Cardi B already showed her ability to make a club hit with her chart-topping single "Bodak Yellow," but the arrival of her album Invasion of Privacy proved something else: she's got bars.
From her amped up "Get Up 10" intro to her empowering, SZA-featured outro "I Do," Cardi is out to prove that can truly rhyme. Invasion of Privacy showcases the charisma, wordplay, and introspection that we've come to expect from the lineage of New York City rappers, along with an ability to craft songs. Read below for some of the REVOLT TV staff's favorite rhymes from the album.
"Leave his texts on read, leave his balls on blue / Put it on airplane mode so none of those calls come through…" — "I Do"

"I'm a gangsta in a dress, I'm bully in the bed/ Only time that I'm a lady is when I lay these hoes to rest!" – "I Do"
"I started speakin' my mind and tripled my views/Real bitch – only thing fake is the boobs." – "Get Up 10"
"This is sweet pussy Saturday, that's just what Plies say/I said "Bae, it's a snack," he said it's a entrée" — "Money Bag"
"Look, I just want to break up all your shit/Call your mama phone, let her know that she raised a bitch" — "Thru Your Phone"
