You must have been living under a rock if you missed all the headlines about Blue Ivy giving her grandmama AKA Tina Knowles-Lawson a makeover. It was a cute story.
Well, the narrative Queen, AKA Keyser Soze of Hip Hop, doesn't miss a headline. I could be reaching, but I don't think so. Just watch the video.
I hope when I call Cardi B the Keyser Soze of Hip Hop, it doesn't go over y'all heads. Soze is a character in the classic movie "The Usual Suspects." Keyser Soze presented himself as a dummy but was really a ruthless crimelord. Even though I believe Ole Girl plays into her "dummy" image when needed, the part that applies to Cardi is what happens at the end of the movie.
Keyser, who people thought was a dumb and crippled petty con artist named Verbal Kint, was being
questioned by a detective. Oh, Verbal was singing like a canary. He was giving out all this information on what he knew about a crime crew, etc. Well, after "Verbal Kint" left, the detective started going over Kint's story. He realized that everything said to him was related to something in the office. Like Verbal would take a name he saw on a coffee mug and put it with something he saw on the detectives' bulletin board to weave together a story.
The point is, that is what I noticed Cardi B does. She has been doing it since Bodak Yellow. She nibbles off narratives that have been successful for other people.
She saw those big publications wrote about Blue Ivy giving Tina Knowles-Lawson a makeover, and now she has a video up of Kulture doing her makeup. I do not think it's a coincidence. This is the perfect story for publications, not-so-much blogs, but publications that cater to a white audience to run with.
What's funny is that with Ole Girl, sometimes publications will skip over these noticeable "write about me" moments she posts, However, the minute something negative comes up about her, they will dig these moments up as if they are new stories.
Cardi is definitely giving Drake a run for his money.
