Cardi B dropped a pretty controversial line at her recent show. But it’s also straight facts.
“2018… If you bitches don’t have a job, if you not in school, get you a fucking sugar daddy.”
Cardi was met with a positive reaction from the crowd, as well as Twitter.

Although some people may raise their eyebrows at what she said, Cardi isn’t new to the idea of making money whatever way you can. If you don’t already know, she grew up poor and escaped poverty by stripping, then made her way to Love and Hip-Hop New York before becoming a rapper.
In an Elle interview titled “Make Your Own Life and Make it Big” early last month, Cardi also mentioned snatching a sugar daddy if you find yourself in financial need.
“Whatever, they say I’m ugly. They say my nose is too big. They say this, this, and that. You wanna know what? I don’t give a fuck, because I’m making money. It don’t matter if you get a degree or sell your pussy. You could even get a motherfucking sugar daddy, I don’t know, but I think you gotta make your own money to truly be happy. Make more than the guys you thought you wanted to be with.”
Hmm. Being a sugar baby hasn’t really been a respected profession, but with successful role models like Cardi making their way to the top of the game, it can really cause you to stop, think and reprioritize.
I’ve read decent to positive stories about being a sugar baby, but really, to each their own. Being a sugar baby is not that different from any other profession that requires you to entertain older gentlemen, even working as a cashier requires you to put a smile on your face and laugh at the right jokes.
What do you think of Cardi’s comment? Do you agree, or did she step over the line this time?
