Cardi​ ​B​ ​talks​ ​possible​ ​album​ ​delay,​ ​Nicki​ ​Minaj,​ ​Offset on The Breakfast Club

Cardi B keeps working as the BET Hip-Hop Awards honor her with nine nominations and "Bodak Yellow" aims for a no. 1 chart spot.

The​ ​nominations​ ​are​ ​in​ ​for​ ​the​ ​2017​ ​BET​ ​Hip​ ​Hop​ ​Awards,​ ​and​ ​three​ ​rap​ ​acts​ ​are​ ​tied​ ​in​ ​the lead​ ​for​ ​a​ ​total​ ​of​ ​nine​ ​award​ ​nominations.​ ​Kendrick​ ​Lamar and​ ​DJ Khaled​ are both established stars who may be expected to reign over the BET Hip Hop Awards, but the third act tied for nine nominations is Cardi​ ​B, who has taken the rap world by storm in 2017.​ She​ ​stopped​ ​by​ ​The​ ​Breakfast​ ​Club​ ​today​ ​to​ ​chop​ ​it​ ​up​ ​with​ ​Angela​ ​Yee, DJ​ ​Envy​ ​and​ ​Charlamagne​ ​tha​ ​God.

"Hey​ ​y'all,"​ ​shouted​ ​Cardi​ ​B​ ​as​ ​she​ ​jumped​ ​off​ ​the​ ​interview.​ ​After​ ​being​ ​congratulated​ ​on​ ​her​ ​nine​ ​2017​ ​BET​ ​Hip​ ​Hop​ ​Awards ​nominations - including​ ​Single​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Year,​ ​Best​ ​New​ ​Artist​, ​and​ ​Best​​ ​Hip​ ​Hop​ ​Video -​ ​the​ ​Bronx​ ​native discussed​ ​recent​ ​successes,​ ​a​ ​possible​ ​album​ ​delay​ ​and​ ​how​ ​she​ ​met​ ​Offset.

"Timing​ ​is​ ​everything"​ ​is​ ​a​ ​concept​ ​that Cardi has been reminded of a lot lately. ​​Her​ ​debut​ ​album​ ​was​ ​expected​ ​to hit​ ​retailers​ ​"next​ ​month"​ ​after​ ​she​ ​made​ ​the​ ​announcement​ ​during​ ​her​ ​performance​ ​at​ ​the​ ​Made​ ​In America​ ​festival.​ ​But​ ​it​ ​seems​ ​now​ ​like​ ​she's​ ​considering​ ​pushing​ ​the​ ​release​ ​of​ ​the​ ​album​ ​back.

"You​ ​just​ ​change​ ​your​ ​mind​ ​all​ ​the​ ​time.​ ​I​ ​might​ ​have​ ​ten​ ​songs​ ​that​ ​I​ ​think​ ​is​ ​popping,​ ​then​ ​one​ ​week later​ ​I​ ​do​ ​another​ ​song​ ​and​ ​I'm​ ​like​ ​'Is​ ​it​ ​this​ ​one?'​ ​Then​ ​I​ ​have​ ​to​ ​have​ ​so​ ​many​ ​other​ ​people​ ​hear​ ​it,​" ​said Cardi,​ ​who​ ​repeatedly added that she's intent on proving that her music career isn't a gimmick.

Accompanied​ ​by​ ​her​ ​boyfriend​ ​Offset,​ ​Cardi​ ​dodged​ ​questions​ ​involving​ ​whether​ ​she's​ ​in​ ​love​ ​or​ ​not.​ ​She did​ ​however​ ​speak​ ​on​ ​where​ ​the​ ​two​ ​blazing​ ​hot​ ​rap​ ​stars​ ​first​ ​made​ ​their​ ​connection.​ ​"I​ ​met​ ​him​ ​in​ ​a party,"​ ​she​ ​said​ ​before​ ​changing​ ​the​ ​subject. Another subject she was hesitant to say too much about was her rumored beef with Nicki Minaj.

When asked if her scene-stealing verse on G-Eazy's latest single "No Limit" was aimed at the "Roman's Revenge" rap star, the BX bombshell said, "People don't understand, I got like beef with ten bitches still in the hood, and I still be in the hood." She did, however, admit that her and Minaj have spoken.
