think she needs to slow her roll when it comes to spending.
why is cardi b spending that much $ on anything… like she ain’t worth enough to be spending that much dough on something that depreciates in value

Is anybody talking to Cardi B about being fiscally responsible? Like you had ONE #1 hit and a couple of features, your album not even out. Should you really be spending half a mill on a car for a nigga you not legally married to?

Cardi B has money , but not drop $300K+ on a custom car that is deprecating in value everyday money. we can argue if you want.

Just a couple of months ago, comedienne Sommore offered some unsolicited advice to the up-and-coming rapper, saying “Just ’cause you busy don’t mean your [sic] winning…. You better be reading ya paper work! #Chandelierovahere.”
Well folks, Cardi would like you to know her bank account is doing just fine. “In the month of December I only have 3 days off,” she wrote on Instagram. “I work too hard that’s why I spend my money how I want too spend it…and because financial adviser say I can. Don’t clock my pockets.”
She then checked one of her followers on Twitter who suggested she fall back on the high-priced gifts.

This isn’t the first time Cardi has had to address people criticizing celebrities about what they spend their money on. She also confirms that she’s made sure that financial future is in tip-top shape (but y’all don’t need to know where she’s invested her bread.)
Haters, you’ve been dismissed!
Success comes at a cost! When Cardi B reveals that her hectic schedule doesn’t allow her time to reconnect with her family, Hennessy volunteers to go on tour with her sister.
