Cardi B’s has just gifted a brand new house to her mum. The achievement, which the rapper considered as a “childhood dream” she has had for years.
The 26-year-old rapper said it was the “happiest day of my life” as she gave fans a video tour of the property in her home state of New York.
ardi B, who was brought up in the Bronx, admitted she was “emotional” and had been crying as she walked fans through the mansion, which features its own gym.
“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.”
