Cardi B announced on July 11 that she gave birth to her first child, Kulture Kiari Cephus, with husband Offset. Fans immediately wondered if the baby’s name is a reference to Migos‘ last two albums, 2017’s Culture and its successor Culture II, released earlier this year.
?But the “I Like It” rapper had a different explanation: “anything else woulda been basic.”
In April, Cardi appeared on The Ellen Show to discuss her pregnancy reveal on Saturday Night Live; she revealed that Offset was responsible for the name. “My dude named the baby,” she said. “I really like the name. It’s like almost tricky, but when it comes out, it’s like ‘Ah!’”
Kulture’s middle name, Kiari, comes from her father, as Offset’s real name is Kiari Kendrell Cephus.
