Hip Hop Sensation, Cardi B has been named by The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) as its ASCAP Songwriter of the Year.
It was a pleasant surprise for Cardi B, coming for the first time.
Cardi B is also the first female rapper to be so awarded.
Cardi B while accepting the award from ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews said:
“I just want to say I’m very grateful,’
“Sometimes I feel like B ’m not doing too? much because when it comes to female rappers, it’s like you’re never doing too much or they’re always pitting you against another female rapper. People on my team are like ‘Cardi, you’re crazy. You won a Grammy. Cardi, all your songs are charting.” She concluded.
