Cardi B’s career is on an upward swing. The rapper is nominated for 21 Billboard awards and took home a Grammy award for Best Rap Album for her EP “Invasion of Privacy" earlier in the year. Her chart-topping hit “Bodak Yellow” shot her to fame in the music scene and has given her singing career a boost in the process.

Beyond a burgeoning music career, Cardi B is trying her chops at acting with a role alongside Jennifer Lopez in the upcoming film “Hustlers.” Here, she will portray a stripper that hustles men for money, a role the actress may have been born to play based on her true-life experience as an exotic dancer.

Cardi B was born in The Bronx with a birth name of Belcalis Almanzar. She has a net worth of an estimated $8 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

The 26-year-old is also a mother to Kulture Kiari Cephus, a daughter she gave birth to in June. She is romantically linked to rapper Offset, who is the father of Kulture.

The rapper turned actress was previously known for her role in Love & Hip Hop - a VH1 reality series.
