Cardi B wants credit for the new Lucky Charms cereal

‘ROLLIE GOT CHARMS LOOK LIKE FROSTED FLAKES?!!!’

2017 was the year of Cardi B. The New York rapper killed it with her first chart-topping single “Bodak Yellow”, rocked the front rows of New York Fashion Week, and got that hallowed Instagram selfie with Beyoncé. Now, only nine days in to 2018, the musician is claiming that she directly influenced the release of ‘Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes’, demanding that she receives two per cent of profits.

Cardi is of course referring to her lyric “Rollie got charms, look like Frosted Flakes”, from her biggest banger “Bodak Yellow”. Taking to her Instagram, the reality star posted (in ways that she tends to): “They Hurd BODAK YELLOW and was like ROLLIE GOT CHARMS LOOK LIKE FROSTED FLAKES?!!! I think we have something right here !!! I want 2 (per cent) of sale.”

Considering the track reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 – which is the first time a solo female rapper has bagged the top spot in 19 years – received praise from the likes of Missy Elliott and Nicki Minaj, and was performed by Janet Jackson on her State of the World tour, Cardi B could very well have influenced the creative minds over at General Mills – who isn’t singing to the lil bitches over their cereal bowls?

Besides her potential two per cent profits, it looks as if 2018 is to be another incredible year for the artist, with the release of her debut studio album. Back in November, the rapper hinted that the full-length would land in January, and a few days before Christmas she released the album’s second single “Bartier Cardi” with 21 Savage.
