Cardi B Shares 5 Things You Should Know About Her

The hip-hop star says her music will "boost your self-esteem."

Hip-hop artist Cardi B grew up in the Bronx but spent a lot of time at her grandmother's in Washington Heights, which might be why she has "such a thick accent," she says.

In Billboard's series "You Should Know," Cardi B shares some fun facts about her, including that her favorite food fluctuates between Chinese, Mexican and her grandma's cooking and that two of her favorite artists are Madonna and Lady Gaga.

"People should listen to my music because it's good," she exclaims. "I can make a Valley girl from California and make her feel like she's a gangsta-ass bitch from the Bronx."
