How Cardi B Stole the Summer

Up and coming artist Cardi B has taken the world by storm this past summer with “Bodak Yellow,” named after rapper Kodak Black. Cardi’s flow on the song mirrors Kodak’s flow in his single “No Flocking.” While Kodak’s single only got to number 95 on the Billboard Hot 100, Cardi was able to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
