What is Cardi B’s net worth? We have some answers. Born in 1992 as Belcalis Almanzar in The Bronx, New York, Cardi B had an interesting life before her fame. As a teenager, she was part of the Bloods gang, but also attended Renaissance High School For Musical Theater & Technology. She grew up in a rough neighborhood but wanted a better life for herself and her family.
After high school, she decided to become a stripper to escape poverty and an abusive relationship, “It really saved me from a lot of things,” she admitted. During this time, she started posting online and became an internet celebrity for her bizarre attitude and honesty about the life of a stripper. From 2015 to 2017, she was a regular cast member on the VH1 reality television series Love & Hip Hop: New York.
Even though she was a star on the show, she decided to give it up in 2017 to pursue music full time, which turned out to be an extremely smart decision. After releasing two mixtapes in 2017, she landed her first major record deal with Atlantic Records. In August 2017, Cardi’s debut single ‘Bodak Yellow’ was released and became a smash hit. It peaked at number one on the Billboard 100 and went triple platinum. Later in the year, she received two Grammy nominations for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song. She was well on her way to becoming a household name like Beyonce.
And then on April 6, 2018, Cardi released her debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy. It debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 and became double platinum. She had five singles on the album, including ‘Bodak Yellow,’ ‘Bartier Cardi’ and ‘I Like It.’ Needless to say, Cardi B’s net worth was growing.
In just one year, Cardi B was known across the country and started appearing on every late night talk show imaginable. She even teamed up with Pepsi for two TV commercials aired during the Super Bowl. In 2018, Cardi was able to buy her mother the house of her dreams. She posted about the incredible experience of on her social media.
Unfortunately, in March of 2019, Cardi faced some backlash after an old Instagram live video of her resurfaced. In the video, Cardi admitted to drugging and robbing men during her days as a stripper. Obviously, people were outraged, but she responded to the controversy by saying it was necessary to her survival at the time. It was poor timing for Cardi as it was just announced she was set to star in a feature film with Jennifer Lopez.
As it stands now, Cardi’s net worth is around $8 million, which is pretty incredible because her net worth in 2016 was a mere $400,000.
