The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) has named Cardi B as its ASCAP Songwriter of the Year for the first time. Cardi B is also the first female rapper to do so.
“I just want to say I’m very grateful,’ Cardi B began after accepting the award from ASCAP CEO Elizabeth Matthews.
“Sometimes I feel like B ’m not doing too? much because when it comes to female rappers, it’s like you’re never doing too much or they’re always pitting you against another female rapper. People on my team are like ‘Cardi, you’re crazy. You won a Grammy. Cardi, all your songs are charting.”
