Cardi B responded to a Rolling Stone article that placed her album IOP above some of the greats of Hip Hop. Cardi B then deleted her tweet after leaving fans confused.
The rap star received backlash for her Rolling Stone ranking of number 16th album of all time for hip hop. The female rapper went on social media to address fans as seen in the video above. In a now deleted post on Twitter, she stated, “Soo let me get this straight? All the albums that y’all was crying and Hollering should be over IOP y’all didn’t make their sales jump but made mind jump 120+ spots in sales? THANKS FOR THE EASY EFFORTLESS PROMO…. I ain’t have to lift a finger.”
Sitting pretty at number 16, Invasion of Privacy is ranked above seminal hip-hop albums by rap icons such as Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Eric B. and Rakim, and Lil Kim, one of the first (and very few) successful female rappers.
A rapper that has dominated in the last decade has been Drake, but he did not crack the top ten list.
Drake is the most contested artist in any definitive list of the greatest hip-hop albums, but his 2011 sullen rap output, Take Care, is at an acceptable number 11.
