Cardi B Fans Out While Meeting Missy Elliott
Since she's reached superstar status, Cardi B has caught the attention of many major celebrities, but now she has finally come face-to-face with a female rap icon she respects.
While attending Warner Music Group's pre-Grammy party Thursday night (Jan. 25), the Bronx native got to meet Missy Elliott, who has previously expressed her support of Cardi over the success of "Bodak Yellow."
While recording their encounter on Instagram, Cardi speaks in a teasing voice about meeting the veteran rapper and producer, stating how hype she is for the opportunity.
"I met Missy Elliott! I met Missy Elliott!" she exclaims. "Bitch, I'm hype. I don't give a fuck. So what? We hype as fuck, nigga."
While Missy doesn't say anything in the video, she does flash a smile and shows her amusement for Cardi's enthusiasm.
This isn't the first time that the "Bartier Cardi" hitmaker has expressed her fandom over another celebrity. Earlier this year, she was able to meet Beyoncé at Made in America in Philadelphia, after her set in front of thousands of fans. She's also had the chance to meet J. Cole, Jennifer Lopez and other major stars since she's climbed to the top of the charts.
