In February 2019, Cardi B made history as the first female rapper to win a Grammy for Best Rap Album.

Anyone who figured the road came easy is in for a Twitter lesson courtesy of the “Bodak Yellow” rapper herself.

On Wednesday (August 28), Cardi shared informative insight on what it took to create her debut, Invasion of Privacy.

She began, “On my album I showed different sides of me.From my intro talking about my pass.To living my best life inspiring people. Relationship songs while I was going thru my own relationship drama to shaking ass like Bodak & that ASS .Every song went platinum!”

The “Clout” co-star is far from drinking her own medicine. In December 2018, all 14 of Invasion of Privacy‘s records were certified gold or better and according to her, have since been upgraded to platinum.

And she accomplished all the feats while pregnant with her now one-year-old daughter Kulture.

“I did it all while I was pregnant,” she continued. “Throwing up, drowsy,terrible colds and in a rush to finish it so I can start doing music videos before I started showing .I spend 24 hours for months sleeping on a couch with my pregnant depressed ass in a studio.”

As a relatively new artist, Cardi admits she didn’t understand label politics and actually had Offset not only speak on her behalf to Atlantic Records but according to her, score most of the features for the album.

“I had to get my husband to talk to my label cause I never had a relationship with them so we all came together to relocate me to Atlanta and Miami to finish my album before my stomach start showing,” she recalled. “When i kept seeing the certifications of the songs going gold or platinum I was so excited cause my husband was out here asking everybody for a feature on my behalf so the ones that said yes thank you from the bottom of my heart cause TRUST ME ALOT OF ARTIST SAID NO!”

The multi-platinum album featured cameos from the likes of SZA, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Playboi Carti and even Migos, but she never specified which features her crafty hubby managed to secure.

She also revisited her legendary Grammy night, including words of wisdom from the late Nipsey Hussle she still cherishes to this very moment.

“When I won Nipsey said on a comment to me WHEN IS YOUR TIME IS YOUR TIME!” she exclaimed. “Now when I speak to upcoming artist or people who ask me for advice I tell them the same thing ! WHEN IS YOUR TIME IS YOUR TIME and when it comes don’t let nobody take that special moment away from you !”

Other Invasion of Privacy accolades including a two No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits with “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It,” a BET Award for Album of the Year and multiple streaming records.
