In other not so happy news for Cardi B is being suded for $5 million for using a picture's model on the cover if her mixtape, "Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 1.". Kevin Brophy is the man taking the Bronx rapper to court who allegedly appears on the graphic image that shows a guy without a shirt with a particular tattoon on his back performing oral sex on Cardi B. According to TMZ, Brophy says it's him and found out about it when a friend asked him about it. The site also got a hold of the court documents where it sates that Brophy's son saw the photo and now keeps bringing it up.

Cardi B recently made history with "Bodak Yellow" as the first female rapper to top the Hot 100 Billboard music chart in 19 years and the first rapper of Dominican descent to ever reach that place in the chart. The previous record holder was Lauryn Hill, who topped the chart with no other billed artist. Cardi B, from the Bronx, had the number two spot last week and was able to overtake and dethrone "Look What You Made Me Do" by Taylor Swift. The Dominican rapper even threw a little shade at the former queen when she celebrated her number one spot by singing the chorus of the tune she toppled.

Cardi B, born Belcalis Almanzar to a Dominican father and Trinidadian mother, grew up in the South Bronx. She is only the fifth female rapper to top the Hot 100 after Lil' Kim who was featured on "Lady Marmalade," Shawnna who collaborated with Ludacris on "Stand Up," Iggy Azalea who led with "Fancy" along with Charli XCX. According to Billboard, Cardi B is also the first female solo artist to lead the Hot 100 list with no featured artist since Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass."

Fans have tried to pit Nicki Minaj and Cardi B against each other in the past. “You know this bitch. She never fucking liked me. And all of a sudden she wants to be friends with me. No, bitch. I still don’t like you, bitch,” Cardi B said during a presentation. Fuel was added to the fire when a verse on Minaj's "No Flag" was thought to be a response to the Dominican: "“Lil’ bitch I heard these labels tryna make another me/ Everything you getting little hoe is cause of me." Cardi has only replied saying: "This is the thing – you know, people don’t understand that I got beef with ten other b****s in the hood, and I still be in the hood.”
