American rapper and Grammy award winner, Cardi B has spoken out following the controversies that trailed her Grammy win on Sunday.
The 26-year-old edged out Mac Miller, Nipsey Hussle, Pusha T, Travis Scott to win Rap Album of the Year, making her the first female solo artist to win the category since the inception of the Grammy.

Didn’t go to sleep in my bed sometimes for four days, pregnant… while everybody was harassing me like ‘You can’t do it…’
