Now she is gracing the covers of top magazines, the most recent being the November issue of the New York Magazine in which she talked about her meteoric rise, stripping, feminism, marriage plans and more.
Her new video is an ode to Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow", and features Daniels, who calls herself "The Rap Mom", in the vehicle with her children, singing about grocery store antics, schoolwork, and bedtime. "N--as hustle, and I hustle n--as".
This isn't the first time Cardi has spoken out about feminism in a similar way.
Without holding back, Cardi even addresses her upcoming wedding to Offset. "Sometimes I get a little discouraged, and I wonder how it is going to be next year, but it seems like everybody already predicting where I'm gonna be next year, and it's just like fucking farther than my asshole".
Daniels is working on such future projects as amusing parenting skits, and she's even writing her own rap songs for parents.
Cardi B also told about how she became a stripper. "And my bridesmaids are gonna be wearing suits, what's good".
This has truly been a historic year in the glow up of Cardi B, with "Bodak Yellow" enjoying it's 18th week on the Billboard Hot 100. But no matter how successful you are, there will always be haters.
On Critics: "I hate that people are trying to make excuses as to why it went No. 1. You know why?" Cardi says. "Stop trying to discredit it".
This comes shortly after Cardi vowed to set a "better example" to her fans.
On Meeting J.Lo & Beyoncé: "I just kept acting like a fucking weirdo, but I think [J.Lo] understands". I wanna hear myself everywhere.
Finally, Cardi's success now means she has the money to do things she never thought possible before. She puts it best when she says: "God makes everybody flawless, but sometimes He fucks up".
The New York Magazine story reveals that she's thinking about getting a nose job before the year is up. If a guy asks you if you want something, don't be shy and be like, 'No ...' Say yes.
