Cardi B paid her respects to Mac Miller after beating him for Best Rap Album Sunday night at the Grammys.
Which is surprisingly the only category the late rapper has ever been nominated in.
Cardi won her first Grammy for Invasion of Privacy and even though Mac was not mentioned in her acceptance speech, she made sure to send him and his family some love later on backstage.
After Cardi beat out her male competition – Mac Miller, Travis Scott, Pusha T, and Nipsey Hustle – she filmed a video of her giving a shout out to Mac and his family, who was invited to the award show in hopes of a win.
“I read an article that Mac Miller’s family said that if he don’t win, they want me to win, so I’m sharing this Grammy with you, motherf-ker! Rest in Peace!” Cardi yelled in a video while celebrating the win.
She also posted a screenshot of the article, published by Us Weekly, captioning the photo “WE WON A F-KIN GRAMMY.”
But, before these shout-outs were made, Ariana Grande tweeted and deleted some shade at Cardi when she saw her late ex-boyfriend’s Grammy loss live from her couch.
Tweeting “trash, f-ck, and literal bullsh-t.” She also posted a response to a fan that said “THEY INVITED HIS PARENTS OUT. NO.”
Following the online backlash, Ari replied saying “Nothing to do with her. good for her. i promise.”
But after Cardi’s social media tribute, the 7 Rings singer chilled out and even commented six black heart emojis on her post.
At the end of the day, it was a big night for both artists who got to celebrate their first Grammy win.
Especially for Cardi, who made history at the 61st annual Grammy awards as she walked out as the first female solo winner to take home the award for Best Rap Album.
Which was well deserved after seven past nominations.
The I Like It singer was living her best life even before her win as she strutted the red carpet in her vintage Mulger alongside yep, cheating husband Offset, who abrasively invaded her spotlight all night long.
The two were sharing all kinds of PDA throughout the night and he even joined her on stage while she accepted her award, hand-in-hand. It was a lot.
I think it is safe to say the couple is definitely back on.
And they even touched tongues on the red carpet just to prove it.
Cardi also performed her latest single “Money” where she wore a catsuit and showed off her flexibility skills while
humping twerking on a piano.
Take our money, Cardi! You were #thriving at the 2019 Grammys.
