Jump to

Her career may only be a couple years old, but Cardi B is steadily on her way to elite multi-millionaire status. Born Belcalis Almanzar, the Bronx native, self-proclaimed “Trap Selena” went from moonlighting as an adult entertainer to Billboard-topping rapper faster than most finish a college degree.
Add several endorsement deals and well, you eclipse a net worth of an estimated $8 million and counting, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Ever hear of the phrase, “A millionaire has more than one job”? Well, Cardi is a prime example of that expression. Let’s break down how she acquired her assets.
Introduced as a “Regular, degular, schmegular girl from the Bronx” Cardi joined VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: New York” in 2015 during season six and quickly rose to fan-favorite status.
Unapologetic and quick with the quips, Cardi’s early proclamation that anyone who had beef with her would have beef with her “foreva” solidified her reputation as one of the franchise’s most entertaining cast members.
While it’s unclear how much she earned as a cast member, it apparently wasn’t enough to keep her as she departed after two seasons to pursue a career in music.
June 16, 2017 would ultimately prove to be the day America was officially introduced to Cardi B.
Atlantic Records, Cardi’s label, released her debut single “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” that day and one month later, “Bodak Yellow” entered the top two of Billboard’s Hot 100 list. In September 2017, “Bodak Yellow” finally claimed the list’s top spot, making her the first female rapper to do so with a solo single since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998.
Since then, Cardi has been headlining music festivals, collaborating with other chart-topping artists and of course, promoting her debut album.  
On January 12, 2016, with a net worth of $400,000, Cardi was added to Celebrity Net Worth. On February 9th, 2017, her net worth increased to $1.5 million, according to the site. In September 2017, AOL estimated her wealth was between $4 and 5 million and just seven months later on September 25th, rose to a reported $8 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. 
On July 10, 2018, Cardi B and husband Offset(from Atlanta-based hip-hop group Migos) welcomed their first child, a daughter named Kulture Kiari Cephus.
Prior to taking maternity leave, Cardi lined up a myriad of endorsement deals that will ultimately see her net worth multiply.
A favorite of social media influencers, FashionNova announced in April that their first design collaboration would be with none other than the global phenomenon.
Fans of the rapper and the clothing brand will have to wait until October to grab pieces of the collection.
Need some statement shoes to go with your new threads? Cardi has you covered. Not only did she announce a partnership with legendary shoe designer Steve Madden, a collection of kicks shortly followed the announcement. If you’ve heard “Bodak Yellow,” then you’ll understand Cardi’s affinity for Christian Louboutin’s “bloody shoes.”
The Parisian mogul’s admiration for Cardi is mutual.
We’ll have to stay tuned for whatever the Bronx lyricist unleashes next; however, given how much she’s been doing in the last few years, it sounds like we won’t be waiting long.
