Cardi B can count Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington as a fan.
Washington spoke to The Root while on a press tour for the Broadway revival of The Iceman Cometh. Uncle Denzel was asked to rap the lyrics to Cardi’s “Bodak Yellow,” the first hit from Cardi’s debut album, and he delivered.
While the actor had fun delivering his rendition of “Bodak Yellow,” he got a bit more serious when dropping advice for the rapper. “Don’t believe the hype. Stay true to yourself. Keep it real, for real,” he said.
The first half of 2018 has been all about Cardi. The rapper recently performed at Coachella, right after announcing that she and boyfriend Offset are expecting their first child together. She performed on Saturday Night Live and currently has the number one album in the country.
Looks like everything’s coming up Cardi.
