Opinion: What Cardi B's Massive Co-Sign Really Means

Oprah Winfrey is a Cardi B fan, and...that's not a bad thing.

By Chuck "Jigsaw" Creekmur

(AllHipHop Opinion) Oprah Winfrey is now a Cardi B fan. Think about that for a few.

I, for one, ain't mad. Other people - not so much. Cardi is a phenom that may soon be inescapable, regardless of your feelings. I like her a lot, in a large part because I met her. I found her to be extremely cool and humble. At this point, she had just started her trek to rap fame, acclaim and controversy.

Fact is, the Bronx native's story is compelling and universal. She is the consummate underdog. Oprah knows that. The billionaire queen of media (and a lot more) ain't stupid by ANY stretch of the imagination. A few years ago, this would have been a ABERRATION from anything redeeming, feminist and diametrically opposed to O's brand.

Once upon a time, Oprah’s stance on Hip-Hop was that of extreme disdain. It was a “thing,” as they say. In the past few years, Hip-Hop has matured, and to some extent so has Oprah. Its 2018. Things change. People change.

Cardi is here, but she’ll change too. Give it some time.

Let me go listen to Invasion of Privacy.

Face it Chuck, You are a bandwagoner man. You jump on any "b.s "trend" going". Dont you have a daughter? You really cosign to the vulgar, foul-mouthed, bizarre, nasty statements this troll makes? She used sex to make it, has a foul mentality and she is appropriating REAL black women by imitating their songs in that foul accent. I see this is Cardi week and the industry is struggling so hard they have to get in bed together to stay relevant. I see that BUT hip hop isn't going for it. This chick is bad for the culture but good for YOUR business of inside trading. THIS whole Cardi B hype you are on will come back to haunt you one day. You always co-sign b.s and it is in print. LMAO Besides that, her whole album was cut and pasted from a bunch of old records, phrases and styles, she is the new Iggy Azalea. I mean you went from Wakanda stand up, Black Panther this, Black Panther that, to....A female with her full butthole exposed on the internet got you dripping for her You lame Chuck, you lame.

Nah Chuck, you fake yo. Hip Hop is dying under you. Keep it real and stop following trends all over the place. You have lost all sense of respect for the culture homey. You are not a solution to black peoples problems, YOU are part of the problem. You aren't selling out, You really believe the mess you say., and that is sad yo.

We have no morals, We have no values, and YOU are caught up in the hype that exploits the ignorance that plagues our society. For you and Oprah to co-sign this mess means we are in real trouble my man. This girl is just nasty, period. She lowers the standards of women to "All Women Are Hoes". And we wonder why young men disrespect our women? Why other races see us as clowns and objects of entertainment and selfish desire? We have no respect for ourselves or our children. It's cool to compare the heroes of Black Panther to the hero Cardi B. You can either be a strong superhero or a nasty mouth naked sex exploiting half talent and become equally effective and successful in your world Chuck. Hip Hop says no.

Hey Chuck, all of these comments about you are absolutely correct. But frankly, I could deal with that, if you would even put just a little bit of effort into your business. This site is a joke. EVERYTHING is atrociously written. The wrong words are used, the grammar is terrible, it's like everything is written by a child. There's a pride a man can take in owning a business, growing it and building something great. The site is garbage and that's not an opinion, it's an absolute fact. You post about the same seven artists and the rest of the content is horribly written columns by you and ridiculous contributions from Illseed. I used to thoroughly enjoy the site and now I'm embarrassed for you. You're eating, although at this point it's more likely that you're trying to eat, off a site that doesn't deliver any content worth reading. I would tell you to step your game up but you are a lost cause. If anybody wants to read elementary articles that are horribly written then Allhiphop is the place to go. I have no ill feelings towards you. I just believe it's time for you to step away. Sell the site completely and maybe somebody will put in the effort necessary to make a business work. You're failing bro, seriously.

Cardi B is a horrible look for Black and Brown women in this country. White folks and all the people making money off of her are laughing at her and un-woke Black folk are lapping the ignorance up and not realizing how the media is further conditioning them and normalizing ignorance and stupidity. Oprah co-signing this mess is no surprise, as she is definitely not a friend to black folks and a great tool for white folks, kinda like the slave that carries out the master's plan without the master saying a word. And Cardi is also a horrible look for female MC's, as she brings no substance to the table; why can't Rapsody get the same attention and love?

After reading these comments I guess I'm not alone in my sentiments. Y'all said enough about the image this is conveying. I'm just gone endorse the feelings. Somebody call Nas "Hip Hop is having another heart attack"

Oprah has yet to co-sign this broad. Whomever runs the ig page of Oprah's magazine simply captioned a picture of Oprah wearing headphones saying "listening to that new Cardi b album" lool..the words did not come from Oprah herself. Spewing lies for what?
