Charlamagne Tha God Says Cardi B Impacts 'Female Rap' The Way JAY-Z & Drake Did

Charlamagne Tha God has expressed his belief that Cardi B is following the successful blueprints laid out by icons like Jay-Z and Drake in her recent feature run. While fans eagerly await the highly anticipated follow-up to "Invasion of Privacy," Cardi has yet to unveil a single or provide a clear timeline for the release of her upcoming album. 

It remains uncertain whether we will witness its arrival in 2023, but thus far, Cardi has undeniably held her own, delivering impeccable verses alongside emerging female talents who are revolutionizing the hip-hop scene with their scorching tracks.

Looking back at the previous year, Cardi B collaborated with GloRilla on the electrifying track "Tomorrow 2," which swiftly soared to become one of the biggest hits of the year. Furthermore, the Bronx rapper lent her extraordinary skills to Latto's "Put It On The Floor Again," a song that already seems to have a firm grip on the summer of 2023. 

And the excitement continues to mount as Cardi is set to join forces with the buzzing MC Fendi The Rapper on the highly anticipated "Point Me To The Sl**s (Remix)," releasing this Friday. According to Charlamagne Tha God, Cardi B is employing a strategic approach that we have previously witnessed from both Drake and Jay-Z.

During a recent episode of the engaging Its Up There podcast, Charlamagne Tha God and Big Loon delved into the era of influential women dominating the hip-hop genre. 

However, Charlamagne showered Cardi B with credit, acknowledging her pivotal role in opening the gates to this new chapter in the cultural landscape. “Cardi shifted that in the culture,” he explained. “Cardi made it to where you’re the OG, you’re the person who made all the money, you sold all the records but you have no problem putting your arm around that next person.”

Charlamagne added, “Cardi did for female rap what Jay-Z and Drake did, you know what I mean?” he emphasized, explaining how she transformed from an OG, having achieved immense success and record-breaking sales, to someone who warmly embraces and supports the next generation.

The esteemed co-host of The Breakfast Club went on to illustrate Jay-Z's penchant for hopping on buzzing records and propelling them to the pinnacle of success. He pointed out notable examples such as Juvenile's "Ha! (Remix)" and various tracks from the South that received a significant boost from Jay-Z's co-sign. 

Similarly, Charlamagne drew attention to Drake's utilization of his platform to introduce and elevate new artists. “What Drake did was make the record big. I think what Jay did with those co-signs is make the artist big,” he said, “I think Cardi’s doing both. I think Cardi’s helping to make the artist big and she’s helping to make the music big.”

With her unparalleled blend of talent, charisma, and a genuine desire to uplift fellow artists, Cardi B continues to carve her own path while paying homage to the proven strategies employed by hip-hop luminaries. As we eagerly anticipate her forthcoming album and the captivating collaborations it holds, Cardi's impact on the industry stands as a testament to her immense influence, establishing her as a force to be reckoned with in the ever-evolving realm of hip-hop.
