Last month, Rolling Stone took a crack at the best rap albums ever.
Cardi B's Invasion Of Privacy was 16, ahead of such classics as Nas's Illmatic, Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III, Dr. Dre's The Chronic, and Eminem's The Marshall Mathers LP.
The positioning of Cardi's debut album caused much debate -- and very little of it was flattering to Bardi.
In an interview with Angela Yee's Lip Service, Cardi opined that Rolling Stone set her up for mockery. [Jump to 51 minutes.]
“They was dragging me like, they say ‘How dare them put Cardi before Nas.' How dare they this and that. I was like, oh my goodness. I just woke up and I’m getting my ass dragged. I didn’t even ask for this. I do understand how people will feel sentimental about things. Because certain albums below mine are real classic. But I'm like b*tch I didn't ask for it." Cardi said.
“Outlets like that they do will do certain sh*t to make it go viral. Of course, they’re gonna use a bitch like me, but at number 16 before Biggie because it’s gonna start a stir ... I become a punching bag ... Yeah, it was, like, a setup. Y'all n*ggas tried to set me up. Rolling Stone, you trying to set me up. You got my ass dragged on a f*cking Tuesday for no reason.”
Sounds about right.
