Rich and Cheap
Known for being brutally honest, Cardi B never holds her tongue. She constantly shares and vents happenings from her everyday life on social media, letting fans know that she’s still a “regular, degular, shmegular girl from the Bronx.”
Cardi recently ran to the internet to vent about a hairstylist who blatantly overcharged her. After flat ironing her weave, Cardi says the stylist charged her $400. While no one knows if the star paid the steep price, fans know that Cardi didn’t like the attempt to “play” her.
She didn’t say the stylist’s name or tag her in the post, but Cardi did give her a piece of her mind, saying, “I don’t really like when people try to finesse me. Like, don’t ever try to finesse me.” The “Lick” rapper proceeded to say that even though she did her hair herself the day before, she needed it pressed. So, she called the stylist, who Cardi says only lives 10 minutes away from her.
Slacking on the Job
“Shorty just flat ironed my hair… didn’t glue my front on, didn’t style it. All she did was press my hair with a flat iron,” Cardi said in the clip. “Why shorty charged me 400 dollars to flat iron my hair?”
The former Love & Hip Hop: New York star ended the video saying that she’s never the type to slam someone’s work, but the hairdresser “didn’t even did work.”
“Why are you charging me $400 to flat iron my hair? Are you dumb, or do you think I’m dumb?” Cardi said with a shrug and smile. “Don’t try… I hate that shit. Ni–as better stop that s–t. Don’t think because I’m on that ‘Bodak Yellow’ s–t… Nah, I’m still cheap b–ch. And you not gonna play me.”
Quick to vent
Knowing that she’s good for calling others out, why do people mess with Cardi B? The rapper has blasted people on stage and on social media countless times. The hair stylist, who ever she is, probably should have watched the video of Cardi blasting a promotor before she pulled that stunt.
Earlier this month, the New York native traveled down south to New Orleans to perform at the city’s Studio 223. When she made it to the Big Easy though, her experience wasn’t great. Shortly before the show, the “Hectic” rapper found out that she was not getting paid.
Highly-pissed, she got on stage only out of love for her fans. Before performing two songs pro bono, she gave the person responsible for not paying her something to think about:
“I paid my DJ, I paid my hair stylist, I paid my makeup artist, I paid for this outfit, and I paid my dancers, and I paid my DJ. So, if the promotor don’t wanna f–king pay me, then b–ch you think I’m going to come inside? No. I really appreciate that y’ll came out, but ion like when ni–as try to play me. I’m about my bread. […] And this club is packed, so I don’t wanna hear that ni–as didn’t get there f–king money.”
The New Orleans’ promotor, known as Stank, attempted to explain the situation in a lengthy Instagram post, but Cardi fans weren’t having it. Especially after Stank’s partner posted incriminating receipts on Twitter, Bardi Gang was not believing anything Stank had to say.
