Cardi B attends Rihanna's 3rd Annual Clara Lionel Foundation Diamond Ball at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Sept. 14, 2017.

The "Invasion of Privacy" rapper's interview with DJ Whoo Kid airs Saturday on Shade 45.

Every publication you look at, every radio station you listen to is featuring Cardi B nonstop these days due to her smash breakout record Invasion of Privacy, and the tour continues: Cardi B sat down with DJ Whoo Kid for his SiriusXM show Whoolywood Shuffle on Shade 45, and she talked about everything from having sex while pregnant to the Illuminati.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper has been outspoken about how much she hates comparisons to Nicki Minaj and other female rappers. In a particularly funny moment of the interview, Cardi asks DJ Whoo Kid why male rappers are never pitted against each other, since they are the ones who so often sound the same. “I see all these guys coming out at the same time, and most of them actually do sound alike. Sometimes I be like, ‘Who is this?’” she said.

“Why you don’t do that to them? Why it gotta be girls? Every rapper right now, like Nicki, Remy, me, some girls that’s on the come-up. It’s like, I don’t feel like nobody sound like each other,” she continued.

She then delved into her colorful album art and noted that she definitely didn’t want to do the whole ass-out, stripper image for the cover. “It was just so crazy, so different, so pop. Not too girly, I didn’t want it to be too girly, I didn’t want it to be too sexy.”

Whoo soon made the link to the idea of female empowerment and how Cardi's music sparks a certain confidence from ladies in the club. “I know I make them violent, because let me tell you,” Cardi joked. “I have gone to clubs and seen like 10 different fights.”
