Irv Gotti Explains Why Cardi B's A Bigger Deal Than You Think: "She's A Lone Female Soldier"
Murder Inc. boss Irv Gotti really wants people to acknowledge Cardi B's work grind. The hip-hop mogul has dished out a key fact on the reality TV star's overnight rise.
Gotti hopped on Instagram this week to applaud Cardi for overcoming obstacles to dominate the Billboard music charts by herself.
Congrats. Congrats. Congrats. And all females. She is doing this without a crew really. When I met with her last week. That's what I was so impressed with. Most every female rapper had a crew. Cardi is a lone female soldier. Congrats. Congrats. Congrats. @iamcardib And these ain't Bloody Shoes. These are CARDI'S Shoes. Congrats to Shaft and everyone at KSR Group. And Atlantic Records. @littleburger I see you.

Earlier in the week, Cardi's hit record knocked Swift from the top Billboard Hot 100 spot.
She became the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill in 1998 to top the Billboard Hot 100 without the assistance of another featured artist. The last female rapper to nearly reach this milestone was Nicki Minaj in 2014, whose single "Anaconda" failed to knock Swift from #1, where she thrived for three weeks with "Shake It Off."

Recently, New York rappers French Montana and Remy Ma boasted about Cardi's success.
