Cardi B wins Songwriter of the Year at ASCAP’s Rhythm & Soul Music Awards
Cardi B became the first female rapper to be called Songwriter of the Year at ASCAP’s Rhythm & Spirit Music Honors on Thursday.
Hitting out at those who say she does not deserve her success, she included: “Everybody constantly wishes to state I made it due to this or made it due to that. I made it because I worked my a ** off… Thanks quite, ASCAP. This is an honor for me.”.
Other tunes honored at the event included Drake’s Nice of what, and also Ella Mai’s Boo ‘d Up.
According to Billboard publication, Cardi expressed her joy after approving the honor from ASCAP Chief Executive Officer Elizabeth Matthews.
“Occasionally I feel like I’m not doing also much because when it comes to women rap artists, it’s like you’re never doing too much or they’re always pitting you versus another women rapper. Individuals on my team are like ‘Cardi, you’re crazy.
The 26-year-old celebrity, that was also honored at the ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire hotel ballroom in Los Angeles for her tracks Bartier Cardi, Ring, and also I Like It, took home the most significant prize awarded on the evening by American Culture of Composers, Authors and also Publishers (ASCAP) chiefs.
Motown Records’ 60th wedding anniversary was also honored at the event, with its 89-year-old founder Berry Gordy, Jr. and current president Ethiopia Habtemariam gathering the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Heritage Award.
Rapper and lobbyist T.I. received the organization’s inaugural Voice of the Society Honor.
