Cardi B has entered the chat.
In a recent Twitter conversation, TDE President Punch recently rattled off some names of whom he feels are the “next superstars” in rap. And while Doja Cat, Lil Nas X, Jack Harlow, and Baby Keem are all part and parcel of the “correct” answers, Punch initially didn’t mention the leader of the Bardi Gang.
I’m curious, who are the next superstars in rap?

That’s when Cardi B took to her Twitter to put her money where her mouth is, pointing out that she makes more than a million dollars per show. She also shared screenshots from a purported booking agent, who pointed out that recently made her an offer of two shows for more than $2 million.
“Over a M a show with 1 album,” Cardi B wrote. “BIG SUPERSTAR are you dumb? Waiting on my agent got like 3 overseas, one for 2Ms.”
Later, according to Complex, Punch clarified and claimed that Cardi B is considered a current superstar, not an up-and-coming one.
“Cardi reiterated that her post—which has since been deleted from Twitter—was about the ongoing debate on the app, where Punch asked who had ‘a legitimate shot at being the next superstar.’ While Cardi may have only one studio record to her name, given that she’s already a Grammy-winning chart-topper, it seems Punch may already believe her to be in those conversations as a current star, and not the ‘next,'” reported the outlet.
And since Cardi B has an impressive estimated net worth of $40 million, we aren’t too surprised that the superstar could be bringing in figures like that for shows alone.
