How Cardi B Became One Of The Most Successful Female Rappers Who Have Multiple Awards (photos)

Cardi B, like many other famous musicians, has a fascinating tale about how she rose to prominence in the music industry and how she achieved success. 

Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar was born on October 11, 1992, and comes from a mixed-race family; her father is Dominican and her mother is Afro-Trinidadian. She has one brother, who is also Dominican. The lovely lady was not born wealthy; in order to provide for herself and fund her education, she worked at a variety of different occupations. She was forced to work as a stripper in nightclubs at some time in her life in order to avoid poverty. It was as an actress that she made her entry into the entertainment industry in 2015, not as a musician as been the case previously. Several episodes of the reality television show "Love & Hip Hop: New York" included her as a guest star. 

After a period of time spent working as an actress, she made the decision to discontinue her acting career in order to concentrate on her music career. When she collaborated with Shaggy on the release of the remix of the song "Boom Boom," she made her professional debut in the music industry in 2015. In the years since she made her debut in the music industry, she has released a number of successful singles that have reached the top of various music charts thanks to her aggressive flow and frank lyrics. Her track "Bodak Yellow" debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, marking her the first female rapper to achieve this feat with a solo single since 1998, according to Billboard. 

Aside from that, she has broken countless records in the music industry and has received numerous music accolades. In accordance with Wikipedia, the following is a snapshot of her most recent award records: 

Today, she is widely regarded as one of the most successful female rappers in the world, and she is also regarded as Nicki Minaj's most direct competitor in terms of commercial success.
