Cardi B Reveals Why She Almost Quit Rap

(Radio.com) Several years ago, Cardi B was best known as a regular cast member on the VH1 reality show Love & Hip Hop--but her rap ambitions remained unfulfilled.

As Cardi wrote verses, cut tracks and tried to score collaborations, she encountered some major setbacks. In a new Instagram live video, Cardi tells a story about the time a bigger artist cut her from a song because she was "too small," making her consider leaving the hip-hop game altogether.

"I did a verse to somebody's song," Cardi said. "And other artists were on the song as well. I was so excited because I felt like my verse was so poppin'. Then, the artist told me that I couldn't be on the song anymore because one of the artists that was on the song felt like I was too small and they were too big for me to be on the same song with them."

Cardi turned to trusted business associates for a pep talk. "I was just fresh off Love & Hip-Hop and everything, and that s broke my heart," Cardi said. "I felt so bad, because, like couldn't really cheer me up. You know I was with my publicist, Patience, and I was with my managers and it almost teared me up so bad, I was like, 'I don't wanna do this s anymore. I'm just gonna f with this TV s.' But my manager and my publicists, they was like, 'F it. You just gotta keep on going.' And I did, and I did, and I did, and I'm here."

The rest is history: Shortly after, Cardi scored a number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with "Bodak Yellow" and now ranks among rap's most sought-after MCs. Watch Cardi recount her experience here.
