Huge! Cardi B Becomes First Female Rapper To Win ASCAP Songwriter Of The Year

Published: Friday 21st Jun 2019 by Sam

Cardi B continues to rack up the accolades.

That Grape Juice was in the house at the 2019 ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Awards in Los Angeles and witnessed the femcee take home the evening’s top honor – Songwriter Of The Year. 

Beyond serving as a career highlight for the star, it’s saw her make history because she has become the first female rapper to win the coveted honor – which is decided upon by the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.

Elsewhere on the night (which salutes the top Rap, R&B, and Gospel Songs), T.I. took home the first Voice Of The Culture honor, while Motown was bestowed with the Heritage Award.

Peep more pics of a beaming Belcalis after the jump…

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 21, 2019

      @Datredd23.. – No it’s not. She admitted it in SEVERAL interviews. This is a purchased award. Now when artists like Chris Brown do things in the game to FORCE their award you guys can’t get mad because this beyotch just BOUGHT an award.

    Purely purchased award, just like her streams. atlantic spared no expense to turn this clown into a “rapper”.

    • Datredd23 June 21, 2019

      You guys always try and downplay an artists achievement with something never fails

    • Jasmine The Real Deal 💁🏿‍♀️Not 37 year old TRASHmine Da Bi Retards June 21, 2019

    CONGRATULATIONS CARDI !! She has risen to superstardom on the shoulders of those who have framed hip hop greatness. Cardi is a humble talent who didn’t come in the industry trying to self proclaim her greatness or step on the necks of other talented women. She laid bare her pain, her struggle, her fears, challenges & triumphs. Wrap all of that in a debut album laced in bonafide hits, paired with unique, haute couture looks & here we have a STAR! This is still another WIN in the arcenal of accolades & achievements earned by the most celebrated new star of our generation. WE LOVE YOI CARDI & we say your name!! Continue being the people’s champion, as opposed to trying to reign over them as a balloon b*** “Queen”.

    • Kingamongstmen June 21, 2019

      Ive read your comments on several post and I have a ton of respect for you, because they are not biased and straight facts. And you come off quite intelligent as well

    • Buzz Off June 21, 2019

      😂… I really can’t —
      But I have to Agree with everything you’ve said.. cuz if you look at the facts..
      This other female Rapper [No Name mentioned]
      She has proclaimed herself to be this QUEEN OF RAP, and look we’re that has gotten her?
      Even the masses of the Industry don’t wanna have anything to do wiht her anymore..

      Lmfao But Little did she knew that this Gurl Named Cardi B would’ve come along….
      she was comfortable in her littl bubble and it seems to her that only her was gonna be here for a long time and she was THE QUEEN OF RAP.. one thing I’ve learn is that you never Praised yourself for anything! Let people praised you .. All you do is stay humble and you’ll go far, and God will reward you.. See Cardi didn’t came into the rap game looking to be Accepted and as she said many times she just wanna make lotta money and then be gone she’s not here to be called a queen of nothing and now she’s being rewarded by just staying true to herself ..

    I don’t know what’s worse, ASCAP giving her the award or Cardi Gladly accepting it.

    • NickiGarbajisCancelled June 21, 2019

      Reading you Seeth is the best thing tho. Keep it up! 😜

      • Interac June 21, 2019

        The fact that you replied to this comment because you think I’m a barb but I’m actually not. 😂. My comment is about the integrity in songwriting.

      • NickiMinajisCancelled June 21, 2019

        Nicki has no integrity in female rap. 🤪 She stepped on toes to get where she at and ruined the genre. Don’t be mad b!tches playing the game better than her carrying the torch to the next generation.

  9. NickiGarbajisCancelled June 21, 2019

    Yay! Got the Barbz on suicide watch chile ISSA MOVIE!! 🙌🏽 Cardi gon excel higher and higher all the while sharing the spotlight with her other femcee peers because that’s what real rap queens do and has always done. Nicholas’ energy was always off. 💯

  10. Meme June 21, 2019

    Lmfaoooooooooo ☠️☠️☠️

  11. High Price June 21, 2019

    Loooove you Cardi but come on now homie… You damn well this is some BS… smh.

  12. Just Sayin’ June 21, 2019

    This whole Cardi and Nicki this is tired and old like some of u hating azzz hoë$. That just makes this while comment section on this blog lame as azzz. Congrats to Cardi B thou we all know that is a big joke cause she has admitted many times she does not write but keep wining cause we are in an era where we reward mediocrity over actual talent. Congrats to Nicki on a lazy azzz effort your fan base will eat it up like it the next best thing.

  13. Tyty June 21, 2019

    What does a record label gain from purchasing awards or this payola s***!! The label literally gains nothing financially from paying for accolades or chart positions. People should just accept Cardi is popular and keep it pushing do I think she is the best writer or rapper nop!! but she is doing big things and better than that other One trick pony.

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 21, 2019

      @Tyty – WTF does popularity have to do with WRITING? aka having a talent. You moronic Cardi fans get on my nerves with these stupid statements you make JUSTIFYING…STUPIDITY.

  15. Openideas123 June 21, 2019

    The music industry is a joke

  16. Tyler June 21, 2019

    Don’t care if I sound like a hater. This woman is on video multiple times saying she doesn’t care about lyrics or using ghostwriters. Yet she’s awarded over many others that are way more deserving lol it is what it is I guess.

    • Tyler (We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill) June 21, 2019

      Get a new user name. You have 24 hours.

      • Tyler June 21, 2019

        Or what? Clown.

  17. Clarkson June 21, 2019

    If beyonce can do it why cant cardi.

    • Jason June 21, 2019

      You shouldn’t speak on ACTUAL talent.

  18. eric June 21, 2019

    Wow. Who needs education and a life based in reality when you can be awarded for using broken grammar lyrics drenched with p**** talk. There is nothing artistic about her lyrics. Award someone who uses words to make a positive difference in the world, not someone whose words and actions have her looking at prison time. ASCAP is a joke.

    • WIll_xo June 22, 2019

      👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 I love Cardi B but Issa joke

  19. Lou-Andrew Rodriguez June 21, 2019

  22. Stevone Jackson June 21, 2019

    How can you down play someone who has can out and said on video that she doesn’t write wow some of you fool will follow anyone and anything……SheeP

    • biancacook June 21, 2019

      im convinced that yall are so biased that yall just don’t listen. the girl said she writes most of her raps but she has co writers like every other rapper. just like offset wrote apesh#t but jay and bey added to it. thats how it goes. not all these rappers are writing their own music.

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 21, 2019

        @bianca.. – Lies! She said she DOES NOT WRITE! She said that she “believes in giving opportunity..” so get the f^ck out of here. SHE DOES NOT WRITE. She can’t even SPEAK ENGLISH well so how can she write? Same thing with Milli-Vanilli. They couldn’t even SPEAK English well and although THEY could sing THEY did NOT sing those songs.
        #Cardi Ain’t Write A Thing

  23. JaylaTooBad June 21, 2019

    Who gives a f*** she don’t write none of her music she can barely speak proper English so I know she ain’t writing !!!

  24. Ariana Grande June 21, 2019

    Trash

  25. Jason June 21, 2019

    What a a Joke! Missy should’ve had this award decades ago… she actually writes records. ASCAP is tripping. I would’ve been in the audience requesting another drink while mourning the death of talent! 🤣

  26. Lana Del Fan June 21, 2019

    Single handedly bought down the stocks of both the Grammys and ASCAP awards. Smh
