Belcalis Almánzar, better known by her stage name Cardi B, became a true hip hop star in the United States in a short time and today amasses a fortune valued at $24 million (net worth) according to the specialized site Celebrity Net Worth.
But things were not easy for the celebrity. The American rapper, songwriter, and actress was raised in the Bronx and was part of different street gangs during turbulent adolescence in which she even suffered gender violence. At 19 she got a job as a stripper and underwent multiple plastic surgeries in order to get better tips at the club.
It was only in 2015 that he became famous after starring in the sixth season of the Love & Hip Hop: New York program.
The big lucky break came in 2017 when he signed a contract with Atlantic Records, whose executives were impressed with his independent productions. That year she debuted with “Bodak Yellow” which became a hit, reaching number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.
Cardi’s successes continued with “No Limit”, “MotorSport” and “Finesse” that entered the top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100.
