Cardi B deactivated her Twitter account following the insurmountable requests from fans who want her to come out with new music.

On Friday (March 5), the “Up” emcee, overwhelmed by the pressure to drop more records, utilized Twitter voice notes to articulate her level of frustration with supporters who are growing impatient as they wait for her second studio album.

“Yo, I really hate when people start acting like brats and start really pissing me off. I don’t like that shit,” she said, per Rap-Up. “I wanna make it very clear. After I dropped I said, ‘I’m gonna take my time. I gotta finish my album.’”

“If I say I’m gonna finish my album, it doesn’t mean that I’m gonna drop in March, it doesn’t mean that I’m gonna drop in April,” the star continued. “Let me do this fucking shit because everybody expect[s] me to fucking fail, so when I drop my album, I want it to be immaculate with everything great.”

Cardi asked her Bardi Gang to refrain from sending her discouraging messages like, “I thought you was gonna drop the album,” especially after the release of a new single. “My mans,” she continued. “I just dropped a song three fucking weeks ago.”

Toward the end of her rant, the Invasion of Privacy star explained that she’s expanded beyond music with hopes to become a billionaire like fellow New Yorker JAY-Z.

“How ya’ll expect me to be a great business woman?” she asked. “How ya’ll expect me to make it to Forbes if I’m not doing other business ventures besides music? You should learn from JAY-Z. You don’t just become a billionaire with fucking making music.”

Cardi then deleted her Twitter account, later taking to Instagram and “Good Morning America” to announce another one of her recent money moves. The Bronx native is launching a limited edition fashion doll with Real Women Are that will be modeled after her.
