Cardi B has hit out at racial disparities in the fashion world, explaining that black artists face discrimination despite being some of the most recognisable and influential faces within the industry.
In a new chat with Interview Magazine, the rapper explained that rap artists face less favourable treatment than their white contemporaries within the industry.
She said “When it comes to fashion, hip-hop is a big influence” “And yet, she said Black artists have the hardest time getting pulls from designers and the hardest time getting seats at their fashion shows, and barely get endorsed by big fashion brands when they literally make the trend.”
The chat saw Cardi in conversation with Mariah Carey, who proceeded to ask her if she thought that the fashion or record industry was inherently racist.
In the same interview, Cardi explained how female rappers face “crazy expectations”.
