- cardi b once again took to twitter to defend her best rap album grammy win for her debut album, invasion of privacy. she is the first woman to ever win the award.
- [on struggles during the recording process] "i did it all while i was pregnant, throwing up, drowsy, terrible colds and in a rush to finish it so i can start doing music videos before i started showing," she wrote. "i'd spend 24 hours for months sleeping on a couch with my pregnant depressed ass in a studio."
- cardi's now husband, offset, was the one to secure features for her project behind the scenes, as she had just split with her longtime manager, and says she didn't have much of a relationship with anyone at atlantic records. "trust me, a lot of artists said no, or charging six figures for a feature."
- cardi found solace in a quote nipsey hussle used to congratulate her on the victory, "when it's your time, it's your time." words she now uses when giving advice to emerging acts. "now, when i speak to upcoming artist or people who ask me for advice, i tell them the same thing...so when i won a grammy for it, i didn’t have no words to say, but when i went home, i started reminiscing on what i went thru during that period...i was like yea bitch you deserve this shit! and until this day my shit still charting."

I wasn’t even thinking of winning or even the Grammies. All I can think about was ...everybody is disappointed in me,am I still going to have a career after this baby ? Is this album going to make me or break me ? I need to finish before I start showing .— iamcardib (@iamcardib) August 28, 2019
All while I just separated from my long time manager.I had to get my husband to talk to my label cause I never had a relationship with them so we all came together to relocate me to Atlanta and Miami to finish my album before my stomach start showing.— iamcardib (@iamcardib) August 28, 2019
