    Lmfao Nicki is definitely getting drunk, poppin pills, getting mad high and cursing out her whole camp tonight.!!!!! She will be releasing Barbie freestyles every single day for the next year, too ??????

      • Meme February 10, 2019

        @fancy bish I’m screaming. Now she knows how lil Kim felt.

      • Lana Del Fan February 11, 2019


        No shade but Lil Kim has a Grammy ???

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian PISCES ??‍♀️Not 37 year old TROLLmine nor TRASHmine February 11, 2019

        @LanaDelFan and she has a number 1 song

      • Tetris February 11, 2019

        Don’t care about the 2 them but tbh Mac Miller deserved it…even pusha T I think her album on a rap/hip hop basis purely (since the Grammys aren’t about sales or mainstream) are better albums that IOP.
        But c’mon like Michelle Obama sais this year was about girl power.

      • MarcusDavis February 11, 2019

        @Lana del fame kim has a grammy but not best rap album. Big difference. Learn to read the small print 1st???

      • Lana Del Fan February 11, 2019

        @marcus Davis

        “Learn to read the small print “

        Why don’t you learn to comprehend a conversation. I said Lil Kim has a Grammy @meme because she said “now She (Nicki) knows how Kim felt”. Nicki doesn’t have a Grammy but Kim does.

        Nice try at a read though.

    • EJai February 10, 2019

      Someone please go do a welfare check on Nicki!!!!!????

    • Lana Del Fan February 11, 2019

      You know how I know this was a purchased award? Notice she was up there for MADE long ranting for her speech, whereas everyone else was cut off after like 45 seconds. Smh well, congrats but I still think it’s effed up how Nicki actually loves her job and cardi said she’s only in it for the money. That’s messed up on so many levels.

      • Your Name February 11, 2019

        You make no sense. She clearly was so nervous and had NO SPEECH prepared. She was clearly so surprised she won but go off with your conspiracy theories

      • Brenda ? February 11, 2019

        A lot of us are at our jobs for the money! Her job pays her bills just like yours pays your bills!!!! She deserves this award she worked hard for it

      • Tazha February 11, 2019

        They all in it for the money df! Cardi deserved it!! Nicki it’s overrated

    • BeyCave Much February 11, 2019

      This doesn’t make sense to me sorry…without taking credit from Cardi how did missy , lil Kim, eve never got this award?
      I remember being obsessed with several of Missy’s albums…she was robbed by this patriarchal society.

    Not a fan but cingrats to her.

  4. Jasmine February 10, 2019

    Nicki shaking in her boots ???

  5. Mark Jones February 10, 2019

    And she still managed to throw a shot … ???

  6. A&R February 10, 2019

    When you take into consideration
    Hits and quality general play tracks
    Album length
    Album rollout
    Album promotion
    Then compare the entire body of work to the overall bodies of work of others,
    She actually deserves it
    God bless her

    • Meme February 10, 2019

      Agreed. Couldn’t agree more. I had to take a step back and really think about. This really was the best rap album last year.

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. February 11, 2019

        @Meme – Lies. You just hate Nicki beyotch.

    • Ohpippy February 10, 2019

      Facts .. she definitely deserved it

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. February 11, 2019

      A&R – The lies you tell.

  7. Whoops ?????‍♀️ February 10, 2019

    Cardi is not the best female rapper ever nor has she made the best female rap album ever, so I don’t put weight on broken records like this, because pure talent and superiority is not why she accomplished this. But lmaoo damn, This has to hurt. Somebody needs to check on Nicki and make sure sis is alright. I genuinely feel bad for her about this. ??

    • Queen Missy ?? February 10, 2019

      Pick up your hurt feelings when you leave.

      • Whoops ?????‍♀️ February 10, 2019

        Ohhhh… kaayyy? ?

      • Kordani February 11, 2019

        @Queen Missy, You got me hollerin’ up in here with that one statement!!…The GOOPERY of the nite!!. LOL!!!.I LIVE!!!..

      • Whoops ?????‍♀️ February 11, 2019

        Lmao, the desperation is blatant.

      • Queen Missy ?? February 11, 2019

        Ma’am the only desperation is doing everything possible to get attention for an inaptly titled album and still find yourself on the losing end. Who the fck beefs with a baby?!? Sis you and Ms Minaj hold this piping hot L and try again minus the theatrics.

      • Whoops ?????‍♀️ February 11, 2019

        Lol what are you talking about??? Lmao, Are you dense?? I am not a Nicki fan and I don’t care whether she comes or goes. I do feel bad for her though. The only person taking an L right now is you sis. Participating in an argument by yourself like a clown ?????. Nicki beefs with a baby but here you are beefing with your keyboard to someone who’s not entertaining you, because you literally just made up an argument. ? You created your own argument and mine. Like a crazy person. And got the nerve to talk about theatrics. Nobody was seething about anything sis. Get some help and learn to read.

  8. Meme February 10, 2019

    You know…I came here to make a negative comment but you know what, good for her. She really worked hard, made bops, created a image, and overall doing her thing. Regardless of how I feel about her talent or lack there of….she deserve his.

    Also P.S. what I appreciate most is that this was a rap album. No pop or mainstream ish, every song was rap.

    • biancacook February 11, 2019

      Straight rap

  9. Monica’s Dove February 10, 2019

    Cardi DID that okurrrrtttt! IOP was a banger from start to finish & she’s a great performer. Congrats Belcalis!!!!!

  10. Jez February 10, 2019

    Well congratulation to Miss Cardi B. I’m not into her album but she works hard for it and being like how the grammies is now a popularity contest she is defenitly most deserving of it.

