Cardi B Admits To Having Anxiety

Opening up about her mental health in a new interview with Speedy Morman on Complex‘s 360 with Morman, Cardi B revealed that anxiety left her too “afraid” to release new music.

“I just feel like I lost myself like with everything like, you know like a lot of like music commenters and everything and a lot of people just be like, you know, ‘She’s afraid to drop an album, she’s afraid to drop music.” “Last year, I barely dropped music. I was just afraid to do everything” said the superstar rapper.

Now 31-years old, the Grammy award winner admitted that her severe anxiety affected every area of her life, not just her music, adding:

“I was afraid to go live, I was afraid to post a picture, I was afraid to go to the club, and then the next day seeing people, what they going to say about me, and everything.” “I was afraid to do everything.”

Born Belcalis Marlenis Cephus, the musician confirmed that she recorded a verse for a remix of Ice Spice’s breakthrough ‘Munch,’ but later scrapped the performance because she was too worried about what people would think of.

“I did do a thing for Ice Spice, but I just did not like how it sound.” “I love the record… You know it being on a drill beat, it’s not as easy as it look… I was like, ‘They’re gonna drag me and they’re going to drag the song bad.’”

Despite her mental health challenges, Cardi vowed not to let her anxiety get in the way of her forthcoming 2024 LP drop that follows the two new songs ‘Like What (Freestyle)’ and ‘Enough (Miami)’ released this month.

“I’m not letting my anxiety, I’m not letting what haters say, I’m not letting what fans say stop me.” “If I do a song, I’m gonna just f**king drop it.”
