In an interview with XXL she spoke about the freestyle; “I was a little bit scared because you know, like, being a rapper has always been my dream so if nobody liked it, that would mean my dream is destroyed,” she told XXL. “And then there’s a lot of things for example, like, I was a little nervous because I know a lot of artists that come from Love & Hip Hop or any reality show, it’s hard for people to take them serious as an artist. I didn’t really want to put my music out there on [the show] even though they asked me a lot of times because when it comes to things like this, I plan it out.”
“Red Barz” is a great example of Cardi’s skill as an MC.
