Cardi B Lands Her First Movie Deal: Report
It's been a year since Cardi B left Love & Hip-Hop New York, VH1's popular reality series that helped catapult the budding rapper to fame. But after gaining traction with the release of her breakout hit "Bodak Yellow," Cardi is heading back to the screens, this time for her first-ever movie role: According to TMZ, the "Bartier Cardi" rapper inked her first movie deal and will be landing on the big screen very soon.
Sources tell TMZ that Cardi will begin filming for the movie as early as March. No further details have surfaced about what type of movie it is or who else will star in the film, but earlier this month, Cardi posted a message on her Instagram story teasing that something exciting is on the horizon for her.
"My biggest dream might come true this month or next month," she wrote. "Crossing fingers... I talked about this a lot in interviews." Cardi also landed a role on BET's now-defunct TV drama Being Mary Jane last year in the role of Mercedes.
TMZ also reports that because Cardi had to turn down a few gigs to start filming, the rapper could be making a pretty penny for her upcoming movie role.
Billboard has reached out to Cardi B's reps for comment.
