We All Knew Cardi B Was a Hustler, But She Proved it By Beating Jay-Z and Diddy at the 2017 BET 'Hip Hop Awards'

Would you expect anything less?

Our regular schmegular girl from the Bronx has been on her grind, making history, securing her checks, and generally making the world fall in love with her. It's no secret that Cardi B is out here living her best life, but at last night's BET Hip Hop Awards, Cardi won not one, not two, but three awards including the coveted Hustler of the Year. Y'all, Miss Cardi beat out Chance the Rapper, Diddy, DJ Khaled, Jay-Z, and Kendrick Lamar.

Cardi acknowledged that she has definitely worked hard to be called Hustler of the Year, and we'd have to agree. She thanks her family friends, and labels for their support in signature Cardi style. "You know, a lot of labels, they wanted to sign me, but you gave me that cheeeeeeeeeeck," she sings, shouting out Atlantic and KSR.

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper also won Best New Artist and Single of the Year, making her the talk of the night.

Y'all, when I say that I am so proud of Cardi for her major glow up, I'm not even kidding. I could cry talking about it.


When she's done, she reminds us that the "regular degular schmegular" girl still lives on: "Who's gonna help me get down these stairs? Because, you know, this know what I'm saying?"

Congratulations, Cardi B! Keep on hustlin'!
