Rapper Cardi B has deactivated her Instagram account after defending her Grammy Award win.
The “Money” hitmaker won Best Rap Album prize at Sunday’s (10.02.19) ceremony for her debut album ‘Invasion of Privacy’, and after the show, she took to social media to defend her win when some people claimed other nominees were more deserving of the prestigious award.
Shortly after posting her rant as earlier reported by The Sauce, in which she highlighted the extensive work that went into creating her album, the 26-year-old rapper made the decision to deactivate her account entirely.
Cardi originally posted two rants in defense of her win, one of which was deleted before she took down her whole account, and was an expletive-filled video in which she said she was “sick” of being dragged down. She said in the now-deleted clip: I’ve been taking a lot of s**t today. I’m seeing a lot of bulls**t today and I saw a lot of s**t last night, and I’m sick of this s**t. I work hard for my motherf***ing album.
“I remember last year when I didn’t win for “Bodak Yellow” and everybody was like, ‘Cardi got snubbed.’ Now, this year’s a f***ing problem?! My album went two-time platinum, my n****, and every chart that there was, my album was always Top 10. Number one album, as well.”
After deleting the video, the “I Like It” rapper then posted a photo caption in which she explained how hard she had worked on her record.
As previously reported by The Sauce, Cardi B made Grammy history win her win, she is the first female solo act to win the award for Best Rap Album. The other rappers nominated for the award included Nipsey Hussle, Pusha T, Travis Scott, and the late Mac Miller.
Last week, as reported by The Sauce recovering singer Demi Lovato quit social networking site Twitter after she was bashed for making a joke about rapper 21 Savage’s arrest by immigration services.
