Rolling Stone just dropped a stunning cover featuring Offset from Migos and Cardi B. The two have been hip-hop royalty this past year and have undoubtedly dominated the charts together.

 

Cardi B, who is planning her baby shower, says, "My baby shower's not starting at no 5:00. My shit is going to start at 9 p.m. because that's how I celebrate, that's how Caribbean people celebrate."

 

Shes never going to be the typical mom.

A lot of successful women have kids, and a lot of successful artists have kids, but not at the peak of their career. It was like, 'You can't do this. This might f*ck up your career.'

It wasn't always sunshine and baby joy. Offset and Cardi have had a rough time. Even though they seemed to have the ultimate hip-hop romance with Offset proposing to Cardi in front of a huge crowd, allegations soon surfaced. He was accused of cheating, but Cardi stood by him.

 

Speaking on the cheating scandal, the strong female rapper said, "People want to make fun of me, saying I'm the fourth baby mom. I know I'm not having a baby with a shitty-ass man."

 

Offset adds, "We really love each other. She's real. I wanted real. I also wanted successful."

 

The Migos member also says more men shouldn't be afraid of their partners success, explaining, "Guys, fellas! You'll lose your wife trying to stop them from being the best they can."

 

Once Cardi B took a pregnancy test, she FaceTimed Offset who was elated by the news, but she deciding to keep it a secret as she was worried about her career.

 

"A lot of successful women have kids, and a lot of successful artists have kids, but not at the peak of their career," she says. "It was like, 'You can't do this. This might f--k up your career.' "

Speaking on other issues, Cardi says she is disgusted by President Donald Trump.

 

"Every artist has explained how harmful he is. He has made divisions in this country he almost made a crazy civil war between the blacks and the whites," she says. "He has proven himself to be a madman so many times, and proven himself to be disrespectful to women, and that still hasn't gotten him impeached."

 

The "Bodak Yellow" artist also touched on how she plans to raise her daughter.

 

"You have a choice. I could maintain you. I could spoil you if you go to college. Or if you want to be independent, go ahead," Cardi says. "When you a teenager and you 18, 19, you can't get no job that pays you more than $200 a week."

 

"You want to become a stripper? 'Cause I became a stripper 'cause I ain't have no choice," she continues. "You gonna be getting your ass smacked by n**gas that have less money than you, less of an education than you, but they going to feel like they better than you because they feel like you need them. You want to live like that? That's how I'm going to talk to my kid."
