For starters, the “I Like It” rapper got up close and personal with her fans. During one song of her set, Cardi B was closely flanked and carried by her security personnel as she performed right in front of a crowd of fans. The fans, however, appeared to grab at the artist. In response, she pushed them back with her microphone.
Cardi denied that it was a “fight,” insisting that the scene was being misconstrued. Watch the moment below, and see for yourself.
“It wasn’t NO FIGHT!” Cardi shared in a Tweet. “@itsKenBarbie got the whole thing on their page.” Twitter user @itsKenBarbie shared the full video in a post. (See below)
In addition to her fan interactions, Cardi B surprised her fans by performing her hit song “WAP” with fellow rap superstar Megan Thee Stallion. “WAP” is now a multi-Platinum certified song, and its music video is just as acclaimed. The official music video for the song broke the record for the biggest 24-hour debut of an all-female collaboration on YouTube. And on the Wireless stage, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion brought some of their music video moves to London. Check out a fan video of the performance below.
Additionally, Cardi B’s husband, Offset, also made an appearance during the rapper’s set.
In other news about the New York-hailing artist, she recently responded to criticism over her ranking on Rolling Stone’s 200 Greatest Hip-Hop Albums of All Time list. Her album Invasion of Privacy ranked number 16, but Cardi B said, “I ain’t motherfucking ask for it!”
Never a dull moment with this rap queen, and we love her for it.
