Cardi B considers it as an insult to be paid less than white colleagues in the industry

From releasing hit after hit to influencing her millions of followers with her eye-catching glam, the 28-year-old superstar is constantly raising the bar. But despite her popularity in music and fashion, the rapper recently opened up about the "prejudice" she's felt in both industries. Speaking to Mariah Carey for Interview magazine's March issue, Cardi detailed her experiences, explaining, "I have been involved in endorsement deals, and then I found out that certain white people got more money for their deals from the same company," she shared. "When you're not paying me what you're paying these other people, why is that? It's kind of insulting." She noted that "hip-hop is a big influence" on the fashion industry. "And yet, Black artists have the hardest time getting pulls from designers and the hardest time getting seats at their fashion shows." Just four months ago, she defended her collection of designer handbags – after a tweet went viral for criticising Black women for purchasing luxury items, horribly suggesting they "depreciate the value of a Hermés bag."
