In an interview with Billboard 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, talked about how Cardi B has achieved the “American dream.”
“When Cardi B came, I thought she was dope. She’s from the bottom,” said 50. “(Going) from that and actually making a hit record and turning into who she did? I don’t know why anybody wouldn’t like to see that. It felt like she got everything – married, the baby – it came really fast. That’s the American dream right there.”
50 touched on the tension between Cardi and Nicki saying, “When her and Nicki clash, I go, ‘Oh, s**t, it’s going to be interesting to watch how it plays out.’ Lyrically, I won’t say anything competitively about the two of them, but I love Nicki.”
He continued, “I don’t have anything against Cardi. I think anyone who comes now, she is going to check their temperature. Nicki is going to check if this b**ch is friendly or looking to take over the s**t.”
