For those who doubt that Cardi B writes her own songs, the “Please Me” rapper begs to differ.
In fact, she took to social media on Thursday to respond to a Twitter user who accused her of hiring “teams of writers” and wondering how Cardi managed to make it onto Billboard‘s Top 100 Songwriters of 2018 list.
Cardi fired back with an NSFW tweet to set the record straight as only she can.
“Because I do write a lot of my s**t that’s the thing,” she wrote.
Earlier this year, the 26-year-old rapper addressed accusations that she used rapper Pardison Fontaine as a ghostwriter during an interview with “The Breakfast Club”.
“Pardison is not a ghostwriter, he’s a co-writer,” she explained. “I credit him in all the songs that he been in. I even gave him a shoutout at the iHeart Radio Awards. The ‘Be Careful’ song — I heard the song and was like, ‘I like this.’ It didn’t have a hook or nothing. I just liked that verse and I was like, ‘I want this song for me.’ I liked what it was saying, I liked this beat and we just worked on it. I’m putting my people on. They making money. I ain’t pay him off and hide him.”
