Cardi B is not afraid when it comes to speaking her mind. In a recent interview with i-D, the rapper goes on to divulge in a number of topics from being bullied at school to the incredible success of "Bodak Yellow." Having worked her way from dancing in the Bronx to topping the Billboard 100 charts, Cardi’s ever-growing presence in the music industry is a force to be reckoned with.

While songs like "MotorSport" have drawn attention to her sexually explicit lyrics, the self-proclaimed feminist wants to remove the stigma from the word and change how women are represented in the industry.

“Being a feminist is such a great thing and some people feel like someone like me can’t be as great as that," the rapper told i-D. "But then some people are smart but they don’t have no common sense. They think feminism is great and only a woman that can speak properly, that has a degree, who is a boss, a businessperson […] they think only Michelle Obama can be a feminist."

She goes on to add: “But being a feminist is real simple; it’s that a woman can do things the same as a man. I’m equal to a n----. Anything a man can do, I can do. I can finesse, I can hustle. We have the same freedom. I was top of the charts. I’m a woman and I did that. I do feel equal to a man."

The rapper also discussed using her background in dance as a means of escaping domestic violence, getting an education, and becoming independent by way of making her own money.

"I was seeing money that I feel like I would’ve never seen ever. At first I started off making $200 or $300, sometimes not making money at all because you’ve gotta pay your house fee and my house fees were very expensive. But after I got good at it there was nights where I would leave with $2,000 or $3,000. When I was 21 I had $20,000 saved up. When I was 22 I already had $35,000 saved — in singles."
