Cardi B responded to a fan who suggested the Bronx-bred rapper has a current net worth of $40 million, and she not only corrected them but reminded them how fragile her finances are.
The eager fan posted Cardi’s estimated net worth on Twitter alongside a Gif of a man shaking his head. Cardi swooped in to respond and pointed out that while her net worth is much higher, it could all be gone in a second.
“I’m worth more then that and guess what ? If I don’t save , work and budget I could lose it too!” Cardi responded. “What makes you think that no matter how much money you got you can’t lose it all if you don’t manage your money correctly. I too have bills, responsibilities and people I have to help.”
She then tweeted out a separate reminder: “We going through a recession...merry christmas.”
Cardi B is just the latest rapper to correct the internet’s net worth theories. Lil Durk took to Twitter in January to push back against reports that he was worth $3 million, and similarly to the “WAP” rapper said his finances were much more lucrative.
“They got my net worth 3 million. Who ever did that failed math class because I got that in Richards only,” the rapper captioned a photo on Instagram, implying his collection of Richard Millie watches is worth that alone.
During a recent interview with Complex, Lil Baby also scoffed at Google’s net worth estimations, which had him pegged at $5 million, and which he had previously criticized on his new album It’s Only Me. While he wouldn’t give Speedy Mormon a correct answer as to how much he’s worth, Baby said he plans to make even more money moving forward.
“Billionaire is like the max right now for anybody in the world,” Baby said. “So, by the time I’m trying to get a billion if they start being trillionaire, I’m sure I’m gonna want to start being a trillionaire. I’m shooting for the max.”
