Cardi B’s Dancehall Roots Are Showing

People always compare her to Lil Kim and Foxy Brown, but like those legendary femcees Cardi B’s got more than a touch of Lady Saw in the mix. Shortly after she premiered on Love & Hip Hop New York, Cardi made her musical debut alongside Popcaan on the remix to Shaggy’s Sting International–produced banger “Boom Boom.” So it should come as no suprise that the Bronx-born girl of Trini-Dominican descent has returned to the bashment zone on her latest album, GBMV2 (Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 2). On her collab with Konshens (not to mention Hood Celebrityy—a tatted up dancehall queen whose IG bio calls her “The Female Kartel”), the stripper-turned-reality-star-turned-recording-artist tells Mr. “Bruk Off” to “Back It Up” and he sounds only too happy to oblige. Note: When is Konshens gonna get signed to a major label deal? Hint: Maybe sooner than you think! Audio After The Jump…

“Gal mek it clap fi the don” Run that…
