Cardi B remembers her roots.
Hip-hop’s hottest commodity took her “Money Bag” straight to the bank and bought her mother a new house. “It has always been a dream to buy my mother a house,” she shared Monday on Instagram. “Last year I was so thirsty to buy my mom a house but the ones I was interested in weren’t in my price range.”

“I worked and worked and now I’m here! Thank you, everybody, who supported me to make my childhood dreams come true!” Cardi continued. “Buy my momma a house!….. don’t ask me for s**t motherf**kers. I got big girls bills.”
Cardi, 26, offered followers a virtual video tour of her mom’s new home. The two-story property costs well over $600,000 and boasts a built-in gym and basement. The rapper said she started house hunting last year. She could only afford homes in the range of $600,000 at the time and they did not come anywhere close to meeting her expectations.
Cardi predicted this moment in her song “Everything”. In the song’s outro she says, “You know when I was a little girl I used to tell my mom, ‘Hey mom, when I grow up, I’m gonna buy you a house, I’m gonna buy you a car. Until I turned eighteen, it’s like damn, I can’t even get me my own apartment.”
“So, it’s just like, now that I’m in this position I’m gonna, I’m gonna take full advantage of it. Like oh my gosh, I can’t wait till I get to surprise my mom,” she continued. “Like, ‘Hey, I didn’t went to college, but look, look at me mom, look at me now, look, look mom, look, look at your house, This is your house! Not mines, but yours, and I bought it for you!”
Cardi’s net worth is rumoured to be in the ballpark of $8 million in 2018.
