Raised In The Bronx

Cardi B was born Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar in 1992 and grew up in The Bronx in New York City.

Focusing On The Music

Cardi eventually quit Love & Hip Hop to focus on her true passion: music. She released two mixtapes at that time, but it was her smash hit “Bodak Yellow” that would put her on the map. Now the rapper has released her #1 debut album, Invasion of Privacy, and has collaborated with multiple top artists like Migos, Bruno Mars, and Jennifer Lopez. It’s certainly an incredible journey from her childhood in the Bronx!
