Cardi B says she sometimes worries about giving her children too much.
The “Hot Shit” rapper recently expressed her concerns about spoiling her kids in an interview with writer Amelia Chia for Vogue Singapore. This comes days before the rapper and her husband Offset gifted their daughter Kulture $50,000 for her 4th birthday after a trip to Candytopia on July 13, according to People Magazine. (Offset posted a video to Instagram of Kulture holding a stack of cash that he encouraged her to call “50.”)
“They need to know to never feel comfortable. Don’t ever feel like, ‘I’m going to get it because I’m Cardi and Offset’s kid,'” she told Vogue Singapore in an interview released on July 11. “They are never going to know what struggle feels like, so they might not have that hunger I had to leave the streets.”
Cardi B has openly discussed the struggles she faced growing up in the Bronx that lead her to work at an Amish deli before getting a gig at a strip club and becoming a rapper and reality television star on “Love & Hip Hop New York.”
“Even though my kids are well-off, I want them to know that when you work for things and achieve it, it’s more respected — especially when people see that you bust your ass for it,” she continued.
Cardi B (whose birth name is Belcalis Almánzar) and Offset (Kiari Cephus) also have a 7-month-old son named Wave.
They additionally co-parent the three children Offset had before they married in September of 2017: Kalea, 7, Kody, 7, and Jordan, 12, from previous relationships. Cardi B described the children as a “blessing” in an April 2022 interview with Essence that also included a photo shoot of the blended family.
After revealing to the Vogue Singapore reporter that she enrolled her daughter Kulture in swim lessons, dance lessons, and private tutoring sessions, she asked, “Am I doing too much? I just want my daughter to be good.”
“I want her to have a little bit of something forever. I can’t swim, so I want my daughter to be able to swim,” she added.
“I want her to do amazing things when she grows up. She can jet-ski or go on a boat. I want her to be smarter than me — just be the better version of me.”
