Cardi B wishes we all knew the Kanye West she worked with

Cardi B is back with a new song, “Hot S—” starring Kanye West and Lil Durk. The track, released on Friday, is her first single since 2021.

In the flashy trap-beat-bop, Cardi brags about her superior rap skills and personal taste: “I’m obnoxious / Bought a house and joined another, I know I’m blessed / Everybody wanna be a gang.” , huh, no more seats left/ Bad b— contest, it wouldn’t be a contest.”

The “Bodak Yellow” artist recently spoke to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe about how the song had been in the works “for a minute,” what it was like working with West, and her future plans.

“That song predates ‘WAP’ a bit in my opinion,” Cardi said. “I think I recorded that song there around 2019. Everyone has always loved this record, but I always felt that this record was so manly. I don’t know if people want to hear that from me.”

Because of this “manly” energy, Cardi held off on completing the track until she found the right rappers to master the heavy beat. Lil Durk and West – now known as Ye – fit right in, with Cardi particularly interested in the energy Ye brought to his performance.

“Kanye gave me this verse a few months ago while he was in the media because of all the things that were going on,” Cardi said. “And I like how his verses are — they’re personal, but not that personal.”

“All the things that were going on” for West were his public split from Kim Kardashian, his falling outs with Pete Davidson and Trevor Noah, and his whirlwind romance with “Uncut Gems” actress Julia Fox.

Cardi added that she wished the public could know the “real” Ye.

“I am so happy that he gave me this verse. And I’ve had a lot of conversations with Kanye West,” Cardi told Lowe. “I’ve learned so much about him and he’s such an amazing sweet person. I feel like I wish it on a lot of people [could] Have conversations with him so they can just see him.”

Lowe reinforced Cardi’s point by calling West a “really sweet, thoughtful, very intelligent and ambitious guy” and said, “The Kanye that we see as a person is the Kanye that people assume is the real person.” is.”

Cardi also spoke about working with Lil Durk, saying that his verse is “really street” and that she can imagine Bronx kids hearing and really liking his flow.

A Bronx native, Cardi has always been proud of her heritage and supportive of her community. In January, she paid for the funeral expenses of victims of a Bronx apartment fire that killed 17 people.

The “I Like It” hitmaker also told Lowe about her future plans: “Right after this record I have another one that’s different from this record and right after that I want to put the album together.”

And while this should be an exciting time for the often-confident rapper, she has expressed some fears about releasing new music and getting back on the road.

“I’m preparing for a festival and I haven’t performed in front of an audience since 2019. Only my body, the way I’m programmed, is a bit different now. Right now I’m trying to break my shell with everything,” Cardi said. “I’m really nervous; I haven’t released a single since Up, it’s been almost a year and a half, so I’m just breaking in.”
