Cardi B has been riding high with her success in reality television and music and she’s just added a fab spread with VIBE Viva to her magazine slay. The rapper/reality star looks absolutely gorgeous on the November 2016 digital cover donning a beautiful pink and gold embellished dress with sleek, waistlength tresses and a face beat to perfection.

Inside the feature, we get a sense of who Cardi B really is (she shot the entire spread at her grandmother’s Washington Heights apartment), what her past as a stripper has taught her and what motivates her hustle as a young Caribbean woman.

What she says to women that want to be just like her:


I don’t feel like anyone should follow what I did. I don’t feel like you should be walking around thinking, “Yeah, I want to be a dancer.” But I’ll say this: always have a goal, always have a second plan. Because in every field, whether it’s dancing or something else, you gotta work hard for it. If a girl was to ask me, “You think I should be a stripper?” I would tell her straight up, “You could be. You gonna make money. But you gonna spend a lot of it, too, and you might start using drugs.” Because there’s so much young girls that go in the strip club and some people be like, “Loosen up, get a drink. Loosen up, pop a molly,” and then you start doing it regularly.
