The come up is real: Cardi B has been nominated for two BET awards, Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, following years of hustle first as a stripper and then as a rapper and social media and reality TV personality.
Cardi took to Twitter to share her excitement, dancing around in a towel and shower cap and saying, "Suck my dick!" Yes.
