Cardi B emerged out of nowhere with her break-out hit Bodak Yellow last summer and now it seems like she is planning on breaking Hollywood as reports claim the 25-year-old has landed her first movie deal.
Could Cardi B be following in the footsteps of rappers like Queen Latifah and forge a successful big screen career?
Whatever happens, the artist will soon be making the giant leap from reality TV to the big screen.
It’s only been a year since Cardi fans mourned her departure from reality TV show Love & Hip-Hop New York to focus on her music and now, according to TMZ, the Bartier Cardi rapper will begin filming in March.
No further details have surfaced about what type of movie it is or who else will star in the film but earlier this month, Cardi posted a message on her Instagram story teasing that something exciting is on the horizon for her.
‘My biggest dream might come true this month or next month,’ she wrote. ‘Crossing fingers… I talked about this a lot in interviews.’
Cardi also landed a role on BET’s now-defunct TV drama Being Mary Jane last year in the role of Mercedes.
TMZ also reports that because Cardi had to turn down a few gigs to start filming, the rapper could be making a pretty penny for her upcoming movie role.
The official character description reads that she is a ’round-the-way beauty with a big weave, big boobs and a big booty to match her oversized, ratchet personality.’
Sounds like Cardi, huh?
This isn’t the only good news that Cardi has to celebrate this week as she smashed a record previously held by Beyonce, making her the third act – and first woman – with five of the top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in a single week since the list began in 1958.
Although things seem to be going pretty swimmingly in the break-out star’s career, her love life is looking a tad rocky.
Cardi, who is engaged to Migos member Offset, suffered some embarrassment after it was alleged he been involved in sex tapes with several different women.
His fiancee later spoke out to tell him he ‘gon’ lose his wife’ if he continues his cheating ways. Seemingly in an effort to make it up to her, he had her name tattooed on his neck.