  11. ny February 10, 2019

    Glorified trash

  12. Keith February 10, 2019

    Im not a Barb, but as long as they keep the top awards away from Cardi i will have some faith in the Grammys…

  13. DanYiel Iman February 10, 2019

    ? 8,986 singles and not a GRAMMY in sight!! Nicki McFraud should feel some type of way because you NEVER WIN WHEN YOU FIGHT DIRTY!! Congratulations Cardi B!! ??????

    • Mhhmm February 11, 2019

      But she winning in the earnings department chile. You should try it too.

  14. Cinnamon. February 11, 2019

    What did nicki win?

    • Fancy BISH February 11, 2019

      A Whammy lol ?

  15. Gee February 11, 2019

    Congratulations to Cardi she has definitely earned her award no matter how everyone feels about her personally you cannot deny that her hard work has paid off.

  16. RiRi February 11, 2019

    I’m glad Childish Gambino won in categories that really counts. “This is America” is talking about issues in the world and deserved to be recognized. Winning best rap album isn’t a sought after category to win in. It’s all about who’s album is most popular. I haven’t listen to her whole album but the songs I’ve heard on the radio wasn’t nothing but club, thot songs.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian PISCES ??‍♀️Not 37 year old TROLLmine nor TRASHmine February 11, 2019

      Did Nicki win anything?

      • RiRi February 11, 2019

        Do I care? I haven’t cared about her having a grammy in all the years she’s been out. Why would I care now? That’s your concern not mine.

  17. MsBrazil February 11, 2019

    Who mad? She won Thats that !! get over it Go on do something with your own life Don’t worry bout her her award nor her man

  18. stan February 11, 2019


  19. RiRi February 11, 2019

    I knew before I clicked on this article the majority of the comments would have Nicki’s name in them. If Cardi y’all girl why can’t y’all just congratulate her and let her have her moment without mentioning Nicki. Nicki knows she’s the better rapper, I doubt she’s stressing this. Like Drake said that award means nothing it’s all opinions. Some of y’all in the comments I’ve seen shitting on Drake. He won a grammy but I bet your opinion still didn’t change about him just cause he won. I still say Nicki’s the better rapper without a #1 or a grammy.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian PISCES ??‍♀️Not 37 year old TROLLmine nor TRASHmine February 11, 2019

      What did nicki wear on the red carpet tonight? Which outfit of Nicks did you like better her performance outfit or the one she wore when she won her award? ??

  20. Beam Me Up Scotty February 11, 2019

    Congrats to Cardi B. I enjoyed her album. She didn’t really have any competition though. It’s almost as if they left certain rap albums out of this category so she would win.

    • RiRi February 11, 2019

      They did, that’s why they didn’t put Drake or Post Malone in that category.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian PISCES ??‍♀️Not 37 year old TROLLmine nor TRASHmine February 11, 2019

      Nicki didn’t have competition for ten years and she still didn’t get a Grammy nor a number 1. Don’t give a compliment when you know you TRULY don’t wanna give it.

      • RiRi February 11, 2019

        Y’all sound stupid keep saying Nicki didn’t have competition for 10 years. Umm there was Dej Loaf, Iggy, Young Ma and them female rappers that used to be in the category with Nicki for best female rapper. Y’all act like there were no other female rappets doing music since Nicki came out. Since we’re on the subject who is Cardi’s competition? Can you answer that? According to y’all Nicki is a washed up has been so she don’t qualify as competition.

      • Beam Me Up Scotty February 11, 2019

        You sound so dumb. Nicki had a lot of competition when she was nominated. This award was for men and women. Why wasn’t Drake or Post Malone’s album up for best rap album?

  21. Ciara joyner February 11, 2019

    I was very happy for her she deserves it and I was happy for the performance

  22. Banks February 11, 2019

    That’s nice, to bad her music is still garbage.

  23. Eileen February 11, 2019

    I’m very happy for her. CONGRATULATIONS

  24. AnonymousTruth February 11, 2019

    Cardi wins an award…. everybody talks about Nicki ? it’s like clockwork.
    This just clarifies people only support Cardi B to tear down Nicki . They ain’t happy she won, they’re happy she won before Nicki.
    Ya’ll sad .
    Congrats to Cardi B – Invasion Of Privacy is a good album ??

    • Queen Missy ?? February 11, 2019

  25. Tata February 11, 2019

  26. Lou-Andrew Rodriguez February 11, 2019

    Just goes to show you don’t even have to write your own raps to win a Grammy. Congrats to her coz her label are doing so much.

  27. Crystal Arrington February 11, 2019

  28. Tarnecia February 11, 2019

    • Tarnecia February 11, 2019

      I think the way she carry herself is unlady like ratchet

  29. Jewel February 11, 2019

    Smh what does Nicki Minaj have to do with this. She was not nominiate. Just be happy for Cardi B and move on. Sheese the majority of you people hear calling up Nicki Minaj are her undercover fans and pressed cauae she was not nominated foh

  30. Malaina Miller February 11, 2019

  36. No Name February 11, 2019

    CARDI is trash trash trash trash

  37. Kpmah11 February 11, 2019

    Just from the comments. It’s clear as daylight Nicki is the trophy. I mean come on. Nicki wasn’t present, nor nominated, but yet, mentioned like she was or like Cardi won against her. She beat out Mac, Nipsey, Travis and Pusha who all had better albums. Think about that or just simply congratulate her and keep it moving. Not that hard. Sheesh….

  38. HOWYOULIKEIT February 11, 2019

    No grammy and no #1 song for the other girl. WOW

  39. Shelonda Moore February 12, 2019

    Congratulations Cardi B!! ?❤️
