The rapper also shut it down at Coachella in April, giving fans a fun performance that featured guests like YG, Kehlani, and Chance the Rapper.
In April, Cardi’s sister Hennessy hinted that the rapper was expecting a girl, writing in a since-deleted Instagram post, “NOW that baby Cardi is coming is like it’s coming true! I’m going to be able to hold baby you and give her all the kisses and hugs!”
This will be Cardi’s first child and the fourth for Offset.
